First Shot With My iPhone

It’s been a while since I updated my blog. So what is new, eh? Been busy lately. But here’s good news.

This was my very first shot taken with the iPhone. Can you recognise Starbucks? I was sitting outside and took a picture of the inside through the glass partition. They have dim yellow lighting inside and it was taken at about 9.30pm.

Well, I was rather happy with the quality of the shot except for the man who came into my frame just as I was capturing the picture. Yerrrr spoilt my picture already! Geram!

I know that if I were to shoot a similar picture with my E61i, it would not appear as good. If you do not know yet, E61i fails terribly with night shots.

Also, considering that the iPhone only has a “capture” button but the E61i has four zoom levels, night mode, sequence mode and self timer, I think the iPhone is able to give better quality shots generally. And the image is saved as soon as the picture is captured for the iPhone while for Nokia E61i, it takes a week. πŸ˜€

What do you think of the quality?
With love

  1. The iPhone camera was meant to be a ‘damngoodbasic’ camera. Its quality pull off at 2 megapixels only to me even defies the Sony Ericssons. In particular, my w800i.

    This is the quality every camera on a phone should be produced regardless if there’s zoom or modes. πŸ™‚

  2. Danny,

    I have to agree with you.

    I was surpised too at the quality. You should see my Nokia’s shots. Those that are published at the “OK” ones. LOL

  3. Hi Alan,

    I won my iPhone in a contest but it does not mean that it’s totally free because there were other miscellaneous $ that I had to pay.

    If you are thinking of buying an iPhone, you have to think of your usage. It’s more an mp3/video player. The phone comes second as the functions are basic.

    If you are a heavy texter, then this is not the phone for you. We can’t even forward a message via SMS or send a message to multiple recipients. There’s no MMS too. These are the things that we have taken for granted in our handphones.

    There are other limitations as well. I can’t even use my 3G sim card.

    On the other hand, it’s a great gadget to have if you want a multi-media player with wi-fi access.

  4. Hi Danny,

    Thanks for your input.

    Can you please let me know how to install 3rd party apps? I would like to have some games and new wallpaper.

    I do see the “Installer” on my SpringBoard and there are many apps there but when I selected “install”, my iPhone freezes. I see that my game is installed but where is it? I can’t find it anywhere lol

    Also, I can’t seem to log into my accounts for PPP and other paid posts websites. Is it because of the interface of the website or something?

    Sorry for all the questions πŸ˜€

  5. Hey Emily,

    That is weird. By any chance do you know how is your iPhone unlocked? I’m assuming they used an open-source one for yours.

    Anyway, for installing…all you need really is to select the game. For example; I’ll navigate to All Packages then scroll. So let’s say you select iBlackjack or MobileRSS (good for keeping track of your feeds). Then you click Install.

    The screen will have a black overlay and you’ll see the installer bar. Some apps may take awhile depending on the size of the file and the speed of the Wi-Fi connection (signal strength).

    For wallpapers (or themes), you could install Summerboard (themes). If you want custom wallpapers from artwork made in Photoshop by yourself you’ll need a program to transfer and customize your iPhone.

  6. Hi Danny,

    Thanks for responding.

    I did the unlocking myself using Jailbreak and AnySim.

    My signal strength is great because I am on wi-fi at home. I guess I will try to install something else.

    The thing that is bothering me is the lack of 3G hence I can’t ditch my Nokia E61i, and also somehow I can’t log into my accounts on various websites.

    Otherwise, the iPhone would be “perfect” πŸ˜€

  7. Well, it’s only polite to reply to your commenters. πŸ™‚

    Wow, a techy girl – that, I don’t meet often. No harm intended there.

    Well, I’m not into the whole “3G’ video-conferencing yet. But I’ve heard some good things about it’s speed for surfing so that just might be my excuse to signup in future.

    In the meantime, I’ll tap open wireless and use my iPhone as it is. πŸ˜‰

    p.s: I’m curious as to what plugin you’re using to send me comment updates although I haven’t subscribed to this. It’s a useful plugin plus it’ll be great when commenters delete the email alert, they won’t be alerted again. In other words, if they don’t want to reply back to the comment then it’s the end of it.

  8. Hi Danny,

    The plug-in I’m using is called Comment Email Responder.

    I love it because readers will be notified of the blogger’s specific reply to their comments via email so they don’t have to come to the blog and keep checking for a reply.

    I use it on all my WP blogs and it does bring in returning readers.

  9. Waaa, you so HiTech! LOL, I am loving my iPhone, even more so ever since I unlocked it finally with a TurboSIM card! Wheeee… my fave wallpaper at the moment is the LV Takashi Murakami white.. or black..

    LB’s last blog post..Yumm Yumm Till I Drop!

  10. Albie,

    Thanks for dropping by.

    Your unlocking process is waaaay more complex than mine. I think I would have given up or paid someone else to do it for me!!

    My wallpaper is currently “Emily The Strange” in black & white. I modified it from a desktop wallpaper. Lovin’ it, too!

  11. Where on earth did you get IPohone from, and how much does it cost? Picture quality sucks, obviously, and i think can’t be even compared to Viewty I’m using now(LG phone with 5megapixels camera and divx etc). But IPhone thats a pure show off no matter what. Congrats
