I was excited to learn that the iPhone 4S would be equipped with a much improved 8 megapixel camera. MrsMJonTravel and I dutifully presented ourselves at the Apple Store just a few days after the new iPhone debuted. I called before going to the store just to ensure that phones were available, and they were. We showed up and bought our new iPhone 4S’ to replace our aging iPhone 3GS’.

After hearing how much better the iPhone 4S camera was, I was anxious to try it out. Our recent back to back cruises on Allure of the Seas offered the ideal opportunity to do so. In truth, every photo I snapped during the 14 days aboard Allure was taken with my iPhone 4S. Here are just a few shots. Tell me what you think.


These are just a few pictures I took during our recent cruise aboard Allure of the Seas. The verdict? The iPhone 4S is a reasonably suitable point and shoot camera. It is not perfect, but I found that if I had more than a second or two to focus, the iPhone 4S took decent pictures…..and video. Have you had any experience with the iPhone 4S. What do you think of its performance as a camera?
