A collection of photos shot on the iPhone 4S has been added to Apple’s website, showcasing the prowess of the smartphone’s enhanced 8-megapixel camera.

Among the iPhone’s upgrades announced Tuesday is a powerful camera capable of shooting 1080p hi-def videos on a f2.4 lens as well as real-time image stabilization and noise reduction. The new illuminator sensor reportedly gets 73 percent more light than the iPhone 4 and is a third faster as well.

The high-resolution photos on Apple’s website are said to be “unretouched photos,” whatever that means. And certainly from the looks of them, they’re a lot more exciting than that sushi shot that surfaced early September, allegedly the first test shot of the latest iPhone (then inaccurately named by media as the iPhone 5).

Take a look for yourself and be amazed at the abilities of a smartphone camera.
