iPhone 4S Camera Comparison

Lisa Bettany (via John Gruber):

A photo comparison from all iPhone version cameras (first generation iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, the new iPhone 4S), a point-and-shoot camera, the Canon S95 ($500), and a professional dSLR, the Canon 5DMKII ($4000+) in two situations: 1. A macro setting to test detail and quality of the cameras; 2. A backlit skyline shot.

My main camera has been a Canon PowerShot S90. It’s been encouraging to see that in some cases, particularly those where HDR is beneficial, the iPhone 4S takes better photos. It’s also frustrating, because now I have to think about which to use.

Update (2011-11-07): The low-light follow-up.
