Comparison: iPhone 4S Vs. Canon EOS 5D MKII 1080P video

Since the release of the iPhone 4S there has been a number of tests done to compare it to rival handsets, such as performance, toughness and also the quality of the camera. However, we thought that the camera side of things needed to be explored more, not with taking stills but 1080P video. Now the usual test would be to look at other smartphones, but that’s not original enough, but a comparison with the Canon EOS 5D MKII SLR is.

It’s a shame that one of the best features on the new iPhone is the camera, as we were hoping for so much more, such as a design change and improved battery. However, we will have to wait for the iPhone 5 to improve on the design, and as for the battery, well just read this to get you up to speed with the issues.

There are a number of ways how you can test the camera or video on the 4S, but we have to say that this is an inventive one. There have been major advancements to the camera, such as increasing from 5 to 8-megapixles, improved lens and also 1080P video recording. To further increase quality Apple decided to put in image stabilization software, which should put an end to shaky-cam — well almost.

Redmond Pie wanted to know just how good the video camera was, so an elaborate test was in order. You can see the results for yourself in the video below, and the results are shocking. The camera in the iPhone 4S performs very well, and what makes it even better is that you are more likely to capture those golden moments more than you can with the Canon EOS 5D MKII, because you will have it with you most times.
