iPhone 6s and 6s Plus Cameras and video with more megapixels
A 12-megapixel camera is a huge jump for Apple, which has been holding onto its 8-megapixel sensors in its iPhone for years. Autofocus will pick up the pace, according to Apple, and color accuracy is a point of pride.
The 5-megapixel front-facing camera now brings the iPhone 6S on par with a lot of today’s competing handsets. Of course, it includes the company’s proprietary voice chat feature, FaceTime video. Here’s something wildly different, though. Instead of including a dedicated flash for the front-facing camera, which only a few phones do, Apple is using the home screen to light up instead. This is meant to increase the brightness of those selfies even in low-light situations.
A few test selfies taken in the demo rooms looked really good, with crisper, richer color and details than previous iPhones.
The iPhone now has a 12-megapixel camera that can shoot ultra high-def 4K video.
Apple has included a new feature called Live Photos which turns stills or still photos into a video or GIF, basically, images that move, also called as animated pictures or images. And, the thing is that you don’t have to do anything in order to get Live Photos, it’s just a inbuilt feature in iPhone 6s and 6s Plus camera, It’s an automatic thing; the only work you have to do is take the picture like normal. That’s right no need to edit your Photos or images, just take a picture with your iPhone 6s camera using Live Photos feature and it will turn in to animated GIFS.
The only downside of the ive Photos feature is that photos taken with Live Photos feature are of twice the size of the normal photos, due to added animation of the photos; which causes the increase in size. So make sure that, if you are buying an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus just go for the bigger size device.
iPhone 6s lets you shoot in 4K resolution, which has over 8 million pixels — four times more than 1080p HD video. 4K video recording, at 3,840×2160-pixel resolution. You’ll be able to take 8-megapixel camera photos while recording at this ultrahigh resolution. Just like last year’s phones, the iPhone 6S Plus is the only model here with optical image stabilization, which helps correct blur from shaking hands — especially when shooting objects at a distance.
FaceTime Camera (iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus)
There’s a 5-megapixel FaceTime front camera in the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus, which is a significant improvement over the 1.2-megapixel FaceTime camera in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. iPhone 6s and 6s Plus now has a a new True Tone Retina Flash that works with the front-facing camera, and makes selfie’s more clear and crisper.
Retina Flash causes the display of the iPhone to flash brightly just ahead of when a picture is snapped, improving selfies in low light. The Retina Flash is three times as bright as the standard display thanks to a custom display chip, and it’s been engineered to match the ambient light, just like Apple’s rear-facing True Tone flash.
