I got a fancy new smartphone for Christmas so my mobile game has now been upped. These are from a Nokia Lumia 800. I’m not a big camera tech guy, and lens talk is the most boring thing in the world but this has really blown me away so far. It has a Carl Zeiss lens which I guess is something but not really to me. 
I’m currently writing my thesis on Stephen Shore and the concept of the everyday and I’m just winding up the last chapter with what it means to photography today. I definitely think camera phones are this generations equivalent of the emergence of colour photography. It’ll take a while for it to gain respect in the right circles, but once it does, there’ll be no turning back. The constant ability to shoot and to incorporate high-end photography equipment into everyday objects such as phones is just too big of a dynamic change to not make a lasting impact. I’ve been shooting phone stuff for a couple years now but this kind of quality takes it to a new level. I’m really looking forward to developing something further with this phone.
