I still prefer to use cell phones for skipping across ponds. ... one more obnoxious piece of urban technology to leave behind when I want to photograph in peace. ... but now with wristwatch cameras imminent ... and camera rings next, no doubt....
Those should be a big hit at the Cannes Film Festival for proctologists!
It's a cool idea. I could see myself with one of those, especially if I could do standard print sizes.
Astonishingly expensive, but looking at the prototype they have concentrated on making the device pretty rather than functional. I can't help thinking a pinhole-camera kit would do far more for an individuals photographic understanding.
One could equip an entire (secondhand) temporary darkroom for the same price, without the pixels. As a deliberate anti-tech plan I may have to make a 'neg' carrier out of foamboard for my non-smart mobile, as a proof of anti-hipsterdom.
Hmmmm, this sounds like I'm a grumpy-old-man (TM). . . what is one supposed to say? Something about children and front-gardens I think.
This is very cool and clever. Now a new generation can take their pictures on a phone, enlarge and develop them, then they can scan their prints and post them to facebook! ;-)
The funniest old fart was a drummer in 80's rock band. I'm paraphrasing him, but he said "When I was in a band, there were no drum machines. Kids have it too easy today". I'm sure he walked 50 mines in to snow on his knees to go drum also.
