Children of the late '60s and early '70s remember how birthdays and holidays were documented back then, using bulky Super-8mm film cameras capable of shooting only three minutes at a time -- which may soon be resurrected for the digital age.
There's little doubt that we live in a wireless world, so it's always nice to see formerly corded accessories gain a little more mobility by cutting the wires. The latest to do so is the webcam, thanks to a new offering from Logitech.
Not only does the iPhone 5 bump the front camera into high-definition territory with the ability to take and transmit 720p video footage -- as well as much clearer still photos -- but iOS 6 also now allows for FaceTime conversations over cellular networks. Better video, sending over a cellular network -- anyone else nervous about their data plan? We put it to the test.
Of all the subtle yet significant enhancements in iPhone 5, perhaps the sneakiness is FaceTime. Not only do we get a 720p camera for the first time on an iPhone, we also get the ability to make FaceTime calls wherever we are, thanks to iOS 6's untethering from Wi-Fi.
