Terrible iPhone 11 Pro Max video quality

I had noticed that the video off my 11 Pro Max when in studio had considerably more noise than my XS Max did, didnt matter if it was 1080 or 4K at 30p. Took it to the beach yesterday to shoot a sunset and found the same thing. The photos came out great, but the video from the default 1X wide camera is awful IMO. Doesn't make sense that the photos would look so good and the video doesn't off the same sensor. Some had said the video got worse after one of the recent software updates. I guess I should update to the newest version of iOS and see if that changes anything.

Anyhow, here is some video with my 11 Pro Max first and then the XR. The video off the XR looks better to me. Not only better color but way less noise in the clouds especially. The really strange thing is the photos look great, but the video sucks. No idea how that happens, its the same sensor.
