Using the iPhone 4S to Replace a Digital Camera

You Are Here

If you own an iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S and also own a digital camera, you probably don’t use the latter device unless you are a professional photographer. The power, versatility, and connectivity of the iPhone camera rivals that found on most digital cameras and is a perfect replacement for amateur photographers and people who just want to snap a picture of something they see.

The iPhone has gained such wide usage as a digital camera because users literally carry it around with them at all times. We usually drag out our traditional cameras for special occasions, but the iPhone is always there with us.

More people are sharing their photos on services such as Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr than they are through traditional photobook methods. In order to create a good social media photo gallery, you need a device that will intuitively post the pictures you take.

The new iPhone iOS 5 upgrade allows you to easily take a picture and gives the option to instantly send it to your Twitter profile. There are also free apps to Facebook, Flickr, and Tumblr that make sharing with friends instantaneous.

If you rushed out to get the iPhone 4S when it was released, you not only purchased an excellent communication device, you also bought a revamped digital camera.

According to Mashable, the new iPhone 4S uses an 8 megapixel camera, has an improved auto-white balance, and five lenses inside the optics system. You can also auto-detect up to ten different faces in a single shot.

The phone even allows you to shoot HD quality video that you can automatically upload to YouTube. Check out the following photo taken by iPhone 4S.

To keep things interesting for iPhone camera users, there are apps being developed every day in order for people to get the most out of their devices.

Unlike digital cameras, the iPhone keeps photography exciting and inserts the spices of variety into the mix. You can download the Camera+ app for increased proficiency and color management, Instagram for unique filters, and Hipstamatic for a completely retro feel to your photos.

Instead of purchasing a separate camera just to take photos with, you can use your iPhone for equal, if not better results. If you were to travel back ten years and say that television shows would rely on smartphone footage for their content, you would be laughed out of the building. Now you can turn on Comedy Central and watch the majority of Tosh.0 filmed from iPhones and other devices.
