The iPhone 6s and 6s Plus brought in one of my favorite Apple features – Live Photos. Live Photos captures 1.5 seconds before and after a photo is taken, creating a short, animated image that can be shared and enabled with 3D Touch. But, in a major oversight (in my humble opinion) from Apple, there isn’t much else you can do with that Live Photo.
I remarked in my recent full review of the Apple iPhone 6s a few days ago, that image quality from its rear camera is ‘excellent but not quite class leading’. Of course, the word ‘class’ is somewhat ambiguous here – did I mean to include camera specialist phones like the 1/1.5″-sensored Lumia 1020? Did I merely refer to 2015 camera-toting smartphones? And what about platform? Below, I look at each of these, including comparisons to imaging on the original iPhone 6 – suffice it to say that the camera in the iPhone 6s manages to be ‘up there’ while knocking spots off much of the competition in terms of performance and usability.
It wasn’t too long ago that taking quality pictures required a legitimate camera and local photo center to print the photos. But with the proliferation of smartphones equipped with decent cameras, that is no longer the case. While your iPhone camera won’t match up with something like this, it is more than adequate for taking great photos. And if you want to take better photos than the average iPhone photographer, these 11 tips will help you become an iPhone camera pro.
The iPhone is my go-to camera to capture all those dope moments in my life. But every so often I want to clean out my camera roll and get rid of those old or not so awesome pictures. You can do this the standard way, by going into your camera roll and deleting pictures by album or individually, but why not make it a little more fun?
The iPhone 6 Plus and iPhone 6 come with a vastly improved cameras, with features like 1080p HD video at 60 FPS, slo-mo video at 240 FPS, time-lapse videos, continuous autofocus, focus pixels and cinematic video stabilisation.
If you like shooting photos with the iPhone’s camera, but miss the advanced controls from your dedicated camera, you’ll love iOS 8. The new Camera APIs in iOS 8 let developers give you control over camera focus, white balance, and exposure settings.
