My iPhone 12 Pro Max just came and I wanted to share some initial thoughts on it. I have spent a number of years using both my Nikon D 500 and my iPhone to take pictures. However, I have always thought of my DSLR as my “Real Camera” and my iPhone as the camera of convenience. Now, however, with the release of the iPhone 12 Pro Max, that viewpoint is starting to shift. With the quality of this camera, the statement “the best camera is the one I have with me” is changing from an excuse to a choice.
