Камера iPhone 11: ультимативный обзор и сравнение с Google Camera на Pixel 2 XL


Apple paid much attention to
the camera in this year, there were Such new features and improvements
as the update mode Smart HDR, night mode, super-wide-angle
module, Deep Fusion, updated portrait mode, Audio Zoom
and many other things – in general, so quite
heavily pumped chamber. I have tried to carry out tests
in various scenarios, to give a more or less
objective assessment: what iPhone 11 is good, but what Apple needed
more work to both at least catch up with competitors. And we start this review with
the camera application, because that the result-the result,
and the application must also It is fast, functional,
and most importantly – convenient. First and most obvious,
the camera can run as a normal application. But if we do we need to run
the camera quickly when time especially not, when you unlock
, you can hold down your finger on the icon Camera in the lower right
corner, but it can be even easier – simply brush away the finger
from right to left and the camera also starts. These two ways, by the way,
are duplicated in the curtain for notifications. Also, you can turn
the camera from the control room, if you add it here through the
setup. Personally, I run the camera
when you unlock swipe from right to left, as if the phone is
already unlocked, through blind notifications, especially
useful when the icon is just below the thumb. However, there is also a fifth
way, but it paid – if you buy a Smart Battery Case for
iPhone 11 or 11 Pro, there will additional button
for calling chamber probably It should be comfortable. In principle, I am satisfied with
the launch of swipe camera from the lock screen or
with curtains, but also like to call it by double-
tapu on the lock button, such as it is implemented
in the Pixel and some other smartphones – it would be even
faster. And also it is comfortable when
on the hands or gloves you yet only dostaosh phone
from his pocket, and the camera has launched. But now, according to this scenario
on the iPhone is only called Apple Pay, reconfigure, to
Unfortunately, nelzya.Popadaem in the camera app itself. There really is fundamentally
nothing has changed with iOS 7 times. Although the iPhone 11 Apple has prepared
an “exclusive” version the camera application, which
differs from the previous updated a font
and interface elements. Total iPhone has six modes:
taymlaps, slow motion video, ordinary video, photo mode,
portrait mode, as well as panorama. For the regime taymlaps do
not have any options, Is that can shoot both the
primary and in the super-wide-angle module. Empirically one can find out
that it takes to resolve FullHD, and acceleration occurs
15 times, that is, for the moment shooting you will get 4 seconds
taymlaps. Also, adjust the focus
and exposure you need to start shooting, because in the process of
personal change is not out. Next there is a slow-motion
video, there’s a little more interesting. Firstly, it is possible to shoot
in mode 120 or 240 frames in the second, and change the resolution
is now possible in the application itself, rather than go to the settings. Yes, they have never been,
but it is now an exclusive Only for iPhone 11 and 11 Pro. You can also try the flash
when lighting is not enough. And, of course, you can record
both the main and in the super-wide module. A very it cool – you can
do slow motion video with front camera, it is
the collapse of Slowfies. Recording is carried out everywhere in
FullHD, in any format. The results show further,
today we look at the interface. Next comes the usual video. Everything here is very similar
to the slow, except that shooting options are much
greater: from HD to 4K 60 FPS, but change the resolution and frequency of
the frame in the application itself can only FullHD and 4K,
and if you, for whatever reason, need a HD 30 FPS, then you need to go
to settings. And also unlike the delayed
video, where you can change Only modules individually:
in the normal video can be seamlessly switch from a wide
angle to the super-wide angle directly during the recording time – it is
very convenient and works without any glitches. Turning to the main mode
the photo. You can also switch
between the modules and to adjust zoom. Top located switch
on and off the flash and Live Photo, and depending
on the light conditions there icon appears in the night
mode when it is active or may be active. But in general, the additional
tools you can call according to swipe up or
pressing the corresponding button. In contrast to the top icons,
the same flash and Live Photo here configured more deeply. And here there is
already above the night mode where you can adjust
the duration when it is active. The most stupid, that when he
is on, turn it off only by dragging
the slider to zero. Accordingly, when it
is automatically turned on, and he does not need you now
– you need to go into it Setup and drag
the slider. And yet there is a changeover
to different aspect ratios frame, timer switch
