First iPhone 7 Plus camera images surface, see how it performs in real life
posted by Victor H. / Sep 12, 2016, 3:20 AM
The new iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus come with vastly improved cameras: in fact, Apple has even claimed that the hugely controversial removal of the audio jack on the new phones stemmed from its desire for cramming a larger camera and other components in.
And it has: the iPhone 7 now has optical image stabilization (OIS) that requires extra space, while the iPhone 7 Plus has a brand new dual camera system with a secondary, telephoto lens in addition to the standard wide-angle lens. You can use the latter to zoom in two times in an image, and digital zoom has also been improved and reaches up to 10 times (albeit, with a very noticeable degradation in quality after a certain zoom length).
iPhone 7 Plus camera tested at an NFL gameAll of this is the theory, but what's more interesting to the regular user is the answer to the simple question: "How good do real-life pictures look?" And to answer that, Apple has handed out an iPhone 7 Plus to Sports Illustrated photographer David E. Klutho to capture the thrilling moments of the recent Tennessee Titans - Minnesota Vikings game, one of the first games in the new NFL season. Take a look at these first real-world iPhone 7 Plus pictures right below. How do you like them?

Yep, and high dynamic range scenes too That's another area where Apple has fallen behind Samsung/Google The iPhone 7's bigger sensor/pixel size and wider aperture should help in both those cases Will be interestin to see iPhone 7 Plus vs Note7 vs Pixel XL

Lol more like Sports Saturated. That purple so bright I feared it would spill over and stain my shirt. Hopefully the end product will be better than this. Has to be.

I imagine he's tweaked the shots, even if it's using the in-app settings. These look more like an S7's pics than an iPhone's - Apple tend to veer towards "natural" colours and sharpening as standard. Sports photographers often turn things up to 11 for impact.

If these aren't edited with added saturation etc... then what are people gonna say? Complainers of Samsung being over saturated & this looks significantly more saturated than any phone ever created..I highly doubt these are unedited.. Definitely look great overall,but ya, mostly well lit scenes with the exception of the parachuter..

Looks so good, the colours just pop. The grass looks very natural, unlike the S7's camera, I like it. Still not sure about a smartphone this year though.

This camera looks worst that last years, you can't even see the cheerleaders faces really with all the pixelation, and it looks videogameish. It's looks like ultra aggressive image processing that's not even done good. Compared to android flagships from 2 years ago its bad, I think the 6s is better
