I'm tired of trying to acquire the latest iPhone. I've got 5G, 256G storage, a speedy phone, a camera that does it all, and a large colorful brilliant screen. I'm staying with my 12 Pro Max until it dies!
Alas, physics may just about make this near on impossible to do, unless there's a technological breakthrough. Even periscope lenses will require a minimum bump to let in sufficient light and accommodate the sensor size (smaller sensor = less light = lower quality image).
My guess is that this setup allows for optical portrait mode with the standard lens. On my 8+, portrait mode is in zoom, which can limit it’s use, make the flash less effective due to distance, etc.I'm with you on this. I love a telephoto lens, and rarely use the wide angle... and when I do, I'm never happy with how it ends up looking - I'm sure I don't have enough of an artistic eye to get it right. But the telephoto lens has pragmatic use that I miss when I don't have it.
That said, I think we're in the minority.
Actually I would take an improved camera anytime over the battery life that many people are obsessed with for some strange reason. I can charge my phone every evening when I go to sleep but I can not make the camera any better. These are not just phones now, these are pocket computers and photography/videography gear. Camera bump? I don't care, as long as it gives me improved photography/videography.That's what we have been pining for! Larger camera bumps.
I wish they would make a flush bar again. One can hope.
I find the wide angle really useful on several small room and tight space photos. I thought I would want long lens, but I I'm appreciated wide angle many times more than I though.Please please please swap the zoom with the ultra wide on the regular sized phone. Leave the nearly useless ultra wide lens for the “pros” who would make the best use of it.
The cost is weight. If you use the Max, you might already be feeling like the combination of it's weight and how wide it is makes it really uncomfortable to hold when answering a call for instance, or in one-handed use. Adding 50-100g of weight to make it flush with extra battery will make it simply too heavy for many more people who already feel the phones are at the limit of comfort.All I wish is that they make the back flush with the bump. That extra thickness will probably be used for a beefier battery, a win-win.
Physics. There’s a reason that DSLR Cameras are so deep. Stacking sensors and lenses takes a lot of space. Additionally, if Apple could achieve the same quality with no camera bump for a solid slate, they would have.No it doesn't. What is your scientific basis for this comment?
