So it’s Black Friday and I’m looking at the deals at my local camera shop. Having an attack of G.A.S. (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) will be familiar to anyone who loves cameras, and though I don’t ‘need’ another camera, I can’t help imagining how a new camera would make me a happier and better photographer.
Last weekend though I was out for a short walk and had left my camera at home. I was walking with a friend I hadn’t seen for a while and I wanted to focus on him and catching up on each other. It was a beautiful day, and we were in a beautiful place, so I couldn’t resist taking a few images with my iPhone (6S plus), and it didn’t get in the way of our conversation. Just raise the phone and snap.
Back home I looked at the images and wondered if I missed anything by not having my camera. In good conditions the quality of the JPGs is really rather good, and I gather the newer phones are even better. See what you think:
