Photographer uses every iPhone model, from the original to the iPhone 6, to take the same photos - here are the results
Apart from larger displays and various enhancements, the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus also come with an improved 8 MP iSight rear camera. Featuring phase-detection autofocus, this camera appears to be Apple’s best ever - though some folks seem to dislike its protruding nature. We already showed you camera samples from the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, but maybe you also want to see how the new snapper performs compared to the cameras of every other iPhone model that Apple released since 2007.

Photographer (and app maker) Lisa Bettany took exactly the same photos with all the iPhone versions ever launched (minus the 5c): original iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, and iPhone 6.

It’s really interesting to see how the iPhone camera evolved when it comes to focusing, color reproduction, and overall photo quality. Check out some comparison shots in the slideshow below, and visit the source link for full-size photos.

I think they call those iPhones now, so you should update your terminology.

True, it looks better than 4 did in every picture and looked better than the 4S in the strawberry picture. I wonder why the low light pictures sucked between the 3GS and 4S though, the low lights are better in the others, even the original 2 Iphones.

I think they're making all their money on these articles because insecure android fans can't help but click, read and comment.

Touché-st touché of all time. The last part's a bit debatable, though. I'm not sure most of them even read before commenting.

The articles get clicks, thus ad impressions, thus money for Phone Arena, plus reading material for Apple fans and haters alike. Everybody wins.

You're saying that simply because you hate Apple, no matter how good the quality of apples cameras are you will always criticize them.
