The iPhone 6 is surpisingly responsive and surprisingly good as a camera...my son has one, and I have been pretty impressed with the maturity of the camera and the basic Apple camera app and its functionality. You can also use third-party apps as well, like Camera Plus Pro, or Instagram, or VSCOcam, and so on. Fifteen years ago or thereabouts, a 1.3 megapixel Polaroid digital still camera was priced at $1,995 retail and was considered a high-tech,cutting edge, digital imaging tool. No video capabilities, just stills. If you're shy about buying into APple's product lines due to habit, fear of being called an Apply fanboy, disdain for Apple, or a bunch of PC-loving friends or workmates, or whatever, that's totally understandable, and there are surely some other fine, fine smartphone cameras. I've shot my son's phone, iPhone 6, and the display is excellent, and the shutter feels very responsive, and the time-lapse feature works splendidly and it a lot of fun too. I laugh at people who consider smart phones "not cameras"; they are in almost all respects, BETTER cameras than the cameras most people had from the period of about 1850 until 1970. They are better cine cameras than most people had from say maybe 1929 to the 1980's.
