AP­PLE IPHONE 5S

HWM (Singapore) - - Multi- test -

The iPhone 5s’ strengths lie in its glass and color re­pro­duc­tion. The lens is im­pres­sively sharp from cor­ner to cor­ner, with no bar­rel dis­tor­tion and lit­tle to no flare or chro­matic aber­ra­tion. What this means is that your im­ages will turn out look­ing sharp with­out dis­tor­tion, and you won’t see odd col­ors or lens flares when shoot­ing against bright light.

The iPhone 5s has the best color re­pro­duc­tion of the lot, with nat­u­ral-look­ing hues and a wide tonal va­ri­ety – you see more col­ors and they look more re­al­is­tic. It also has the best flash, the abil­ity to mix am­ber and white light with the True Tone flash pro­duces a more nat­u­ral-look­ing light that makes straight-on flash photography more palat­able.

Its weak­ness is in the mushiness of its im­ages, ex­cept at base ISO set­tings like ISO 64, the iPhone 5s seems to pre­fer sac­ri­fic­ing im­age de­tail to sup­press im­age noise. While you might see lit­tle lu­mi­nance noise, there will be a lack of fine de­tail even from low ISO sen­si­tiv­i­ties and on­wards.
