The iPhone 3G S boasts a 3Mp camera that lets you capture and edit both still images and video. The new camera offers a "tap to focus" feature that can automatically adjust an image for focus, exposure, colour, and contrast.

A "trim" option allows you to set in and out points to manipulate video. You'll also be able to upload videos to YouTube or MobileMe or send them via email. Multimedia messaging (MMS) is also available.
