How Much the iPhone Camera Has Improved

When the first iPhone came out, the camera was an afterthought, only tossed in to feature match its competitors. Fast forward four years and it's an entirely different story, Apple has made it a point of emphasis and the camera in the iPhone 4S sh-sh-sh-shines.

But how much has it really improved? Lisa Bettany took the same picture with every iPhones (that's right, original, 3G, 3GS, 4, and 4S) to see the differences and PetaPixelstitched 'em together to show you how each new generation improved upon the previous model (aside from the original and 3G, that is). And it's a HUUUGE difference. Like seeing the world for the very first time again different. The 3GS was the first big jump in camera quality but then it just went up from there with the lovely 4 and the king of the hill, stupidly detailed 4S.

Wow. It's like opening up a 4 year old time capsule.

That's rather impressive, to be honest I really don't understood why it wasn't good in the first place. Or why we need so many iterations of the same thing.

I remember thinking at the time of the first iPhone how lacklustre the camera seemed, it's great to see how much it's improved. Like Phil this is tempting me to buy a new iPhone, I mean, how can the iPhone 5 improve on this already amazing photo quality? I doubt it can!
