Dust in Apple Iphone 5 Sensor?:
This is not a traditional camera/photo related post but this does have to do with photography. Plus, this is a blog so it’s pretty much what I feel like talking about at this moment :). My brother in-law bought the new Iphone 5 when it first came out, and has loved it ever since. Like most people he uses the camera on it all the time for facebook, twitter, etc. The other day, he took a few photos with the Iphone 5 that completely surprised him. He said that there were dust spots, and they must be located on the sensor. I was like, “Dust spots on a camera phone sensor?” I’ve never seen dust spots on a camera phone let alone a Iphone 5 that has been recently released.
He sent me the photos, and I hate to say it but they sure look like dust spots on the sensor to me. What do any of you think? Any of you Iphone 5 users experience this? Feel free to comment below. I don’t think there’s anything to worry about because Apple has very good customer service, and will probably just give him a new one. It just sucks because there’s still a bit of a wait for new Iphones so he will probably have to wait a bit before he gets a replacement. I hope this is not a sign of poor quality control. If so, who knows if the same issue will show up on his replacement. Either way, I’m most likely going to purchase my first Iphone after my contract is over :). However, I’m definitely not going to purchase one of these unlocked ones…jeez, have you seen the prices??? I can buy a Leica 50 Summarit! Take care everyone, and thanks for stopping by!
