A few months back, Apple’s senior director of camera hardware Graham Townsend revealed the amount of drudgery put in behind every image clicked by an iPhone. He pointed out that the latest Apple devices—iPhone 6s and 6s Plus— perform 24 billion operations for taking a single photo, which is the reason behind its unmatched camera proficiency.

Now a Goa-based photographer from Israel, Sephi Bergerson, has demonstrated the true capabilities of the iPhone 6s Plus’ camera and the results were no less than miraculous. The Award-winning photographer shot an entire Indian wedding ceremony using the iPhone 6s Plus.

On his personal blog, Bergerson said, “I love using the iPhone but, despite all its advantages, I don’t think it will take over and replace the ‘regular’ cameras. What the iPhone represents is a completely new breed of camera.”

The new iPhone 6s Plus camera is superb in terms of resolution and colour rendition, but low light photography was difficult, on the dance floor for example, as the ISO limit was not letting me shoot without having motion blur,” he said.

Additionally, the iPhone also allowed him to edit the pictures instantly and share it with the client immediately. He suggested that the iPhone’s impeccable camera prowess combined with exceptional computing features, access to the internet, and the largest library on Earth allowed him to do much more than a DSLR.


“The iPhone is possible a bigger revolution than digital photography,” he added.
