Apple is still preparing shipments for next week’s public launch of the iPhone 6s, but the folks at Vogue managed to get an early unit to test out the phone’s new picture taking skills at New York Fashion Week.

The new 12 MP camera sensor does not disappoint, according to Kevin Lu who became the first photographer to snap pictures with the new phone. 

Here’s what Lu had to say about the new camera after hitting the runways with it:


“It’s a lot quicker, so I can get more shots that I want, so I don’t miss much,” Lu told Vogue. “I also do videography, so the 4K video is really helpful because the quality is absolutely insane on a mobile phone, and you can see a lot of detail.”

Pre-orders for the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus went on sale last Friday. Stores won’t sell the new device until September 25th, but Lu says the 12 MP camera will make it easier for amateurs to take top-notch shots.

“With a 12-megapixel camera, you can really get some incredible details,” explains Lu. “And you can zoom in a lot closer when you need to.”
