iPhone 4S Rapidly Moving Up on Flickr

It’s always fun to see how technology changes over time. On Flickr the iPhone has been the top overall camera since mid-2009 when the iPhone 3G appeared.

iPhone 4 is top camera on Flickr

Time has moved forward along with the generations of the iPhone. Right now the iPhone 4 leads the pack as the top overall camera, but the iPhone 4S is rapidly moving up the list and has now become the #2.

iPhone 4S becomes #2 smartphone on Flickr

With the holidays almost here I’m guessing a lot of people will be getting a nice new iPhone in the new few months, and I’m willing to bet the iPhone 4S will become the top camera on Flickr in January.

Adobe Carousel Launches

Adobe Carousel has launched. The service involves subscription costs, but you can have a 30 day trial to start out. I’ll be giving it a try in the near future just to see what it is like (probably not until I finish NYC Marathon – I’m starting to get rather excited!).

Apple iPhone 4s

Apple announced the new iPhone 4s today. I’m really looking forward to the new camera and the iCloud for easy syncing of photos between my iPhone and iPad.

iPhone 4s Camera App

iPhone 4s Camera App

I’ll be pre-ordering on October 7th. I would have done it today, but it doesn’t start until the 7th. 🙂

Several features about the new camera and app:

Mega megapixels.

The iPhone 4S camera gives you 8 megapixels — that’s 60 percent more pixels than the camera on iPhone 4. They’re engineered with a higher, full-well capacity to collect even more light. With more megapixels and more light, you’ll see a dramatic difference in the resolution and details of your images. So your photos look stunning everywhere you show them off — on your iPhone, your computer, or your HDTV. And they’re rendered pixel for pixel in prints as large as 8×10.

All-new optics make all the difference.

Great photography isn’t just about megapixels — it’s about light, too. The all-new, advanced optics in this camera work together to make sure whatever light you have gives you the best image possible. The custom lens uses five precision elements to shape incoming light, which makes the entire image sharper. The larger f/2.4 aperture lets in more light, so photos look brighter and better. And the advanced hybrid infrared filter keeps out harmful IR light, so you’ll see more accurate and uniform colors.

Edit photos right on iPhone.

It’s not just an amazing camera. It’s an on-the-fly editing studio. Crop, rotate, enhance, and remove red-eye right on iPhone — without the help of photo editing software on a computer. Then organize your shots into albums, so you know where your favorites are when you want to show them off.
