As most people know the iPhone 5 was announced today. I will leave most of the specs to the tech sites, but I did want to talk about the camera. The iPhone 4S was the first possible point-n-shoot replacement in my opinion.
So did the iPhone 5 improve on the 4S camera? Yes, but nothing mind blowing. The iPhone 5′s camera features the same 8-megapixel sensor as the 4S and the same 1080p HD video capture capability. The iPhone 5 has a new, faster, processor so snapping photo’s promises to be a bit faster. There’s also a new dynamic low light mode and backside illumination. The iPhone camera like the 4S has an optimized five-element sapphire lens, ao hybrid IR filter, and an f/2.4 aperture.
The camera also gets a fancy new name. The camera is now called iSight. The front facing camera get’s a bump up, but that camera is not really for taking photos.
The iPhone 5 looks like a great phone, but there is nothing there to make me want to upgrade from the iPhone 4S.
