Apple introduced the iPhone 5 to the world today, and also quietly released a group of pictures captured by the smartphone in California. With familiar specifics such as an 8-megapixel iSight rear camera, some people may want to see actual images shot by the highly anticipated smartphone to see what it brings to the table.
The iPhone 5 camera sports improved low-light performance, noise reduction, and 40 percent faster photo capture. During today's presentation in San Francisco, Apple marketing exec Phil Schiller additionally described a few other features in the iPhone 5's new camera, such as a sapphire crystal lens cover (for supposedly clearer pictures), hybrid infrared filter, five-element lens construction, and f/2.4 aperture capabilities.
This closeup iPhone 5 snapshot of a bee gathering pollen in a pink flower looks stunning in a reduced resolution. According to the EXIF data within the photo, this moment occurred on August 15 near the Lawn Bowling Green Park in Palo Alto, Calif.
