    Hello,

    I was off exploring an abandoned building today, and I thought it would be interesting to take the same photos on my iPhone 6 and iPod touch 6, so we can compare them. A few people have asked what the camera is like.

    I've put them in an imgur gallery instead of cluttering up this forum with the photos. The top photo is the iPhone 6, the lower one is the iPod touch 6. You can click the cog in the top right of each photo and click 'View full resolution' to see the original pictures.

    These are all with HDR switched on, with the focus/brightness set to the same part of the picture (by tapping on it).

    Personally, I think the IPT photos are on par if not a bit better than the iPhone 6's in certain shots. It appears that more detail is shown in the graffiti towards the top of the building in the first comparison photos.

    The iPhone 6 captures a few extra "centimetres" around the edge of the image, though.

    It was cloudy but really bright today. The iPhone 6 seemed to struggle with that a bit more. You can see the top of the photos is a bit washed out.

    Thank you for the pictures. To me, the pictures are comparable although it looks there might be a slight difference in the white balance (I wonder if the difference is the sapphire lens in the iPhone vs the Touch). It's all subjective but I also slightly favor the Touch pictures.

    Thanks for your efforts. Very helpful!
    How many professional reviewers have done this for the iPT6?
    iMore compared a few pics.
    Has any other reviewer posted comparison pictures?

    Yes, thank you for posting those images. Generally speaking, the difference in picture quality between the two devices is basically even. Subtle differences one way or the other depending upon conditions.

    The question that I have is, how much time does it take from the moment the device is awakened, unlocked, photo app selected, and picture taken? (Photo app can be running in the background).

    Dude. Nice neighborhood! I had trouble comparing the pictures... Too facinated by the craziness of the whole scene. How about shooting some puppies or kittens?

    Good shots. I'm really surprised how well the iPod took these photos. Think you could do some low light shots this evening? im curious to see how well the iPod does then

    I'm not that far from Cardross (Inverary). Beautiful part of Argyle & Bute.

    The A8's ISP does a great job of compensating for the small 1.1um pixels and the f/2.4 aperture. Can't wait to see what the A9's ISP is capable of!
