Photographer Tests iPhone 6 Plus/iPhone 6 Camera, Pixels, Exposure control and more

Both Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus started to hit Apple stores shelves in many places all around the world like in the U.S, Canada, Australia and more... Teaming up with The Verge, professional photographer Austin Mann put the handsets’ enhanced cameras through the paces on beautiful locations in Iceland.

He started taking a series of photographs and videos by the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus showing off improvements such as the new Focus Pixels, manual Exposure Control, higher-resolution Panorama photography, Slo-Mo video enhancements and Optical Image Stabilization.

The results are quite impressive: the more accurate sensor, Apple’s enhanced signal image processor inside the A8 chip and iOS 8′s software improvements enable noticeably sharper images, despite the same eight-megapixel camera resolution.

Enabled by the new Apple-designed image signal processor, Focus Pixels provide the sensor with more information about your image, “giving you better and faster autofocus that you can even see in preview,” according to Apple.

The following picture was taken by iPhone 5s's rear camera:

The same scene was captured, but this time using iPhone 6 Plus. The difference in quality and details is noticeable.

The following image, also taken on an iPhone 6 Plus, blew me away.

“I really enjoy the challenge and spontaneity of capturing powerful images without directing them,” writes Mann. “I love to explore, see a moment coming, line up the shot and capture it as it passes”.

This image was taken on an iPhone 6 Plus without exposure control.
And the same image, this time taken using exposure controls.

Check out Mann’s video below.

Beautiful right?
