Last Friday, I walked into the Verizon Wireless store after work to check out demo iPhones and see what I’d need to move over from AT&T and get Melissa onto a family plan with me. I was told that they didn’t have any demo phones, but that they had some in stock to sell (with no line?! on launch day?!)… So, I went with the iPhone 6 and the idea for this post was born: How do the cameras of recent iPhones stack up at Walt Disney World? I rounded up an iPhone 4, an iPhone 5, an iPhone 5s, and an iPhone 6 to find out!
The methodology for this post is simple: take two pictures with each phone at each location, use the phone’s auto-enhancement feature on one of each, and post the results. I chose familiar weenies (aka park icons) to make the pictures as relatable as possible. Big thanks to Jonathan for providing the iPhone 4, iPhone 5s, and some legwork for this project.
When you click to enlarge the photos (you ARE going to click to enlarge the photos, aren’t you?), the biggest differences you’ll notice are in color and how scary the iPhone 4 gets at full crop.
We start with Main Street Train Station:
On to Cinderella Castle:
To EPCOT! Where there was entirely too much Food and Wine traffic for us to care to go closer:
Tower of Terror:
Tree of Life:
I hope you guys enjoyed this post. It’s a little outside of the norm for me – except for that ever-popular MagicBand teardown post – but was a lot of fun to make. I’m wholly satisfied making the jump from the iPhone 5 to the iPhone 6, in case you were wondering. Also, a neat trick I gained in stepping up from a 5 to a 6 is the ability to do 240fps slow-mo video, as seen here and here.
