I've finished taking photos for eBay auctions and thought it might be interesting to take near identical photos using the original 4GB iPhone2G and the new iPhone5. The setup remains the same for both iPhones and there was no editing other than cropping and sizing each photo using iPhoto. Here is the iPhone2G setup: This photo was taken from approximately eight inches from the coin. No matter what, I couldn't get the iPhone to focus. Here is the result: Even from a little over two feet back the photo is fuzzy: Here is the iPhone5 set up: This photo was also taken about eight inches from the coin. The coin focused without any effort. Here is the result: From a little over two feet back the photo is pretty focused (room for improvement): I'm not trying to really prove anything, just thought it was cool how much the camera, for closeups, has improved. Where it used to be really useless now the photos are mostly clear. The white balance could use tweaking, but overall the last five years has seen remarkable upgrades (obviously).
