Apple busted out its iPhone 6 and the larger iPhone 6 plus today and — amongst the talk of larger screen sizes, faster processors and sleeker designs — what has us most excited is the updated camera technology.
The cameras on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus could be the only snappers you’ll ever need, if Apple’s hype and early previews are to be believed. Here’s what we know about the integrated cameras so far.
Iphone 6 camera: All new sensor
Both the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus use an all-new sensor. Like the one on the iPhone 5S, it’s an 8MP unit, with 1.5-micron pixels and an F/2.2 aperture, but it now lets in 80 per cent more light and comes with phase detection autofocus, like you normally get on DSLR cameras.
According to Apple, the tech uses dedicated pairs of pixels that read light coming in from objects and can tell whether they are in or out of phase, allowing for autofocusing that is twice as fast as the previous-generation phone. Focus changes are now almost imperceptable, both in stills and video modes.

Iphone 6 camera: 240fps slow-motion
The 120fps slow motion feature on the iPhone 5s was jawdropping, allowing users to capture video in slow motion. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus take things to the next level with a 240fps slo-mo mode that lets you slow things down by twice the amount. If Matrix-style bullet time effects are your thing, then you’re going to love this mode – it looks absolutely stunning.
Iphone 6 camera: Single-shot HDR photos and HDR movies
HDR is a handy feature on the iPhone 5s, but it leaves behind multiple versions of a single photo. With iPhone 6, you only get a single shot left behind, so there’s less tidying up to do when you’re finished snapping.
Iphone 6 camera: Image stabilisation
The cameras in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are almost identical – almost. Where the 6 Plus differs is in its ability to offer impressive image stabilisation. Not only does this promise to improve pictures taken by those with shaky hands or those operating in low light conditions. Some of the low light shots demonstrated by Apple during the iPhone 6 reveal were stunning. Check out the picture of the two girls above to see what we mean.
