When Apple (AAPL) introduced the iPhone 4S to the world last October, consumers were initially disappointed the handset wasn’t the fabled iPhone 5. With added features like Siri and a dual-core processor, some early reviews labeled the smartphone as a minor update from the iPhone 4. The handset was an instant hit, however. Aside from standard praising, numerous professional photographers raved about the camera, which is arguably the best smartphone camera available today. In fact, the camera is so good that Guardian photojournalist Dan Chung has been using his iPhone 4S to capture the action at the London Olympics. With the help of some binoculars, a clip-on Schneider lens and the Snapseed processing app, Chung has been live-blogging the games and has captured some truly spectacular images. Examples of which can be found below.

When he isn’t testing the latest devices or apps, he can be found enjoying the sights and sounds of New York City.
