Welcome to a bundle of test shots I took with Apple's new iPhones. Here we have a photo taken on the iPhone 11 with the new ultrawide-angle camera.

The front-facing camera takes wider selfies. Use with care.

The extra distance can be helpful if used properly.

I started thinking I'd never use the second ultrawide-angle camera... but I'm starting to change my mind.

An example of the two cameras: a bridge in the distance, with the standard "wide" camera.

The iPhone 11 and 11 Pro/Max have the same cameras, but the Pro phones add 2x telephoto. And Night Mode, seen here, works on all the phones.

iPhone 11

Night Mode, like low-light modes on the Google Pixel 3, Samsung Galaxy S10, Note 10 and others, takes longer exposures and pulls shocking light and color out of really dark scenes.

Night Mode doesn't always play well with bright lights. I thought this sparkler shot would come out nicer.

Ultrawide angle doesn't have Night Mode, and photos don't turn out as bright without a flash.
