Apple commissioned six photographers to feed its Instagram account. Objective: to take photos captured with the ultra wide-angle lens of the iPhone 13, which can also be found on the iPhone 13 Pro, on the iPhone 13 Pro Max and even on the iPhone 13 mini. The result is very successful and reminds us that the devices are indeed very good photophones, as recently confirmed by a specialized benchmark.
The first image immortalizes a couple of young men from a low angle, giving pride of place to several buildings of American architecture in the vicinity. Behind the camera, we find Zerb Mellish, an artist based in Dallas apparently specializing in portraits. The second photo, for its part, represents a man in colorful clothes standing alone in the heart of a meadow dominated in the background by a mountain range.
Black and white in the spotlight
The third shot, quite original, is monopolized by a close-up face with rounded glasses and a piercing. The game of negative is very successful there, and the idea might appeal to some for their profile photos on social networks.
The sixth shot, for its part, once again demonstrates the prowess of the ultra wide-angle since we recognize two binoculars but captured to the bust, with a forest background very present. Unfortunately, you should know that only the back lens of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro has such capabilities. At the front, it will be necessary to be satisfied with selfies of 12 MPx and without optical or digital zoom. Too bad for the clients of this ophthalmologist.
Perfect for indoor photos
The ultra wide-angle of the iPhone 13 also seems ideal when it comes to taking photos indoors while retaining all the potential of the available space around you. The fourth and fifth images thus form only one, proof that the Instagram format is still and always to be reviewed. Finally, the last two images, which we owe to Julien James (New York), seem to have been carefully taken in an abandoned warehouse. With a color scheme that is also very representative of the millions of colors readable by Apple mobiles.
