Please note that due to the wider focal length on the wide angle camera of the iPhone Xs Max, and the required focal flange distance (effectively the distance from camera to lens) of the Exolens Pro / Zeiss Exolens lenses, mild vignetting is present in photo mode on the iPhone. This vignetting is not present in video mode.
