Here Is How The iPhone 11 Compares To The $13k Fujifilm GFX 100 Medium Format Camera

Iphone 11

Let’s go for another compare-apples-to-pears post.

It seems the iPhone 11 inspires people to compare it to professional and much more expensive photographic gear. After a comparison with the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, here is another user, Josh Rossi, better known as Photoshop Dad, who compares his medium format Fujifilm GFX 100 to the iPhone 11.

He writes:

In this video, I’ll be comparing the iPhone 11 Pro with the Fujifilm GFX 100. The Fuji medium format camera costs right around $13,000 with the body and lens and is one of the best cameras out there today. The sensor size alone is 1/3 the size of the entire iPhone 11 just for comparison.

Initially, I didn’t want to even compare the two because I thought that the GFX was going to win by a long shot. I was totally surprised when I did the comparison and saw the results on the computer. Even though the more expensive camera obviously wins this battle, the iPhone 11 Pro gave surprising results especially if the viewer isn’t zooming in super close to the image.

I got really excited about it and decided to try and recreate a movie poster. I’ve wanted to do this test for years but Apple’s technology wasn’t up to par yet. Once again I was surprised at the results that were created. I think that the image quality of the iPhone is good enough to print on a billboard, post on social media and even use on big campaigns.

Once more, you have to guess the camera that shot the picture. Enjoy.

Apple Used An Unreleased Canon 8K Cinema Camera During WWDC 2019

Canon 8k Cinema Camera

Something Canon related happened yesterday at Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2019, and it appears to be a Canon 8K Cinema camera.

YouTuber Jonathan Morrison live streamed from WWDC 2019 and at a certain point (around min 10:55 in the video below) he talks to an Apple rep who says “there is an unreleased 8K Canon camera over there”.

The unreleased 8K Canon camera was used to capture 8K resolution footage to showcase the performance of the new Pro Display XDR. In the video you can see the Canon 8K mounted on a robotic arm while sending 4:4:4 ProRes 8K raw video via an Atoms Shogun to the Apple display.

The Canon 8K camera in the video is most likely the upcoming Canon EOS C300 Mark III, expected to be announced in 2019.
