iPhone X vs 6s vs Samsung S7 vs Mirrorless G85 | Camera Showdown

CAN YOU TELL THE DIFFERENCE?… Prepare yourself for the ULTIMATE camera showdown, comparing the super-camera of the iPhone X against its older brother the 6s, its rival the Samsung S7 and the best value professional camera the Panasonic G85 to help you decide on if it’s really worth the huge price hike.


All videos were shot at their camera’s highest settings.

The audio on the iPhone X and iPhone 6s was boosted in post.


iPhone X

Back Camera - 4k 60fs

Front Camera - 1080p 30 fps

HEVC encoding - resulting in around half the size of traditional mp4

iPhone 6s

Back Camera - 4k 30fps

Front Camera - 720p 30fps

Cheap as chips

Samsung S7

Back Camera - 4k 30fps

Front Camera - 1440p 30fps

Excellent quality, but poor colour profile

Panasonic G85

Using wide angle adapter and Ride VideoMicro for audio

Excellent quality

Weighs half a kilo!


The quality of the iPhone X was very good, both the front and back camera has improved over the iPhone 6s, and the wider angle on the front camera is a must. That being said, I couldn’t really tell the difference between the front cameras in good lighting. Also, what surprised me the most is that even though the camera now features image stabilisation, the iPhone X and 6s were both very shaky when compared to the Samsung and Panasonic.

Quick reasons why we got the G85
4k video support at 30 fps - not 60 fps like the GH5, but 3 times cheaper than the GH5 and 200g lighter.
Unlimited recording - doesn’t overheat like Sony cameras.
Articulating screen - very useful for framing the shot.
Microphone jack - to be able to use external microphones to get good quality recordings.
Battery life - 4k non-stop recordings go for 1.5 hours on a single charge, unlike Sony cameras who tend to max out at 30 mins.
Image stabilization - not as good as a gimble, but very very good for hand held shots.
Weather sealed - can film in the rain unlike the G7.

G7 is half the price and can do 4k video recording. It just lacks image stabilization, weather sealing and has a slightly narrower kit lens.
Sony a6500 has amazing out of the box autofocus, but note has poor battery lift, overheats and is twice as expensive.
GH5 is a beast that can do 4k 60fps, but note it’s 3 times more expensive and you’ll need a more expensive SD card to record on.
G80 (The European version) limits recording time to 30 minutes per session. G81 and G85 (International versions) don’t limit recording at all.
