The iPhone camera: no flash, no zoom, poor in low lighting conditions…


Ouch. If you wondered why there wasn’t much information about the iPhone’s built-in camera floating about in recent weeks, that’s because… well, there wasn’t very much to say about it.

According to Your Mac Life’s Shawn King, the iPhone camera has no zoom function, no flash, and it performs poorly in low-light conditions. Apple would probably argue that the iPhone is a music handset, rather than being focused on photography. But that doesn’t mean it has to have a basic camera module.
