    Tried to take the same picture with a 3G, 3GS and iPhone 4. Thought some might be interested in the results. I see a huge improvement from the 3G to 3gs, but less so moving up to the 4. Biggest improvement I see in the 4 is looking at the leaves on the trees in the background

    3G



    3GS



    iPhone 4

    Your taking pictures in a well lit area, the i4's camera really shines in a darker lit area with OR without flash. Try the comparison there. You'll see stark differences.

    I can see a big difference in all 3 pics. With the 4's cam, notice the detail in the tree leaves vs the 3Gs and the 3G. And the overall color is more vivid.

    Yes the iPhone 4's camera shot looks to be much better then the 3GS, it looks as good as some point and shoots that are on the market now.

    I thought the video quality would be nicer,



    Is there a quality setting somewhere I'm missing?

    That video was uploaded over 3G (maybe wifi?) and compressed down to 360p. When uploaded from the computer the quality is quite different.

    That explains it, thanks for the tip. Much better:

    (I had to change the setting to 720p when viewing)

    You can also see the difference in the the way the sky touches the trees, The clouds are not as washed out on the 4

    The i4 definitely is an improvement over the 3gs. Just look at the creases in the flag. Also, take a close look at the large bushes in front of the neighbor's house across the street. You can see more definition and separation of the branches and leaves.
