The iPhone 11 Pro offers a lot of improvements over the outgoing iPhone XS, but none are as big as the camera. Apple has spent a lot of time and resources highlighting this, it even gave one to a well-renowned Hollywood director to use and he came away impressed by the camera capabilities of Apple's newest smartphone.
Director Rian Johnson, best known for directing and writing Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Looper, got his hands on an iPhone 11 Pro and took it along for his trip to Paris. He created a short near two-minute video that shows off the amazing video it can take.
Title "Paris 9/19," Johnson released the video on Vimeo. He posted the link Twitter and mentioned how impressed he was by the camera. He notes that normal camera smartphone camera upgrades are "baby-steps," but the new ultra wide angle lens on the iPhone 11 Pro is "a real game changer." George Nolfi, (The Adjustment Bureau, Ocean's 12, The Bourne Ultimatum) also got involved, shooting a film about a child doing soccer ball tricks to impress a crowd. When asked about his experience he said:
"It was a lot of fun shooting a project on a phone knowing I had three lenses to choose from...It felt like a hybrid production, possessing the advantages of a phone yet with some of the key creative tools of traditional studio filmmaking."
The footage Johnson shot looks quite impressive. The ultra wide-angle lens takes an amazing degree of footage and the new digital stabilizer is utterly remarkable. It makes the panning shots look as if the iPhone was on a gimble.
