When the iPhone first launched, it wasn’t renowned for having the best camera on the market. In fact, its 2MP snapper was quite far off the likes of the Nokia and Sony Ericsson devices around at the time. Since then, Apple has improve the camera system with every generation. And, although megapixel count hasn’t gone up with every new model, improvements have been made to the sensor and image processing. The difference between each new iPhone can be seen clearly in the comparison image put together by Reddit user Camerack.
It’s quite plain to see that the difference between the original and iPhone 5 is astronomical. Not only is the image much sharper and better at picking up the finer details, the color and contrast are also much more natural.
This obviously leads to the question: what’s Apple planning with the next iPhone? Will it stick with 8MP, or jump up to 12 for the iPhone 5S?
