iPhone 5s vs iPhone 5c vs iPhone 5: iSight camera shootout! Iphone 5 фотоаппарат


iPhone 5S vs iPhone 5 - Still Camera Comparison [Photos]

To give you a glimpse of how much the camera has improved in iPhone 5s, we have got a comparison of photos taken from both the latest iPhone 5s and last year’s iPhone 5.

It is important to note that:

  • The photos shown below are completely untouched.
  • All comparison photos were taken in the same spot with the exact same lighting conditions.
  • No tripod or any sort of stationary aid was used to take these photos.

Outdoor Camera Samples (Normal):

These photos were taken at noon, using the standard camera options. No filters were used, no editing was done. The iPhone 5 was running iOS 7 and the iPhone 5s was running iOS 7.0.1.

iPhone 5s

iPhone 5

In outdoor conditions, the difference in quality is barely noticeable, since both cameras are working their magic in the best possible conditions. But if you examine closely, the iPhone 5s’ white balance seems more correct. (See: The color tone of the leaves.)

Outdoor Camera Samples (Macro Mode):

The same rules apply for these photos as the one above, except tap to focus was used to focus the object in the front, which is a must while taking macro shots.

iPhone 5s

iPhone 5

The difference in image quality is again negligible since both the photos were taken in a brightly lit environment.

Indoor Camera Samples (With Flash):

These photos were taken at my workplace, where the room is mildly lit. And the difference in the photos is evident this time around.

iPhone 5s

iPhone 5

The photos taken with the iPhone 5s look brighter and more correct in terms of color, thanks to its new dual-LED flash. While the iPhone 5 camera fares well here, the images are slightly dull and the hue is slightly off, it’s negligible to say the least. And yes, thanks to the iPhone 5s’ new f2.2 aperture, which lets in more light onto the camera sensor itself, the image is less grainy when compared directly the iPhone 5’s f2.4 aperture lens.

Indoor Camera Samples (Without Flash):

This is where both iPhones fight out for supremacy, in low light. The iPhone 5s’ camera, and its f2.2 lens really does its magic, and combined with the new iOS 7 Camera app, images look less grainy, and details really pop out.

iPhone 5s

iPhone 5

As far as the iPhone 5 goes, the images turned out slightly dull, and was molested with grain and noise.

Indoor Camera Samples (Macro – Without Flash):

Just for the sake of variety, we took photos of an object up close using both iPhones without flash.

iPhone 5s

iPhone 5

Again, the iPhone 5s turned out to be a winner. The details of the object up close are more prominent in the photo taken with the 5s.

Indoor Camera Samples (Macro – With Flash):

Same setting as above, but this time with the flash on.

iPhone 5s

iPhone 5

The above photos are a good example of the difference in tone both the snappers are processing with the flash turned on. The photo taken with the iPhone 5s has a more warm tone to it as compared to the one taken with the iPhone 5. I would call this one a draw.

Final verdict:

The iPhone 5s’ camera is one of the best we’ve seen on a smartphone, to date. The only other smartphone which probably has a better camera than 5s is Nokia Lumia 1020. If you are into smartphone photography, and don’t mind Windows Phone, Lumia 1020 is probably your best bet.

iPhone 5S Camera Review

FeaturesHandlingPerformanceVerdictSpecification

The iPhone 5S was announced in September 2013 and features a new, larger sensor, with even bigger pixels. Resolution remains the same at 8 megapixels. Combining this with the larger f/2.2 aperture lens means there's more light getting to the sensor for improved pictures.

 

 

iPhone 5S Camera Features

The iPhone 5S has an 8 megapixel back-illuminated sensor, which is 15% larger than the sensor used in the iPhone 5, and a fixed f/2.2 aperture lens which lets in even more light. There is auto image stabilisation, which works by taking four images and combining the best parts. The iPhone 5S is capable of shooting at 10 fps.

The camera app has a limited number of modes. The photo app includes the ability to shoot HDR images. You can also apply one of 8 photo filters such as mono and chrome. You can shoot square pictures as well as 360 panoramas. The True Tone flash combines a white and an amber LED to adjust the flash intensity and colour temperature to light your subject perfectly. All images are geotagged automatically.

Videos are recorded in full 1080p HD. The 3x digital zoom is available during recording and you can also record slow-motion 720p HD videos at 120 fps. Pictures can be taken during video recording.

iPhone 5S Camera Handling

 

 

The iPhone 5S is the same size and weight as the iPhone 5. It is the perfect size for keeping in your trouser pocket. The only noticeable difference from the previous mode is the new home button, which is now flat rather than concave. The screen is a 4 inch widescreen multi-touch display with a resolution of 1136x640 pixels. It is wonderfully bright, clear and very simple to use.

