iPhone 13 Pro Max Camera for Concerts

Over the past year I have been going to concerts and during those times up until now, I never had to worry about my camera quality. Right before I was even planning on going to concerts, I bought a new iPhone and its camera features were pretty impressive. Luckily I got the phone right on time for concert videos and pictures. Now, I’ll go in depth of my experience with the iPhone 13 Pro Max’s camera.

The iPhone 13 Pro Max has 3 back camera lenses. In the photos above, I am using the Ultra Wide Camera (left) and the Wide Camera (right) in section 511 of SoFi Stadium. The Ultra Wide lens is perfect for “zooming out” or trying to show more of what’s in front of you and the Wide lens is the usual lens to get a regular photo/video. Both lenses produce good quality photos no matter how near or far you are.

The third lens, Telephoto, is kind of tricky to work with. In the first three photos, I took those photos while recording with the Telephoto Camera in 1080p HD at 60 fps. I was in section C243 of SoFi Stadium and with the Telephoto Camera, it all depends on how much you zoom in. If you don’t zoom in enough, it will not smooth the quality of what you’re recording and instead you will get a more pixelated result. In photos 4 and 5, I was recording in 1080p HD at 30 fps. The quality is around the same as 60 fps but of course not as good. Lastly for photos 6 and 7, I was recording in 4K at 30 fps. When you’re closer to an object or person, you will get stunning results when using 4K. I was at the Honda Center in section 208 and that is the main reason why I used 4K instead of 1080p HD.

After going to these concerts, I learned that recording in 4K isn’t the best option to use if you aren’t that close. There’s no need to take up more storage when you can use 1080p HD and still get great results. I also learned that no matter what video quality you use while recording with Telephoto, you will always have to adjust the zoom and brightness to get the best result you want. Aside from recording with the Wide and Telephoto lens, I personally don’t use the Ultra Wide lens only because it doesn’t produce the best quality. If you’re looking for a phone with great camera quality, I strongly recommend getting the iPhone 13 Pro/Pro Max and get enough storage for yourself while you’re at it haha.
