Behold! What you’re looking at below may very well be the first public photo ever taken with the iPhone 5’s 8-megapixel camera. Discovered by PocketNow, the photo claims to have been taken by an iPhone 4 but the rest of the EXIF data suggests otherwise.
Although the image has been cropped to 2235×2291 (5.12 megapixels), the original picture was a much larger 3264×2448 — or just shy of eight megapixels. What’s more, the lens was recorded as a 4.3mm f/2.4, which is closer to that of a point-and-shoot than the iPhone 4’s actual 3.85mm f/2.8.
This shot was supposedly taken by an Apple engineer while eating lunch at work. Here is the original photo from Flickr which was, surprise surprise, uploaded by Anton D’Auria who is a software engineer at Apple who works on Safari and WebKit for iOS.
Now that sure looks like some tasty Sushi!
