iPhone 6s to Compete with DSLRs in 2015?

A reliable source; a new Sony sensor (Sony supplies Apple’s iPhone camera); and an Apple patent for swappable lenses make for intriguing product possibilities in 2015.

You can read about the details below, and they are… tantalizing.

Less than two weeks ago we wrote an abridged history of the DSLR video revolution.

We listed Apple’s iPhone 6 – along with the Panny GH4 and a pair of Sonys (the A7s and A6000) – as the cameras that have most profoundly altered the digital video landscape in 2014.

Now word comes down from Daring Fireball’s John Gruber (thanks to Prismatic for the find on Tech Radar) that someone, somewhere, is whispering sweet somethings in his ear about what might be “the biggest camera jump ever” for Apple.

Sigh. And I JUST got the iPhone 6.

iPhone 6s vs DSLRs?

Via Prismatic:

In the latest episode of The Talk Show, Daring Fireball's Gruber claimed to have heard from “a birdie of a birdie” that “next year's camera might be the biggest camera jump ever.”

Getting more specific he went on to say that “I've heard that it's some kind of weird two-lens system where the back camera uses two lenses and it somehow takes it up into DSLR quality imagery.”

That still doesn't tell us much, but Sony, which makes cameras for the iPhone, has just announced a new 21MP stacked CMOS sensor, the highlights of which are 192 point phase detection autofocus, which makes it easier to stay focused on fast moving objects, and HDR for high-resolution images and 4K videos.
