Five days with the iPhone XS and XS Max went by quickly. I tried to take a bunch of photos as I went and here are my favorites, with more photo comparisons to come. Because the XS and XS Max have the same cameras, the photos are presented together. None of these photos used flash. (This one is 2x on a butterfly with a broken wing near Chelsea Piers.)

Night shot near Penn Station. I was curious how much light the new smart HDR allowed. Definitely more than the X.

Mark's on our NY video team. He was my test model for Portrait Mode effects. Portrait Mode with Stage Light Mono looked OK, but I still see awkward effects.

One of the little hallway exhibits at The Frying Pan bathroom. I wanted to see what the flashlight and the dark environment would do (the hallway was pretty dim).
