phone camera is still science fiction


Every now and then, I have to pause a little when I realize that almost all of my photographs this year were taken with a cell phone. Many (most?) of the photos would have never happened otherwise - I'd grow tired of lugging out a DSLR and all that entails. But because a good-enough-camera is in my phone, in my pocket all of the time, I'm documenting stuff that would have gone forgotten otherwise. That's worth far more to me than pixels and f-stops.

Being able to take decent-quality photos, process them on my phone, and post them to my website in real time?

Science fiction.
