  • Apple's 7 minute video helps you decide which iPhone 13 has the best camera for you
    on 19th September 2021 at 2:00 pm

    Apple has just released a 7 minute video detailing some of the biggest upgrades to the iPhone 13 camera systems. If we wanted you to walk away with one take-home from the keynote, other than the Cinematic Mode everyone's talking about, it'd be this: Apple crammed the rather large 1/1.9"-type sensor with 1.7µm pixels from last year's largest iPhone 12 Pro Max into this year's smallest iPhone 13 Mini. Meanwhile, all models saw modest sensor size increases, and you no longer have to choose the […]

I went straight from a manual focus SLR to digital cameras, so I've never felt those pangs of nostalgia, myself: it just sounded like a failed technology that even […]

As such, Canon is quick to point out that there is much more to the EOS R3 than just Eye Control AF – but Eye Control AF is a novel feature, […]
