The ultimate photo shoot: on location in Iceland with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus

The ultimate photo shoot: on location in Iceland with the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus | Travel Photography | Scoop.it

As with any smartphone in 2014, there's no more important feature than the camera. It's what we use to take photos with our friends and families, how we remember what we ate and what our kids looked like way back when.


The camera has always been one of the iPhone's most impressive feature, and this year, Apple says it's gotten a huge upgrade. The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus feature new sensors, better optics, new technologies that aid in stabilization and HDR, even slower slo-mo video, and much more. They're meant to destroy your point-and-shoot, your camcorder, and maybe even your DSLR.


To see what the new devices can really do, travel photographer Austin Mann went to Iceland on a week-long photography adventure. He's been shooting in some incredible places, in incredibly difficult conditions; he's put both iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to their ultimate test.


Here are his photos, and his story. For lots more of both, check out his website.
