What Phil said.

I've actually delayed replacing my lost Canon G9 since i've started using 
the iPhone 4 camera.

Took my first night/flash shots Saturday of a completed outdoor carpentry 
job.  The flash worked really well from about 15 feet.  I was surprised.

For now, as a business tool, the iPhone camera works really well, plus I 
often use the eMail app icon imbedded in the photo display to ship 
seconds-old  images to my customers from the job site.

They like it.

Couple of impromptu family portraits actually enlarged to 8x10 with very 
acceptable resolution.  Overall a very useful device integrated into a very 
useful device.

Regards,  Bob
