iPhone 5s camera review, straight from Patagonia

In our own camera comparison, I found that the iPhone 5s performed exceptionally well, especially when it came balancing colors and exposure. This was extremely evident in panorama comparisons. If you're still wanting more image samples, the guys over at Austin Mann have an amazing review of the iPhone 5s' camera posted. Not only do they have lots of sample images, they went straight to Patagonia to get them.

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!
