I’ve discovered that the iPhone 5S is a very capable camera. The color and exposures are amazingly good, the HDR exposure feature does a stunningly good job in tough situations, the panorama feature is nothing short of amazing… Once I figured out what the camera could do well I began to forget all the things it couldn’t do at all.
What surprised me most was that the pictures did not look like compromises. They didn’t look like I was having to settle for second best because it was a mobile phone. They just looked good.
