Link: Austin Mann’s iPhone 5S Review: Patagonia ☍

Shared on October 17, 2013

Austin Mann really puts the iPhone 5S’s camera to the test:

This iPhone 5S beats out the 5 in every camera test and in many ways I prefer it to my DSLR. Sure it has its pros & cons…but for the first time ever, I didn’t bring my Canon 1DX and I didn’t regret it one bit. That’s saying a lot.

The quiet beauty behind the iPhone 5S is what I find most powerful. The upgrades they made here aren’t ones that sell phones…instead, they focused on making the pictures better, even if it’s silent innovations in features no one even knows about…it’s not max megapixels or other flashy specs. The results are amazing and at the end of the day, people are going to really like the pictures coming from their iPhone 5S…and that’s really all that matters!

I’m sitting out this round of upgrades, as my iPhone 5 is about a year old, and while I was impressed with its improvements over the 4 it replaced, I’ll be excited for the 5S’s successor and what other ways Apple pushes the limits of phone photography.
