iPhoneography Upgrade

Apple recently announced the iPhone 7 Plus, featuring two built in camera lenses. You get an upgraded 12 megapixel ƒ/1.8 wide-angle lens alongside the brand new ƒ/2.8 telephoto(ish) lens.

I didn’t plan to upgrade my phone this year, but when I saw the new and improved camera, I knew I had to have it. Thankfully, T Mobile offered a free phone with an iPhone trade-in, with other phone carriers following suit. So I found myself down at the store pre-ordering my iPhone 7 Plus. It’s still a week or two out from being delivered, so in the meantime, I’m reading all I can about the new camera.

This camera is bound to be a huge tool for iPhone scrappers. My biggest problems with scrapping on my phone are 1) the size of the screen. The Plus will hopefully help with that. and 2) the quality of the photos. Even though iPhones have improved so much over the years, the lack of a zoom lens impacted my ability to use my iPhone exclusively. But now, with the ability to have both a zoom and traditional lens in my phone, my DSLR will definitely be relegated to portrait sessions, special occasions and sporting events.

As I anticipate my package, I am soaking up all the info I can find. I thought I’d share some of it with you!

Here’s a fun comparison between the original iPhone and the new one
