The Apple iPhone 4S might not have been the update everyone was expecting, but it certainly delivers well on the camera front. Not only is this the fastest camera around, but it also promises to do some of the most impressive photos you have seen.
As Tim Cook boldly claimed "To many customers this will be the best still camera they've ever owned and the best video camera they've ever owned.". Now to say such things for a camera that fits in a 9.3mm body is probably pushing it, but the 8 megapixel snapper with bright f/2.4 lens certainly sounds promising. Even more so, knowing that the iPhone 4 was one of the best 5 megapixel shooters around.
Still, Apple are ready to put their latest smartphone where its mouth is and has released a bunch of camera samples captured with the iPhone 4S on its website. We don't know how serious a photographic effort those shots took, but they certainly look stunning.
Of course, it almost certain that you won't be able to produce similarly stunning shots when/if you obtain your iPhone 4S, but it's good to know that the potential is there. So even if you only utilize a small portion of it, you should still end up with pretty decent shots.
I too have Iphone 4s but the picture quality is not so good as it is shown in the sample pictures here.
Wow, Apple just invented putting a camera lens on a phone! Oh wait...welcome to Samsung circa 2009: http://www.slashgear.com/samsung-amoled-12m-sch-w880-12mp-cameraphone-official-2958344/ Did Samsung patent putting a lens on a phone? ...
The laws of physics says you're wrong. Within a same generation, the bigger sensor makes superior images 10/10 times. Also - the sample images say you're wrong. Keep dreaming, Sony and Apple hopefuls.
