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?

I was just making a point. I know you don't want the logo.

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