Apple iPhone 5s camera sample shots

Here's some sample shots we've taken with the 8-megapixel camera on the iPhone 5s

Apple has just launched its new flagship iPhone 5s in Australia. We've got our hands on a review unit, but what's the camera like? We've taken a quick first look.

None

If you're not familiar with it, the new iPhone 5s has an upgraded camera compared to last year's iPhone 5. It still uses an 8-megapixel sensor but now has a 5-element lens with an aperture of f2.2.

Apple says the surface area of the sensor is larger than its predecessor, and the pixels are larger at 1.5 microns, so the camera should offer improved performance in low-light conditions.

The camera flash on the iPhone 5s has also been upgraded from single-LED to dual-LED and Apple says it's the first with different colour temperatures on each LED. The "true-tone flash" has one cool and white LED, and the other warm and amber.

There's also two new software features on the iPhone 5s' camera. A burst mode can take up to 10 photos in a second when you hold down your finger on the shutter key, while a slow-motion recording mode can capture 720p video at 120 frames per second.

Putting aside the new features, how does the iPhone 5s camera fare for everyday photos?

All of the below photos were captured with a iPhone 5s at 3264x2440 pixels, around 7.9-megapixels.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
