Official: iPhone 4 to Boast 5MP Camera, LED Flash, and 720p Video Recording

Engadget and MacRumors were covering Steve Jobs' keynote address at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2010 this morning, where Jobs announced the next-generation iPhone that everyone has already seen through the multiple, highly-publicized leaks in the past couple months.

The leaks suggested that the iPhone 4 would have a new front-facing camera as well as an LED flash in the back, and both these things were confirmed at the keynote today. In addition, the phone will feature a 5 megapixel camera, and high-definition recording at 720p and 30 fps.

Photography School Launches Camera Phone Course

Camera phone photography has been exploding in popularity in recent times -- pretty much every new phone is equipped with a camera nowadays, the iPhone is the most popular "camera" on Flickr, photographer Chase Jarvis has launched a mini-empire around the slogan "The Best Camera Is The One That's With You", the sensors for mobile phones are approaching absurd numbers of megapixels, etc... -- so it's not surprising that a UK-based photography school has launched a course dedicated to cell phone photography.
