Apple put a lot of work into the iPhone 5s camera, but is it worth it?
10fps burst is pretty impressive. We used 25 frames to make this animated gif. You can see a larger version of it here.
This is seriously impressive. 10 full-resolution photos every seconds for up to 999 photos. That's literally a minute and a half of burst that, when combined, makes some truly killer animated .gifs.
Also, after shooting a burst, the iPhone automatically stacks all of the images as one singular image in your camera roll, so as to not clog it up. Users can then go in and select "Favorites" to appear in the camera roll if they like.
The burst mode proves just how fast the processing power of the iPhone 5s really is. While no one knows for sure how and when app developers will start utilizing the power of the 64-bit computing, the burst mode is one place you can see it in action.
There really should be a native way to export animated .gifs, though, especially since this function is so well-suited to it.
The App Opens Faster
I took this photo while walking, and didn't miss a stride. Full-Res.
The iPhone camera is convenient because you always have it, but opening into the camera app has always been slow. Now, it’s noticeably faster. I was using an iPhone 4 before I started testing this, and often found myself missing shots because of the slow-opening app. Not so much anymore.
Of course, it could always be faster, and we’re assuming it will be with all future versions.
