Why do people do this?

Why do so many people insist on capturing precious family moments on a phone. The pictures look terrible! They are fuzzy, dark or washed out and very low quality. I understand if it was time to time, 'oh shoot I need a picture of this and don't have the real camera!' but it seems to me it is everything anymore. My facebook feed is filled with fuzzy, crappy family pictures that could have been taken with a cheap point and shoot camera and looked better. Why not just buy a real camera? Dang, cost less than the phone!

  • My phone takes awesome pictures. I have even entered some of my pictures into contests with our local paper and won twice.

  • no, they usually say mobile upload but maybe they are...? Either way it's kind of sad imo. I would hate to have my kids growing up and me not getting goof picture of it. They grow so fast.

  • It is probably more user error than the actual camera. People don't know how to take a picture.

    Instagram is an app that adds crappy filters to photos to make them look worse than they did when they were taken, because people think it makes them "artsy". A lot of phones have similar filters built in. Aside from that, just because you have a camera, doesn't mean you know how to use it. People who take bad pics on phones will take bad pics with cameras, too.

  • Because you almost always have your phone one you and those moments happen so fast. You may not have camera except your phone at that time and capturing a not so great photo is better then not capturing the moment! \

    Although sometimes I think people worry to much about capturing the moment then enjoying it!