and various filters. If you ever wanted to
quickly make small video clip, then pressing
the shutter button to begin recorded video and when
to hold your finger to the right and release, the video will continue to
be recorded. And if you do just swipe
to the left of the shutter button, is committed to begin
continuous shooting. Cool function for
shooting something on top – if make the iPhone parallel to
the ground, you will see a plus sign to obtain the correct
photo at 90 ‘, as well as If you hold your finger on the focus,
it will be the same, This works not only
in photo but also in video. Another of the distinctive features
of this regime, how can note – it is like an expanded
view of the super-wide-angle module, when we do not
use: the top and bottom. It seems that it’s fun,
but in reality it is very annoying, because you often do not know
where the frame ends around the edges, you need to strain your
eyes to make the necessary composition – in general it
delivers a solid hemorrhagic: and most importantly, it
can not be shut down, it will be gone itself only when the frame
is sufficiently Dark. Transition to the portrait. On the iPhone 11 Portrait done
exclusively by means of software, and 11 Pro, you can also
switch to portrait via tele-lens. From here it is interesting
that it is possible in the real Time change like the diaphragm,
that is, the effect of blurring, as well as to try different
effects to the portrait: their effect as can be seen even before the final
result. I can not say that they
carry some value, I occasionally apply a second
effect, which is called studio lighting, he does
object brighter along the contour, it is also possible to apply the third
effect contour light, which is contrary obscures the
object, and everything else so-so. In any case, in the post processing of
all this can be applied, if needed. And the last mode – a panorama. Here in general the most
simple: you can only switch module with wide on the super-wide-angle,
and change direction panorama from right to left
or left to right – everything. Panorama with horizontal
Don’ts position for whatever reason – I do not
understand. Go to setting
the application, who do not know – they can be found in the general
settings. What you can adjust:
settings are saved, and namely the camera mode, creation
and Live Photo. Briefly speaking, this setting
allows you to save the last settings when you close
the camera. If you turn on the camera mode,
then if you were shooting a video and closed the application, and
then open the camera back, it will return to the movie mode,
rather than a photo. Creativity – the same thing,
only to filter and Live Photo Save the settings
of this function, but does not reset their default. You can turn on the grid as
you have seen, it will be present in all modes. Scan QR codes allows
it to scan, if open the camera and just
bring it. Personally, I have it disabled, so
as there is a separate utility for scanning them. Next is the video recording,
where you can select recording format – before
it can be selected Only here, in the application
it was not. Avtochastota allows
understate frames at weak lighting to video
look brighter. As well as fixing mode
the camera – this setting disables seamless switching
between modules during video recording. In slow motion video is
simple – you can only select the desired number of frames
per second. Recording stereo obviously
when disconnecting allows record audio to mono. Setting formats allows
to choose between the most sovestimym JPEG and highly
HEIF, by the way he stands and как High Efficiency Image File. A highly efficient format
allows you to save an enormous amount of memory at
this photo quality or video generally does not suffer,
I compared almost to the pixels. HEIF economical JPEG photo somewhere
in 1,5-2 times, depending the number of colors in
the frame, and 4K video HEVC economical H.264 is also somewhere in the 2 times
– it’s very cool. Moreover, it allows you to
do more photo and video a limited amount of
memory, but you can also quickly send photos to the same
social. networks, allowing to save time. The penultimate setting,
which appeared due new super-wide-angle
module – composition. The meaning of this setting is difficult
to understand without the examples I have them show, when we move on
to the super-wide-angle a photo. Briefly – iPhone can be
removed at the same time two modules, both when shooting
stills and video. In the future, through the editor
, we can expand photo or video, if needed. And if you turn on Auto adjust,
some photos may apply this effect automatically. Sounds really cool, but work
is not always the case. More about that in the examples. And the last setting
– is off Smart HDR. Perhaps if you are a professional
mobile photographer, the This setting is useful to you. But for the majority
it does not make sense, so how dramatically increases the
quality of the photo in the different conditions. With the application and the settings
