The Holiday Season is upon us. It's time to start thinking about (and buying) some gifts for the people in your life. Whether you are looking for a gift for a friend, family members, or yourself, we have some great ideas for you here at VJ. One such gift is the new iPhone X.
This is one of the more expensive items in our Holiday Gift Guide, but it is also one of the best.
The iPhone X is much more than a phone. Most smartphones are, but this is much different. What makes this phone so special to us is it's video capabilities. Putting aside all the other cool features like Face ID, AR, and others, it is the amazing camera system on this phone that is so exciting.
The phone as a dual camera system on the back of the phone that has a 12MP wide-angle lens and a 12MP telephoto lens. These two lenses work together to give you an amazing image whether you are shooting a wide shot of landscape or a close up on someone's hands chopping carrots. The phone has image stabilization to take some of those shakes out of your video, and fuller colors than any previous iPhone (or other smartphone for that matter). The camera also has native focus and exposure control, as well as noise-reduction for low light shooting. This phone can truly shoot it all -- no matter the shooting condition. Obviously you won't be able to have as much control as you would with a DSLR, but it is pretty close, and the images that it captures would fool a lot of people to think it was shot on a DSLR.
Additionally, the phone has an amazingly large OLED screen which gives you a clear picture of what you are shooting while you are shooting it. No longer do you have to hope that when you plug in to your computer or export to Facebook that it won't look like it did on your screen, because it will. Like with other smartphones, not only can you shoot on it, but you can edit it, add music, graphics and titles, and share your work to the web without having to ever plug in to a computer.
We love our new iPhone X, and it would make a great gift for the video obsessed person in your life -- ever if that's yourself.
