Lori XS


Mrs tsuken’s new iPhone XS Max arrived yesterday. I’ve been comparing the camera to that in my iPhone X, and oh dear...

The new iPhones have cameras with a 30% larger sensor, so more light and resolution, and less noise. On top of that are utterly unfeasible increases in processing power: 600 billion operations per second.

... that's in the iPhone X.

... the XS manages a quite implausible 5 trillion operations per second.

The amount of oomph thereby applied to photography is ridiculous, with not just the GPU, but a "neural engine" which is, apparently, a Very Good Thing.

I really did not expect there would be that sort of jump between these cameras. Just bonkers.

(I’m not sure about Flickr accepting the full-size image from the iPhone app; here on Blip it’s lacking in resolution, so you’ll just have to believe me) xP
