The iPhone Photography Awards winners show that you don’t always need the most up-to-date model.
THE RESULTS OF THE LATEST APPLE PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS HAVE BEEN RELEASED, AND THERE ARE SOME STUNNING IMAGES – TAKEN ON SOME SURPRISINGLY OLD EQUIPMENT.
The iPhone Photography Awards 2021 winners have been announced. Surprisingly, none of the top three medalists used Apple’s most up-to-date equipment to gain their victories. Last autumn, Apple released the iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro series, which offered a lot of camera improvements. On the 12 Pro, Apple included a LiDAR scanner, a smart depth-sensing technology created by NASA, to improve the Portrait Mode look, especially in low-light situations.
However, none of the winners at the iPhone Photography Awards 2021 used this cutting-edge technology. Istvan Kerekes of Hungary, the Grand Prize winner, used an iPhone 7 to photograph “Transylvanian Shepherds” in Romania. The iPhone 7 was first released in 2016 and was eventually phased out of the Apple Store in 2019. It has a 12-megapixel camera with an f/1.8 aperture. It
Meanwhile, Sharan Shetty received the First Place Photographer of the Year Award for her black-and-white “Bonding” image. The photo was captured with the iPhone X, which was released in 2017. Unlike the iPhone 12 Pro, which features three camera lenses as well as a LiDAR depth sensor, the iPhone X only has two camera lenses.
The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, of course, continue to have superior cameras than the iPhone 7 and iPhone X. It does, however, demonstrate that experienced photographers can still create stunning shots with obsolete systems.
The winning photos from the iPhone Photography Awards 2021 demonstrate how good the iPhone camera has been for years. The amount of detail picked out by this five-year-old lens hardware is still jaw-dropping in Istvan Kerekes’ shot, which features a factory on the horizon, swimming in fog. Given that image was photographed in poor light, it’s even more stunning. With successive iPhone models, Apple has worked hard to improve low-light photography, so we expect to see iPhone 12 photos in the iPhone Photography Awards for years to come.
