Better Pictures and Mobile Video For The iPhone

By  |  3 Comments

image Something that has been around for quite a while in cell phones is now big news in the iPhone world.  The new 3.0 MP Camera and Video recording features in the iPhone are going to hit a sweet spot to iPhone users.  I personally find that the current camera isn’t half bad, under the right conditions it can be quite good IMO, but finding those ‘right conditions’ is sometimes a real pain.  This new camera with autofocus and white balance will help out tremendously.

There are some fancy features that make the upgrade to the iPhone stand out.

1.  Camera focus using the touch screen — the camera operator can use the touchscreen to ‘touch’ the preview on the screen to change where the camera is focused.  This might make for some very interesting photos.

2. On device video editing — it was mentioned during the event that with a touch of a finger you can edit the video.  This would be cool if you take a video, cut out a clip, send it via MMS or email to family and friends while on the go.

So while this should have come with the release of an earlier version of the iPhone, it’s going to be here soon and if it works as stated I’m sure the new features will be a welcome addition to the iPhone.

    Let’s see what the approaching summer brings with regard to the picture and film quality. I am curious as to which format the photos and videos wil be recorded. That could determine the overal quality.

    sad american cellphone market. In almost everything you are some much ahead of the rest of the world. But when it comes to cellphone I dont want change with you. 16month ago I got an Nokia N82 with real xenon flash 5mpx Carl Zeiss optic etc. I getting rid of it now because I has become old fashioned and is no good enough anymore.

    There’s nothing wrong with your pictures. They look just fine. I only noticed a slight loss of sharpness on the macro with the bee and the flower. But otherwise just fine.

    Carl Zeiss lenses are still quite good. I have 7 MPix still camera by Sony with Carl Zeiss Lens. I have used it often in the last 4 years, and it still shoots well.
