The iPhone 6s vs Nikon D750: 4K video beating the pants off a DSLR
posted by Daniel P. / Oct 08, 2015, 2:13 AM
Don't believe us? Check out the video below, where the 4K footage from the iPhone 6s gets compared to the best footage produced by a Nikon D750 digital SLR camera. The iPhone 6s, claims Lee Morris from Fstoppers, shoots with way better detail, livelier colors and a more pleasant contrast setting, compared to the DSLR.
Granted, the imaging processor inside the iPhone are leaps and bounds above the processing power in the DSLR, and the iPhone's 4K optimization has likely been a year in the making, but it's reassuring to know that in broad daylight the phone in your pocket can shoot as good a video as some DSLRs, and then some. As a bonus, we are throwing in a bikini shoot that Lee Morris did with the iPhone 6s, just to prove what a phone is capable of in the hands of a skilled photographer.

It hasn't and it won't. Even the iFan websites like theverge and gizmodo have been meh about the 6s camera and they make (and made) any excuse to level it with the competition in their comparisons. If their own fanboys can't get behind it in full strength, then likely an objective website like Dxomark will rate it higher than the current crop of Android phones only by some miracle.

Any cell phone can do it, beacuse D750/D810 can't even do 4K. Offcourse you wouldn't know this as you have no clue about cameras and only clicked this link because it mentioned iPhone. They won't try against Samsung NX1 or Sony a7R II which can do 4K and are targetted at videographers. It's just news beacuse it's an iPhone. If he compared Note 3, one of the 1st 4K capable phone, result will be similar.

The "bitter" man has spoken and has spoken the truth. Honestly, I didn't know about this and thank you for enlightening me with the info. I would understand a site which doesn't deal on stuffs like phones or cameras to post this but Phonearena? It looks like they want to post everything that's fruity! And loh, the fans...they're no less.

And the next Galaxy 7 will take the spot back, then iPhone 7 will take it again... and so on and so on..

I doubt they will this year either The iPhone 6S is worse than the iPhone 6 in low light Apple should have improved the lens, f/2.2 isn't enough these days But dxomark has fallen in quality, so maybe it's still possible since the Z5 ending up coming up on top even though it is worse than the S6 according to reviews/comparisons Which is kind of surprising considering the S6's sensor is 1 year old now

Funny since a Nikon D750 doesn't shoot 4k but only 1080p, nice comparison there

Agree. Always hyping up the iphone man. Phoneradar already uploaded iphone 6s heat test. People might want to check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?

What's special about that video? Lumia 930/Icon hits 44°C under 10 minutes and still works fine, even under this heavy load. Actually the temperatures are really decent for a 4K video recording this long and with flash.

Is this relevant since the Nikon doesn't even shoot 4k?
