I agree with the previous statements. If you WANT the iphone4s then go get it. Seems like you need us to make the decision for you. Personally, the iphone camera is in no league to consider against the S100.

Just because professional "that" is using it doesn't mean you need to. Lol at status quo's.

Um, plus you already have the S95

I was thinking the same thing... keep the S95 and get the iPhone 4s, best of both worlds!

Your attitude sucks...

Yeah, well, so does your reading comprehension. My comments were not intended to be personal. Sorry if you took them that way.

As others have suggested, I'll probably end up getting the iPhone 4s and upgrading my S95 to the S100. The iPhone camera will be used for more spontaneous photos when I don't have my P&S.

The improved camera is the only reason I will upgrade my Iphone 4. I just find that I tend to have my phone always with me and I am taking more pictures than ever with my phone. Already the Iphone 4 camera is great, and that seems to have improved even more. The must have applications on the Iphone are HDR pro and the Panorama application. My phone now works as a carry along scanner.

I follow the blog of a well-known (at least in Europe), published photographer. BEAUTIFUL beautiful work. She does a lot of fashion shoots as well. Leica is her camera.

However, some of the photos on her blog are with her iPhone. She sets it on Hipstamatic and lets 'er rip.

pretty much any cell phone these days is good enough for a point and shoot replacement.

thats a huge jump from being a replacement for an actual camera though...

Granted these are all static pictures, but these were taken by a 5M Samsung Galaxy S 4G TMobile Phone. When the Galaxy S2 arrived on Oct. 12 here in USA (TMobile) I will get one, which is 8M Pixel.

I just used some LR3 PP into it...

Enjoy! =)

Yes, but in most cases it is the difference between having a camera or not having the opportunity to take the picture at all. That is why I think any progression in IQ with regards to phone cameras is a huge deal. Having said that, the latest Iphone 4 camera is really very good, especially if you use HDR. With the latest release, the camera will be as good as the best P&S of just a couple of years ago.

If your attitude was 1/10th as good as my reading comprehension, we wouldn't be having this chat :) Stop being a little child and go take some amazing magazine photos with your phone :)

No, I'm not joking. As far as I can tell, the 4S camera is probably the most sophisticated cellphone camera on the market. I have an S95 now, which I will sell to help fund the S100 purchase. I should probably just get both. There are times when I won't have the S100 with me, but I do have my cellphone with me virtually all the time.

LIke you said... it a CELLPHONE camera. THe primary purpuse is a cell phone, not a camera. To me the camera is a bonus, but not the main purpose of the device. I have an iPhone 4G and in a pinch it does okay. But if you zoom in to take the picture, you really see the difference (grainy as $h1t).

My position is... if you want to make phone calls, get a phone. If you want to take pictures, get a camera. If you have a phone that works but you want to take decent pictures, then spend your money on the camera.

An outstanding photographer can take outstanding photos with anything. However, he'll have an easier time taking those outstanding photographs with a more advanced camera.

If you're not outstanding, that will continue to be true - if you want to take a good photo, a good camera will make it easier to do that than a poor one (or a cell phone) will.

There are almost half a million pictures here that will prove that an Iphone camera can take good pictures. Yes it does have limitations, but it also had a huge advantage and that is that it will always be with you wherever you go.

I just got the Iphone 4 (yeah, super old technology) and am taking quite a bit of photos with it. It's gotten me out of the "I need a point and shoot" mode. I still am craving the S-100 or 95, but not nearly as much as I did. I have my T2i, which is a great camera, but I'm having fun with this Iphone, especially since I can do goofy stuff like this VVV. I can take the photo, process it, and have it online within minutes. No computer needed. I have several dumb/good apps that will process photos in various ways. I'm having a blast with it. I even have a de-motivational poster app that I play with. the last three photos are self-portraits. The first is "faces", a free app that adds cartoon hats and such to your photos. I combined that with the Movtivational app. I also have the free version of zombie booth and the paid version of fat booth (which doesn't work that well, but sometimes nails it.

I say keep the 95 (great camera) and get the Iphone. then download fatbooth, Zombie booth and other dumb apps and have fun. it's really neat to make a photo (like the first one below), fun it through B-Funky (free app) put labels on it (another free app), and then email it to friends, all within one or two minutes.

FWIW, tomorrow, when my 4S arrives, it WILL be replacing my Elph 100 HS. I have no doubt that it will perform as well as the 100 HS in normal shooting conditions. In low-light shooting would likely favor the Elph, but I don't find myself using the Elph in low light anyway.

There are a some compromises with the iPhone 4S compared with the S95/S100, however.

>>Fixed FL
>>Fixed aperture
>>1/3.2" sensor (1/4" on the iPhone 4)
>>no A/S/M modes
>>really weak LED "flash"
>>no still image stabilization
>>no RAW
>>no hard controls (control ring, mode selector, etc.)
>>very few advanced settings at all
>>no built-in ND filter

In short, if you can live with your P&S being stuck at 32mm & f/2.4 and in full auto mode, you can live with the iPhone 4S. ;)
