iPhone 6s Camera Looks Amazing vs All Previous iPhone Cameras [PICS]


Just like last year, Camera+ cofounder Lisa Bettany from tap tap tap has shared another ultimate iPhone camera comparison, this time with the latest iPhone 6s versus all other iPhone cameras, over at the company’s snap snap snap site.

This ultimate shootout sees the iPhone 6s up against 8 previous iPhone generations, in real-life situations, with images taken in a variety of tough light settings.

The comparisons shown on the website allow viewers to click on individual images which will expand to show shots taken by each iPhone. Below is a sample of the macro test, which starts with the original on the far left, and the iPhone 6s on the far right. Man, this camera has come a long way:

Another sample we’ll share is the backlit test, which is a tricky situation for any camera considering the lighting situation:

Bettany also performs backlit macro, daylight, portrait, sunset, low-light and low-light sunrise tests worth checking out. In the end, she concludes “there is an apparent increase in the speed of auto focus and improvements to colour accuracy, details and sharpness, especially in low light.”

In our early tests with the iPhone 6s camera, we have been thoroughly impressed with how this camera handled various lighting situations very well.

    Amazing? Consumer Reports says there’s no significant difference compared to the 6.

  • It looks amazing versus all over previous iPhone generations. No where did I say it was breathtaking compared to last year 🙂

    So, they’ve kept these pencils sharpen through all these years? 😉

    I remember when I was shooting images with my original iphone and thought they were great. Crazy to see the evolution.

    Keeping the pencils sharpen must be piece of cake..they managed to get the same cloud pattern at the same time around that boat too 🙂

    Remember to consider that the prior 3 models to the 6s had 8MP cameras rather than 12MP and even though Apple decreased the size of the pixels in the sensor i can’t notice any extra noise, the photos are remarkably detailed. I mean compare it to the other 12MP phones out there.
