    Really low light, at night on a shelf in my office. You have to take my word for it that I didn't dick around with the light or anything between these two shots.

      Looks like the iPhone (4s as well as 5) wants to limit shutter speed to 1/15 seconds at slowest to not induce camera shake. I actually didn't know that, but your EXIF data seem to tell the story. And then, with max ISO 800 on the iPhone 4 and finally a similar aperture, stuff like this unfortunately happens. There's just nothing more it can do, optically. Apple allowing iPhone 5 to reach for ISO 3200 makes two full stops of brighter exposure which indeed forms a world of a difference in low-light situations.

      is the 4S updated with iOS6?

      With iOS 6, the 4S gets the panorama mode added to the Camera app.

      Yes, my 4S was upgraded to the iOS 6 GM when I took these images.
