I continue to enjoy my and it goes with me everywhere, serving as my mini-tablet, smartphone, and camera. The camera is easy to use and produces great results with some creative ways to capture content.
Apple improves the camera with every iPhone release and the iPhone 6 Plus has the best camera they ever made, including optical image stabilization to make it even better than the iPhone 6. Not all of the methods in this gallery are new, but they do show off the power of the iPhone 6 Plus camera.
The iPhone 6 Plus iSight rear camera includes:
The front-facing camera is also improved, especially in regards to low light performance. This camera includes:
I highly recommend you backup your iPhone photos and posted an article on to make sure you never lose any of your creations.
The new iPhone 6 Plus gives you some manual control over your subject. Tap on the display and then slide your finger up or down to see the exposure dynamically change. The viewfinder on the display shows you exactly what your capture image will look like when captured.
Sometimes you may want to lock the focus of your camera and then move to another position. On the iPhone 6 Plus, simply tap and hold on the object to lock the focus and then move to your preferred position to then capture the image.
You can choose to have the time set for 3 or 10 seconds on the front-facing camera so you can get yourself in a better position to take a selfie. Burst mode capture will also occur when the timer is activated.
You can set HDR to auto, on, or off. I prefer to leave it in auto all the time and have found that the iPhone does a great job at determining when to fire up this mode. You will see a yellow HDR icon appear when HDR mode is automatically toggled on by the software.
You can choose to apply eight filters to your images. You will see a thumbnail preview of what the filter will look like on the display. Tapping on the filter will then open up the full screen view of this applied filter.
Available filters include:
One of the new features I am enjoying more than the others is the ability to capture time-lapse videos. Apple doesn't provide you with advanced settings, such as interval and video length, but it is very easy to use.
Simply select the time-lapse option and then tap the record button to capture cool time-lapse videos. You should setup your iPhone in a tripod or on a stable platform to capture a consistent experience.
I am also enjoying the Slo-mo video capture mode and included a couple of samples I recently took on a trip to New York.
