Mobile phones are fun
3

Today I went to a park, and would not have been good to bring expensive gear. I had my phone, and had lots of fun. This is an iPhone 8. I noticed how if you work with the limitations, they make a fine free camera (I’d have a phone anyway) and sometimes they even have unique abilities. For example, these rooms are maybe 1 inch tall. My 21 or 35mm would have had unbearable bokeh or require the Iris center be 1 inch above ground instead of 2 mm into the ground, completely different angles.

Last wish? -IPhone 8 who knows with what settings #2

Won’t win any Challenge. Won’t pass a pixel peak well. Won’t win bokeh accolades. But pure fun and from an angle my ILCE would not have been able to get.

I say the phone camera unique shape and usability is one tool that complements my ILCE very well.

Do you have fun with you phone or accept it as another tool vs a replacement? What’s your relationship with the little camera mates?
