The iPhone 6s has Apple’s best iPhone camera to date, but just how good is the company’s 12-megapixel marvel?
To give you an idea, Apple recently handed an advance iPhone 6s Plus to documentary and VR makers RYOT. They used it shoot a short documentary about a painter in Haiti, who uses colors to transform his poor neighborhood.
It’s a great demo of the iPhone 6s Plus in action — and a fantastic short film, to boot.

“Apple has done an amazing job with the iPhone 6s Plus – not just with packing a 4K camera into a phone, but where the iPhone 6s Plus really shines is in its ability to capture color,” filmmakers David Darg and Bryn Mooser said in an interview with TechCrunch.
“We were blown away at the color accuracy and the image overall. It’s really impressive when the telephone in your pocket can produce images that rival high-end cameras. The iPhone 6s Plus’s footage performed really well in post production, too. It doesn’t seem that long ago that we were stoked by our first camera phone, which shot a tiny pixelated image. We’ve come so far, so fast!”
This isn’t the first time we’ve been blown away by the cinematic qualities of iPhone cameras, of course.
In May last year, Bentley shot an entire ad using an iPhone 5s, which it then edited from the back seat of a car using an iPad Air. In the lead up to Christmas 2014, photographer Brooks Kraft snapped the festive decorations at the White House using an iPhone 6 Plus, while earlier this year, a breakout hit film at the Sundance Film Festival, Tangerine, was revealed to have been shot using an iPhone 5s.
The iPhone 6s is following in a proud tradition!
