iPhone 5 Sample Images
I must be the only guy on the planet to shoot the iPhone 5 straight, that is, without screwing around with the image in a zillion apps. Yes, I use Photoshop CS6 to reformat the images for display here, but otherwise the colors and everything are essentially what came out of the camera.
My biggest source of support is when you use any of these links, especially this link directly to the iPhone 5 at eBay (see How to Win at eBay), when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. Thanks! Ken.
