While our smartphones are great camera replacements as far as compact cameras are concerned, we’re not sure if they’re at that point where it could take on a DSLR, especially given how DSLRs have access to a wider range of lenses, different processors, and much bigger sensors.
However in a recent YouTube video posted by Lee Morris of Fstoppers, he has compared the new iPhone 6s to the Nikon D750 DSLR which was launched last year. Now in terms of photos we suppose you don’t need to test it to find out who won, however when it comes to 4K video recording, which device do you think handled it better?
If you thought that the win would go to the Nikon D750 by default, think again. According to Morris’ findings, it seems that the iPhone 6s has beaten the D750 in terms of 4K video recording. Given that Apple only featured 4K video recording in this year’s iPhone, we have to admit that we are surprised it held up pretty well against a professional camera.
However this isn’t to say that the iPhone 6s will beat out other more dedicated and higher-end equipment in the market, but budding videographers looking to start shooting high-quality video and think they need to invest in new and expensive equipment, you won’t have to look further than the iPhone 6s, at least as a start.
That being said, Morris does note that these are shot under ideal lighting conditions. This means that unless you’re going to be guaranteed that you will have ideal lighting throughout the shoot, the D750 will probably be better suited for the job.