we finished. I hope this has helped you
to understand the capabilities of the camera iPhone, especially if you are at all
were not familiar with them. And now we move on to the specific
results of the photo and video in different modes, and compare
them with one of the best smartphones in this regard: Google Pixel 2 XL. For those who are in the subject: I used
Google Camera custom mod that adds Super Res Zoom and improves
some of the camera algorithms, so at least Pixel and older
iPhone 11 gland – is now on photo quality dramatically
affects only soft and as for me, he is a worthy
opponent for the iPhone. I tried to make examples of
the photos in all kinds of sizes and conditions – if
you are interested in some specific format, the full
list can see now on the screen, and timecode to
each of them will be in the first fixed comments. And, of course, all the source
photo and video, which will be in this video, and even more
can be found on Yandex.Disk the link in the description – I was
there for the beauty of all smashed for Daddy, go
and see it all for you. Let’s get started! Let’s start with the photos daily. Battling it is worth noting
from the fact that the iPhone is almost always goes to a warmer
white balance. In this photo it is perfectly
visible on the brick building and asphalt – different color
straight considerably. Pixel color to be closer to reality,
the house looks like in life as well as in the photo. But as for the detail
– there iPhone shows itself much better, although
I otsmatrivat photos with phones, I have not thought
that much right on the iPhone ahead on the details – here
I was surprised. Also, the iPhone is not spoiled by the
shadows – if there was a dark, it leaves these
areas dark. And if for example we want to
take pictures of the scene with contrast lighting
and make to the source focus light – the Pixel is very
much changes the exposure and you want to force her
to raise, or obscured generally all around and it seems
that it was evening already as an example, although the sun
shone more brightly. the iPhone this disease does not suffer
and work with the exposition adequately. And if we want to achieve
the same effect as Pixel – would have to exhibit
a downgrade. But five, in most
cases, need just normal picture with proper exposure,
the most similar to something that was in my life. In general, the iPhone is trying
to do the daily photo bright, but it makes the picture
quite flat around the world and shadows. Pixel with Google Camera does more
contrasting images – Black color is deeper. I prefer contrasting
images. Although experiments have shown
that most of the big like light photo,
such as make iPhone. Therefore, when trying to post
something in Instagram, add more light, and get
2-3 husky more than usual – such a life hacking. But as the dynamic
range – then iPhone a bit surprising. Look at the sky: Straight
bright blue on the iPhone and more muffled to Pixel. It seems that there seemed to
specifically increased saturation. The same applies for similar
picture when the sun is still low before lunch or vice versa
comes to a close in the evening – then, of course, it affects even
the fact that the iPhone is a bit yellow, but sometimes it comes in handy
under such circumstances. Accordingly, the sun
yellow, rather than white, and in principle, the picture looks
more colorful. What is better is difficult to say,
to each his own – but clean psychologically iPhone is probably
more enjoyable, at least Revised pictures
and think how nice it was, bright and colorful. We proceed to a technical
scenes. For example, the iPhone cope
with scenes against the source Sveta? If you take pictures on
the street, we see that the algorithms iPhone cope better with
such scenes, and dynamic high range again. And if go into a room
where there are dark and bright objects, and take a photo
in front of the light source, the iPhone again tries to
make the picture brighter and more smooth in all its
areas: how to form out of the window, and in – and in this
example, all the less OK. But if you put a person
on which in theory should be all the attention, the iPhone
do not care – he tries to make even a picture of
the exposure and colors absolutely everywhere, so it does not get
anything at all. Pixel nevertheless emphasized
the processing of pictures on the person and even though the background is nothing
to be seen, but the main object It looks fine. And what kind of artifact in the
place turned out – I do I do not understand. We did this photo of several
times and each time it has turned the same thing, so that’s garbage. Navigate to the photo
with the movement. The first thing you will notice
is the fact that the pictures on iPhone obtained much
wider. I this way, realized only
in these examples before as something not particularly noticed,
and then direct the difference is obvious: the main module in the iPhone is very
wide. Also note
the position of the machine – all photos at the same time I did,
