Apple iPhone 4S Used to Capture Olympic Moments, and the Pictures are Awesome

August 4, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Snappers have gone to the extent of being palm held, of late. As we have been telling you, camera specs in the most modern smartphones are in fact rewriting the photography script.

In a jungle inhabited with high performance smartphone cameras, the Apple iPhone 4S camera is one awesome piece among the crowd. The Apple iPhone 4S camera is considered to be one of the better smartphone cameras currently available in the market today.

We have already seen a lot of photos and videos taken with it that could have fooled us into thinking that more professional equipment was used to capture such images.

The latest is that the iPhone 4S camera was good enough for journalist Dan Chung of The Guardian to use it in place of a DSLR to cover the ongoing London 2012 Olympic Games.

Deploying a pair of binoculars to double up as zoom lens, Chung has been using his iPhone to snap photos of the event. He edits them using the Snapseed photograph editing app before sharing them online.

One of the advantages of the iPhone 4S is that since it is always connected to the internet (assuming there is sufficient coverage), and sharing photos is only a matter of a few taps.

Granted that some of these photos could have been sharper/less noisy when captured with a DSLR camera, they certainly are impressive nonetheless and goes on to prove that sometimes it’s not the equipment that makes the photo, but the photographer himself.

Not convinced? Head here to check out Chung’s photos.
