    I'm interested in a 4S but want to see what the camera can do.

    Can anyone with the 4S please post photos taken with it?

    I'd like to see:
    (all handheld, without flash)
    - ambient light indoor photos
    - low light indoor photos
    - candlelit (like birthday cake)

    When you post, please indicate what app they were taken with. If you did any editing, please publish a "before and after".

    Thanks! :apple:

    Shows the limitation of the sensor, I think. Many CMOS sensors have that wavy effect when you move it. This one looks particularly bad, but I don't know if I'll ever wave it back like he did. Kinda made me sick.

    Thats the Rolling Shutter effect all CMOS sensors show .
    Simply avoid that by NOT panning quickly from left to right or remove it with iMovie's or Final Cit Pro X "Rolling Shutter removal function".

    Just a real quick shot taken of camcorder remote that was sat on my window ledge.

    Not a particularly interesting image, but it shows good detail on parts that are in focus (The F2.4 lens means it can have a relatively small depth of field, hence the part furthest away is blurred)

    The most impressive thing i have noticed so far is color and white balance accurately, it's really good - rarely falters.

    The remotes about 7cm long, it's tiny, it doesn't look dusty in real life when its not blown up on a huge screen :p

    People with iPhone 4S... Can you change the recording from 1080p to 720p in a setting? Can you change the resolution of the photos?

    Nope. Nope. No option to turn off Image Stabilisation either.

    Atleast, i can't find these settings anyway.

    Kind of. But then, i would never not want to record at 1080p or less than 8mp. The only thing i would want to do is turn off image stabilistation, if it sucks anyway. I am uploading a video to youtube now, just of me getting the food to feed the guinea pigs in the garden :D

    edit:

    Video is uploaded. Note that the iPhone uploaded a compressed version (27mb at 720p). I just plugged the iphone into my computer, the actual file is 203mb @ 1080p.

    It looks awful on youtube. The uncompressed 203mb file @ 1080p looks MUCH better. It's a rubbish video for quality, i was more interested in the image stabilisation. It actually seems to work quite well, a few side affects, but overall not to bad. I'll upload a more steady shot in a bit.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TC7oVnC9W5I <- Deleted, very poor representation. Better video coming in a bit.

    Just tested, ~176mb.

    That's not dust, that's skin flakes.

    Great stabilization - imagine this video recorded with the iPhone 4. You'd get headache :).

    Dust in buildings is made of skin cells, hair, fibers etc. So yes it is dust, made of skin flakes. This is relevant how ?

    Low light shot. iPhone 4S makes the image look quite a lot brighter than it really is, it makes relatively low light shots look asif they were well exposed, it looks quite nice - but it brings quite a bit of noise with it.

    I've quickly edited the file on photobuckets editor to make it closer to the brightness of what it really looked like in real life:

    Here is a much better video 1080p video uploaded from my PC, i kept having to tap to focus because it obviously didnt know to keep focus on the small branches etc.
