The iPhone 5's two cameras have gotten nice spec bumps. The front-facing shooter takes 1.2-megapixel photos, a notable improvement over the VGA-quality pics from the iPhone 4S's front cam. The rear-facing 8-megapixel iSight camera adds a new panorama feature that lets you shoot up to 240 degrees with one motion; the Camera app, A6 chip, and gyroscope team up to stitch together a high-res panoramic pic up to 28 megapixels in size.
The Camera app has other enhancements too, including better performance in low-light settings, improved noise reduction, and 40% faster photo capture, Apple says. And don't forget the hard and rugged sapphire crystal lens cover, which helps prevent the lens surface from scratching.
