An 8-Megapixel Photo from the iPhone 4S

Click for full resolution

Following the posting of a hands-on video of the iPhone 4S, AppVV has also apparently posted the first consumer photo taken with an iPhone 4S. The photo above was taken with an iPhone 4S and measures in at 3264 x 2448 pixels.

EXIF data is quite easy to manipulate and the image has taken a pass through Photoshop in order to add the watermark, but given the existence of the hands-on video, the photo is likely authentic.

As part of its promotional materials for the iPhone 4S posted following last week's media event, Apple included full-resolution sample photos, but the new image from AppVV offers an example of the quality of photos users can expect simply from snapping a quick photo. And last month, a photo apparently taken by an Apple engineer using an iPhone 4S briefly appeared on Flickr, with the official specs for the iPhone 4S camera announced last week all but confirming that the photo was indeed taken by the device.

You's PEOPLE LIKE YOU who make these forums so hostile and negative at times.

There's nothing more disgusting than disrespectful attitudes like yours.

Its what you would expect for a 2011 phone that costs as much as it does, nothing special.

I disagree. I've never seen a photo from a $200 (or even $300 for that matter) Android phone with photos that look this good. Outdoor shots, yes, but indoor, no.

8MP will make no difference to the image quality other than the files will be bigger and will allow you to blow them up to the size of roughly A4. The real difference will be the now, F2.4 aperture. Low light photos will be less noisy and of higher quality. This is really isn't a key selling point for the 4S. In my eyes, the key selling point is Siri, even then, they're pushing it.

And you've contributed so much.

Alright, iMoney. Take a photo and print. There's an App for that and you can finance all your Apple purchases, not to mention exotic cars and stuff.

It's okay, but the Nexus Prime will be better: It will take a picture of a $1 dollar bill and turn it into a twenty!
