iPhone 5s vs iPhone 5c vs iPhone 5: iSight camera shootout!

The iPhone 5s once again shows Apple's focus on cameras, bringing several improvements to the 8 megapixel iSight camera on the back. These include a dual LED white/yellow flash called True Tone, a larger f/2.2 aperture, bigger 1.5mm pixel sensor, and, of course, the next generation image signal processor (ISP) in the new Apple A7 chipset. What does this mean for overall, every day photo quality? What does it mean for skin tones and low-light? What does it mean for motion and dynamic range? And how does it compare to the also just-launched iPhone 5c and last year's similarly equipped iPhone 5? Let's take a look!

How to record slow motion videos on your iPhone

The Camera app on the iPhone 5s can not only record video but it can record 120 frames-per-second (fps) slow motion video as well. Slow motion video means just what you'd expect — everything recorded moves more slowly, but still smoothly. It's like the effects you see in movies and on TV. Better still, Apple lets you quickly and easily set in and out points for the slow down effect at any time, so you can make sure your video only goes slow, and stays slow, for the precise moments you want.

How to take photos with your iPhone or iPad

The Camera app on the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad means you're never more than a swipe or tap or two from taking a picture and capturing a magic moment. While the camera app might look simple, there's a lot going on inside. It has auto-focus and auto-exposure, and both can be changed with just a tap of the screen. There are also options for high dynamic range (HDR), to switch between rear-facing and front-facing cameras, and even live filters and burst mode.

iPhone 5s preview: iSight camera combines improved sensor, smarter image processor, makes everyone a better photographer

The iPhone 5s continues to showcase Apple's attention to their camera technology, iSight and FaceTime HD both. Once again hardware and software combine to create photos and video far better than the sum of their parts. That includes a bigger sensor with 1.5 micron pixels and an f/2.2 aperture. It's also includes an intelligent burst mode, a dual LED with white and amber elements, electronic image stabilization to reduce blur, and slow mo mode lets you record 720p video at a silky smooth 120fps. Here's how Apple describes it:

Imagining iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C: iSight and FaceTime cameras

For several years now, Apple has made the camera a priority on the iPhone. It's one of the world's most popular cameras, and every keynote for the last few years, an entire segment has been devoted to both its optics and its processing. With the upcoming iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c that's not going to change. Apple are masters of using software and hardware not only in tight integration, but in a way that creates far more than the sum of the parts. The iPhone camera is one of the best examples of that. So where can they take it next?

Nokia has just released their latest commercial for the Lumia 925, and in it takes square aim at the iPhone 5, and more specifically the camera. In Apple's own ads for the iPhone 5 they claim that more photos are taken every day on the iPhone than on any other camera. Nokia has taken this theme with a "better photos every day" claim. Bold, not necessarily untrue, but either way, iMore is going to find out!

iOS 7 vs. Instagram vs. Google+ vs. Twitter: Black & White photo filter comparison

I recently previewed the new Camera app Apple will be releasing alongside iOS 7 this fall, and one of the things that stood out for me the most was not so much the inclusion of built-in photo filters - everyone seems to be adding those these days - but the subtly and restraint shown in which filters Apple chose to include. Not only aren't there any tilt-shifts, frames, borders, or vignettes, but there's nothing overly aggressive about Apple's selection in any way. How does that compare to current king of photo sharing, Instagram, and to the other big social photo sharing services, Google+ and Twitter?

iOS 7 preview: Camera gains real-time filters, and... a square

The Camera app has gotten the same objectified and gamified makeover as the rest of iOS 7, but Apple also managed to sneak in a few new features as well. First is, um,Square mode. The second is Filters. The bigger news, however, is what was taken away, including the signature shutter animation and button treatments are gone.
