iPhone Photo on Cover of Time Magazine

I feel somewhat vindicated. The latest issue of Time used a dramatic iPhone 4s photo of Hurricane Sandy taken by Ben Lowy for the cover. See Forbes for more details on this selection.

I have argued for some time that the best general purpose camera is an iPhone. You always have it with you, and the quality of the photos is excellent. In fact, with all the photo apps that are available on iTunes, you can frequently do things on an iPhone that are difficult or even impossible with an expensive SLR. And if it’s good enough for Time magazine, it’s good enough for me.

    I love my 4s and have taken some fantastic photos with it. Nothing like this one, of course, but it’s saved me many times when I haven’t bothered to take my SLR with me. More and more I don’t bother to take the SLR.
