    it's an iphone, and the result is very close to what a leica camera can do?? iphone for the W for sure.

    Let's get printed these photos and then compare again which "camera" is worth to buy :)

    try to print it out to a larger print .... digital display is hard to compare .. if you just use the pic for online media, iPhone will be fine .. for professional-quality prints... Leica all the way!!! you can't compare . ...IMHO if anyone believe iphone 11 pro can take as good as a photo as Leica ... you have a petty low standard ...

    None of this people is a professional photographer, I didn't miss any of the images , It was very clear because of buke , sharpness and the more realistic colors and ton of other signs.

    Anyone who shoots on a camera would be able to tell the difference. Lets wait another 10 years and see what happens.

    I noticed the hair not being clear as well. It still is amazing how far cell phone cameras have come in a relatively short amount of time. Great video, Sir!!

    Portrait mode still needs work with hair... But people who buy Leica are most likely looking for character and shooting experience than sharpness. Honestly most cameras/phones are good enough for casual shooters.

    Lol the 2 image I didn’t get it wrong I knew because on image 2 the hair was sharper and image 1 was more zoomed in, and iPhone portrait mode zooms in to take a photo

    I must admit, it's a close shot. But one thing the iPhone doesn't have is an identity, personality. I follow you in the best camera is the one you have with you, but when you want a picture with possibility to grade the colors or contrast or... or you want the softness of a Leica, hardness of a Zeiss, or... then I am very happy with my DSLR so I can choose how my picture will look like, and not have to put it into the hands of 'auto-technology' and hope for the best. But nice (and frightening) video...

    On the low light shot, I thought the iPhone would use some computational wizardry to stack multiple shots and get a clean image, but I guess that feature has not yet been perfected. Thanks for the video! I would have liked to have seen a bit about how much editing you did to the photos. Maybe see a straight out of the camera, and edited result for each.

  • The Only Fun In Town

    Dude, you’re saying you’re disappointed in the iPhones performance in a virtually dark office vs a dedicated, legendary photographic tool? It’s a telephone with a computer, a music player, and a camera with 4 lenses and tiny sensors, in a super slim lightweight package, and all for a grand. It’s just amazing really.

    the leica digital range will suffer badly in the next 3 years .Buy a 35mm leica . But investing in a £2k digital body is a bit of a joke .By 2025. the quality of the camera on iphones etc will be so good

    It’s extremely easy to spot the iPhone pictures. The skies are rendered with an unnatural blue, details are over sharpened, colors are saturated, and the fake bokeh is very noticeable. Even comparing my micro four thirds camera to my iPhone 11 there’s not much doubts about which is which.

    I think this kind of videos show how mediocre the photographers who make them actually are. There is no question as to which is which, unless you know absolutely nothing about how a lens behaves and the basic rules of physics.

    Honestly I think that guys with a 20k plus cameras are getting scared about an iPhone technology is catching up quickly... quantum dots will be in the next iPhone camera generation and lots of costly camera will be on eBay for sale and nobody will bother.

    I can tell the difference, one is synthetic, the other is real, however you must realize the smartphone cameras are vastly inferior in lens and sensor capabilities, they mostly rely on heavy software optimization to make it near a professional photo.

    Lol Leica is a joke, they're the Apple of the photography industry. Over priced featureless garbage that loses to all other manufacturers priced at 2k.

    I've dropped my Canon EOS 500D and switched to my Iphone 11 Pro Max with Moment lenses which make it even better!, especially with the macro lens I'm making really nice photo's
    I could spot the difference with the hair, Iphone can't handle that well yet, but maybe the next one could, it's a powerful thing.

    It is very simple to know which one is iphone, cause iphone portrait mode is so unnatural and the image object is flat.

    Ok the iphone is not as good as the 20,000$ dollar camera, but its really amazing to see how far these smartphones especially the iphones have improved over the years.

    • Markos

      Yeah, but you dont need to spend so much money a simple 400$ camera is able to take much better photos than any phone...

