Red tail hawk at Boonshoft Museum in Dayton

We took a little trip to Dayton today, meeting up with the wife’s brother and his family so we could take our niece to the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery. Between her parents her aunt, her day was more than well documented in photos, so I decided to just try and grab a few to see how the iPhone camera stacks up.

As you can see, for a cell phone camera, it’s pretty decent. Now, don’t get me wrong, I have no plans of ditching my Nikon D50 for this, but it’s nice to know I can get the occasional good shot for those times when I don’t have the D50 with me.

One big reason I wouldn’t necessarily want to do a lot of shooting with the iPhone is the battery drain. I would guess I took a total of about 20 photos today, and checked on email every once in awhile, and took one phone call over the course of 5 hours. My battery went from a full charge when we left this morning, to 47% when we were heading home. Ouch!
