    will the iphone 6s take better 1080p vids with a 12mpx camera or will it make no difference?

    At 1080p, the extra 4MP makes not much difference. It is what goes on under the hood that makes the difference.

    Needs comprehensive reviews and comparisons.

    It's optical image stabilised for one.
    If you shoot 4K you should be able to select a 1080p image from that (and it could be smoother)

    No, it's not. At least for 6S it isn't.

    And I don't think this is true either. If you shoot 4K and then downsample it to 1080p, then maybe.

    Yup - OIS for video and photos only on the 6S Plus. Was thinking along the lines of shot stabilisation on FCP X can use the larger image. Do we know if the 6S Plus actually shoots above 4K, then can use this leeway to stabilise the video for example?

    so.. basically no one knows (i'm not even talking about an iphone, but a camera in general. would upping the resolution affect 1080p video?)

    8MP is 3,264 x 2,448, so it's already well above 1920 x 1080. The quality of the camera itself such as the sensor/lens/software will make a difference, but not the fact that it's 12MP vs 8MP.

    A NY blogger put out a new video this morning that was shot with the 6S. Here is the link.
