This is a photo taken with the new iPhone 4's backlit sensor camera. Click to see it at its original 2592x1936 resolution. Apple claims the photo is not retouched, so what can we learn from it?
This is the EXIF data:
Aperture: 2.97 Colour space: Uncalibrated Date and time: 2010/05/07 15:14 Exposure: Auto exposure Exposure time: 1/887 Flash: Flash did not fire, auto mode FNumber: 2.8 Focal length: 3.85 ISO speed rating: 80 Metering mode: Spot Sharpness: Hard White balance: Auto
The performance under obviously optimal light is very good. The processing leans a bit to over-saturation and over-exposure, which is not a bad thing. Nikon goes for a similar image processing treatment in their cameras.
However, keep in mind that this image doesn't confirm Apple's claims about higher ISO and better performance under low light conditions, which is supposed to be a lot better thanks to the bigger backlit sensor. We will have to wait to see this in our review. [Thanks to our friend Angel Jimenez]
