Hello everyone! In this post you will realize how spammy I am on snapchat and you will also realize exactly why I delete snapchat whenever my college kicks up again! I create the most ridiculous stories and waste quite a bit of time! Anyway, that’s not the story for today! The story for today is about my camera.
As you can see, it’s a really old camera- 8.1 megapixels is something you see on an average phone, cameras are meant to be much better. So why is this camera out here in 2016 when it apparently belongs to the era of 2007? It’s because its old that no one has tried to throw it out yet (that and, everyone is busy using their phone’s camera instead). I’ve had it with me for at least five years, the last two had the camera stuffed in my closet, untouched. I took it out just last week since I’ve been noticing for quite a few months that the camera lens of my iPhone has some sort of defect in it that can be found on almost every single picture taken.
For a photography-enthusiast like me, it wasn’t long before I got extremely annoyed, especially when it came to taking pictures with a white background, causing it to become even more glaringly obvious. I found myself rejecting a lot of perfectly good photos- I couldn’t possibly use them on the blog! A replacement had to be found! At first I was thinking about getting a new phone but that doesn’t seem to be happening any time soon so I decided to make do with what I already had. Carl the camera was 8.1 megapixels, not much of a loss compared to the iPhone and it could work perfectly with taking pictures of my projects and art- things that would have a white background. Of course that doesn’t mean my iPhone is out of business!
