I think if you needed a better camera, than the 7 plus is for you. If not, no reason to bother

Good. Maybe because of careful choice of subject, but the typical clipping of highlights and shadows is absent in these examples, and they have some artistic merit, as well-- not a super amount, but a credible amount. Surely the photogs know this already. Keep shooting, boys and girls. You are on the right track.

It looks like on my freakin 5S. Honestly. Nothing special.
JackMC46 - September 14, 2016 at 7:46pm
Not even close. I see a bit of noise on my 5s with too much bright light or too dark because of the focus.

Dynamic range-- the iPhone camera clips highlights and shadows. If you are serious, get the LightRoom app, which allows you to shoot in RAW format. Then you can edit a more comprehensive file and dial in highlights and shadows, assuming you've exposed optimally.

Your 5s IS remarkable. Or do you buy into Apple's planned obsolescence so deeply that you can't see that. Think Kodak Instamatic ($19.95 way back when).

Placebo effect.

Maybe. Maybe not.

What a bunch of negative individuals, just enjoy the upgrade my friends, there is no room to be critical. We all know you want more and that you desert more.

They really are very nice but come on, let's be honest. A good photographer or just a person interested in photography knows how to capture the moment or make a landscape look fantastic using a much worse camera than this on iPhone 7 IMO

So you're saying a camera that under performs an iPhone 7 camera can do just as good?
rockurbottom - September 15, 2016 at 4:10am
No, he or she is saying that a photographer armed with a lesser camera will still produce view-worthy photos, as opposed to someone not sensitive to visuals equipped with a much better camera. In other words, creativity does tilt the equation in favor of enjoyability vs. tech's contribution wherein horribly concneived and executed images will be shared at phenomenal resolutions.
snarkblott - September 15, 2016 at 4:14am
No, a photographer with a camera that underperforms an iPhone 7's can do better. The camera is a tool. Without vision, go fish.
apfelstreudel - September 15, 2016 at 4:24am
If I may speak on behalf of the poster to whom you aim your question, yes. That's exactly what he/she is saying. The art lies in the human use of the medium, not in the mere ability of a camera to record a higher dynamic range or resolution, though those are wonderful developments.
Slidor - September 15, 2016 at 3:03pm
Yes, this is exactly what I meant. Of course, for amateurs such a good camera like on iPhone 7 is gonna help and do a great job in producing wonderdul, colorful photos. But IMO posting photos like these above is just pure marketing. If you take a look a few years back, for instance when iPhone 6 was revealed, they posted 'Shot on iPhone' photos series which I must say, looked very much similar and as great as those made with iPhone 7.

Nothing special they look the same as if I would of taken them with the 6S
Kk - September 14, 2016 at 3:01pm
You said it right
PHUKAI - September 14, 2016 at 4:08pm
Neither of you have. Even if it looks the same, it still takes in more light and puts in more detail.
Dang Right!
Dang Right! - September 14, 2016 at 4:30pm
You're damned right, Phukai! These imbeciles clearly did not read the full tech specs, which clearly stated the new camera "let in more light" and "put in more detail". Those have been long-awaited features by photography aficionados worldwide, all of whom were unsatisfied by the insufficient light previous iPhone cameras let in, and the sheer laziness of the same cameras for not putting in more details. I am glad you and I are on the same page! XO

The issue here is dynamic range. The iPhone cameras and software have lacked this. With LightRoom's recent introduction of the ability to shoot in their open-source raw format, .nef, they may possibly have introduced a game-changer. Remains to be seen (um, literally, if I may say). Raw will allow perspicacious editing better than .jpg or even .tif (tallkin' to you 645 Pro creators). So, at least give it a try. Most iPhone users don't get these issues. Ain't rocket science, by any means, but most don't want to invest so much time and energy into a stinkin' snapshot. That's where actual practitioners of the photographic craft do come into play. They have a better overall understanding of the importance of what Adobe's done (and I am no fan of Adobe, believe you me). Could develop into something interested, and, yes, the put is intended.

Almost well said, had you written "would have".
