Macro Shot Images Compared from Every iPhone Generation [PICS]

If you are wondering about how macro images fare from every single generation of the iPhone, Tap Tap Tap has released a comparison of images taken using Camera+. Lisa Bettany describes how the comparison was conducted:

Photo comparisons from all iPhone version cameras taken with Camera+ (First generation iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, the iPhone 4S, and the new iPhone 5) in three situations showing both the original photo and a detailed view (zoomed to 100%) of each photo:

  1. A well lit macro setting to test detail and quality of the cameras
  2. A skyline shot to test sharpness and saturation
  3. A candle lit low light macro photo to test noise.

It’s clear from the detail shots that the iPhone 5 produces sharper photos with more accurate white balance, contrast, and saturation.

Check out the image below that compares images from every single iPhone:

Just yesterday Camera+ released an update to their popular photography app, introducing an iPad version and new iCloud sync for Lightbox photos. You can check out the rest of the comparison here, which shows the iPhone 5 has better macro abilities in both normal and low light situations.
