Would anyone be willing to post some pics of their reef taken from an iPhone 12 pro please? I’m upgrading from my 10 but can’t decide if the 12 is much of an upgrade from the 11. Please specify if the picture was from a 12 or an 11 please. Thanks!!!!

I have the iPhone 12 Pro Max and I took these today actually. (First three are from today) some have a coral lense on there and some don’t. Noticeably different. But with the coral lense, the iPhone 12 Pro Max camera, they come out better than 95% of the photos I see online anywhere. The quality of the shots has allowed me to even sell some of these at lightning speed.

I think I sent them twice sorry, also you can zoom in and that obviously affects the quality of the photos but you could probably bring them closer to the surface, cut the flow, black background and get absolutely stunning photographs. Better than most cameras too

You are on it! There is definitely a difference from my 10. What kind of filter are you using for the phone? Are any of the non-blue pics filterless?

I’ll get my filter set out tomorrow and get the brand and everything. I love it and it actually shows the colors nearly to the eye. I’ll get back to you tomorrow!!

Following. Your photos look great. I’m curious what setting(s) you use to take it photos.

I have an iPhone 12 Pro and my phone seems to keep auto adjusting the color. When I use a filter lense I had for my last phone (which doesn’t properly fit over all 3 lenses), the colors difference seems negligible and appears my phone is adjusting to “correct” color filtering effect of the lenses.

Alright got my filter set so here I have the orphek coral lense thing. See for yourself. It comes with a magnifying, green, blue, and red.

filters go as follows~
No filter (iPhone 12 pro max)
+’blue’
+Green
+red
+magnifying

I love this thing and the camera quality just as much :) highly highly recvomend. I have a pair of those orange glasses but they completely over exaggerate everything. Personally I stay away from the red filter but the green+blue+magnifying is my favorite combo. It’s realistic and provides quality colors that truly get close to the actual eye. They are never as bright still in person they are even more brighter but the tones of color are best in that setting in my opinion.

Hi,

I have the 11 pro. To be honest. I know nothing about photography or how to use the phone. I have some apps that are supposed to make the pics even better. I do use the Polylap orange filter which I like.

These pics are under 6x T5 and 2x AI 52HD set on AB+

I have the 11 pro max and these photos were taken without lenses, but changed the warmth and sharpness on some of them. I’m still learning, but I think most recent phones have the capability to produce nice pictures once you know how to use them :)

Great topic. I have iPhone 11 and have been experimenting with different settings and filters. So far, not really happy with the results. Yesterday, I did watch a few videos from Tidal Gardens on taking photos of the reef tanks...going to try to see if those suggestions help.

I recently upgraded from the IPhone X to the IPhone 12. From what I was reading, if you are upgrading for the camera then the Pro Max is the choice as the hardware is quite a bit better than what is in the 12 pro. I wasn't upgrading because of the camera and there is no real difference between the 12 and 12 pro other than its camera.
 

Do you have any special reefing upgrades or projects planned coming up?
