I thought I would post these in case you were wondering if all the hype surrounding the camera in the new iPhone 6s was warranted.  I personally give it a resounding "yes", and I'll tell you why.

Disclaimer - I'm not posting this blog to subliminally communicate to you that  "I have the new phone and you don't".  I just want to be a help to you folks who have seen promotion after promotion from Apple about the "incredible" new camera that comes with the much hyped iPhone 6s.

First the specs:  It's an updated snapper with a 12 megapixel sensor - which is a definite boost from the 5, 5s and 6 models.  Now are megapixels the deciding factor on what makes a good picture?  No, not really.  Sometimes too many pixels can be a hindrance, believe it or not, but they somehow have manipulated the little dots to create more true to life colors and detail for such a small sensor.

Also, the selfie camera has been updated to 5 megapixels which will give you better detail as well.

I have also noticed that the phone is MUCH better in low light than in the past.

So, bla, bla, bla, right?  "Let's see some shots!", I hear you scream.  OK. Here are some from the Dutch Apple cruise this past weekend and also some kind of motorcycle event at the Capital (I also threw in one of our dog taken inside in low light)

All in all, you'll be very,very happy with the quality of the shots that come out of this thing. (By the way, you have to remember that the resolution was cut WAY down to make it onto this blog- the originals are crystal clear…and again- don't let them tell you that megapixels don't mean anything.  If you have a lot of them you can crop to your heart's content and not lose quality.  It gives you a second chance to create a great shot out of a possible bad one!

If you get an iPhone 6s or 6s plus, by all means - send me some shots on our Facebook page!
