iPhone 3GS can take professional grade shots? You bet!

iPhone 3GS can take professional grade shots? You bet!
Most users will probably laugh, should you tell them that you can take professional grade photos with the iPhone 3GS's basic 3-megapixel autofocus shooter, which even lacks a flash. But do you know what's actually funnier? That they would be wrong.

Lee Morris, professional photographer, from FStoppers has taken on the task of using his Apple iPhone 3GS for a full fashion photo shoot, in order to prove that you don't need to have the latest and greatest camera with a high megapixel count to be able to take beautiful photographs. And we've got to tell you, as we examined  the images, we certainly came to believe this guy. Well of course, they were made possible by the participation of a hairdresser, make-up artist, a professional model, studio lighting and retoucher, but you know, a cell phone cam is still a cell phone cam, and knowing that it's capable of doing such great things is really inspiring.

You can see the images of the iPhone 3GS below, as well as a behind-the-scenes video to let you know how the magic is done, plus a weird video with trains taken and edited solely on the iPhone 4, which in turn comes to prove that it's more than capable of replacing your dedicated HD camcorder.

So, what are your thoughts on the matter? Have you ever used your cell phone's cam to take incredible images? Feel free to share with us in the comments!

Almost every mobile phone & every digital camera can take professional shots like this it you take hundreds of shots in perfect light at least one will be good enough.

Yeah well I think that this article is a sort of a response to all those who said that the camera on the 3GS was crappy. Clearly - it's not.

These are some great shots but did anyone else notice that they ALSO photoshop the pictures? Look at it again and you see the original picture and then the final one they used. Its true ANYONE can take shots like this if you have the software to manipulate the lighting.
