    OK, it's still a phone camera, and it's very limited by it's tiny lens and short focal length... but all things considered, it's not that bad. There's quite a few modes like macro, portrait, sunset, landscape, and image stabilization and they really help get the most out of each shot. There's a nice movable focus point you touch and drag where you want... something nice for macros. Video is at 720p and again, for a phone camera, better than expected. Will it replace my Canon T1i? Not a chance. Will it be something I can use on many more occasions than I'd ever used a phone camera before? Absolutely.

    And here's a quick sample of the video. Make sure to select 720p.

    If you're going to get one, pay attention to what the different modes are doing to the white balance. The automatic mode tends to go a little cold. The sunset mode a little warm.

    Here's another macro.

    Very impressed with that first shot and the video.

    I have been hating my Iphone 3G lately, not sure it's worth it to waste my 2 year upgrade on a 3GS, and won't go near an Iphone 4....... Maybe I'll do the unthinkable an jump ship to the Droid.

    I have a droid, but it's not the new new one. It takes good pictures, too, but I don't know the specs on it.

    OMG there are so many! They even have a HDR program for iphone! It's free and there's paid versions too. But just go to app store and type "photography" and you'll see tons.

    I've posted pic of iphone4 before but here's a small video I made a month ago, with the iMovie. It's pretty good program for $4.99 if you ask me!
