iPhone 11

Leo got the iPhone 11 Pro Max

Episode 1628

Leo bought Apple's most expensive iPhone, the iPhone 11 Pro Max. Leo says it's a work of art, and he also says it's largely future proofed for the next two years. He also says that the biggest change is the odd three camera array on the back, which looks like a missile launcher. But Leo says it takes really NICE pictures, since Apple's camera app now lets you zoom while recording video and going between each lens.

Focus

Episode 1626

Scott from Orange County, CA

Scott watched the recent Apple event and it got him thinking about multiple lenses/cameras shooting a film simultaneously during production. Leo describes the pain of shooting an interview with only one camera, where the reactions often come across as a bit fake. Scott explains how the movie Focus was screened in front of audiences using four different versions, and the final edit blended them together based on audience feedback. Leo believes more in auteur theory and artistic vision, but the possibility to combine filming styles is still there.

Apple announced the next-generation iPhone 11 this week, in 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. There's also the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, with the Max going up to 512GB. And Leo says that Apple is offering up to $400 off on a trade-in of an old iPhone X.  The iPhone 11 has two lenses, like the iPhone X, while the Pro models have three lenses. Leo says that the one thing that the iPhone can do, through FiLMiC Pro, is to record separate streams from at least two cameras at the same time. And Apple has also invented the "Slowfie!" A slow-motion selfie.

Tuesday is Apple's next event and Leo is expecting the latest iPhone 11 (or whatever it'll be named). After the announcement, users will be able to order it starting Friday, the 13th.

Other expected announcements include another update to the Apple Watch. Rumor has it that Apple will be offering ceramic versions again, along with titanium models. But Leo says that the cheapest is just as good. it's what he gets.
