Best Camera – According to Chase Jarvis

Chase Jarvis has long preached that the best camera is the one you have with you. It’s hard to argue that point. It is really hard to take a photograph without a camera. Chase has been advocating the iphone camera for sharing and exploring images around you. It’s actually not a bad little system. I take SOME pics with my iphone here and there, but I certainly forget about using it as a serious artistic tool and it ends up being a "snapshot tool".

Joe Edelman even mentioned on a recent LightSource Podcast over at StudioLighting.net that he even uses his iphone photos for backgrounds in high-res compositions. I find that amazing and I’m curious to see one of these style images full size (sounds like a weekend test project to me.)

If you haven’t heard from one of the million sources already publishing it, Chase released a new iphone app today that coincides with the announcement of a new photo community, bestcamera.com and an iphone photo book, The Best Camera Is The One That's With You: iPhone Photography by Chase Jarvis (Voices That Matter)

One of the big things about the best camera iphone app that interest me is the single button upload to a bunch of sites (does it use flickr too? If not, why not? I hope it’s not because flickr could be viewed as a competitor for bestcamera.com!)
