Another reason to shout the praises of the iPhone is that sturdy phrase “the best camera is the one you have with you.” Driving through stop and go traffic in any city means a fair amount of…stop. So as not to forfeit shooting opportunities, I love being able to witness tiny slices of life in those seconds before the light turns green. As the quality of the camera in the iPhone improves I have been able to rely on the files to be large enough and sharp enough to hold up well on the web.
Though I try to always have a ‘real’ camera with me when I go out, I never DON’T have my phone. And indeed, the best camera is the one I have with me.
