The "camera" on the iPhone has to be one of the crappiest digital imaging devices I've ever used.
I was at a concert last week and saw all these people take out their iPhones during the set. I can't image they were able to get any kind of good results; especially from a far distance. Nice attempt by you though. =)
I once worked at a shop where we developed films,,,had to bite my tongue several times when some clients with ridiculous compact cameras complained cos their night shots were dark,,they had used flash to light the whole town so ,,how could them be dark???? at first I used to explain..oh yes, I see, but you have to understand your flash barely covers 2 m... so sorry ... but it is not our machine,,it is your flash,,,, later I got tired of giving free advices which nobody listened to,,,and now,,a few days ago,,somebody asked me: How many megapixel does your cam have? and before I could answer he told me,,my phone has 8,,,so I just bit my tongue again and smiled. I wonder why the hell am I carrying my heavy canon when a small mobile can do the same ,,,,;) Let them be happy!
