Apple Showcases 'Shot on iPhone 6' World Photo Gallery on Homepage [Updated]

Apple has refreshed its homepage to showcase a gallery of photos taken with iPhone 6 across the world, unsurprisingly coinciding with today's announcements of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The gallery shows photos taken by iPhone 6 users in several countries, including the United States, Canada, Japan, Iceland, South Korea, China, Scotland, Indonesia, Thailand and New Zealand.

Some of the photos have been filtered, enhanced or shared with apps such as Instagram, Snapseed, VSCO Cam, Mextures, Filterstorm Neue, Camera+ and Adobe Photoshop Express. "People take incredible photos and videos on iPhone 6 every day," writes Apple. "And here are some of our favorites. Explore the gallery, learn a few tips, and see what’s possible with the world’s most popular camera."


Update 2:00 PM PT: Rene Ritchie at iMore reports that this is just the beginning of an iPhone 6 photography campaign involving 77 photographers, 70 cities and 24 countries. Apple will be featuring photos taken with an iPhone 6 in print media, transit posters and billboards across the world.
"From Sydney to Beijing to San Francisco to New York City to London and more, Apple will feature the iPhone photographers and their work on posters at transit stops and stations and in newspaper ads and on billboards. Not the iPhone 6. Not its camera. Not product shots. But shots taken by the product — by the iPhone 6 camera."

You obviously have never used Lightroom before. Apple admitted themselves that those photos were retouched.


Huh?

You said any photo can be made to look good with retouching. I said no, depending on the camera a photo can start out too noisy to look good after retouching.

I can't figure out what or why your reply has anything to do with that.

Still rocking a 5s here, and while I do think it's overall the best iPhone Apple has ever made and the camera is amazing, there's no question the 6 shoots an even better image. iPhones just tend to be exceptionally great cameras.

I keep telling myself I'll hold off til the 7, but if the 6s takes the camera as far as the rumours have suggested, I might have a hard time sticking to that plan :)

----------

To be fair, I can post process any photo to look amazing. I want to see what these look like "out of the box".


To be fair, no you can't. The sensor on a camera will determine how much or little processing noise winds up in the photo to compensate for exposure. You start post processing a noisy image and you're going to amplify that noise. The results will not look amazing.

But when I take pictures on my iPhone 6 there is always over excessive noise reduction that ruins fine details. :(

The camera in the iPhone 6 is really great, I'm not denying that. I've achieved some really nice shots on it. My frustration with shooting with my iPhone 6 Plus is that I can't shoot RAW. You end up with somewhat compressed, lossy JPEGs which don't edit well. So you're very restricted with what you can do afterwards. I'm used to shooting RAW with my camera and then having the freedom to make it into exactly what I want in Lightroom. You just can't do that with iPhone shots, you get the photo you take and that's pretty much it. Well, you can apply a bunch of filters with apps like VSCO, but ultimately you still end up with compressed, lossy JPEGs with which you can't do much.

If Apple brings out a phone that shoots RAW, THEN I'll be impressed!


You're hard to impress #

But maybe you're using the wrong tool for your purpose?

i'm calling BS. they must be using some prototype iPhone 6 camera. I'm not professional photographer but I've owned a DSLR for years and know how to use it. I really liked my iP5 camera but the iP6 has been a disappointment with the quality of photos. see this thread.
