After watching the keynote - and learning the remote device/embedded software combo also works across bluetooth, you could go nuts actually.
one example: remotely triggered self-powered strobe or even multiple strobe slave lighting setups would let you place the flash (or accessory camera or....??) anywhere within 30 feet.
control of light - which is the real essence of photography - is the most powerful part of the picture-making process and will help extract whatever quality the iPhone camera is capable of.

Well 'scuse me for not knowing that symbol, but I assure you lots of people on this thread have little idea of what goes into making a good camera. So as a photographer, just trying to empower people a little beyond the megapixel myth.
Since his post was meant to be sarcastic with lots of caps and flourishes I figured that was another. I don't even know if he actually meant the camera was 'stunning' either, but some will believe it's Hasselblad quality if it's announced from the mothership. It's probably a nice to very nice cell phone cam. But it's only a cell phone cam and subject to the limitations of the tech and the laws of physics, and folks should temper their expectations accordingly.
So, yeah, I admit to being verbose, but only about things I know something about and which are worth knowing for people who are interested in the topic. Personally, I thought I was pretty succinct for a topic that can and does fill many books.
You may all now return to repetitive endless war stories and opinions on AT&T upgrade pricing.
