iPhone 4S

Apple just introduced the new iPhone 4S, the newly updated version of its popular smart phone.  As a photographer who uses the iPhone regularly as a camera (I've used all 4 previous models), I am happy to announce an upgrade on the camera of our favorite pocket/everyday phone-camera.

The camera on the iPhone 4S was upgraded to 8 megapixels from the 5 megapixels of the iPhone 4 (rear/main camera).  The lens was also improved to provide sharper and crisper images, with a slightly faster aperture of f/2.4 from the previous f/2.8.  The video capability was also increased from 30 fps 720p HD to 30 fps 1080p HD.

The other notable upgrades are the faster processor, new OS 5, better antenna (reception), higher capacity (new 64 GB model) and Apple's new talking voice activated task software, called Siri.

The iPhone 4S will be available in the US, Canada, Japan and most of Western Europe by October 14 and to 22 other countries by the end of October.
