Gone are the days when being a successful travel photographer meant owning and lugging around a heavy equipment on trips. In the age of smartphones, anyone with a high-quality in-built camera and aesthetic sense can make a mark in the industry. Which is why, we are particularly happy with the launch of Apple’s new iPhone 12, and believe that its every travel photographer’s dream come true. By Amitha Ameen

Whether you are a professional photographer or not, we can all agree that the iPhone has blurred the line between DSLR and phone photography. And, Apple’s new launch is just a step ahead in that direction. The latest iPhone 12 which has recently been introduced in the market, comes with with many eye-catching software and hardware updates, which we just can’t wait to explore.

– While the iPhone 11 Pro had introduced the telephoto zoom lens, the new iPhone 12 Pro Max has taken zoom to another level by upgrading it to 2.5x, hence allowing the photographers more options when it comes to zooming into their desired composition.

– Despite already proving its worth when it comes to picture quality, with its extraordinary image sensors and night mode option, Apple has launched iPhone 12 with an even bigger image sensor, which means brighter and more dynamic shots, with lesser noise, highlighting the finest details, especially while shooting landscape and macro images.

– Low light imagery too has gotten a big update in the iPhone 12 Pro Max and the wider f/1.6 aperture can now let in more light, better than the iPhone 11, which already has pretty amazing low-light cameras. So this means more professional photographs.

– One of the updates we are most excited about is the new RAW feature. Earlier we had to use third-party apps to shoot iPhone images in RAW but the new Apple ProRaw allows greater control when it comes to image processing.

– The new iPhone 12 is also a big win for those who are into videography or vlogging, as it offers HDR with Dolby vision at up to 60 fps — a first for any device according to Apple. The phone also has an improved optical image stabilisation to further reduce jerks and movements while shooting.
