iPhone 4S camera blows out highlights

Annie Leobowitz recently compared the iPhone 4S camera with a high end Canon DSLR. She was impressed except that the iPhone automatic exposure blows the detail out of highlights.

I'm trying out an iPhone 4S and got the same problem of blown highlights.

Anyone have a bright idea to control this?

Yes:

Why not use a camera.

You could try turning on the HDR option in the camera app. http://www.macworld.com/articl.../hdrdosanddonts.html

You'll find that most Point-N-Shoots along with high-end camera phones can keep up with DSLRs under certain conditions such as normal 50mm views with the sun coming in over your shoulder for lighting. Some small cameras do very well in close-up mode also. However, when you are trying to capture an unusually challenging subject under anything but ideal conditions, better glass, a larger sensor, and faster electronics will be your best shot, and in some cases your only shot.

I like the iPhone 4S camera because it is always with me. That being said, as stated above, I have found it is OK under ideal conditions. It is not great for low light situations and forget trying to capture anything in motion (at least still shots).

Just a thought- Imagine having this conversation in the 1960's. We've come a long way in a short time.

Well, it is a camera, but the real reason is that it is difficult to unpack, aim, and shoot my Canon 30D DSLR while operating a motor vehicle. And, I almost always have my iPhone with me but not always my 30D.
