iPhone Camera ‘Effect’

Something I didn’t know about iPhone’s camera (and probably most camera-phones in general?):

In typical cameras, the sensor captures the scenery all at once and the image is exposed (whether on film or digitally).  But the CMOS sensors on iPhones doesn’t do that – instead it scans from left to right. So if you use it to take something that is moving rapidly (such as the propeller below), you get a warped result:
