Like in previous years, adventure travel photographer Austin Mann has put Apple’s latest iPhone cameras to the test, in locales such as Iceland, and Switzerland last year with the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
This year, he has taken the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to Rwanda, and again he has snapped some pretty impressive pictures with the latest iPhones, of silverback gorillas and more (his video of the trip is pretty impressive, all shot on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus). The shoot was part of a National Geographic story about travel photography and taking travel pictures with an iPhone 7.
Mann emphasizes he’s “seen a huge improvement in time-lapse quality”, noting exposure in dynamic lighting conditions such as sunrise or sunset have improved, with flickering reduced to a minimum compared to the past:
This one I shot this morning (in full auto settings) over nearly 6 hours and the camera ramped exposure beautifully throughout; also this was created entirely on a single battery charge!
He concludes these new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus cameras are a “completely different story” from their predecessors, especially the new optical 2x zoom in the 5.5-inch model.
