iPhone 6, 6 Plus camera improvements vs. iPhone 5S sensor

With the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple put some new features into the sensors instead of increasing the number of megapixels.

In order to prove the quality of the new cameras, professional photographer Austin Mann took the two smartphones with him on a trip to Iceland in partnership with The Verge.

Comparing some shots of the new smartphone with the iPhone 5S, Mann highlights the photographic quality of the iPhone 6 Plus, thanks to the optical stabilization.

The results are impressive and it is clear how the camera quality is greatly increased compared to that of its predecessor.

The most interesting feature is the Pixel Focus which helps to create much sharper images with more accurate colors.

“The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus pack in new innovations that make the camera experience better and more fun,” the photographer concluded. “What I love most about these innovations is they focus on enabling iPhone users to better capture and share life rather than just beefing up tech specs. The Apple team clearly understands their user base very well and incessantly strives to create devices that solve technical challenges and simplify experiences and they’ve done that yet again with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. “

Austin Mann is known for his work in various major media, including the National Geographic and the Travel Channel.
