I realize that I have not posted for some time. When there is misery and pain at work, there is a resultant fall off in blog luminosity.
Last night, however, I join the elegant Rumi san and some friends to release baby turtles. This is always the best. I take my super duper Nikon and my lowest light lens. It is dusk and the sun has plunged dramatically into the East China Sea.
This is a baby turtle incubator. I set the highest aperture, the lowest shutter speed, high ISO and this is what I get.
I take a similar shot with my IPhone. This is what I get.
Here is a movie that Wilco made on his phone.
So you can still take great specialized photos with a DSLR, er like depth of field change, macro, extreme distance, but frankly for everything else the IPhone wins.
