Just What I SeeEn Flickr
I won’t be the one to advise you to replace your digital SLR with the integrated camera of the iPhone but of course, the photographs by Greg Schmigel taken with a first generation iPhone are the tangible proof that it doesn’t take much more than talent to get good images.
On the website Just What I See, Greg portrays, sometimes in colour and sometimes in black and white, the world around him that we tend to pass unnoticed next to all those things that are not less interesting because they are everyday things. For this task, the photographer turns the defects of the camera of Apple’s phone (and virtually any mobile) into virtues, forgetting any technical aspect to focus on what is in front of him and taking advantage of its small size to capture the “urban fauna” without attracting his attention.
Both the first iPhone and the new 3G model incorporate the same 2-megapixel camera capable of providing images of
1440×1080 pixels 1200×1600 pixels , more than enough to make copies on 10 x 5 paper . The curious thing about this case is that even though it is much lower than the cameras of other mobiles such as Nokia’s N95, iPhone users are particularly active, Flickr being the most obvious proof.
