The Snapshooter


When the iPhone first came out in 2007, not only did it reshape the smartphone industry by introducing and influencing many of the technological innovations we have been enjoying since, it also changed the way we capture and share life’s precious moments–what came to be known as iPhoneography, that’s mobile or instant photography–so it’s no surprise that the iPhone has become the most popular camera around the world.

It was the iPhone 3G that convinced me I won’t need other phones (I owned several Nokia smartphones prior) and tagged myself the iPhoneist – relying on it heavily to manage not only my day-to-day activities but to do photography as well, as it has become my camera of choice, having upgraded to the iPhone 4 and later 4S, then the iPhone 5, and recently the iPhone 5s.
