Apple today unveiled the new improvements in the iPhone 5’s camera. The iPhone 5 features multiple enhancements in what Apple is calling the “iSight” department. The device’s 8 megapixel sensor will shoot pics at a 3264×2448 resolution, and the camera includes a Hybrid IR filter and next-gen ISP technology. Schiller noted that the camera itself is 25% smaller.
In iOS 6 the Camera app will include a Panorama mode for taking large landscape pictures, and Shared Photo Streams will give users the ability to effortlessly share pics with friends and family on the go.
For video, the iPhone 5 shoots rear-facing 1080p video like the iPhone 4S. The front-facing camera now shoots 720p video for FaceTime, which is a nice improvement.
