iPhone X vs. original iPhone: How much better is the camera?Ten years on, we see how much the iPhone's camera has evolved from the original.
[MUSIC] It's been ten years since the original iPhone was released. So, how far has the camera come in that time? We have an original iPhone that still works And we are going to compare it to the iPhone 10 just for fun. [BLANK_AUDIO] [LAUGH] What is this Seriously it's like its baby I can't, actually I can't even see the screen very well. Wait, ios, it's ios. I think it's ios 3 or 4. The original iPhone has a two megapixel rear camera, there's no flash and definitely no video recording. The iPhone X has two rear cameras, one wide angle and one telephoto. It also has a flash and records video in 4K. On the phones, there's no comparison between the old LED screen on the X, which blows the originals out of the water. So to be fair, let's take a look at them outside of the phone. Because the lens on the original iPhone has a narrower field of view, View, you don't get as much into the shot. Photos from the original look like you'd expect from any point and shoot camera with a small sensor. But surprisingly in good lighting conditions, they don't loose that much detail and the colors look pretty similar between both images. The iPhone 10 can obviously capture a wider dynamic range. Portrait mode has been a welcome addition to the iPhone's camera but it adds yet another step to taking photos. The interface on the original is so simple you can't even pinch to zoom or adjust the exposure. There's just a shutter button and that's it. So we wanna take a look at that shot we just took but the original iPhone [SOUND] well touchscreen is not super responsive. Hello? [MUSIC] [MUSIC] Selfies weren't really a big deal when the first iPhone was released. So it's no surprise that the original has no front facing camera. Instead, we have to resort to this. All right, there's the button. All right, here we go. Ready? One. You [CROSSTALK]. Two. [MUSIC]. [SOUND]. I took it. I have to say you know what that was the good old days because you actually had to shave yourself, ask somebody and be like, can you take my photo and interact with humans. On the Iphone ten you can even do Portrait mode on the front facing camera. [MUSIC] But it's low light with the original iPhone really shows it's age. A smaller sensor and no image stabilization means that you're left with a photo that's barely usable. The camera on the iPhone has definitely improved, but maybe it's not as big of a jump as we had expected. Considering it has been a decade. You basically just went back in time. What was shooting with that again like? So much fun, I forgot how exciting it can be. It's compact, I don't have to worry about dropping it. Okay, the photos are really two megapixel resolution And not that great, but the best cameras are the ones that you have with you. But what would you miss most if you had to go back to an older phone to take photos. I would definitedly miss the focus and the zoom. But that is not that groundbreaking. I mean in 10 years, I kind of would've expect more. Maybe the portrait mode, but it has been 10 years like This can still hold up. Uh-huh. And let us know what you think the phone of the future will look like. Specs, features, anything like that in the comments below.
