The pros for photos include great overall exposure, impressive auto focus in both low light and bright light, attractive color rendering, great detail preservation for both indoors and outdoors, and good flash. The cons include luminance noise visible in low light conditions, color quantification, and ghosting/fringing with iPhone 6 camera.

It’s also important to point out the pros and cons of the video camera. Pros include fast and accurate auto focus, excellent stabilization, fine-grained noise, and attractive color in wide-range lighting. The list of cons include the occasional exposure inaccuracies and some stabilization artifacts visible during video capture. The latter issue is a problem with iPhone 6 Plus.

Apple always revolutionizes products with better features and better programs. Since the camera is one of the most important features for just about any smartphone, it’s no wonder Apple felt the need to enhance one of the iPhone’s most significant features.
