I’m mostly impressed with the 11 Pro Max camera, but highlight details are too much.
I’m very impressed with almost every aspect of the new camera system. the night mode, shooting in low light, color, sharpness etc. There is one problem, however. I’ve noticed when using the “selfie” camera, or shooting photos of something that has a glare or strong highlights, the cameras processing system seems like it dramatically tries to reduce the highlights, but it ultimately makes them look silver. Then it adds what seems to be way too much clarity (i’m imagining adjustments in lightroom). Like, the photo is pulling detail that the human eye can’t see…things that i don’t want to see. skin imperfections, dirt stains, even details in dog hair is wayyyyyyy over the top. I can’t be the only one experiencing this. I’ve tried turning off smart HDR, but there’s no difference.
In conclusion, this camera way over processes detail in highlights. Can anyone empathize? Have you found a camera client that doesn’t process like the native iOS app?
