Sample Pictures from iPhone 5
One of the things that seems to not change the iPhone 5 is a rear camera unit that has a similar resolution (8 megapixel) with its predecessor.
Just like on the iPhone 4S, iPhone 5′s camera which was named by Apple as “iSight” has f/2.4 aperture, the lens consists of five glass elements, and backside illuminated sensor.
Even so, Apple claims that the iPhone 5 camera is 25 percent smaller than the iPhone 4S camera.
Speed in capturing images called 40 percent faster, while the lenses are now made with a thinner sapphire crystal, but more resilient than glass.
A6 processor of the smartphone is also optimized to reduce noise levels and improve the quality of the image capture in low light conditions.

Unfortunately, none of the images were made shots in low-light illumination conditions to prove the claims of Apple.
In addition to physical improvement, Apple has also included a new feature in the iPhone 5 camera application, the panorama stitch mode to capture views of up to 28 megapixels.
Other improvements include an image stabilization while recording 1080p video and the ability to take photos while recording video, as well as face-detect up to 10 faces at once.
The unit is now front camera can record video in 720p quality, up from VGA resolution on iPhone 4/4S.
