Two weeks ago I upgraded to the iPhone 4. While I liked my 3G just fine this new phone is an incredible improvement. One of my favorite new improvements is the camera. I wouldn’t have thought it would been that big of an upgrade but I’ve been very happy with the results. However, it is a point and shoot and carries those limitations.
The picture quality has been really clear and the contrast has been noticeably improved. The auto exposure is quicker and touch to focus/expose responds faster. I am amazed how well it handles extreme close ups. Seems to focus around 3 inches. The flash is interesting, not bad, but interesting. It’s an ultra bright LED that mostly works. The LED makes more sense when you start shooting video. Which I will go over later.
Over all I’m very happy with it. I no longer feel the need to lug around my big camera for trips to the zoo with the kids anymore.
