Schiller - but has a new sensor.
The True Tone flash, you may recall, can change color dynamically to match lighting conditions.
Schiller: See dedicated pairs of focus pixels. Phase detection autofocus is used by high-end DSLRs. It's the fastest way to do autofocus. They can focus almost twice as fast as previous gen iPhone
Schiller: More noise reduction in new iPhones
Auto-focus twice as fast as before? I don't recall anybody complaining about the old phone...
Schiller: People love taking portrait photos with iPhone.
Phil's quick to point out that the gorgeous photos we're seeing have not been modified at all. There's great depth of field in a shot of a lizard, and a lovely macro of a butterfly.
Just a note about last year's M7 processor - The M7 chip, introduced in the iPhone 5S last year, works alongside the main chip in the device to continuously measure motion data without draining battery life. Apple said last fall that the M7 would enable a new generation of health and fitness apps, but only a handful of apps -- including Nike+ Move, DayOne, Runtastic, and Strava Run -- took advantage of the chip.
The M8 will work the same
Schiller: Everyone loves taking panoramic photos with camera. Can take up to 43 megapixel photos with the new iPhones
Phil says the stitching will be even better thanks to the new gyroscope. That's good to hear.
Schillers: Image signal processor a part of A8 chip helps get better photos
Schiller: Everything I've been telling you is true across both cameras. One feature different between them - image stabilization. iPhone 6 has digital image stabilization. 6 Plus adds something new - optical image stabilization
Proper, optical image stabilization in an iPhone! Another solid reason to consider the 6 Plus.
Optical image stabilization is much better than digital. It's important in traditional cameras
"We combine that with the M8" Phil says. I thought he was referencing the HTC One for a moment there. Whoopsie.
Schiller: This works great in low light scenarios when you have to take a longer exposure. We love the iSight cameras on our phones and they take beautiful cameras
Schiller: It's probably been awhile since you've seen cameras and digital camcorders
Schiller: I think our parents used to use these
Schiller: The iPhone has become the world's most popular video camera
Phil is harshing out on compact cameras and camcorders.
Schiller: 1080p video at 30 frames per second or 60 frames per second
Schiller: Slo-mo video up to 240 frames per second, double last year's figure
Up to 240fps for your action videos! Those slow-mo recaps of your wipeouts in the skate park are going to be totally intense.
Schiller: Another great feature, cinematic video stabilization.
