Has anyone else noticed camera improvements?

The display seems to have a higher fps and panorama mode is crazy good. Cant believe how well it paints the image together instantly as you're turning! Better AF too?

Camera+ appears to still take photos but when you go to view the image for editing, it disappears.

It takes pictures crazy fast. I took my son to the park and tested it and they turned out awesome. No animation of the pictures going to the folder though.

Release notes state that iOS 7 can shoot up to 60 fps, vs only 30 in iOS 6. Not sure if the camera in the iPhone 5 has that capability or not, but that could be what you are seeing.

Yeah, I saw that. The iPhone 5S must can do 60.

I'm voting that the 5 will do 60 FPS. I read that iOS 5 would allow apps to do 60 then iOS 6 only allows 30.

Indeed. Nevertheless, that "720p60" mode, which was only available on the 4S and no other iOS5-capable models (no iPad3, for example, let alone older models), only recorded video at 360 vertical resolution. Hopefully the 60p support in iOS7 won't be the same cr@ppy implementation but true at least 720p60 if not 1080p60 on all 1080p-capable models (4S, 5 and hopefully even all the iPads).

I've posted tons of stuff on this question, along with resolution chart shots, at https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/1533985/

Does it still do the stupid shutter close animation? Seems like that really slows down trying to rapid fire photos.

Is there finally a way to disable the shutter sound without muting the phone? I hate having to remember to mute the phone whenever I want to take a photo without disturbing people, then unmute it after.

No more shutter animation. In fact, there's actually very little animation at all when you snap a shot now.

The 5 can shoot 60fps. I've tested.

I took a handful of pics of my kid and dog yesterday, and I just kept tapping the shutter, and pictures were taken each time. I shot like 5 or 6 fps manually. I couldn't believe it.

If you don't want to disturb people wouldn't you want to keep you phone muted? It does still make the shutter noise and I couldn't find any way to turn it off..
