Just the Facts Ma'am - What's New for the iPhone 5S Camera?

What would Dragnet's Sergeant Joe Friday want to know about the new iPhone 5S camera? "Just the facts ma'am, nothing but the facts." Phil Schiller said today at the Apple Event, "we just want to take a picture and have the iPhone take a better picture for us." Will the iPhone 5S help us achieve that end?

For all of the Joe Fridays out there, here are the facts in a nutshell.
  • 5-element Apple designed lens with f2.2 aperture which lets more light into sensor
  • Sensor 15% larger active area
  • Auto White Balance
  • Auto Exposure
  • Dynamic Local Tone Map for better highlights and shadows
  • Takes multiple photos and analyzes for sharpest image
  • True Tone Flash with 2 LEDs - Cool White and Warm Amber which analyzes scene in real time and adjusts to situation for best flash color
  • Auto image stabilization 
  • Burst mode - hold shutter button for 10fps. A7 chip selects "best shot"
  • Slo-Mo - select for slow motion video (120 fps)
