    Is anyone into cellphone photography? Granted its probably the lowest form of picture-taking, but some people, well that i know anyways only ever take pictures with there phones. I've never really bothered other than doing a few contests online, the last one i did and have been doing almost on a daily basis is for an arby's contest called snap and drive. basically they have a challenge ever day and one photo is selected and you win a new cell phone. have you guys ever thought of doing a little like cellphone daily contest, like for fun, on this forum. like each day there is a theme or thing someone picks and just have one person who picks a winner, then the next day they get to choose the theme or subject or something like that? I noticed the fight club thread for 5 photos in 1 hour, but does something like that exist on this site, or even anything to do with cellphone photography? I'm new here so I'm still working my way around the forums checking out new stuff, but i didnt really see anything like that other than the fight club thing.

    While at a flea market, there was a beautiful rainbow around the sun from some thin misty clouds overhead. I didn't have a proper camera with me, but I had my girlfriend's phone, so I snapped a picture. Here's the result:

    Turned out quite beautiful..

    no kidding, that's an amazing photograph!! i do the same thing, sometimes i dont have a camera on me and i just cant not take a picture of something, well other than online contests like the ones i was talking about. but that is truly amazing shot, it's a shame that you didnt have an awesome camera with you. what kind of cell do you have?

    Amazing? It's 160x120, lol

    Here's one I took with my HTC Touch Diamond just because I couldn't believe what I saw while in the drive through at Culvers...

    3.2 Megapixels on hand at any given moment is pretty nice to capture things that may have otherwise been missed.

    Yes folks, flowers in the bumper... very much alive.

    wow, that's more than decent res. looks like a cheap p.a.s digital. my cell phone is kinda old so it doesnt take photos like that, im trying to win the sony ericsson, i think it's 3.2 MP as well.

    this is the only photo i can find from my camera i have on my computer, there is something about it that the focus just looks soft, my friend has an ericsson and it seems so much sharper, maybe its the lens or something?

    With the heat here, I'd be afraid to leave my gear in the car without the AC running... 90% of the time, my phone is the only "camera" I have on me.

    If I was allowed to have one at work, I'd probably carry a small P&S.

    It's my girlfriend's phone, actually. A little red Samsung prepaid AT&T GoPhone. Don't know the model. I'm not a big cell phone user. Give me a landline any day. Living out where there's little to no signal has that effect. XD



    And wait.. Win a phone.. There's a cell phone picture contest? *goes to look*

    EDIT: It's an AT&T Samsung a127 GoPhone.
