    Those look like cell phone pics to me. Not very focused and sharp.

    Rotfl.

    Spoken like a true technophile.

    One could say the same of these, some of the most famous and poignant photos of in history -

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMEOz...layer_embedded

    Try not to pay attention to the color balance on the shot of the monk praying over his just-deceased brother.

    Or to the graininess of the shot from D-Day.

    Or to the focus problem in the shot of the woman putting a flower in the National Guard soldier's rifle.

    Just relax and be moved.

    Yes but all those old photos were taken with a camera that when you press the shutter release the camera would record the decisive moment. Not wait .5 sec to think about it!

    Biker, biker, biker...

    1) Technically, there's no (zero) shutter lag in the iPhone 4s;

    2) Anecdotally, I use my iPhone 4 camera every day and I've experienced no lag;

    3) Practically, check the Olympic photos again and find one where there's a missed moment.

    That and he used clip on lenses and binoculars for his camera. That is what I want to do. Carry a bag of DSLR lenses around and hold my phone up to the back of them. Those photos are crap cell phone pics no matter what phone took them.

    And for the guy covering battle with his I phone he was probably just to scared to actually look through the camera. Just barly hold his phone up and start snapping pics. That way his head wasn't on the other side of the camera. I bet after it was all said and done he wishes he could go back and take pictures with a real camera.

    What a small minded and ignorant primate you are, Booker.

    You and the slime trail you leave behind as evidence of your existence aren't worth the time it would take me to try to educate you about how individuals like Damon Winter risk their lives to cover war.

    Look up the names Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros; they were both killed in Libya. Look up the name Joao Silva, he had both legs blown off in Afghanistan.

    Then crawl back into the stagnant pond from which you emerged. The world is a better place with you hidden there.

    Wow, little angry?

    Unless I'm missing something, I doubt this forum is a place for this kind of "discussion"...
