Fantastic shots Ruaidhri!!

Nice. I find the buffer on my T3i fills up fast too, especially when shooting in RAW.
Yeah, that was a major factor in my upgrade to the 70D. Not only does it fire faster, it holds more photos in the buffer. It's great for getting candid shots.

What stadium is that?

It's the one in Ann Arbor, but I can't remember the name of it offhand. Cool shot Ruaidhri!

Now that's a cool panoramic shot of the stadium. That you got the entire scene in just one image is pretty impressive....a lot of pictures like that are composites of several photos edited together, so congrats!
Michigan Stadium!
And the panorama setting on the iPhone works surprisingly well! This one was the second attempt. The first one came out a little warped.

That's after the ice storm we had here. Wife and I were leaving on Christmas Eve to visit my folks in Pennsylvania, and the sun was making everything glisten like crystal. I took this picture through the driver side window of the car while at a red light--wish I'd time to take more pictures.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Yeah--my 4S takes better pictures than my little Fuji point and shoot. At some point, I want to get a DSLR, but it just isn't in my budget right now.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Most of my Android photos don't look this good, I have to say, and I have a pretty good and recent Android phone. I guess I should consider getting an iPhone just for the long-term photography value.

Yeah, I've been pleasantly surprised by how well my 4S takes photos. I really need to make use of it more often. Don't get me wrong, I love my Canon DSLR. But the iPhone really can give you pretty good, sharp shots in lots of different conditions:

Recently I acquired a Galaxy S-III... I already know that I need to find myself a better camera-driver than what came with the device - My four year older smartphone came with a better camera-driver but I found one that even then I could make tremendously better images with a different driver (alas it was a beta and never came in a fully developed version).

LOVE the photos Rhuaidhri and Ancient Mariner! The colours and texture are gorgeous!

The camera seems to be about the only thing that has remained top notch in the iPhone. Trekkiedane, let me know if you find a driver you're happy with... or if anyone has good suggestions for improving the Galaxy image quality...

For what it's worth, Google has a pretty significant Android camera API update in the works.

^ If it does everything it says on the tin, that's really exciting! I had assumed perhaps they had cut costs on the hardware, rather than a simple software issue... fingers crossed!

Thanks much for that link, Timby. Anything to improve the quality of my phone pictures I'll look into.
