Apple reveals iPhone 5 … which means new "most popular" camera


When Apple release their new iPhone, it's a big deal for photography, because the iPhone is the most popular camera in the world … so let's take a look at the iPhone 5.

The 8-megapixel camera features the tap to focus autofocus we've seen before along with face detection and an LED flash but the camera now boasts 40 per cent faster photo capture.

There's also better low-light performance and improved noise reduction, with a spokesperson for Apple saying: "You can snap more shots with more detail and clarity than ever before."

There's also a new panorama feature which lets you capture everything from a family reunion group photo to a shot of the Grand Canyon, with one smooth motion.

You can shoot up to 240 degrees with the gyroscope, A6 chip and Camera app work together to create one seamless, high-resolution panorama up to 28 megapixels.