but the results can be seen that the iPhone captures the moment
a little earlier. This is the most surprising,
because in real life he makes the photo with a small
delay, and it seems that captures the moment in the
end, but it turns out that on the contrary. And of course the iPhone again
yellow – why the balance white on the iPhone works
in a similar way, I do not understand. But let themselves objects
in motion – iPhone, unlike Pixel by less messy and in
most cases, shows better or sometimes
worse. Which again was for me a
surprise: Pixel makes photo instantly, and the iPhone at the gate
there is a delay and it seems he has yet to grease,
but it turns out well. As for artificial
lighting, when such an environment where good
lighting is not very much, the effect is triggered so
-called Deep Fusion, special algorithm for creating photo
paired with machine learning, which completes pixels
– which gives a very high detail. And I met the view that
not everybody likes it because excessive effect – in
general will not please everyone. And again there are problems
with the white balance on this This example clearly shows. And here again, the picture turned
brighter than Pixel, in general It looks nice, but there was
some kind of bug with a sign – whence came the blue
contours and loss of detail. And now let’s look
at examples of the zoom lens. I recall that on the iPhone 11 no
television lens, so that the entire zoom turns out only
digital. And then you have to pay
attention that the pictures on the iPhone approaching somehow
obtained a lot worse, than Pixel. The thing is that Google has come up with
such a function as a Super Res Zoom and its funny that
she glues many frames before and after the shutter,
takes the best part from each frame and draws a clear
picture, thus virtually eliminating the effect of shaky
hands. iPhone such a boast can not, and so such
a photo to zoom it nothing more than do not differ from those which
can bring the most hands frame without zoom. Let us turn to the zoom in macro
photography. Here in the iPhone 11 I liked
what he Rasfokus effect softer than on the
same Pixel. This is particularly well illustrated
in the examples with garland – blur stronger,
which creates the effect of a large proximity to the object of focus. As for daily macro-photo,
here as well as with conventional – they are more vivid. And by the way, pay attention
to the HDR effect when macro shots – as if he were not working
and algorithms only work with the object of focus, and
the background clog. This is particularly evident
here in this example. And now at last move on
to the evening and night photography, perhaps, is the most important
innovation in the new iPhone. And in fact, Apple received
a very ugly when Night mode is only given
to new models and for older It is clamped. For example, the same as the Google, when
presented gave Night Sight it immediately to all its models,
up to the first Google Pixel. But Apple knows that the iPhone 11
of XR in fact not much different, at least visually,
and to motivate people buy the iPhone is 11 – not
give last year’s new features phone. I hope that the old iPhone
still get these innovations sooner or later, because of their
capacity to be more than this is enough. What about ordinary evening
photo on the iPhone without the nocturnal mode: here, in principle,
all good – they are quite detailed, but very
dark – and this is very strange, because the iPhone the day trying to
make the most vivid picture. And of course all the same balance
Belov with the departure in yellowness. And if the day is not
very evident, here’s yellow evening sky
spoil everything. Correct Apple their wacky
white balance – leave most problems with the color, especially
in the evening such a photo. And if you have to go to
night mode – there is Apple, of course, well done. They are among the last
submitted night mode among all the major manufacturers,
but it immediately became almost not the best – at
least in most cases. He often has more
detail, I like the way iPhone works with a small
light source types lanterns or headlamps machines – they
do not affect the final result and not stand too,
such as for Pixel. And most importantly – iPhone
makes the picture in night mode virtually the same as
you see in the real scene life is not too bright, or
vice versa dull – just Now the golden mean. But as I already said in the
UI review – Implementation night mode in Annex
I do not like. First he turns on
automatically, but you do not always need a night
mode – it is what you need something quick to take a picture
and move on, and he begins making a frame for 2-3 seconds
, and if you do not fiksiruesh phone, stupid because
you do not notice it in the frame result is blurred. The only thing that’s cool
– the iPhone’s night mode can be adjust the time, but the
variation again selects the application itself:
sometimes more, sometimes less, depending on the amount
of light in the scene. In short night mode in the iPhone
crediting, but need sympathetic revise its interface