 

There are very few options available within the camera app that comes pre-installed on the iPhone 5S. There are options to adjust the flash setting, turn HDR mode on/off, switch between the front and back cameras, switch to video mode and the shutter release button. There are other apps available which offer a self-timer, stabilisation and other settings which are familiar on compact cameras. Continuous shooting is also available now, just press and hold the shutter button.

Unfortunately, a common problem with iPhone's, the battery life is terrible for continuous use during the day, so regular charging is a must. We took a number of shots to test the camera's responsiveness, from switch on to first photo, shot to shot and focusing speed. We take a number of shots and then use the average to ensure accurate and consistent tests, making it easy to compare with other cameras. 

 

Focus / Shutter Response   0.1 secs
Switch on Time to Taking a Photo   28 secs
Shot to Shot without Flash   0.6 secs
Shot to Shot with Flash   2.0 secs
Continuous Shooting   10.2 fps

The continuous shooting speeds are very impressive.

 

 

 

iPhone 5S Camera Performance

Additional sample photos and product shots are available in the Equipment Database, where you can add your own review, photos and product ratings.

Apple iPhone 5S Sample Photos

Sample Photos - Images are colourful and well exposed. Portraits have decent skin tones, but there is a little red-eye when using the flash. Unfortunately the fixed wide-angle makes it difficult to take flattering portraits, but the front lens isn't as wide making it the preferred choice for a selfie. The new flash has also made a massive improvement to shots in low light.

Apple iPhone 5S Lens test images

Lens Performance - Image detail is good, certainly acceptable for an 8 megapixel sensor. You can use digital zoom but you'd be better off not using it and cropping images instead. Purple fringing isn't an issue, but moire is. It can be seen in our wide angle picture in the centre of the building. You can't get that close to subjects, so macro shots won't be brilliant. The last picture above clearly shows the benefit of the HDR mode, there is clearly more detail in the darker sections of the building. 

Apple iPhone 5S ISO test images

ISO Noise Performance - It's not possible to manually set the ISO. The iPhone 5S does generally use very low ISO settings, where noise is clearly not an issue. When you get to the higher ISO settings, such as ISO 1250 & 1600 which has been used in some of our review images, detail is quite poor.

Apple iPhone 5S White-balance test images

Previous Next

White Balance Performance - Again, you can't manually set the white balance. Under the incandescent lights a slightly warm image is produced, under the fluorescent lights the AWB performs well.

Panorama | 1/2415 sec | f/2.2 | 4.1 mm | ISO 40

Night Panorama | 1/120 sec | f/2.2 | 4.1 mm | ISO 1250

Panorama mode - The iPhone 5S takes 360 panorama images and the images are excellent - detail is good and stitching is superb.

Apple iPhone 5S Digital filters

Digital Filters - The camera app includes eight filters to use when shooting, examples of each are above.

Video - Below is a video recorded in full 1080p HD. Quality is good, although moire can be seen again.

 

 

 

 

Value For Money

The iPhone 5S costs around £500 without a contract, with a contract prices start from £29 from Three. Other premium smartphones with plenty of megapixels on their sensors include the Sony Xperia Z with 13.1 megapixels at around £270, Motorola Moto X with 10 megapixels for around £300, Nokia Lumia 1020 with 41 megapixels for around £350 and the Samsung Galaxy S5 with 16 megapixels for around £560. You may want to buy a case or bag to keep your camera safe and protected - have a look at our complete guide to camera bags.

 

 

 

 

iPhone 5S Camera Verdict

The camera on the 5S is the best iPhone one yet, but it falls short of receiving our recommendation award. Yes, you can take great pictures, but it's still frustrating that Apple haven't allowed more manual controls over shooting. There are apps available for a self-timer or even shooting with a slow shutter speed, but it's about time there were more options available in the native camera app.

As you can see below, there are plenty of pros and it's without doubt the iPhone 5S will prove popular amongst photographers. You can shoot at 10 fps, panoramas are superb and HDR images a great and easy to take.

iPhone 5s photo gallery

As expected, Apple unveiled two new smartphones today. The first was the plastic iPhone 5c, and the second the iPhone 5s. And if you’ve been paying attention to the rumor mill over the past several months, there shouldn’t have been any surprises.

