Friday, October 14th, I was one of the 4 million people to get their hands on the iPhone 4S. I upgraded from the iPhone 4 mainly for the upgraded camera, but was it worth it? Yes and No, I do notice a significant difference in image quality on the 4S, but it wasn’t as much as I’d like to have seen. Why Apple didn’t give more options is beyond me. A macro mode or even give me the ability to set my exposure, iso or aperture would have been nice. Who knows, maybe there will be an app for that one day. Overall the camera does work a lot better in lower light conditions and is quite a bit sharper, as far as replacing your current point and shoot I’m not quite sure, however I went to take pictures of a condo I’m in the process of buying and only brought my iPhone 4S, when I tell people that I used my iPhone to take the shots, they’re pretty shocked at how well they turned out. I’ll add more photos as I get more a chance to use it more.
I know some of the videos I’ve seen on Vimeo are pretty amazing. I’ll do a video test later on and post my results.
