iPhone, iPhoto

Friday, 10 August, 2018

With thousands of entrants from more than 140 countries, the 2018 iPhone Photography Awards didn’t lack for choice. Interestingly, many of the winning images were shot with iPhone 7s and 6s and even 5s.

The advances in image quality from the first contest in 2008, a year after the iPhone was launched, are remarkable. That first iPhone came with a 2 megapixel camera and an average lens, while the iPhone X now offers 12 megapixel resolution and a dual-lens camera that provides both a wide-angle and a telephoto lens. The wide angle allows for an f/1.8 aperture, while the telephoto has an f/2.4 aperture.

Alexandre Weber, an anthropologist from Switzerland, earned 1st Place with a photo taken using an iPhone 6s. “The picture was taken in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil, spontaneously, after a truck drove by. The woman with traditional clothes of a ‘baiana’, was looking after the truck, during her work break.”
