Both the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are finally out. And though Apple’s bigger release is obviously the 8’s bigger sibling, the iPhone X, both the 8 and the 8 Plus are finding good market traction.
This can be due to a number of things: both phones ship with a brand new chip which is substantially better than that in the iPhone 7. Both phones also ship iOS 11, the latest update in Apple’s ever-expanding operating system. But perhaps its main selling point is the improved camera. There isn’t much changed spec-wise, but coupled with iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus’ backend improvements, the camera experience in the phones are expected to be significantly better.
This has been all-talk, but now, we have some photos that illustrate this improvement. A bunch of Singaporean photographers has taken the camera built in the new iPhones for a spin, and the end-results are very promising.
Check out the photos below.
This photo showcases how Portrait Mode has improved. The first photo is shot under natural light. The one immediately next to it is shot with a studio lighting effect applied.
These two play around the new contour lighting feature, which essentially makes your subject’s face more pronounced by peaking highlights on the cheekbones and casting shadows below the chin.
Low-light performance has appeared to have improved quite a bit too.
