iPhone 4S is not just about Siri and it’s awesome fun but it’s richness in Multimedia department is also one of the much talked about features of the phone.It sports in a 8 Megapixel Rear Camera which supports 1080 P Video Recording.

We were yet to see some real world examples of the same comparing the video quality with some other devices.Well the wait is over,Robino Films just put up a comparison of the iPhone 4S Full HD video recording with the Canon DSLR Camera,the  EOS 5D MKII  to be specific on  Vimeo.

Here’s what they say about their experience comparing both the gadgets head to head,

Exposure, shutter speed, frame rate and picture style were matched as close as possible between the two cameras.

This test shows that the tiny F2.4 lens and sensor on the iPhone are pretty nice. It even got a little depth of field!


So the one of the touted features of the phone comes as close to a professional camera when we compare the video recording and it’s much more than just a video recorder to fit in a pocket of anyone and at a better price than the DSLR.

iPhone 4S Carriers Go Head-to-Head : AT&T vs Sprint vs Verizon

Are you still confused on buying your iPhone 4S on which  carrier? Well, we can help you with that.AT&T has been the trusted one from the early days of iPhone.However,with the emergence of Verizon and now Sprint, AT&T has been challenged by these contenders for its ‘numero uno‘ spot and is all but ready to take the competition to its competitors and this time the playing field is far more level than it’s ever been.

Now we have three different iPhone 4S running on different carriers.

As you can see for yourself, Sprint is by a mile the slowest of the three networks, with AT&T and Verizon having more or less same speed with respect to web browsing. Now if we talk of download speeds, then, AT&T is far ahead of the rest of the two here, as it has considerably higher download speed due to its improved antenna system.

So the results are there to be seen. Now its your turn to choose which one’s suitable for you. We hope we have helped you in making this decision.
