To test the iPhone 5's photo and video capabilities, our engineers are running it through a battery of tests. For video, we test clarity, color accuracy, and noise in low light, daylight, and tungsten light. And for still images, we'll check resolution, color accuracy, dynamic range, and noise at different sensitivities, in both daylight and low light. We'll also test for shutter delay.
