Tokyo Auto Salon 2017: Stance & Stilettos by iPhone 7 (VIDEO)

Tokyo Auto Salon 2017: Stance & Stilettos by iPhone 7 (VIDEO)

Another year begins, and another 324,400 souls descend on Makuhari Messe in Chiba for the 2017 Tokyo Auto Salon  

As in years past, the biggest tuning houses and parts manufacturers and mechanic shops had their best demo vehicles on the floor, sporting their latest products. There were also the ever-present and ever beautiful...companions, all of which provided a breathtaking buffet for petrolheads and ornithologists clamoring for their eyeful.

As always, I went through - both to get ideas for my third Nissan Silvia S14 in a row, and to capture an eyefull to share with the world. Unlike years past, however, I was without my camera which was at Sony in Akihabara for repairs. So, I bit the bullet and decided to see if the claims that Apple makes, tech sites repeat, and consumers take at face value, are true.

Years and Years of Tokyo Auto Salon Coverage  

The Question for 2017:  

Is the camera in the new iPhone 7 Plus really as good as a real camera? Simple answer: NO...but, it isn’t half bad either, and TAS 2017 was a good place to push it. Enough chatter - take a look for yourselves!  

Editor’s Note:
Mr. Moodley shot in 4K UHD on the Apple iPhone 7 Plus, using the Mavis pro video app. He’ll complain and moan all day long about how the quality isn’t all that - and in a broader video context, in ain’t - but let’s not lose track of the fact that the exceedingly lovely video below was shot with a GODDAMN MOBILE PHONE! Holy crap.

Very Big Game Show
If you haven't been to Makuhari Messe before, know that 'convention center' doesn't quite do it justice. No, 'stadium' is a closer approximation of the venue's size and footprint on the northeastern edge of Tokyo Bay [MAP], part of the Tokyo Metro Area, but actually in Chiba Prefecture (not far from from Tokyo Disney Land).

The Hikaru Skirt, a Fashion Statement that Demands Yet Defies Explanation.
One of the great things about living in Japan is knowing that there are a neverending string of things that you’ll never fully understand. The Hikaru Skirt (“hikaru” just means “shining”) is a pretty good example thereof. But as goofy as these might be, they do catch (and keep) the eye!
