The Best Camera is the One That You Have - the iPhone 4 Camera

After I got the iPhone 4, I immediately set out to try its built-in camera. It's a 5 megapixel stills camera and, most of the time, a 5-megapixel camera is all you need.


I was greatly impressed by the camera. There is a great amount of details in the photos. Just look at the moisture on the flowers and the leaves. I still have to try some print outs but the pictures look great in the computer. Oh, I'd like to say that, aside from cropping the photos, no other edits were made, not even to correct the white balance setting. The iPhone 4 camera is that good!




I tried to take some self-portraits, which I choose not to show in this post - you can check my self-portrait here - and I was nearly blinded by the built in flash - I will not do that again. Or maybe less. Or maybe only when necessary.




Anyway, one problem I had was sometimes it was difficult to set what the iPhone was focusing on. I tapped the flower on the picture below but the iPhone still focused on the building at the background. That befuddled me...




But all in all, I'm very happy with the iPhone 4 camera. The many apps available in the app store make it an even more interesting camera to have. And since I always have the iPhone with me then I always have a decent camera that I can pull out of my pocket at a moment's notice. The iPhone 4 is a very good alternative to my Canon Powershot G12.