and will do well. So quick show
evening pictures of objects in move. Here, all the same, plus or minus
– iPhone somewhere better, somewhere Pixel. In general, to capture an object
in motion, so that you can There was something to see
, you can, but there is as lucky in fact. And now let’s move on
to a video in various formats and under the conditions: day,
night, wide and ultra-wide unit, slow motion video
on the main unit and frontalku, the sound of a concert, audio zoom,
as well as show you why Phones lower frame rate
in low light conditions. Now look at the pictures
with the front camera. The iPhone 11 this module notably
pumped if the XR iPhone XS or standing unit 7 megapixels,
the iPhone on 11 and 11 Pro has 12 megapixels, but the aperture ratio remains the same. However, the module itself has become
wider and you can click through increase the angle, if we
take pictures now, eg. About the quality – not
to say that there iPhone something may stand out
among competitors. Pixel 2 Y old man frontalka
8 megapixels and at aperture and the photographs
better. In addition, as regards selfie
pictures in low lighting, the iPhone here on
all fronts loses Besides Pixel with Google Camera. For example, we want to include
flash – if pre-Pixel makes the screen a little brighter,
to prepare your eyes, the iPhone immediately figachit
to complete and you just slepnesh, respectively zazhmurivaesh
eyes and is not very. And as night
mode for the front Camera – for some reason it
did not deliver, and super-wide coal, too, by the way – and it
sucks, I do not understand, what the problem is
realized. We are waiting for the next iPhone this
feature as an innovation. In general, the front camera,
as opposed to basic, then Not really. For fans selfie need to
look for something else. Finally reached the super-wide angle
of the module: it was enough big hopes. We’ve learned that if Apple
does something, either do it is at the level of the strongest
competitors or better all. Accordingly, all expected
that the ultra-wide angle will at least on the level of Huawei,
but something went wrong. By itself, the super-wide-angle
unit cool – he lets look at
some of the scenes in a different way, capture more objects,
especially if space closed or too large. Day of super-wide-angle
unit 11 photographs the iPhone relatively well, but
it is provided that the coverage It would be ideal, if
you can get a good frames. But it is necessary to weaken a little
light, the picture just turns in soap. I have a feeling that
if photographed super-Shirikov you seem to
put on a very stained glasses, because the details
are lost colossal amount and smeared all very
much. Or it can be compared with those
like you eyesight not a unit, and in some cases zero
or minus one – just like fotkaet super-wide-angle
unit at the slightest lack of Sveta. On examples with Pixel me if
that apply specifically the effect of gluing nine frames
– these pictures are made for a long time, I am making them purely
for comparison. But if you compare the iPhone
11 direct competitors in the name of Samsung Galaxy Note 10, and Huawei’s
P30 Pro, where there is a super-wide angle Module – notably the iPhone
loses them not only of detail, but also
the colors, and the ability to do focus – at
least it can be accurately Huawei I do not remember to Samsung,
on the iPhone, you can only adjust exposure, a constant focus. In general, it is the weakest
over-Shirikov among all flagships, I would put
it in series with a conventional Xiaomi Mi A3 – where the results of the super-wide-angle
photo similar to the iPhone. However, with the help of the super-wide
module can improve the picture, made with the basic module. As I showed in the beginning
– has such a function as a capture a photo is shot. If you turn it on, the power of
iPhone allow him to do just two photos at the same time
– but the catch is that it realized so crooked,
it’s hard to figure out how to It could do
worse. Firstly, there is no such that
this function works right all the photographs – the phone
he understands when he wants make two pictures, and when
do not want – and what criteria it selects them, FIG understand. Secondly, there are two
formats of this function: automatic and manual. When he automatically
clear all: Press button and use
the effect of widening photo – expanded and quality
zones good enough and practically does not differ
from the basic module – algorithms dorisovyvayut these zones. But here’s the automatic
on my statistics mode works so
rare, that in order to I had to catch him
to make hundreds of photos, I do not know how they are selected
– so this here is an example. And the possibility of manual application
is displayed in a similar icon and to apply the
extension to do four clicks – agree,
very convenient to just see the results – it
also can you not like it. Why this is not stuff
it with swipe photos bottom-up and display
such as one frame option – I made it up
for 2 seconds. Briefly simply disgusting
