    I've seen photoshop filters that will achieve this effect... Let me try something.

    most old cameras take by far better images.

    this looks like a print, put on a very dirty scanner with lots of dust, mud and sand on it.

    or someone played with photoshop.

    definitely photoshop. He put the capricorns thing in with photoshop...so it probably wasn't too hard to use some sort of plugin or something to make the picture look crappy.

    Maybe try adding some noise and messing with the contrast and colors a bit in photoshop?

    Just find a "grungy" texture, place it as the top layer and set it to Overlay.

    Taken with a Canon and photoshopped with PS v.7.0.

    Its not what I would call a "quality" pic under any circumstance.
