What Apple seems to be aiming for is not to make photos that look like they were made with a "real" camera, but to make photos that look perceptively right. In the latest panos I've taken, it's striking how much they look like what you'd expect to see if you turned your head. Older panos look like super-ultra-wide photos. Same for the incredible light and color balancing from iPhone 11 Pro photos, including the ultra-wide, Night Mode, and, we assume Deep Fusion. Of course pro-level cameras have hugely bigger (in megapixels) sensors. And pro lenses are sharper. But with my Panasonic Lumix FZ2500, I often shoot in extended zoom, which results in "only" 10 MP. And not only do the shots look really good, but they're often very difficult or even impossible to obtain with any other lens (except a dedicated tele macro lens costing more than my whole camera outfit, even if one exists). What's a RED + Leica Noctilux .95 cost?
