A Photographic Evidence Of How Much iPhone 4S Camera Has Improved [PHOTOS]

Share:

Over the past few years, one area that has been steadily improving in smartphones in the mobile camera technology. Back in 2007 when the original iPhone was launched, it was fitted with a camera which could barely shoot any decent shots with less megapixels, no auto-focus and no flash. Many people quoted it as “a joke” since many smartphones from market leaders of that era, Nokia and Sony Ericsson, had way better camera specs. Since then, Apple has been spec-boosting iPhone’s camera and today, iPhone 4S comes with an 8-megapixel shooter capable of 1080p video recording at 30fps. Not only this, it also sports a five-component lens that is much more sensitive to light than all its predecessors.

Photographer Lisa Bettany has an interesting post (via PetaPixel) over at Camera+ comparing the iPhone 4S camera to the previous iPhone models and a couple other cameras as well. It’s an interesting look at how much iPhone 4S camera has improved since the original iPhone.

    All they need to do is make mobile versions of FCP 7, Motion 4 and Photoshop CS5 and I won’t need my MBP to run my business 😀

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple is working on mobile versions of their pro apps.  It’s just a matter of time before these iDevices get fitted with quad-core cpu’s / gpu’s then they’ll be powerful enough to run these apps properly.

    Its not hard to improve when it starts out so crappy.  I think this comparison should start from iPhone4 onwards.  The original cameras suck ass compared to competition at first. 

    I also have to say the same for the front facing camera, VGA (WTF).  Lets see a new slide a few years down the road showing how the front camera improved too. 

    Apple’s version of slight improvement not making it better off the bat to make you (try to) replace your iPhone every year.

    Am I seeing more artifacts in the 4s photo than the 4. Perhaps due too the brighter shot??

    Wouldn’t be surprised if iPhone 5 ends up being the “mobile MacBook pro” 😛

    My 4S camera works well but it has a rattling sound when I tap it slightly. Im I alone on this?
