The difference between iphone6s and iphone7 camera
Apple unveiled the iphone 7 and iphone 7 plus on Sep.08 2016. Bucking the usual trend, the new iPhone remain the same design that Apple first debuted with the iphone 6 in 2014.
And the camera of upgrade was great praised by Phil Schiller who called it as the best camera among all models of iPhone and even all other smart phones’! What makes Apple’s SVP so proud of his products? You may feel the same curiosity as me! So where is the exact difference between iphone 6s and iphone 7 camera? Let’s look closely and find out!
First, let’s focus on their feature list and make some comparison and contrast from the rear camera and front-facing camera.
The iphone 7 and iphone 6s both come with a 12mp insight camera. The difference is that the 12mp shooter on the iphone 7 features a f/1.8 aperture 6-element lens, while the iphone 6s features a f/2.2 aperture, which means the iphone 7 can absorb more light , especially in low-light condition.
What’s more, comparing to iphone6s’ True Tone Flash, the iphone 7 comes with Quad- LED True Tone Flash which is up to 50% brighter.
And another distinct difference is that iphone 7 features IOS, something which the iphone 6s lacks and helps reduce blurriness when taking photos and videos.
And then let’s see the difference in Front-facing Camera between iphone6s and iphone7.
The obvious feature of iphone7 is Live photos support! This eye-catching design provides the users a dynamic photo and helps to record a more vivid moment. The Face Time HD on the iphone7 has also been upgraded. It now features a 7mp sensor, up from the 5mp sensor found on the iphone6s and meanwhile it is capable of recording videos in Full HD resolution.
From what I mentioned above，have you gotten the point? The old saying goes: knowledge starts with practice. So let’s find out the truth from practice. The following two pictures were taken from an assessment result and show us subtle difference between iphone 7 and iphone 6s camera.
As far as I’m concerned the photo from iPhone 7 looks wider and warmer in color. From the sky we can feel it clearly that the ipone7’s is brighter than iPone6’s. However, I think the photo from iphone 6s looks better and more comfortable. Actually, as an ordinary user I can’t pick out so much difference from the pictures. If you are a man of insight, just choose one model according to your preference.
