Rooster Teeth Productions has put together a trailer for their upcoming movie Siri: The Holiday Horror Movie. The movie looks well put together and very professional. It is meant to be a comedy/horror about a group of friends that all get an iPhone 4S for Christmas. Siri not only can be your personal assistant, but it can control your life!
A new concept from ARD studios created a concept mock-up of a point-and-shoot iPhone accessory. The accessory is not real, but it does give case makers some great ideas. The concept of iCam is simply an accessory that the iPhone slides into. The phone will connect at the bottom of the iCam with Apple’s 30-pin connector. The iCam now allows you to use your iPhone as a digital SLR camera within this case.

Even though the iCam is not real, it still gets me excited about what is to come. If iCam were real, I would ditch my Nikon SLR camera for it. This would also allow iPhone users to quickly snap photos for iPhoto or their Photo Stream without having to sync their DSLR. iCam is the future of photography.
With the new iPhone 4S comes a new camera. Apple’s new 4S camera is 8 megapixels, has a redesigned lens structure, and new camera speeds. The iPhone 4S camera is truly a revolution when equipped with a f/2.4 lens, which means the lens can open wider and faster, which lets in more light, making the picture clearer. With the lens snapping faster shots, action shots at sports games can easily be obtained without blur. Combined with Apple’s A5 processor, the new iPhone 4S camera can perform as well as, if not better, than your average point-and-shoot camera. Another feature of the new camera is the ability to take amazingly clear macro shots (like the one above). Macro is a step above micro, which means it’s taking pictures of things like rings, insects, detailed flowers, etc. The iPhone 4S also records video in full 1080p HD. High definition video was first released with the iPhone 4, but it was only 720p.
When compared with the original iPhone, 3G, 3GS, and 4, the iPhone 4S has an amazing ability to focus and capture the detail in an image. You can hardly tell what the item is on the original iPhone and 3G’s photos. Cell phone cameras have come a long way, and they will continue to grow!
