National Geographic photographer Jim Richardson took this photo in the Scottish Highlands with an iPhone. I mean, it's a beautiful photo. He's taken many more. And he and all of us will take even better photos with the iPhone 6 and the 6 Plus, because there's a all new iSight camera in it. It's an 8 megapixel iSight camera. It has Apple's innovative true tone flash. There's large 1.5 micron pixels, has a fast 2.2 aperture, but most importantly, there's a new generation eyesight sensor in it, to take better photos. It's packed with some cool technologies. Let me just tell you one. It's called Focus Pixels. What are those? Let's look in side at the sensor inside the eyesight camera. You'll see these dedicated pairs of focus pixels, and what they do, they have little shutters on them, they read the light coming in from objects, and as the lens moves in and out, it can tell whether that object is in phase or out of phase, this is called phase detection auto focus. It's a technology used by high end DSLRs. It's the best way to do fast autofocus.
