Despite the battery / software problems I've been having with my iPhone 4S, I have to say that the camera is quite nifty. Here are some of the photos I've taken over the past 6 weeks.

Durham Cathedral and the River Wear








St Mary's Lighthouse in Whitley Bay





Castlefield in Manchester

Those are really good quality. At last, a phone camera that takes a decent pic.

My HTC takes pix that are... mediocre, lacklustre, uninspiring, adequate.... have never owned a phone yet that took a good pic but those pix from the 4S are very good indeed :)

Nice pix, Bex, i'd agree that the iP4S does take a decent pic.

You should try 360 Panorama, thats a fun app for photo taking. :)

I used to have a Sony Ericsson K800i which had quite a nice camera compared with other camera phones at the time.

My only complaint of the iPhone 4S camera would be that the flash isn't great. Pictures taken at night look a bit rubbish which is a shame.

Still, it's nice to have a good camera on my phone for when we're out and about - I'm not in the habit of bringing an actual camera around with me all the time!

I'm going to look into that app V_R :)

In addition to what i said earlier about how good the iP4S camera is, i must confess the camera on the Galaxy S2 is better. It easily the best camera i've seen on a phone so far.

That and the bigger screen is the two things i feel the iP4S is missing. It needs a bigger screen now....

Well done, those are nice shots considering how small those sensors are in phone cameras.

I love the photos Becky, they look really good. Those bridges actually look very "arty" don't they. Their shapes and your camera angles compliment each other to produce some very interesting shots, imho. I particularly liked your shadow pic too.

Tbh, I would never have guessed that these were all taken on a phone camera, all of them look very impressive. :nod: :thumb:

I came back and revisited your pictures. My favourite is the the arty bridge one where your shadow is visible in the lower right corner. It's a great shot and putting the human element in the picture gives it the sense of scale. Really very nice indeed! Thoughtful on your part.

Thanks! You can just about see the shadow of a jogger who was running past me over the bridge - she looked mortified that I was taking photos so I waited for her to go past!

Yeah, some people don't like being photographed. One always has to be on lookout for such folks. :)

Smashing pictures. Quality is very good. You might not be able to do all the clever stuff a posh camera can but you certainly can capture some enjoyable memories very easily.

Depends what you mean by 'proper' camera. The pictures taken with a phone posted here are easily as good and perhaps surpass many point-and-click cameras costing £50 or less. This is a step forward.

But of course if you're even semi-serious about taking photographs then purchase one of them new fangled digital cameras.

I agree that it's no substitute for a proper camera, but great for capturing those moments when you don't have one with you! :)

Well yes, have you seen the difference between the sensor in a phone and one in a camera......? :/

Camera phones are getting better but how can they possibly compete with a dedicated camera!?


P.S @Bex, Hows Instagram? Worth getting and signing up? :)

I am a firm believer it is the person behind the camera that makes the difference. I have seen pics taken with a £4.99 disposable camera that are a million times better than that of a camera costing £2000
