Camera and photos

The iPhone features a built in 2.0 mega pixel camera located on the back for still digital photos. It has no optical zoom, flash or auto focus, and does not support video recording. Version 2.0 of iPhone OS introduced the capability to embed location data in the pictures, producing decoded photographs.

The iPhone includes software that allows the user to upload, view, and e-mail photos. The user zooms in and out of photos by sliding two fingers further apart or closer together, much like Safari. The Camera application also lets users view the camera roll, the pictures that have been taken with the iPhone's camera. Those pictures are also available in the Photos application, along with any transferred from iPhoto or Aperture on a Mac, or Photo shop in Windows.
