Closeup on the iPhone 6 Plus Zoom

My iPhone 6 Plus zoom seems to be proving me wrong.

I always thought digital zoom was useless when taking a digital photo.

The flowers on this Crassula are tiny.

I was really surprised by the shot below of these miniature flowers, taken at maximum magnification of my iPhone 6 Plus zoom. The zoom is easy to use. You just pinch out with two fingers. The amount of zoom is shown on a slider as well as on the screen.

This phone does have the advantage of image stabilisation. Nevertheless, when taking an iPhone 6 Plus zoom shot, do hold the phone as steady as you can.

We used to say 'Seeing is believing'. Now it's more like 'Believing is seeing'. We see what we expect to see. Look again and who knows. Does it really match what's actually there? ...I've always been fascinated by how our minds work. As a writer and artist, I'm particularly interested in new research into how we perceive this extraordinary world we live in, where things are not always what they seem.
