According to my grandmother, I'm the greatest photographer on the planet. Of course, my grandmother is also amazed at my ability to operate a toaster and a gas pump. My achievements are well-known among her friends at the croquet club — yes, these actually exist. Luckily, I've never had to actually prove my photography genius to them as my photos all reside on my iPhone where I can easily alter them using the built-in filters from Instagram. These croquet friends never actually see physical prints of my work. That could all be about to change.
As we have evolved as a society, so too has our technology. In this past decade you could have found a digital camera that accepted 3.5" floppy disks (can you believe they're still for sale?). Rewind another decade and you probably could have hunted down a Polaroid camera with relative ease for your immediate photographic desires. However, now the best cameras in our households are often the ones in our cell phones. The iPhone 4 boasts a 5-megapixel camera that takes pictures just as well as the Canon S90, which retails at over $350. The iPhone 4 screen itself is so high-resolution that even after a month of owning it, I still can't believe how sharp the images are.
