    Wow, the 6 may just have a great video camera. I think in many cases it will outperform my J1 so I'll probably get rid of that. Based on low-light results I'd be comfortable shooting a short film on an iPhone 6 at least in the daylight. It's day and night better.

    Although I do have to admit Apple had real competition with the S5's great 4K camera so I'd be curious to see a side-by-side:

    I think Apple may have Samsung beat on the video quality regardless.

    While I seriously doubt the 6 will be able to perform like a full sized camera, (Not a fair comparison) I am really excited for the camera. For me the camera is my favorite part. One thing you cannot beat is the quality/portability combo of the iPhone camera.

    The problem with the S5 is, either the stabilization is off, or poor. You REALLY notice the jitteriness of the person's hand with that video, whereas it wasn't really an issue on the 6.

    That said, I've taken video for a project on an iPhone 5s, and mixed it with some Canon 5D SLR video. No one who watched could tell they were different cameras. However, *I* could, but mainly because there are lots of things you can do with interchangeable SLR lenses that you can't with a fixed camera phone lens. Depth of field effects being a huge one.
