iPhone 4S Video And Photo Quality Test

While most iPhone 4S reviews are concentrated on the Siri feature, I’ve been having a blast testing out the awesome camera on Apple’s latest wonder phone. The 8 Megapixel, five element lens found on the new iPhone 4S takes such great photos and videos, you might not need to carry a dedicated digicam with you anymore.

The video below features Sally playing in the warm tub and was just shot out of the blue. That’s the cool thing about using an iPhone to do videos. Since you always have it with you, video become a spontaneous event. I will have more iPhone video samples soon. Make sure you want it in HD.

Here are a few photo samples. The iPhone 4S has by far the best camera out of any cell phones in the market. The quality is truly amazing. Click on the first image to see the full res photo.