The 5c comes in various bright colors, and is equipped with hardware comparable to that of the iPhone 5. And the 5s of course looks very similar to its predecessor, but it includes a faster processor, better camera and a built-in fingerprint sensor.

You have to admit that even though it sports the same design as last year, and new features were kept to a minimum, the iPhone 5s is still a very impressive handset–both from a design and performance standpoint. Here, take a look at this gallery…

The three iPhone 5s color options: Silver, Space Gray and Gold

The redesigned camera system features several improvements, including a F2.2 aperture and a dual-LED flash

Nike’s new app “Nike+ Move” uses the 5s’ M7 motion coprocessor to continuously track movement.

 

New custom, Apple-branded leather cases for the iPhone 5s

The iPhone 5s features a new FaceTime HD camera: 1.2MP photos, 720HD videos 

Here’s a reverse shot of the iPhone 5s in the ‘Space Gray’ colorway

iPhone 5s vs iPhone 5c vs iPhone 5: iSight camera shootout!

From every day photos to low-light and high-motion, iMore compares the iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, and iPhone 5 iSight cameras!

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!

iPhone iSight camera evolution

The iPhone has undergone a pretty dramatic evolution when it comes to camera quality. The original iPhone and iPhone 3G were, like most camera phones of the time, dismal. The iPhone 3GS began to change that, and Steve Jobs' famous iPhone 4 Keynote, where he pled the case for photons, cemented Apple's focus on making the iPhone not only a popular camera, but a good one. The iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c are no slouches. The iPhone 5s, even better.

Keeping it consistent

All settings used for this comparison were default, and the only app used was Apple's built-in Camera app. I did not enable HDR, use zoom, or any other camera feature unless otherwise specified. The only thing I enabled on each camera is grid lines so I could better line up shots and get consistent photos across the board. I also let the on-board software control all focusing for the sake of consistency, again unless otherwise specified.

iPhone 5s vs iPhone 5c vs iPhone 5: General everyday photography

From left to right: iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5

When it comes to general photography (what Apple markets as every day photography) in normal lighting conditions, all three cameras perform exceptionally well. The one thing I find fairly consistent across all the photos I took is that the iPhone 5s manages to balance tones and saturation better.

When a lot of color was involved, the iPhone 5s just seemed to produce a truer representation of what was actually in front of me. The iPhone 5 did a pretty good job at balancing but for some reason, the iPhone 5c almost always seemed to over-saturate colors. This is clear in the photo of the window above. The iPhone 5c on the far left had the hardest time producing true colors. In regular scenes, the difference wasn't terribly noticeable, only when bold or bright colors were involved.

The iPhone 5s produces more natural looking colors by a slight margin but all three cameras can hold their own in normal everyday settings and will produce images you'll be completely happy with.

iPhone 5s vs iPhone 5c vs iPhone 5: Low light photography

From left to right: iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5

I took the above photos simply to set expectations, nothing more. And because I wanted to see if the jump from f/2.4 to f/2.2 aperture really did much in way of night photography. As I expected, we shouldn't expect miracles here. I will point out that I did not use a flash for any of the above photos so I did not expect them to be perfect. If I had used a flash, I am confident that all three results would be completely different. My goal was simply to see if the iPhone 5s could handle extremely dark environments any better without the assistance of the flash. The only thing I noticed was that grain and noise is a little less noticeable in the iPhone 5s shots than in the ones taken with the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5.

From left to right: iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5

Now if we take a look at the next set of photos above which were all taken in more common dark scenes that most of us will encounter daily, such as the inside of a dimly lit room, all three cameras perform much better. We can also clearly see that in more realistic situations, the iPhone 5s camera has been vastly improved over the iPhone 5. The photo of the candle in particular shows a huge difference. The iPhone 5s clearly blows the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5 away. The iPhone 5c produces similar results to the iPhone 5, which is expected considering it's pretty much the same identical camera.

At the end of the day, at long as you're realistic about what kind of night shots you want to capture, the iPhone 5s does exceptionally better than any of its predecessors. I'd say it's the biggest leap forward Apple has ever pulled off in terms of low light handling in a single iteration.

iPhone 5s vs iPhone 5c vs iPhone 5: Flash photography

From left to right: iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5

The iPhone flash has never been extremely great at preserving tones. The True Tone flash of the iPhone 5s is supposed to solve this problem. So far, I've found the iPhone 5s to be all around better at preserving color and tones, with or without the flash. In the first photo of my dog Kaya, I particularly notice the difference as the iPhone 5s actually preserved the colors of her fur better than the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5. In almost all cases, the iPhone 5 blows out certain parts of the image, particularly colors. The iPhone 5c does a little better job of handling it but not much. The iPhone 5s flash seems to balance tones and not blow out images the way the other two do. I found this to be the case with the iPhone 5 during my HTC One vs iPhone 5 camera shootout as well.

