During Apple’s media event last week, Phil Schiller and Scott Forstall really made a point of explaining how great the 8 megapixel camera on the iPhone 4S is. But it wasn’t just the inclusion of a larger 8 megapixel sensor that Apple was bragging about.
Apple rightfully explained that there’s more to taking great pictures than megapixels, and they touted the advanced optics they put into the iPhone 4S, including a custom lens, a larger f/2.4 aperture and improved auto white balance. Some other feature Apple engineered into the camera include better color accuracy, the addition of face detection, and reduced motion blur. To show off the brilliant photos now possible with the iPhone 4S, Apple put up a few untouched examples you can check out here.
That’s all well and good, but you know Apple took those shots under optimal conditions. So below we present to you what appears to be the first photo taken with the iPhone 4S in the wild, courtesy of Appvv which somehow managed to obtain a pre-release iPhone 4S.
Yep, that’s ole’ Georgey there. Click on the photo for a larger view. Looks quite impressive.
Lastly, you might remember that an Apple employee took a photo of Sushi with his iPhone 4S a few weeks ago and mistakenly posted it to Twitter.
