On article Is the snapshot dead? (70 comments in total)

When I see old snapshots, they make me smile. Why? Not because of the technical proficiency with which they were taken, but because of the glimpse into a bygone era. The stiffly posed subjects, imperfect lighting and composition don't matter. Those images were captured by average people using (sub) average equipment. Should future generations come across today's images (hopefully printed, not erased digital-only media) will they enjoy the same window into our daily lives? Only if we choose to capture life, as much as we attempt to create art. Both can endure, if preserved.

Is #7 the result of a catadioptric lens? Or heavy smoking?

Are there phone-to-retail-store apps so one can pick up prints in an hour? It would need to be a local shop, of course, or a multi-location outfit.

On article Do mobile photographers want to print more? (3 comments in total)

Photo printing is just beginning to grow at retail. Kiosks which are equipped for Apple (via cable) and micro SD slots for other phones seem to be popular. Dedicated cables for BB and Android phones and tablets are popular also. We're seeing triple-digit growth from mobile devices (big declines from traditional cameras, however). We're releasing a mobile printing app soon also.
