In the park, originally uploaded by Jonne Naarala.

I recently bought iPhone 4 and it seems to change my photographic habits quite a bit.

I hated mobile phone cameras before this. I always wanted to have high quality photos and felt that mobile phone cameras are not for that. With the iPhone I discovered snap-shooting again. The instant feelings and their recording are the keywords when using my iPhone as a camera. I know that there are many other mobile phones having much better cameras (iPhone has only a 5 mpix camera) but more mpix are not needed for the use I am going for.

One big thing are the fantastic apps made for iPhone. Instagram was the first one I downloaded and it is so brilliant one. Second one was Hipstamatic which I have to explore more in the near future. And yesterday I got Camera+ which has some nice features for the “normal” shooting. Instagram and Hipstamatic are more for the vintage results.

All of those apps are so cool because you can instantaneously share your photos in Flickr, Twitter, Facebook, and other services. Snap a photo, edit it in the phone, and share. That’s it!

Lastly I’d like to apologize that I have been absent from this blog for a while. But I got the iPhone, and it is so much fun that you easily forget other things…


  1. Jonne: Welcome to my world. Now you know why I’ve been neglecting my big camera for so long.

    In time it will sort itself out: you’ll use all of your cameras when appropriate but I agree, the iPhone is so much fun to fool around with it’s tough to let go of.

  2. Jonne: I’ve only had a cell phone of any kind for two years. Year 1 was iPhone 3G, year 2 is iPhone 4 with 3G going to granddaughter. Anne has a 4 too and we both love them.

    Next for you: iPad! 😉

  3. You say there are other cell phones with better cameras. I don’t know of any here in Canada. I got a cell phone, and the photos are garbage, garbage at 3mp or something. I wish I could afford an Iphone, simply for the camera. There are many times when if I pull out my big camera I will be asked to put it away because there is no photography allowed, but people with cell phones will be snapping away and no one commenting.

    Don’t even get me started on how angry I get if someone pulls out a cell phone in the change room, I mean after all how do I know you aren’t taking a picture, and just pretending to text.

    Sorry for the side track there, glad you like your new iphone!

  4. That’s super cool my friend, the quality of the images was made clear by another local friend. The great quality of the iphone camera is just another feature why having a smart phone is becoming a mainstay in today’s world. I hope to look forward to more wonderful shots from you and your family. I hope all is well in your world and I’ll look forward to more.
