But, like the original iPhone, the iPhone 3G camera had trouble with bright, cloudy skies. The light tended to wash out surrounding surrounding objects, as is the case with the building on the left side of this picture.
Other interior shots showed decent quality as well.
The white-balance issue is also present in this photo. The detail in the waterfalls, however, is pretty good.
The iPhone 3G's camera is better suited to blue or partly cloudy skies.
The iPhone 3G also did well with this shot of AT&T Park.
Here we shot bricks in the sidewalk outside the ballpark. The camera picked out the details well, even though it lacks a zoom.
The iPhone 3G did a better job with distance shots than the original iPhone.
Similarly, the colors are bright in this picture of a flower.
Shots in the shade looked pretty good, but the white-balance issue is present here as well.
The iPhone 3G can't handle subjects in motion. This subway car was reduced to a blur.
Night shots also didn't fare well. The iPhone 3G lacks a flash and bright lights, like the streetlight at left, were overpowering.
Night distance shots were poor as well.
On the whole, the iPhone 3G offered better image quality than its predecessor. In this interior shot, colors were bright and there was little image noise.
