“Beta versions of Apple’s iPhone 3.0 software are consistently producing clearer, more detailed photos when running on the same iPhone 3G hardware as the latest public release of the software, new tests show,” AppleInsider reports.
“They claim that in most cases, the iPhone running 3.0 produced photos with noticeably better quality and clarity than the iPhone running 2.2.1. A pair of comparison photos exemplifying their findings can be seen below,” AppleInsider reports.
“Intrigued, Gizmodo followed up with a brief test of its own in a dark lighting scenario — one of the iPhone camera’s weak spots — and similarly found the iPhone running 3.0 to have produced a much clearer snapshot with better detail in dark areas of the scene,” AppleInsider reports.
“If Apple is indeed making improvements to the iPhone’s camera app, those changes should benefit users of both the original iPhone and iPhone 3G, both of which sport a 2.0 megapixel digital camera,” AppleInsider reports.
