WOW sucks. Still 8mp
Did you ignore the other camera improvements? MP's aren't the end all.
Yeah they are.
Megapixels aren't everything. This is why I have a digital camera that is only 3.2MP from 2001 and it can take clearer and more sharper pictures than my 5S.
Megapixels aren't everything but 8MP is getting to be a little ridiculous, IMO. Time to step it up just a bit.
I am kind of glad that the 8MP stayed... the dimensions are just fine and the file size won't increase... unlike the quality of the photos.
Perfect response from someone who knows nothing about photography.
I am satisfied with what I saw, I am just hopng for better low light photos.
I'm satisfied with the other improvements to the camera. Like said before, MP isn't everything.
Only if they make the sensor bigger.
And since people are already freaking out about how much the lens protrudes, I about that's a great idea.
I love having more megapixels on my larger cameras. But that's exactly the point: they're larger cameras. Not gonna happen here.
Since the 3G I've been saying that it would be better to focus on sensor and optics, rather than MP count. It looks like Apple have been following this pattern. IMO they have the best camera BECAUSE of it.
I wouldn't mind a 10mp cam just to make me feel better, but I understand it doesn't really matter.
I would have like 12MP because sometimes I need to crop to fix composition, but I'm good with 8MP.
I remember they said that with the HTC One too and HTC moto x (MP don't matter) then they ended up being the worst on the market.
with that said, I think the higher the mp the more mb's the pictures are and its getting really annoying having 5-8mb pictures.
Tell that to HTC one M8 users.
Huge iPhone fanboy here, but I've seen pics taken with a Samsung Galaxy S5, and they were the best pics I've ever seen from a phone, hands down. I don't think the iPhone 6's camera can match them.
You do realize that the cameras found in phones that claim multiple tens of megapixels actually typically only capture the equivalent of 5 megapixels of detail when used in the real world right? (if this does not make sense to you, read up on "lines per picture height" and "modular transfer function" as it relates to cameras, and then read up on how adding noise and performing noise reduction processing in an image reduces resolving power)
I'm a digital photographer that has been published in places like the cover of Wired magazine, and it always hurts my brain when people who have no idea how cameras work talk about megapixels.
Two thirds of smartphone photos are taken in low light and on average the iPhone 6+ users will have the clearest and sharpest photo library of any flagship phone. Read that a few times if you need to. Megapixels do not equal detail, never have, and never will. Here's why:
Canon 1DX Low Light, original resolution: 5479x3652
Galaxy S5 Low Light, original resolution: 5312x2988

You can have a 40 MP cam and it will look just as good at 8 with the right tech.
But the front camera is the problem!
A bit over 10 years ago, I spent over 4K for a Canon 1D MKII. Keep in mind that was just the camera body. By itself it could do nothing. It was the primary working pro sports camera of its time and many Sports Illustrated covers and photos were taking with that camera. It was, and still is, 8MP. Eight million really BIG pixels. More than plenty.

You actually made a thread about your ignorance regarding photography.
Except the iPhone has double the megapixels.
I'm disappointed too. Oh well.
One thing I'm curious about, this whole protruding camera thing supposedly was for interchangeable lenses...but I don't recall seeing anything about that...
Did they seriously just design the new lens to stick out on purpose as a design element and added nothing really to the camera, but wanted this phone thinner for no reason?
