Why your Mobile Phone Camera Is Better Than A Film Camera
We are living in a world of technology lovers. How often do you see people out and about taking pictures with their mobile phones, making the most of their SanDisk 32GB Micro SD’s? It’s not just retro film camera’s that have become obsolete to all but a few thousands vintage loving hipsters – even digital cameras have fallen by the wayside, replaced by the far more convenient, slim-line mobile phones. And with the ability to pack your device with great memory cards boasting loads of GB’s, you can keep tonnes of memories on your phone.
And that’s what it’s all about – making memories, telling stories, communicating. One of the major fall-backs of a classic camera containing film in the place of your mobile phone camera is that you cannot share them far and wide! How often have you been getting ready for a night out, unable to decide what to wear and so send a picture to your best gal pal via your mobile device? It goes without saying that a film camera can’t help you in that department! Advocates for film camera’s – those vintage loving hipsters – argue that taking a photo with your mobile phone robs you of a tangible, paper photograph, which simply is not the case. Take your pictures, make your memories and pop out the SanDisk 32GBMicroSDcard to take it to a photo kiosk. They will print you tangible photographs that you can hold or display accordingly! Of course memory cards come in a few shapes and sizes so if you find that your memory card doesn’t fit, don’t worry; a lot of these venues allow you to send your photo’s via Bluetooth to then be printed off. Voilà – a pretty picture you can hold in your hand and you didn’t have to carry about a chunky little camera packed with film.
Again, we would have to deal with those pesky hipsters arguing that you can’t get the same “effects” or “quality” utilising your phone’s memory card as opposed to the likes of an old retro number, but this again can be counter argued. Depending on your mobile phone device, there are tonnes of ways to shoot your memories using the sepia, black & white or even “old movie” buttons. Some phones even include the ability to make your photo’s look like they have been shot by a fish-bowl lens or even the extremely cool instagram effect – a favourite of these hipsters. Don’t worry if your phone doesn’t include these effects – with the massive popularity of mobile phone applications these days, you will even find tonnes of Apps that allow your little phone to embody all the cool effects of a retro film camera, the best being appropriately named The Hipstamatic! Again it’s just a case of you popping out your card or Bluetoothing your pics and you can then see them printed out, and usually for a much lower price than an old film camera. Or alternatively, upload the photos stored on your mobile device to Facebook – that’s where we all want to put them anyway!
