Magic Picture-Making Machine

We got off easy last winter, but we’re paying for it spades this year. Snow, ice, cold—you name it. (Will I miss this when we uproot and head to Vancouver in a few weeks? We will see.)  Having finally laid my poor 3GS to rest, I gave my film cameras and DSLR a break and quickly snapped a few wintery photos one recent afternoon at my in-laws’ cabin using my shiny new iPhone 5, basking in its eight megapixel glory.

Sure the images are a little soft, and if I was really serious about taking photos that afternoon I would have pulled out a DSLR or some medium format film. But at least as long as that new iPhone smell lasts, I think I’ll still be in awe that my current phone produces nearly double the megapixels that my first (clunky, expensive, etc.) digital camera could. See Clarke’s Third Law.
