I got away with using an iPhone to shoot professional photos


I have a confession to make. I used an iPhone in place of a proper camera for one of my assignments and nobody noticed. I don’t feel bad about it, but thought you should know.

For the first time in my career as a paid lover of technology, this October I attended a press event without a dedicated camera. It was theOnePlus X launch event in London and, since my trusty colleague Nick Statt had already seen and photographed the phone, I felt safe not bringing a DSLR or even a more compact mirrorless camera along. But, as so often happens, I was captivated by the shiny, alluring, glossy exterior of the delightfully cute OnePlus X and I felt the urge to capture at least some of its appeal. So out came the iPhone 6S Plus. At first I figured I’d only take a couple of shots in preparation for some humorous tweet, but when I looked at the images, I realised that they were decent enough to put on The Verge.
