DPReview Editor Barnaby Britton has spent the weekend shooting with Apple's new iPhone 5s, testing the phone's capabilities under a variety of lighting conditions. 

Britton made some of the same observations that other reviews have pointed out: the camera is very quick, improvements to the flash do offer more accurate final results and the panoramas are incredibly impressive. He also noticed that those filtered photos snapped with the updated Camera app only appear as such within the phone: that is, your retro shot of your friend using the Noir filter will look black & white on your phone but when you transfer the files directly from phone to computer, only the original unfiltered image appears.

There are 60 images in our iPhone 5s samples gallery. Please do not reproduce any of these images on a website or any newsletter / magazine without prior permission (see our copyright page). We make the originals available for private users to download to their own machines for personal examination or printing (in conjunction with this review), we do so in good faith, please don't abuse it.
