"Demonstrating telephoto splicing on the Pixel 7 Pro"

OK, so I couldn't resist it. iPhone 14 Pro Max versus Google Pixel 7 Pro, Steve-style, so 1:1 crop comparisons galore.…

@stevelitchfield and I are here this weekend with another two-header whilst Steve is tied up in London. I'm comparing the Xperia 5 Mk.IV with the Edge 30 Neo, RRP's £600 apart(!) and Steve's all-in on camera testing, iPhone vs Sony. Plenty more as usual, so do grab it at or via your podcatcher.

Long live the queen (etc, for 2012 Jubilee)

Shot on iPhone 14 Pro Max in 2x smart crop mode. Apple has done a stunning job with the image processing on the Quad Bayer sensor - Android phones with similar sensors were getting nowhere near this quality. IMHO
