The best camera, we often hear, is the one that is always with you – your iPhone. As you read these words, your copy of the world’s most successful – and profitable – product, or its Android competitor, is probably within easy reach. The younger you are, the more time you spend with your iPhone, staring at its screen for a mind blowing 6-7 hours each day if you are a Millennial or a Generation Zer. Every day, 250 million photos are uploaded to Facebook, and another 50 million are added to Instagram. As predicted by the late Steve Jobs, the iPhone has become “the one device” – including a superb camera – that now dominates our lives.

Stebbins Gulch – January 2019

In the fall of 2021, Apple introduced the new iPhone 13, 13 Pro, and 13 Pro Max models, with major updates to the camera systems and associated photography apps. I upgraded my iPhone XS to an 11 Pro in November, 2019 and again to a 13 Pro in November, 2021. Since March, 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic exploded, I and my fellow Ohioans have been in lockdown mode at home for many days, giving me ample time to review the new iPhone 11 and iPhone 13 models and incorporate their updated features in my eBook, iPhone Landscape & Nature Photography, which now has 163 pages, more than 175 photos, 60 screenshots, and about 34,300 words of text. 

Some of the most exciting camera updates in the iPhone 11, 12 and 13 models are listed below:

* A new ultra-wide-angle camera with a 35mm-equivalent focal length of 13mm – great for scenic photography, and a more powerful telephoto lens (3X optical zoom in the 13 Pro and Pro Max);

* Faster, multi-element camera lenses with optical image stabilization for sharper photos in low light, with less noise.   

* Improvements to Smart HDR (High Dynamic Range) and Portrait mode, together with a Lidar scanner,  for better control of depth-of-field;

* A new Macro mode for the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max, which allows you to focus on subjects as close as 2cm from the iPhone;

* An option to shoot ProRAW (DNG) files for improved image quality, with the iPhone 13 Pro and Pro Max; 

* Photographic Styles for still photos, and a new Cinematic mode, allowing depth-of-field control and beautiful soft focus effects in video;

* An enhanced Photo Editor with many new tools and other features;

* Night mode – which uses the power of computational photography and the blazingly fast new iPhone A13-A15 bionic processors to produce dramatic improvements in photographs taken in low light and at night;
