Where the iPhone 5 sample pictures were taken

Following up on my post from last year where I made a map depicting where the sample photos for the iPhone 4S were taken, I have done the same thing with the sample photos from the iPhone 5. Of the six photos posted, four have GPS tagging (the two photos of the ocean do not):

In general, it seems that this time the photographers stuck “closer to home” and didn’t really go too far away from the San Francisco Bay area. Maybe it’s a good sign for the quality of the iPhone 5’s camera that they didn’t need to.

That's nice! I didn't even know that you could download the original pictures from the keynote with all their metadata.

I'm very impressed by the close up shot. The quality shows that the iPhone can replace my Pentax K-r DSLR for most situations in daily use.

However, I'd really like to see some photos which where taken under very low light conditions and a panorama! The panorama software in the iPhone sounds like it should be: On-the-fly stichting of single photos (according to the keynote). This will make sure to actually use the most of the full pixel resolution. The panorama function on my Nexus in ICS is so bad, I would not even want to show it to anybody :)

Yeah, I was disappointed that they didn't post that supposed 28-megapixel photo of the Golden Gate Bridge, though for the purposes of this specific post it wouldn't have really mattered if the GPS info was intact in the file; the photo itself clearly shows where it was taken. And yeah, I'm looking forward to examining that feature more in-depth as the reviews of the new phone come out.
