If you look through iPhone 6s camera specifications and its main functions, you might consider that its essential improvement is a sensor on the main camera. This component has been upgraded from 8MP (the same performance since iPhone 4s) to a modern 12MP. In reality, the leap in image quality is the least exciting addition to the most famous phone camera on the globe. A lot more interesting is what has been added to the camera mounted on the other part of the device. Or you might look for what is happening to the video recording feature.
To understand the gadget’s photography capabilities, experts ran a series of side-by-side comparison of iPhone 6s and 6 cameras. These image evaluations were performed at almost microscopic scale.
First, the new iPhone’s 12MP camera is a 50% improvement from its previous 8MP. Having these extra details recorded with each photo offers better choices for the user. iPhone owners can now adjust the exposure or recompose the image while maintaining excellent resolution.
The camera has problems with including all the extra pixels inside its delicate sensor. While this multitude of colored dots form a high-quality image, each of them does a slightly less professional job. It means that, overall, you get instead fuzzy and smudgy details. This is an issue that Apple has countered successfully with intelligent technologies. Now, the details in photos with great lighting are sharp and all colors are outstanding.
A perfect stability between all image’s elements is vert hard to achieve. If a digital camera is limited in its photo performances, they will look smooth and pale. If you increase its options too much, the pictures will look amateurish and overexposed. Luckily, Apple’s subtle modifications in iPhone 6s seem to achieve the right balance. Its photos display the additional sharpness that 6’s images have, while providing a very natural look to their subjects.
Thanks to Apple’s improvements, the iPhone 6s shows better and more powerful coloring in its photos, compared to the previous generation. iPhone 6 remains a fantastic smart phone with a great camera, but if you look closer to a newer photo, you will notice that 6s has better details.
Some might choose the 6’s overall performance, but iPhone 6s has recorded more details and nuances. Thus, you have the choice of maintaining the default levels or maximizing the features for a more powerful image with very high contrast.
The rear camera’s efficiency in low lighting is a little bit better in the new gadget. Still it is not something that will blow your mind, since low light performances continue to be far behind professional cameras. For one-hand usage, the iPhone 6s does no better than its predecessor when it comes to shooting dynamic images in sport mode. Also, HDR mode is excellent for including extra elements in some low lighting environments
A stronger grip might do the job with the iPhone 6s and the optical image stabilization feature. This could reduce all minor movements during picture taking in challenging situations. But, remember that it is not difficult to reach the camera’s limitations quite early.
