    What resolution will the iPhone 4's camera take for photos? I'm guessing its 720 x 1200 but thats probally just the video.

    Thanks.

    Higher then that. :rolleyes:

    Not a 100% sure , but my Nikon d40 at 6.1 megapixels can produce 3,008 × 2,000 (6.1 effective megapixels).

    lol. no its more like 2580 X 2048

    5 megapixels = 5 million pixels. 2580 X 2048 = 5,283,840

    It's 2592 x 1936, as you can see from the sample photos on Apple's website, which is 5,018,112 pixels total.

    Strange aspect ratio, though. Who would'a thunk that 162:121 would be good proportions for a camera?

    More correctly it's the wrong aspect ratio. 1280x720 is 1.78 (aka 16x9) and 1920x720 is 2.67 which is wider that Panavision/Super 35 (2.35).

    I don't think your understanding what people are pointing out still.

    1280 x 720 = 720p
    the LARGER 1920 1080 is full HD

    by and by this has nothing to do with the fact that the iPhone will only output 720p lol

    it was more a joke of the resolution which seemed to fly over your head :p:p hehe

    EDIT: aspect raio would be 16:9 - 4:3 he was talking about resolution which I was too so you not only missed the joke but came back with wrong info lol :p:p:p

    But just to throw a wrench in the conversation... Panavision is actually 2.39:1 (late-era CinemaScope, now defunct, and some other 3-perf non-anamorphic formats are 2:35.1). The format is referred to as Panavision, though often, incorrectly called "Scope" in reference to CinemaScope (which was originally 2.55:1).

    Panavision doesn't use Super 35, btw. It uses standard 35mm. Super 35 is either full-frame 1.37:1 (Academy) and then matted to 1.85:1 (Widescreen, or "Flat") or sometimes a three-perf 2.39:1 negative is used... but it's not anamorphic or Panavision.

    :D
