How to do star photography with the iphone 13 pro max

iPhone 13 night mode just got better. Just how to do star photography with the iphone 13 pro max. The iPhone 13 series have wider aperture cameras, boasting a 2.2x better night mode. Let see how well the iPhone 13 Pro Max does star photography. I have been waiting for some time to see just how well the iPhone 13 Pro will do astrophotography.

  1. The pictures that you come out with are absolutely bloody fantastic! To be fair, you’ve got that lovely black clear sky, with no light pollution, but still, you definitely know what you’re doing with a mobile phone camera!😎👍🏻

  2. Great videos. I have a question about shooting at night. I have the iPhone 13 pro max and saw in another video of yours when taking the tree picture by the rocks you turned on the Raw setting but in this video you said not to use the Raw… how come?
    I’m going to try and take some cool pics tonight!👍🏽

  3. Absolutely beautiful. I am also very interested in Astrophotography. And am at the crossroads whether to buy iPhone 13 Pro or Samsung Ultra 21. Can you please guide me which is better? With my Samsung s20 plus, I am not able to take proper pictures of the Moon. Thank you so much 🙏

  4. Hi, thanks for the great video. But I wonder … in the video, you say that the light I use to help light my car doesn't have to be on all the time. Can you explain it to me in more detail? So how long should it be on and also in what period of those 30 seconds? For example, for 5 or 10 seconds from the beginning? how long? Thanks a lot.

  5. Shane! Before I jump out and buy one of these… what do you think of the astrophotography capabilities compared to a Pixel 4a? Both on a tripod, shooting in RAW, etc. Please share as much insight as you can!
