If you’ve just upgraded to iOS 10, you might be wondering, where’s the camera icon that used to be in the bottom-right corner. Swiping up on that corner doesn’t do anything either. Did Apple remove the camera shortcut in iOS 10? I mean, given the whole new Lock screen changes, you wouldn’t put it past them. But no, the shortcut for launching the camera is still there. There’s no icon for it though.
Following on from my look at still capture results, in which the iPhone 7 pipped the competing Galaxy S7 to the post by virtue of more natural image processing, several commenters remarked that they’d like to see a video camera test too. Do the same processing comments apply? On the whole yes, as you’ll see below…
The iPhone 7, reviewed here, has imaging that’s distinguished from that in the iPhone 6s by having a larger aperture and OIS, Optical Image Stabilisation, which should both significantly improve its low light photos. But how far does this spec bump take the iPhone 7 in the wider smartphone imaging world? I pitch it here, by popular demand, against the populist mass-market champion, the Samsung Galaxy S7, shot for shot, pixel for pixel.
Who says you can’t take incredible photos with a smartphone? The annual iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS) proves that Apple’s latest devices are all you need to take great images on the go — and here are the best iPhone photos taken in 2016.
Photos with text over them are kind of hot right now. My Instagram feed is full of those really beautiful looking photos with quotes on them. Or motivational text. Have you ever wondered the secret behind them? And how you too can easily create such images?
If you want a smartphone with an optical zoom lens, you have to settle for a bulky device with a huge hump in its back. But a new Apple invention for a compact telephoto lens that folds away when not in use could change that for future iPhones.
The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus have the ability to shoot at a 4K resolution, which means that these videos will have 4x times more pixels than a normal Full HD video. However, even if we all agree that shooting 4K videos is great, those files start to get really, really big. So big that sharing 4K videos isn’t as simple as we would like.
Getting the perfect selfie is very important to some people. And your selfie opportunities shouldn’t be constrained by poor lighting. So that’s where the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus bring in the front-facing flash. Basically, the phone’s screen acts as a the flash for the front-facing camera. This “flash” adds just enough extra lighting to really improve the quality of selfies and other front camera photos when they are in poor light. But what about folks that don’t own the newest generation of iPhones? Well, fear not, you can enjoy “selfie flash” on your older device as well.
In my opinion, selfies may lead to the end of the world, but nevertheless they are amazingly popular amongst pretty much everyone one. So much so, Apple created a Selfie album in iOS 9 Photos. With the introduction of Live Photos in iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, everyone’s selfie game will need to step it up a notch. It’s time for Live Selfies.
