National Geographic photographer Jim Richardson decided to ditch his Nikon pro camera for the Apple iPhone 5S while traveling to Scotland.
The ace photographer, who clicked 4,000 pictures in 4 days there, was impressed by the camera capabilities of the iPhone 5S. He says that the 5S has a very capable camera.
He goes on to say, “The color and exposures are amazingly good, the HDR exposure feature does a stunningly good job…Best of all it shoots square pictures natively, a real plus for me since I wanted to shoot for Instagram posting…What surprised me most was that the pictures did not look like compromises. They didn’t look like I was having to settle for second best because it was a mobile phone.”
Here is the (cropped) photo that Jim put on his Instagram:
Such words from the mouth of a National Geographic photographer is no small thing for a smartphone camera.
