Decide which type of Lens to use for a particular shot
As mentioned, the iPhone 11 Pro Max is equipped with triple-camera lens. Perhaps the reason why you have experiencing camera issues because of poor quality output of photos and videos is because you are not using the correct lens.
For you to know which lens to use for a particular shot, read below the discussion on the capacity and limitation of each of the lens on the iPhone 11 Pro Max:
Telephoto lens: uses a 52mm lens that is designed for images who’s subject is at moderate reach or far distances. It is usually used in portrait and macro photography. It delivers more detail and free of distortions versus using a wide-angle lens.
Wide-Angle Lens: uses a 25 mm lens used to take photos in a wide-angle range. This means that more scenes can be included in a single shot. It is mostly used for landscape and architectural subjects and scenes.
Ultra-Wide Angle Lens: uses a 3mm lens, used to capture more scenes to be included in the image. It is now more popular than a wide-angle lens for architectural, interior and landscape subjects. This is the best len to capture a scene that highlights its subject to appear larger than its background. Of course, this lens has more barrel distortion and perspective distortion as well.
