My case camera hole is much bigger than the lens. Almost too big. Better too big than too small.Originally Posted by x01

How about posting one of your pics and maybe we can determine what the issue is. Maybe youve got something inside the lens. If thats the case its a simple fix by going to the apple store.
But I must say, my picture on the 4s are incredible. I took about 100 yesterday for a website Im doing for a business and when we compared mine to the $1000 photographer they used on the last build mine looked better. Then when I open them in camera+ and run the clarity filter they look absolutely incredible.
Were you taking pictures of still objects/scenes in good lighting?Originally Posted by wingzfan61
I agree in such cases the photos on the 4s are great.
No flashOriginally Posted by x01
used camera+ to make black and white
Doin 70 down the road up north just to see if everything focused.
I cant think of a situation where the pics havent come out the way they should
If I was to take 100 photographs with the 4s, sure maybe 30 of those would be great... but the rest would likely be out of focus, blurry or washed out in case of the flash.
I don't actually use my 4s to take many photos anymore as I just can't trust it. Perhaps some would claim it is user error, but I don't have such issues taking photos with a 'real' camera. Not that I'm totally hating on the 4S camera... I still find it great for still shots and especially for video.
You pretty much said it. Ever have a point and shoot that zoomed but then also had a digital zoom that would pick up after reaching the farthest the regular zoom could go? Those too come out very pixelated. Defiantly don't use the zoom. And as far as the flash goes all flash in my opinion looks bad unless you are using it as a fill light. That flash on your camera is so small it doesn't have good diffution of light so it ends up creating harsh shadows unless you stand way back. Best of luck to you.
