iPhone OS 4 code includes camera flash functions
posted by Ray S. / Apr 09, 2010, 5:43 AM
It appears that in addition to new settings like digital zoom and probably white balance, devs have also located the following functions: AVCaptureDevice.hasFlash, AVCaptureDevice.flashMode, and AVCaptureDevice.hasTorch. These of course hint at the presence of camera flash in the next iPhone (presumably to be announced this summer). Sounds like Apple has decided to heavily improve their piece of hardware in terms of camera performance. This will be especially true in case the reports about OmniVision's deal to supply about 45 million 5MP camera sensors for the successor to the 3GS, are also true. In other words, we may soon see a great smartphone become a great... camera phone?

yea i agree with u they should ATLEAST put an 8 megapixel camera on the next iphone and a good camera flash not a crappy one like on the samsung behold .. because if u look at all the upcoming phones evo 4G ,sony ericsson xperia x10 they all have 8 megapixel cameras .. and i dont think anything beyond 5 megapixels is an overkill cause i had the samsung behold and samsung memoir the behold had an 5 megapixel camera and the memoir has an 8 megapixel camera and the picture quality on the behold was horrible even in daylight the pictures came out kinda crappy and the night shots were even worse cause it has a crappy flash the memoir has a diffrent kind of flash a better one like a real camera ... then on the samsung memoir picture quality was amazing even night shots because it has an awesome flash .. the pictures i took with the memoir at night looked like pictures i took in the day lol cause it had a very strong camera like flash ...

At this point..whats the diff. between an android 2.1 cellphone and my iphones 3gs OS4 when its available?..I dont see much of a difference other than android devices always lagged in one way or another at least..iphones were always 3x more responsive James Dang..5mp or 12mp only means that if you DO print the pics..one would be improved on printing paper..then again you didnt know this either!

I love how idiots out there think that the more megapixels a camera has, the better pics it will take. In all reality, one only needs about 3 megapixels to print off pics for the popular 4x6 pictures. The cameras lens has far more to do with taking a quality picture, hence some higher megapixels cameraphones take shittier pics that cameraphones with less megapixels, but a better lens.

This is all true, but not for the selling point perspective. Consumers want more and bigger the better, such as pixels and store capacity. I think Apple should be introducing 8 MP camera phone or higher since many other competitors are jumping over 5MP. It is just for satisfying consumers. When they can get more, why not, with the acknowledgment or not of how camera pixel work. It's all about catching up or leading the competitors in terms of hardware spec. iPhone classic was the leader in phone no doubt, and so that many consumers are waiting for another leading phone coming from Apple. Its current spec is just not leading but only catching up the competitors.

jrcrow, you always say stupid bullstuff. you have no sources, you have no experience in anything but an itouch. You just dont know when to give up your worthless device and get something that doesnt limit itself. It's so funny how there is no difference AFTER the OS is 4.0....and what happened to all the shit talking you were doing up till now saying apple is better than android? NOW it will be the same after the 4.0 upgrade? lol you just burned yourself
