I have had a digital camera since 2002 - my first was a Sony DSC-85 - 4.2 megapixels. Seems quaint now, with 15 + megapixels cameras commonplace. Now I just use my iPhone 4, mainly because I have it with me all the time. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of a stand-alone digital camera, but until my ship comes in, the pictures here will all be taken with the iPhone, although I may include some of my favorite older shots taken with the Sony. I plan to scan a googleplex of old photographs - bit by bit, it's all going to the cloud.
Now if my ship did come in, I would not hesitate to get a specialized digital SLR with as much stuff as I could afford. But as David Pogue, Technology writer for the New York Times observes - "five megapixels is plenty for prints up to smallish poster size." You can read his story here.
Don't get me wrong, a talented professional who knows who to get the most out of a good digital SLR can do amazing things. I have been following the beautiful photography of Sean McCormick, from Alberta, Canada, for years now - he is now on Flickr. Check him out for inspiration if you have the time. Well worth a visit.
This is just some experimenting for now.
The designer of this template used jQuery + the Galleria plugin, along with the 960 Grid Framework. All of the pictures seen here were taken with an iPhone 4 or the now creaky Sony DSC-85 - hey it does have a Zeiss lens!
