iPhone 5 Newest Features to Drool On

iPhone is fast becoming the topmost favorite brand of smart phones nowadays. Because of its cool designs and sleek features, one cannot simply ignore the lure of this electronic gadget. With the latest release of iPhone 4s, a fifth generation in the iPhone lineage, many people thought that having one is more than a luxury but a necessity as well. Cool unique features include rear and front cameras that are used for video calling or simply shooting self-portraits and uploading it to Facebook account. iPhone has 8 megapixel resolution which is quite higher than its earlier generation.

Apple develops iMovie for iPhone which is a special application that has Windows Movie Maker capacity. But unlike the latter, you will be free from the hassle of importing and exporting the videos to computer and vice versa. With iMovie installed you can edit, crop, and put titles to your self-made movies and directly send it to You Tube or Facebook for instant publication. Because of its high definition camera and video capacity, movie directors also used iPhone in film shooting at high speed action. Any moviegoer would not even tell a slightest difference between the scenes that are shot with real camera or iPhone camera. iPhone is also more an aesthetic display but also an intelligent virtual personal assistant.

Powered by Apple iOS, Speech Interpretation and Recognition Interface (SIRI) becomes the latest trend in Smartphone technology. It understands and follows speech commands of the users like getting directions, reminding birthdays or appointments, arranging movie reservations, etc. The most amazing part is that SIRI speaks back in a conversational tone like a real personal assistant. With these cool features, no wonder that SIRI is already incorporated in a movie with the same title.

iPhone 5 HD video upgrade rumors

There are rumors circulating the internet that the newest iPhone 5 will have full 1080p high speed video recording capability at 100fps. So it’s hard to imagine shooting for an extended time with the faster shutter speed and HD but it would give you the ability to slow down movies smoothly up to 3x. That would allow for some cool special effects. Check out a skating video at youtube done in 1080 at 100fps, it’s sweet!!

Obviously a frame rate of 300fps, 600fps, or 1200fps would be amazing but I don’t see current technology pulling this off in such a small device. It would also be nice if they could add a 3x zoom in the new phone that wasn’t just a digital zoom. One can only hope I guess.

If you want to check out other rumors about the iphone 5 check out CNN’s post over here. Of course, if you are captuing high speed video then you need larger storage capacity.  It would be sweet if they offered an iPhone 5 with 256 gig of storage. One day technology will push us there and I am sure Apple will be more than happy to charge us a premium price to own one.

If this happens, it would just give independent film makers another tool to us for shooting extra angles for their movies. I also have found the first sneak peak at the new iPhone 5 and what the design will look like here.

The battery life of the iPhone 5 is rumored to be 2x as long as the old one… at least in standby mode….. it has some new technology that barely uses any juice while in standby. If you are using it constantly only expect a 25% improvement in battery life… BUT heck that is still really good. It’s worth it for me to upgrade if I only got a 15% improvement. What do you guys think?
