Image samples from the iPhone 4's 5MP camera

Image samples from the iPhone 4's 5MP camera
One improved feature the iPhone 4 includes is a 5MP autofocus camera with flash on the back, with a VGA resolution camera on the front. This is a nice step-up, as the iPhone 3GS has a 3MP camera, the iPhone 3G has a 2MP camera. While having more megapixels doesn't always equal a better picture, how does images taken by the iPhone 4 look, you might ask? Apple has released six photos taken by their new device and claim they have not been altered or touched-up in any way. When looking at the photos, the first thing we noticed is that they "pop" off the screen, but under closer examination it appears the images have a very high contrast ratio and colors are over saturated. However, detail of the images are pretty good. Since Apple says they are unaltered, we can assume that the combination of the camera and the software is attributing to this. For example, the image of the trees and pond almost doesn't look "real" and more like a painting. The same could be said of the picture of the mountain. Look at the six images below and let us know what you think of them.
