iPhone 11 Road Test
Something new and shiny from Apple? Hmmm, better buy it. Over the years, I have taken hundreds of great photos at the Monterey Jazz Festival. Last year, though, they announced that cameras with interchangeable lenses will not be allowed. So last week, Apple comes out with this new iPhone that has three lenses, including a “telephoto” (actually 52mm – not that telephoto). I decided that was the solution to my problem. Bingo. Bought a new phone / camera. I used it for several days prior to going to MJF. Here are the results. The new camera works great, close up. At a distance, though, it can get a little fuzzy. See what you think. Also, remember my photo show at Talk of Broadway in RWC this coming October 10. Wine and cheese. 5:30 – 7:00, about.
Included in this short video are stills of Angela Davis interviewing Maxine Gordon, the wife of jazzman Dexter Gordon. You might check out her new book, Sophisticated Giant: The Life and Legacy of Dexter Gordon.
