First, a comparison of wide-angle cameras. Both the Pixel 6 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max are good shots, but the iPhone 13 Pro Max has a slightly stronger contrast. SuperSaf commented that the Pixel 6 Pro had the impression of having a wider dynamic range.
Looking at the front side, which is in the shadow of a backlit plant, the Pixel 6 Pro is clearly visible, but the iPhone 13 Pro Max is so dark that you can hardly tell what is in it.
SuperSaf said the photos taken with the Pixel 6 Pro are more balanced in light and shadow.
the Pixel 6 Pro has the disadvantage that lens flare occurs fairly firmly when a strong light source is reflected, as shown below.
However, SuperSaf points out that
The iPhone 13 Pro Max has a strong contrast, so the difference between light and dark is clear. The outline of the shadow is also sharper on the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The iPhone 13 Pro Max can take up to 10 seconds of exposure, and if you do it for a long time, you can take pictures as bright as the Pixel 6 Pro. However, a tripod is indispensable for exposure photography.
For some reason, the iPhone 13 Pro Max is more beautiful and brighter when taken indoors in the dark. I don't know why this difference is made, SuperSaf said.
Next, a comparison of ultra-wide-angle cameras. The angle of view is slightly wider on the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
The basic difference in properties is the same as the wide-angle lens, and the Pixel 6 Pro looks slightly brighter and more natural.
If you look at the bushes in the background, you can see that the Pixel 6 Pro is overgrown with leaves, but the iPhone 13 Pro Max's photo is quite dark and confusing.
A major feature of the iPhone 13 Pro Max camera was macro photography. When I bring the camera close to the handle of Tesla and shoot, it looks like this. There is no big difference at this distance, but ...
The closer the camera is, the better the iPhone 13 Pro Max will be.
Shooting at night with a wide-angle camera looks like this. As with the ultra-wide-angle lens, the Pixel 6 Pro looks brighter.
However, in some photos, the Pixel 6 Pro was sometimes more noisy.
Now compare the zoom. The photo taken at the same magnification looks like this.
The optical zoom is up to 4x for the Pixel 6 Pro and up to 3x for the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Looking at the 10x digital zoom, the Pixel 6 Pro looks clearer.
The digital zoom is up to 20x for the Pixel 6 Pro and up to 15x for the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Even when shooting with the Pixel 6 Pro's 20x zoom, the outlines of characters and objects are clearly visible without blurring. However, SuperSaf said, 'While the Pixel 6 Pro can zoom in better in bright places, I prefer the iPhone 13 Pro Max in dark places.'
Next, about portrait mode. Compared to the Pixel 6 Pro, the iPhone 13 Pro Max seems to be treated with a slightly warmer color.
Speaking of portraits, the background is out of focus, but here the performance of the LiDAR scanner of the iPhone 13 Pro Max is fully demonstrated.
Looking at the photos actually taken, the background is more beautifully blurred in the photos taken with the iPhone 13 Pro Max. The background of the Pixel 6 Pro's photo is not well recognized, and the space between the arm and body is not blurred.
If you crop the face and compare it, you can see the difference between the hue and the background blur more clearly.
In the photo taken outdoors, with the Pixel 6 Pro, there was a part of the background that was not half-blurred, so it was a slightly unnatural portrait photo.
And, in order to compare the selfies, the selfies actually taken by Mr. SuperSaf look like this. Again, the iPhone 13 Pro Max has an orange-tinted finish, while the Pixel 6 Pro has a more natural look, and Supar Saf said, 'Google is meeting people of color like me. I think he did the job. ' SuperSaf evaluates that the Pixel 6 Pro has a more natural beard color, but the treatment of the surface of the skin and objects is too artificial and there are some unnatural parts, especially the wrinkles on the face are emphasized on the contrary. Commented that some people would dislike it. On the other hand, the iPhone 13 Pro Max does a fairly smooth and natural process, so it may be the iPhone 13 Pro Max that can capture a person's face beautifully overall.
It's a selfie in a dark place, and without a flash, it looks like this, and the iPhone 13 Pro Max looks brighter.
When I cook the flash, the Pixel 6 Pro shoots brighter, but the iPhone 13 Pro Max gives the impression that the light is scattered moderately and the shot is natural.
When shooting movies, the iPhone 13 Pro, which has both optical image stabilization and sensor shift optical image stabilization, can shoot stable movies with less camera shake.
The Pixel 6 Pro also has built-in digital image stabilization, and you can choose from four levels.
Digital image stabilization crops the screen and makes it a little narrower, but you can still shoot stable movies on the Pixel 6 Pro.
The focus speed was slightly faster on the iPhone 13 Pro Max.
Slow motion shooting is almost the same. Both the Pixel 6 Pro and the iPhone 13 Pro Max can shoot fairly high quality slow motion cameras, but when changing the lens between wide-angle, ultra-wide-angle and telephoto, the iPhone 13 Pro Max said that the images shot were consistent. Supar Saf.
Both movie sounds can be recorded without any problem. SuparSaf said he might be on the iPhone 13 Pro Max by a small margin, saying he was really on par with the movie shoot.
