On examination of a handful of shots posted to Flickr by our friends at iFun.de comparing the iPhone 3G’s camera to that of the iPhone 3GS, new details about iPhone 3GS still photo capabilities have been revealed. Notably, photos taken with the iPhone 3GS are saved in 2048 x 1536 (3.1-Megapixel) resolution, with a file size of around 1MB. As expected, the EXIF data on photos taken with the 3GS also shows evidence of auto exposure, auto white balance, and auto focus adjustments, with focal length data; the data also shows a listing for ISO speed. Notably, the EXIF data does not identify the iPhone 3GS as a separate device from the original iPhone or iPhone 3G; all three devices are listed as “iPhone.”
