Should I wait for the next iPhone to be released, or buy a 4S right now?

I have never owned a smartphone, though I do have an iPad. Over the winter, I decided to finally take the plunge and buy an iPhone....but I figured I should wait until the next one is released. Now that it seems the release won't happen until at least the fall, I'm getting impatient!
One of the main reasons I want an iPhone is because of the camera - I want a high quality camera built into my phone so that I can take good photos/videos of my little one while we're out and about. I also love the apps on my iPad so it makes sense to have a phone that is compatible.
I just don't know whether to wait for the new one now. Are there likely to be major advances in the new release? Or will it be just like the 4S with a few minor improvements?
I'm also unsure of the price difference between the 4S and the new iPhone. In Canada, what is generally the price of a new version iPhone when purchased on a 3-year contract with Rogers or Telus? Is it a lot more than if I got the older 4S right now?
Thanks for any advice!
