Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple, has passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer. It’s not often we get to witness someone who literally changes the way millions of people around the world live. While he is probably most renown for launching the Apple line of computers, his other contributions include founding the animation studio Pixar, as well creating highly popular devices such as the iPod, iPhone, iPad and Macbook Air. Steve Jobs, you will be missed.
Yesterday, Apple announced their newest iPhone, the 4S. While many people were hoping for more significant upgrades, the one area that was greatly improved upon was the camera. The new iPhone 4S boasts a staggering 8 Megapixel camera. I say staggering because we are talking about a cell phone. That’s only 4 megapixels short of my full frame digital SLR! The all new custom lens has five precision elements which allows for a sharper image. Combine that with the ultra wide f/2.4 aperture, and you have one seriously versatile lens. The iPhone 4S also records full 1080p HD video, and comes with real time video image stabilization. I’m not saying this phone is going to replace your professional grade camera, but it’s certainly bridging the gap in terms of it’s capabilities. The iPhone 4S is available October 14. Pricing starts at $199 for the 16GB model.
