    Well I sort of gave up the photography thing for a while there, sold all my gear etc (stuck for cash and had to take drastic action :lol: among other reasons)

    Whenever I've needed to take a photo I've been using my Iphone and it's pathetic :thumbdown: so so so so bad. It's like going back in time when digital cameras just came out.

    Feeling the need for anything photography I even developed 2 rolls of FP4 that I used in my little FED4 today, and it felt good. The negs look ok but my scanner packed in so I can't even get a proper look. :lol:

    Anyway I'm coming back but I'm not going near digital (at the exposure stage ). Plan on buying an F100 & an F5 and just have fun with both B&W and Colour. Might even get properly into the whole darkroom thing rather than just developing the negs.

    Sorry, lol, just a rant & a rave post - we're all allowed one right? ;)

    The iPhone seems to be 'ok' in daylight.. I've only really used it in low light conditions which it really struggles with.

    Here's a quick snap (and I mean a snap) in daylight:

    And a snap in the shed (cleaned up a little in PS)

    I would have just expected better considering what most phones are capable of nowadays. Doubt i'll be using the iPhone for street photography.. it's like a fashion accessory I'd rather be seen without.
