iPhone 4S camera vs. iPhone 5S camera
It’s that time of the year again with Apple updating their iPhone and as always coming out with an updated camera. I always like to do a side by side comparison of the new iPhone with a past model to see how the camera improvements turn into real life results. For those of you who missed the news on what Apple has updated this year here is a breakdown of the top improvements to the camera in the iPhone 5S:
So how do these updates compare to the camera of a iPhone 4S? Lets take a look at some side by side comparisons. These are a mix of images and not a scientific study. Overall the iPhone 5S looks to give a little more saturation out of the gate compared to the iPhone 4S but in low light the exposure with the 4S was far better every single shot. The 4S exposure was lighter in low light as you can see in the first photo below. Click on any of the photos to view a full screen view.
The 5S does make up for it with the flash however. I never used to use the flash at all however the 5S new flash does seem to provide a much better color temperature on the flash giving you more natural results.
Here in a decent lit shot you can see they both are very comparable.
For outdoor shots that are in good light the 5S does shine. The color saturation especially the greens is nice and deep and along with more contrast the images pop.
