Chris Marquardt ... Not buying on the iPhone 11

Episode 1627 (58:30)

Chris Marquardt

Chris joins us and says he's not buying the iPhone 11 because he believes that the phone is in the "tock" cycle, and there's going to be a much better phone next year. So he's going to wait. Having said that, he thinks that the three lens camera on the iPhone is a two stage upgrade. The three cameras are matched, so they have the same colors and calibrated to make it a seemless shot. And the night shot mode is interesting as an answer to Google's Night Sight. It takes up to nine photos at various aperture and shutters speeds and then uses computational photography to fuse them together. As for "slofies", Chris thinks they're a bit silly, but the portrait mode is much improved. The high key mono mode in portrait mode is fantastic. It uses the same algothms to change the background to create a studio like portrait by removing the background. 

Our next photo assignment is - FOCUS. Take a photo of, about or otherwise concerning the concept of "FOCUS" and then post it to the Tech Guy Group on Flickr. Make sure to tag it with the word "TGFOCUS" as well! And if Chris likes it, it could end up on next month's photo contest review segment!
