If you’re an agent that does their own photography for their listings, this post is for you! Photography is a critical aspect of the real estate industry, and we’re going to go over the top three phones to use to get the best real estate photos!

Having the right images posted on your listings can make a significant difference in the sale price and turn time of your properties. With the advancements in smartphone camera technology, real estate agents are now able to capture stunning images of properties using only their phones and some editing software. In this post, we’ll discuss the best phones for real estate photography (that are currently available) including the Pixel 7 Pro, the Samsung S23 Ultra, and the iPhone 14 Pro Max. Let’s face it, folks, these are the flagships and the top contenders. Other devices may have the same, or similar, functionality, but these devices are the most widely supported.

The Pixel 7 Pro is a top-performing smartphone, with a 50-megapixel (Ζ’/1.85) primary camera and a 12-megapixel (Ζ’/2.2) ultra-wide camera, allowing users to capture stunning images of a property’s interior and exterior. The phone also features advanced image processing algorithms that enhance the quality of the photos (digital HDR & Magix Erasure), resulting in sharp, detailed, vibrant, and clutter-free images. Additionally, the Pixel 7 Pro’s Night Sight mode allows users to capture stunning images in low-light conditions, which is particularly useful for indoor photography.

The Samsung S23 Ultra is another excellent option for real estate photography, with a 200-megapixel (Ζ’/1.7) primary camera and a 12-megapixel (Ζ’/2.2) ultra-wide camera. The phone also features an advanced periscope lens with 10x optical zoom, making it possible to capture high-quality photos of distance objects on large properties. The S23 Ultra also features Pro modes that give you greater control of your images by controlling your ISO and focus depth. Additionally, the phone’s 8K video recording capabilities enable users to create high-quality property tour videos.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max also has top-of-the-line hardware and software. Offering a 48-megapixel (Ζ’/1.78) primary camera and a 12-megapixel (Ζ’/2.2) ultra-wide camera. The 14 Pro Max also features advanced image stabilization technology, resulting in steady and sharp images. This iPhone features a LiDAR scanner, which enhances the phone’s low-light performance and enables faster autofocus. Additionally, the phone’s cinematic mode allows users to create professional-looking property tour videos with cinematic bokeh (out-of-focus blur) effects.

When it comes to real estate photography, the Pixel 7 Pro, Samsung S23 Ultra, and iPhone 14 Pro Max are your best choices. Even with that said, choosing the right phone ultimately depends on the user’s preferences and needs. If you perform any post edits to your shots the software you use may have weight on which device you choose.

In conclusion, the Pixel 7 Pro, Samsung S23 Ultra, and iPhone 14 Pro Max are perfect options for real estate photography and have the essential technology you need to get yourself as close as possible to the quality a professional photographer can provide.
