Hav­ing be­come firmly in­vested in the Ap­ple ecosys­tem over the years, I re­cently up­graded to an iPhone Xs Max – tempted by its im­pres­sive cam­era of­fer­ing – and I cer­tainly haven’t been dis­ap­pointed. Por­trait mode with the Depth ef­fect looks fan­tas­tic on the phone’s large OLED screen, and not far be­hind it when viewed on a com­puter. After tak­ing some pic­tures of my chil­dren, they asked me if I still needed my ‘real’ cam­era. Of course, I replied. Cam­era phones just get bet­ter and bet­ter (see our Mini Test, page 142) and some of their ben­e­fits – the con­ve­nience, the con­nec­tiv­ity and the pace of tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vances – are giv­ing the cam­era in­dus­try plenty to think about right now.

But it all comes down to flex­i­bil­ity and con­trol, so for me it’s a ‘real’ cam­era sys­tem ev­ery time. On page 40, we show how to take that con­trol to the next level, by us­ing man­ual set­tings to trans­form your photography. En­joy the is­sue.
