No Comments Photography, Tech News

From Engadget

We did take a look at a printed shot at the top native ISO of 51,200, which looked quite crisp and clean, though there was a noticeable jump in noise from an identical frame shot at ISO 25,600.

We’ve heard mixed reports about an expected release date, but Wall Street Journal sources “familiar with the matter” are claiming that the phone will ship in mid-October. One source also stated that Sprint will begin carrying the iPhone 4 at the same time — presumably with a price drop in tow.
