13 Pro Max vs 12 Pro Max Night Mode
7

As promised, went out Saturday night and took a bunch of Night Mode photos with my 13 Pro Max and father's 12 Pro Max. Result is similar to my test indoor; 12 have better highlight retention, brighter shadows, better text sharpness (how?) while 13 have more texture on some surfaces. It seems even with bigger sensor and brighter lens, 13 would ramp up ISO to have shorter exposure rather than same exposure time as 12 for better result.

Not exactly happy with the sideway upgrade and some downgrade Apple implemented regarding processing. Would like you guys' opinion on this. If you want original JPEGs to compare, here is link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mSI5FuhMNpV5AKS--hvZOsR7x8xgDwQ5/view

If there are only 2 comparison photos, it's 12 Night Mode max and 13 Night Mode max. If there are 4 photos, it's 12 Night Mode auto, max, 13 auto, max.
