Austin Mann Reviews the new iPhone 6s and 6s Plus

Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) for video is hands down the most significant improvement in the iPhone 6s Plus camera upgrade. The 6 Plus has OIS for stills (mainly helpful with low-light photos), but it wasn’t active when shooting a video or time-lapse. Now, with the 6s Plus only (not the 6s), we have active stabilization of all video and time-lapse content and the improvement is dramatic.

The time-lapse piece at the top utilized the Optical Image Stabilization significantly. The ability to create stable time-lapses anywhere, anytime, opens up so many doors. I can't wait to see what everyone creates with this.

If you had any doubts about going with the iPhone 6s Plus, they should all be absolved with Austin Mann's thorough review.

A Beautiful and Thorough Review of Yosemite

Just like clock work, every year Apple releases major updates to their operating system.  And accompanied by every release is John Siracusa's comprehensive review posted on Ars Technica. You can always read it for free on the website or do it like me and buy the complete ebook.


I've come to love his thoroughness and learn quite a bit when reading it on my Kindle or iPad.  Available now for only $4.99, sit back and enjoy the tour of Apple's latest Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite. Make sure to grab a Field Notebook and your favorite pen to jot some notes.

While you're at it, be sure to also check out Austin Mann's review of what Yosemite and iOS 8.1 offers photographers in his "Need To Know".