realization – Figure understand how it works, and to
apply you need to get into the Most jungle – it’s not like
on the Apple Way. And there, by the way, a variant of
how to make a super-wide-angle photo, even if
you do not have the module – just doing small pan
and get enough a good result. This life hacking for all owners of
iPhone to 11 version. We turn to a portrait
mode: on the one hand I would like to praise Apple
for what they have taught their algorithms well enough
to cut people, animals and objects without tele-lens
– results and true enough often it is not bad,
but on the other hand wants to strongly criticize for
the process of portraiture photos, here is perhaps
even worse night mode. Firstly, it is the capture of an object
– I understand that everything is done through software and above the head
can not jump, but for some reason the Pixel with the Google Camera can do
portrait photos even in 10 inches from the object,
at least 4 meters – but there been as lucky, more and
more complex. For the iPhone you want to create
the ideal conditions – to move at least 1.5 meters and the object
you need, it is desirable not to move, otherwise the camera it may
simply lost. With that, you can select
an object to focus on He added a little
fit and blur effect disappears! But why? And here we come to the second
problem – in portrait mode on the iPhone can not do
zoom – then just complete misunderstanding. The object is cut with
the help of algorithms, without iron – so why not
do the zoom? In order to make the
portrait mode is more or less close, you almost
comes close to man, but then you get a message
that the Depart-ka you away and generally do not get nifiga. And the third problem – that
pancake with colors. Here, of course, once
again meets yellowness, but apart from her iPhone in portrait
mode like losing full potential of
the dynamic range Photo and obtained
fresh. And yes, even the distortion on
the edges present. The only thing that pleases
– so it’s really good animal portraits – for
me personally it was very it is important, because I love
them and chose to photograph iPhone is 11, rather than the XR, because
there such functionality not. And I thought that was a lie
about the fact that the super-wide-angle module helps in the portrait
animals – to otmazatsya to the owners last year’s
version – but it turns out it really works well. Although the same Pixel nothing
is not for this, all It can be done with a single module. Briefly about the panoramas
– this is where almost all nothing to present iPhone,
especially for the quality. Panoramas made easy,
parts are many, it can be like a wide, and for over-wide
module. The only thing I
do not have enough – because it is a panorama in landscape mode
– then I do not understand the reason for her absence,
but it is this kind of Panorama I think the most fun,
but iPhone owners this I do not even know. The final episode in this
great camera review I would point out
– is Live Photo. Firstly, Live Photo from iPhone, in
contrast to all that I seen – a real mini
video that is recorded for each photo – quality
picture and sound very good ones. But what I like most
of all – so it’s three effects, which uses the format
Live Photo. If the first two and continuously
repeating unit and the pendulum quite
simple and very few people can impress, here’s the latest
with the effect of long exposure – this is really
cool! With this mode, you can do
quite steep photos with a man in the crowd, water
or fire, or if the you are photographing the road
and accidentally drove the car, the long exposure it
will clear as the extra object. In general, about Live Photo
can only praise Apple, in this respect, they are great. Well, I think it
was one of the most detailed Video Reviews iPhone camera
11. And now, I would highlight the following
things over which I would I worked on the site of Apple,
namely: – Modernize navigation
by mode – here you can borrow gear
from Google Camera; – Make faster
fixation focus and exposure; – Select the night mode
as a separate item a chamber;
– Add settings this stupid extended
type, so you can him disable;
– Recycle mechanism capture photo frame is,
and the result for speed It can be added as a separate
point where now there are effects Photo Live
– Improve portrait mode: make it less crucial
to the distance to at least close and add the ability to
zoom; – Add mode horizontal
panorama; – Try to reduce the
shutter speed; – Copy if you can
effect Super Res Zoom like Google Camera;
– Add Night Mode for ultra-wide-angle
module, as well as to the front camera;
– Over by the need selfie also work, even
Pixel 2 with the worst module removes it’s better;
– And of course work with white balance and overcome the
yellowness in the photo; As you can see, most of
my comments relate to interface and the convenience of the camera. Maybe something from this
once will correct or add, it would be very cool. Thank you inspected
the video to the end, all cool photo. Good luck to everyone, all the while!
