    That camera is just moving everywhere.:D

    You can't argue it's because of different perspectives, cause that would make the top side visible.

    Some would say "Steve would never allow this".

    But seriously, whoever made this rendering is careless and do not deserve to be hired by Apple.

    Tim Cook made a mistake, he said "So that's the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6" (or something, he definitely repeated the iPhone 6 but I'm not sure on the context).

    Ooh, that is some bizarre rendering. Perhaps intentional? Definitely wrong though.

    It's perspective the opposite way. So it would make the bottom side visible if we could see the bottom.

    So Tim cook isn't the terminator and apple campus isn't run by machines

    That's refreshing :D

    Is it that hard? If you turned a phone towards you, you would see the top edge. If you turn the phone away from you, you would see the bottom edge.

    In the second photo, the protruding camera's position lowers, and you see more of the bottom edge of the buttons… As expected.

    Huh?

    In order to lower the camera position, you should look from the top down, not the other way around.

    Stop random imagining and pick up your phone and see it for real.

    BTW, for your question, it is really not that hard. You really can't argue this, nor does anyone else.

    The remarkable thing is, given how long the keynote is, how few mistakes were made!

    Ok.

    My pointer finger marks the camera. When straight on, it is near the top. When I rotate the phone away from me, it lowers. Again - as expected.

    But whatevs - it's not really worth getting upset about.

    Hmmm...I didn't really hear the mistakes because some Chinese woman was talking too loud during like half the keynote.

    I've always wondered if someone from Apple reads these forums.

    If you do, please ignore these threads. Its just launch week banter. We're not serious. I know it sounds crazy, but just go with it.

    I noticed that the guy (too lazy to look him up) doing the demo on :apple:watch, he was speaking on how great the crown was as a tool; yet using the screen to swipe. :cool:

    Youre point on perspectives are fine. My question is, why would Apple change the perspective in shots like this? There is literally no reason to do so, especially in a rendering...

    Most of the press photos have the camera bump removed, at least they showed it.

    Yeah, that I can't speak to… I'd like to see it in context but not enough to go scrub through the keynote. My one thought is that with the phone tilted away from you, that it very slightly accentuates how thin the phone is up where the mm markings are located.

    I can't explain the top pic, but the lower pic I assumed to be reflection from the stainless steel Apple logo on the back, not the camera. Could be wrong though...

    You are technically looking up at those pictures.

    The perspective has to change.

    Hold your iPhone with your pointer finger on the camera and look at it so the top is near level with your eyes. Now pretend that phone got taller (like in the picture) and raise the phone up without moving your head/eyes. The camera will be lower overall because now you are looking up at it.

    I figured I was looking directly from the side, just close up on one than the other...

    I made this very scientific example of what we are seeing so we can all wrap our minds around this optical illusion.

    This is two packs of playing cards that represent phones (lol) the stainless steel bits represent the cameras (lol). They are offset to show the red pack is a bigger phone but you can see the stainless steel bits are in the exact same spot on each.

    [​IMG]

    Now if we take a picture of them keeping the top of the blue pack level then that means we are going to be looking upward at the taller red pack.

    [​IMG]

    MAGICALLY making the camera look lower. Btw I was cracking up making this.

    BTW it would have taken two pictures to actually depict how Apple did it. But at long as one is taller and the camera is in the "back" it will give the optical illusion of being lower. I just used one pic so it was clear what is happening.
