My wife just showed me this shot taken early this morning of our younger son Philip holding his 2 month old baby sister Isabella: Phone Camera Photo by Amin Sabet, on Flickr In relatively low light, her iPhone 5S chose f/2.2, ISO 320, and 1/15s for this photo. I imagine that a typical "entry level" Canon or Nikon APS-C camera with kit zoom would have chosen f/4.5 (2 stops slower f-number), 1/60s (two stops slower shutter speed), and ISO 5000 (4 stops higher ISO) with a very similar resulting image. I know the old photo dawgs often repeat in photography forums that holding the camera out in front, away from the eye, is asking for camera shake. I've found that it very much depends on one's technique as well as the camera. In particular, tiny light cell phones lacking any shutter vibration lending themselves to great results at very slow shutter speeds, even without any sort of image stabilization.
