Your Mobile Phone Camera Doesn't Matter

All these rantings and ravings on the internet, saying that someone's favorite camera is the only good one, and all the rest are junk.  I've decided that this is like a bunch of kids saying that their dad's car is faster than the next kid's dad's car.  Silly.  Even if the car could do 110 mph, it's unlikely the dad or the kid would ever be in the car going that fast.

Mobile phone cameras.  It's frustrating to read all this stuff about people saying cameras are good, or not, or work well, or not - when all the time, these same people haven't got a clue about photography, or how to get the most out of their camera - let alone, basic photography stuff like "composition".  Does it matter if the camera has a high-tech lens or a piece of plastic, when the photographer moves the phone around simply in trying to push whatever it is that takes the picture - and then blames the phone, when the image is blurry.

There was a discussion on G+ recently about the merits of several cameras - but when it came down to asking those participants to post photos they had taken themselves, with a phone camera, not one of them would do so.  ...and when I went to their home pages on G+ to look at their photos, the images were pretty awful.  


The link below will get a lot of people angry and upset, as everyone "knows" that if they spend more on a camera, they will get better photographs.....   except that this is nonsense.  Photographs are made by PEOPLE, not by cameras.  The camera is just a tool, like a chisel.  You don't create a beautiful wood carving by buying better chisels, you LEARN how YOU can do so.

It's a fun article.  Read it anyway.  If you really want to learn how to take better mobile phone photographs, first learn what makes a photograph better, and it's not the toys/tools we use - it's YOU.

Nice Linux command cheat sheet. One of the shortcuts I use most often is CTRL r, which surprisingly sometimes even experienced Linux users don't know about.

Which commands/shortcuts do you use mostly?

The PC era is a lie
I don't understand what people mean when they say "The PC era". PCs aren't going away. Users are simply consuming more content on mobile devices.

You're not going to do serious calculations, designing, data entry, maintenance programming, or development on a phone or tablet. You need a bigger processor with more power and a comfortable, ergonomically correct workstation for anything other than playing a game, social media, or reading.

Using a mobile device to type this message is inefficient at best considering I can type at speeds of 110WPM. Writing and compiling an application would be futile and time consuming. Creating anything except quick updates on a mobile device is difficult.

Microsoft Windows may be going away but the PC is not. That is simply Apple marketing trying to convince you to buy more iPads. If you want to create something, buy a PC. My personal choice is to install Linux and I keep virtual machines with Mac as well as Windows 7 and 8. However windows 8 is not very good for creating much of anything as they have adopted the tablet interface on their workstations.

There is no "PC era". If you think you've passed the "PC era", you're just doing less "productivity" tasks.. which is a marketing term that originated on iOS and is probably worth another post on its own.
