    Amusing, but ignorant

    Here's a little item which you may find amusing:

    http://www.iphonesavior.com/2012/03/...hone-case.html

    The bit that nearly made me choke on my toast was where the author dismissed Leica as "the popular war-time point and shoot".

    Enjoy.

    Cheers, Peter.

    It's like putting foot powder on a prosthetic foot. It's pointless but makes the person feel good pretending to have the real thing.

    Wait a second... Snapping digi-pics with an iPhone is art, now? ...and this "art" is, somehow, cool? That's the funniest thing I've heard all week!

    It's probably away for Digital photographers to look like they're shooting with film. The chimping gives them away

    Would I be banished if I bought one of these? I'm a Barnack shooter in real life.









    On second thought, looking at the pictures here, I've changed my mind ...

    Great Idea to hide an inferior tool. I am sure the inventor will sell quiet a few of these.

    Bloddy ridiculous, the camera lens is in the lower right hand corner of the "Leica" when you are taking pictures even.

    I hope we get a massive solar flare in 2012/2013, which creates a massive EMP, which, in turn, causes massive global data-loss and rid the world of most crappy mobile-phone photos. (any sensible digital photographer would have backups of their work anyway, the rest can suffer ).

    Another way to hide the iPhone's shocking lack of prowess at making an actual phone call...

    So they made a casing for an Iphone to mimic a Leica? What do you do when the phone rings? Hold the camera to your ear?
    The only way I use my cellphone camera (not an aye-phone, btw) is for when I am going to do the grosseries. We have a chalkboard in the kitchen. A quick snapshot is just enough. "the art of iPhoneography" is that a real word? iPhoneography? And printing an inferiour (what is it with Iphone, 5MP?) picture on your desktop printer is called Inkjetotype?
    I agree about the artform though. To create something that looks good with limited material IS truely art. #cynical mode off#
