This weekend, there are a lot of fireworks celebrations here in the US. Many of us will be capturing photos with our iPhones as our main camera. A couple of years ago, I was able to capture okay fireworks images with the inferior camera of my iPhone 2G (see above). This year, I’m looking to capture much better ones with the far superior camera of my iPhone 4.

TUAW – The Unofficial Apple Weblog recently posted a great blog post on how to get better fireworks photos with your iPhone. If you’re out shooting the holiday with your phone, it’s an essential read.
