Every year a new iPhone goes on sale around autumn, and in 2021 the new iPhone 13 series went on
sale on 24 September. Compared to the iPhone 12, the notch has been reduced in size by 20%. The
display area has become wider. In addition, it has a longer battery life.

The new iPhone 13 mini is available in five colours: red, starlight, midnight, blue and pink. The
camera system is a triple-camera system with telephoto, wide-angle and ultra-wide-angle cameras,
and all four iPhone 13 series models have new features such as 'Photograph Style' and 'Cinematic
Mode'. I myself replaced my iPhone 7 with an iPhone 13 and tried out the new features. In this
article, I'll explain how to use the new features and what kind of photography is best suited to this
advanced camera performance in everyday life.
＜What is Photograph Style? ＞What is Photographic Style?
Photographic Style is a feature that allows you to adjust the quality of your photos and videos to
your liking. The iPhone also has a filter function, but you can only select filters with a predetermined
colour scheme. Photographic Style, on the other hand, allows you to adjust the tones and warmth
you want, and once you've set it up, you can take photos that match your shooting style in any
Let's take a look at how to set it up and actually select a style.
Start the camera and click on '^'.
Click on the button that looks like a series of squares.
Swipe it to select a style for your camera.
"You can choose between 'Rich Contrast', 'Vivid', 'Cold' and 'Warm' styles.
"Cold is a pale blue colour that looks cold and cool.
"Warm" is a light golden colour for a warmer look.
"When I set the warmth to the maximum setting of 100, the picture has an even stronger orange
If you want to create the warmth of indirect lighting, we recommend the Warm mode.
"Vivid is brighter, clearer and more vivid. If you want to capture nature, such as a sky shot, this is
the style for you.
Once the settings have been memorised, they will be retained the next time the camera is turned
on, which is very convenient. By setting the colours to your liking before you start shooting, you can
get the perfect picture. You can also save time by not having to edit your photos.
＜What is Cinematic Mode? >
Cinematic mode is a mode that predicts when a subject is likely to enter the frame during movie
recording and automatically focuses from one subject to another, and also allows you to change the
focus and adjust the level of bokeh effect after shooting.
The camera responds not only to the face, but also to the hand. By the way, the cinematic mode is
also compatible with the internal camera, so you can take selfies with no problem.
In Cinematic mode, you can adjust the f-stop (aperture value), which controls the amount of light
entering the camera and thus the "blur" effect of the photo. Click on the "f" in the upper right corner
of the picture to adjust the f-stop.
The smaller the f-number, the more blurred the background becomes. On the other hand, if you
increase the f-number, the bokeh effect becomes smaller.
When the f-stop is set to the lowest possible value, the background blur is quite large.
On the other hand, when the f-number is set to the maximum, the background is not out of focus.
The appeal of Cinematic mode is that it allows anyone to shoot movies that look like movies by
using different levels of blur.
You can also easily adjust the focus by tapping on the subject.
To be honest, I didn't think it was possible to shoot such high quality video on an iPhone.
One iPhone is enough to shoot a YouTube video. The cinematic mode would also be perfect for
shooting "Vlogs" where you capture your everyday life on video.
With the new iPhone 13, the range of content that can be shot has been greatly expanded by the
evolution of the camera. With the new iPhone 13, the camera has evolved to capture a wider range
of content. It's no exaggeration to say that the era has arrived when you can take quality photos and
videos with just one iPhone, without having to carry around an SLR or mirrorless camera.