The iPhone 5s flash does balance tones better as Apple says it does, but I'm more impressed with its ability to not blow out images as bad as its predecessors did.

iPhone 5s vs iPhone 5c vs iPhone 5: HDR photography

From left to right: iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5

HDR photography is one of the areas I found to be consistent pretty much across the board. All three cameras handled exceptionally well and balanced most environments with almost identical results each and every time. If you're concerned with this, you have nothing to worry about with iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, or iPhone 5. They pretty much all perform the same.

iPhone 5s vs iPhone 5c vs iPhone 5: Macro and zoom photography

From left to right: iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5

The above photos I used no zoom and simply shot both of them as close as I could get while focusing on the exact same point in each. All three performed exceptionally well but I did notice the iPhone 5 did not want to focus as close in the photo of the flower as the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c did. For some reason, the image would start to blur if I got any closer. Perhaps this is simply an anomaly with my particular iPhone 5. I'm not really sure. The photo of the driftwood was particularly interesting to me as the iPhone 5s again did a much better job of balancing color tones and saturation than both the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5.

From left to right: iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5

The two images above I did use the zoom feature and zoomed in as far as possible. Mainly because I hate spiders and for two, I wanted to see how much noise I could get each camera to product considering I've never found the zoom feature in any iPhone to be quite good. It has always produced noise very quickly in my experience. The iPhone 5 performed the worst in the photo of the spider completely blowing out the background color. The iPhone 5c handled okay in both photos but the iPhone 5s was the clear winner. I was pleased with the improvements Apple has made in terms of noise when using the zoom feature. The second photo makes it apparent especially when viewing a larger version of the image (you can do this by right clicking and opening in a new tab or window). There is visibly less noise and it balanced the actual colors of the skyline the best.

The iPhone 5s does better with zoom but with general close up photography, all three cameras perform well. I did however find that yet again the iPhone 5c over-saturated color tones. You can clearly see this in the photo of the driftwood.

iPhone 5s vs iPhone 5c vs iPhone 5: Motion photography

iPhone 5c

It's extremely hard to get the same set of motion photography shots unless you have an extremely controlled environment, which unfortunately, I do not. Instead, I decided I'd try and get the best motion shots I could in groups. Above you see 3 motion shots from each iPhone. I did not use the burst mode in the iPhone 5s out of fairness to the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5. However, the iPhone 5s should still reduce motion blur better as it takes four images and stitches the best parts of each together for the best possible shot.

Overall, I didn't notice a huge difference between any of them. Perhaps I'm just oddly good at capturing motion or the improvement isn't as huge as what Apple is saying. I'm not sure. This is one category I'd like to hear you guys' thoughts on. Surely the burst mode will help capture lots of motion better but I've yet to see a great deal of difference either way. Then again, motion blur always happens when you least expect it to and when you can't reproduce something so easily.

iPhone 5s vs iPhone 5c vs iPhone 5: Panoramas

From top to bottom: iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5

From top to bottom: iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5

From top to bottom: iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5

From top to bottom: iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 5

Each and every time I took a panorama, the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5 blew out some part of the sky where the iPhone 5s produced gorgeous results consistently. The reason for that is the dynamic exposure in the iPhone 5s. It adjusts throughout the panorama process, giving you better detail in highlights and shadows. It also captures at 30fps which provides for more information.

If you take panoramas consistently, particularly outdoors and in bright light, the iPhone 5s trumps both the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5 by quite a large margin.

iPhone 5s vs iPhone 5c vs iPhone 5: The bottom line

The iPhone 5s' camera contains many improvements over last year's iPhone 5. I noticed the biggest differences when it came to low light and with panoramas. If you're debating between the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s, and photography matters to you, get the iPhone 5s. Both cameras are good, but the iPhone 5s camera is better.

If you're moving from a different type of smartphone entirely, the decision may become a little harder depending what phone you're migrating from. The iPhone 5s isn't as much camera as Nokia Lumia 1020 , for example, but it could definitely give the HTC One or Lumia 920 a run for their money. Lack of optical image stabilization (OIS) means it's not quite as good in low-light, low motion settings, but Apple's ISP means it's as good if not slightly better in those "every day" moments Apple focuses on.
