There's a burst mode too, 10fps for as long as you hold your finger on the shutter. (This, presumably, is what it's doing in the background all the time.)
Burst mode will help me get a picture of Al Gore next time.
So, what do you all think so far?
"Now, if every time you did this you'd have to go to your camera roll and sort through your photos, the fun would be lost." But, of course, Apple has your back. The Camera Roll will present its favorite, and you can look at the rest if you like.
(we haven't even gotten to that Home Button yet)
And, if it's an action sequence, it'll choose a few favorites for you to look at. All automatically done.
There's a 120fps slow-motion camera too. We're looking at someone do a rather impressive backflip belly flop into a pool in slow-mo.
The faster video-recording framerate offering slo-mo: good for pool dives, sports...baby tricks
"All of these great features and technologies are simply in service of taking a beautiful picture."
We're looking at a bunch of examples now, all raw photos from the 5S. Typical macro flower shot, some chilis from the garden.
Might we see a hot air balloon, like usual?
Very nice looking fruit and jellyfish and flowers.
Here's a jellyfish at an acquarium.
The jellyfish: that's a challenging shot.
And another picture of the famous squirrel from the last presentation. The California Ground Squirrel, apparently.
I would never get that close to a ground squirrel.
And, yes, it takes great pictures of kids, too.
I mean, these pics look great. But always hard to tell from an event and prepared pics. Panorama shot looks very good, though.
And, yes, panorama shots are possible too. We're spanning across a 28 megapixel panorama, and it automatically adjusted exposure as you cut across. That is a nice improvement.
"So that is the new iSight camera." What's next?
Big applause for the camera.
"The third feature is all about security."
Here comes the fingerprint discussion.
"I miss the old days when documents were actually paper and you could lock them up places and protect them."
Passcodes, too cumbersome. Half of customers don't set up passcode.
"The most common way forces us to set up a pass-code... This is something you do dozens of times a day, to unlock and get access to your phone. Unfortunately, some people find that's too cumbersome and they don't set it up." Phil says half of people don't set up a pass code.
