Do you have the new iPhone 5?

Initial review of iPhone 5 panorama feature

Well, the Apple panorama feature is technically a feature of the new iOS 6 that’s being rolled out – but it comes standard with the new iPhone 5 which I picked up yesterday.

See an example below of the Hoboken Little League field. Not bad, not great – but acceptable. Will try out night shots this weekend (Apple claims f/2.0 but I have my doubts and expect blurry photos without a tripod).

Why’d I make the switch?

I was a bit frustrated with the overall use of the Nokia 808 PureView which I reviewed recently. I was hoping to find an “end all be all” camera phone that could lighten my load a bit, but even though the camera on that phone was incredible – I decided it wasn’t worth it – and will stick to the digital SLR’s for the foreseeable future.

Have a nice day!

I use Google Map’s transit directions too often to make the switch from iOS5 to iOS6, so until there’s a Google Map app, I’m sticking with my iPhone 4S.
