What is the best camera currently on the market? Gear Diary knows and we’re willing to let you in on the secret… The best camera currently available is… the iPhone 3GS.
“Huh?” You say, “It is just 3MP, doesn’t have a flash. Isn’t the fastest sensor around. And the list goes on and on and on. The iPhone 3GS is the best camera… you’ve got to be kidding.”
No we’re not and here’s why.
This is how Larry is spending his Saturday. (That’s a 3Alarm barn fire for those of you wondering.)
Larry was able to share the image with us when he took a break from battling the fire. While he would not likely have a Casio or Lumix camera with him on a day like today (and if he did tansferring them would have to wait until he got home) he DOES have his iPhone. That means he could snap the shot and immediately share it over the data connection.
So why is the relatively weak iPhone 3GS the best camera around?
Because it is there when you want to grab and share the shot in a way that was previously unknown to the 30 million iPhone users.