    1)If you want to see the difference then shoot film,you will have the film in your hands not digital air.2)If you want to see difference then print and you will see HUGE difference.I aggree that for social media it doesn’t really matter.Photografy for social media and for likes for me it isn’t real photografy.It is fake photography.3)I can always see fake saturation,fake bokeh,fake sharpness because I don’t like the .

    Yes most have the iPhone 11 but most don't know composition. I handed my a6500 with the sigma 30mm f1.4 to a family member. And of course I had to redo the shot with out me in it.

    The iPhone has indeed come a long way and is definitely a fantastic everyday tool. About the test. 1. Even if you had showed only the face and not showed her hair, it is still possible to tell the difference. The Leica skin is more natural while the iPhone looks a little plasticy and not like real skin with blood. Image #3 where this is most evident. Also the facial features show more depth (nose, eyes, ears). 2. Image sharpness is not the only yardstick in image quality and feel. So, a sharper image (not counting subject/camera blur) is not necessarily better. Plenty of family photos that go back a few decades for me to form my preferences. 3. "I can tell the difference and most of the world cannot." I think that's ok. Photography (any art for that matter) is usually very personal.

    Camera always produces a lighter color of images than iPhone or whatever you see shot by your phones. That's why pros need Lr to further adjust pics so that they are better modified and make you astonish.

    I’m looking at this on an iPhone 7 so these are small thumbnails. Do you have links to larger images?
    Picture 1 - look at the wall the model is standing on, on version 1 the shadows between the stones are very visible.
    Picture 3, in addition to her hair being blurred where it falls down the hair appears over sharpened and the right arm of her shirt is blurred where it meets the background.
    But in both, versions 2 the colours on the shirts are less saturated and vibrant and skin tones appear very light. Are the highlights and skin underexposed?

  • Konstantin Sukhov

    2 pic isn't hardest one. It's most obvious, because of iPhone's algorithm mistake. Other pics a better, but differences are still visible.

    At 7:30 look at the nose of the girl on the left side which is no 1 and taken from professional camera and compare it to the picture 2 which is taken from the iPhone.
    It tells that the sensor is slightly dirty of your professional camera and needs to be cleaned.
    Edit: And Yes, I can easily tell the difference in all those pictures. 👍.
    Software can't beat hardware and okay okay hardware can't beat software as well. ❤

    I believe that actually you suck..... Trying to promote something, misleading people on the internet. Because of that it seems to me that your content is made for people who have no idea what a dslr or a mirrorles is. So how did you take those picture with the leica? How can you even have the guts to actually say that the iphone is sharper? For the general public watching and believing that, I think they have never heard of raw, or held a dslr in their hands. Well I guess instagram culture really does a number on many’s brains. Too bad there are so many cheap “influencers” on every corner these days...

    Iphone makes the skin more saturated compared to Leica which tries the skintone more natural and realistic.
    Yellowish tone vs more reddish tone

    First comparison - left is leica because it better handles the gradients between shadow and highlights on her legs, and the grass looks better.

    A lot of people mistake over processed images as expensive. Over saturated colors, digital sharpening, and high contrast are the giveaways.

  • Sucay Miranda

    This ”test” is seriously ridiculous: you didn't even match the difference in aspect ratio. The Leica is 2:3 and the iPhone 3:4.

  • Mads Krabbe Fotografi
    Mads Krabbe Fotografi 2 months ago

    The gap/space between her hands and face (the hand she holds against her face) on image 2 reveals that the iPhone can't blur the background, so that one was easy. And the iPhone is way oversharpned vs leica that's more soft

    3:26 left elbow gives it away, while on the picture taken with the iphone it is in focus, on the one taken with the leica it´s not ( which shows a better management of the depth of field)

    His problem is he does not know how to shoot and process with Leica. Also, he looks at a 2"x2" image. Blow up to 54"or 72" print and we'll all see the size of your Iphone's erection!!!

    All the images were pretty obvious which one is which but I don't get how people got the last one wrong. You can clearly see the grain in the darker areas which is typical for phone cameras in low light situations while the Leica was sharp... 🤔
