Aesthetics over story telling, is more like it, as most of times "truth" uses more dimensions than the two used in a photograph,,,,,,,,

Petrogel: what about comparison iphone vs Nokia 808 pureview, human vanity versus nominal big pixel count ?
i don't like cameras attached on-to phones costing more than 200 euros i consider it as a rip off, specially when they deliver image quality like this

Petrogel: You are reviewing everything why not laptop cameras or even borescope cameras !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
it's more like drifting than madness (if you like madness ii's ok with me ) (borescopes are endoscopes, endoscopes is a term used for the human body) (i'm sure you have your reasons to prefer the term endoscope) !!!!!
You are reviewing everything why not laptop cameras or even borescope cameras !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This review thing is getting ridiculous !!!!!! in short while you'll be reviewing photo cameras belts !!!!!
madeinlisboa: Oh my god! Even Manfrotto is going lame!
Vanity ..... costs !!!
It is good not to mix Apple users and iPhone or iPad users these are 2 different group of people.
focalphotography: The main reason any site including most of the UK news media websites do stories about the iPhone is for Google ranking and search engine optimization.
Daily mail is a good example of this doing maybe 2-3 stories about iPhone every week !!
That is maybe because the personal vanity of social showing off on social networks. There are more photographers off flickr, than in !!!!!!There are not all the non_iPhone_owners , ..... Apple haters, personally i use a mac book but i would never ever buy an iPhone
Bill Bentley: This kit along with one of those tent pole, compact style, tripods in a small bag under the front seat or in the trunk would make for a decent travel solution. I'd buy this if I could afford the carrying costs of owning an iPhone5. Alas, I'll have to make due with my Samsung WB150F for now as a compact travel camera.
Well i agree with "pro photo 2011" the contract trick to buy a device costs you a lot more, specially when buying iPhones, Windows Phones or Galaxy S 3s. A 100euro "smart"phone can do what an iPhone can do and a lot more ( 3G Video call not depending on wifi network, and bluetooth files exchanging, something iPhone 4 and 4s could NOT do ), and with 200euros more, you can have a better image quality than these , a lot people claims that with your iPhone you don't have to carry a snapshot camera, well if you have to carry these things with you a camera is a lot lighter WITH build in flash .... @RedMngroveI own an android (not worth to mention it) "stupid"phone, I've bought it for 100 euros 2 years ago, my contract was 75 euros for 4hours free calls plus some extra megabytes for free, last year i did not renew the contract i'me a "free" client last month i've paid 28 euros for the same time and about the same megabytes . I can do 3G video-calls and bluetooth file exchange
Except the personal vanity and the social show-off this device offers a minimal design which is canceled (according to my taste ) by this vulgar gadgets. I think an iToothbrush gadget would be more useful for this ....... "smart"phone !!!!!!!
UponQuai: Hitler's reactionhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkDz4wMI9J8
LOL ....... Use android !!!!!!!!!!!
Petrogel: Unfortunately iPhone's, Samsung's S III or Nokia's PureView image quality CAN NOT justify the HIGH PRICES these products are sold, of course a photo is up to the photographers perspective, but i would agree with madeinlisboa these are toys, expensive toys for what they offer !!!!
ROFLOL ....."WE SMART"..... It's good to tell yourself how SMART you are ..... at the end of the day you might believe it ...... LOL 130...... LOL not even 130 grams of brain ( if you know how much 130 grams are
peevee1: "To put these differences into perspective, before the release of the iPhone 5, we asked 50 non-photographers to compare 15" prints of a similar image from each of these cameras, to work out which were the cheap ones and which the expensive ones and which was the iPhone 4s. 15" prints aren't a stringent photographic test, but they're bigger than most iPhone photos will ever be printed. Over half of people placed the iPhone 4s above the Nikon D3. The picture quality from the iPhones is 'good enough' for most people."
This is the important finding. When light is good and your subject is not moving fast, don't fool yourself that you need an expensive equipment.
Unfortunately (for the rest of us) those free 10g "or so" are making a lot of fuzz on Photo sites
Useless device, for useless files money can buy
aris14: Ι wish it won't be famous after a crime act...
That's when i think it will be (famous) !!!!
You can do ALL THAT with a $150 phone without a 2 or 3 or 4 year contract ("buying" a phone with a contract is much more expensive than buying the same device unlocked) and as wiliamJ says above smartphones are tools for non-smart people !!!. I've seen printed photos from Nokia's 808pureview (which by the way has a lot better camera than this iPhone is equipped ) and they are not better compared to the prints of my 2 year old and 150euros Compact camera !!!!!
