    Default Do you print the pictures you had taken with your phones?

    I rarely see people developing pictures nowadays. The moment they have taken pictures with their phones, they will upload it to social media. In a way mobile phone cameras had killed the Camera industry. I think Go Pro cameras are the only relevant cameras these days. Majority of the pictures taken nowadays are from Mobile phones. Printing those pictures are possible but most pictures ends up in Facebook,Instagram, Tumblr and Twitter.

    I have tried printing out pictures taken out with phones once or twice. They were taken out for the purpose of including them in a collage which I made for a college friend of mine on the occasion of his birthday. What I feel is, when the pictures are printed in a smaller size, then they are fine. But if one tries to get a large version of the pictures, then they may end up getting blurred! So, in case you have to get a print out, then go for a smaller one with a higher mega pixel value.

    Yeah the quality of cameras mobile phones and tablets have can't compete with the quality of a stand alone camera. That is the reason why Go Pro cameras still made billions of dollars in an era where cameras are suppose to be dead. Mobile Cameras were still not as good but there are now mobile apps that can fix pictures and increase their quality.

    Yes, I agree with your point that you can never get the same quality of a good camera from a mobile camera. I have a Sony digicam and the images and videos are just perfect and I can't see the same perfection from my smartphone. Even though some models boast of high pixel quality digicam is unbeatable. Moreover, there are more user friendly options in a digicam.

    Yes, advent of camera phone certainly reduce the market for standalone cameras, but it can never replace high quality camera. But a smartphone is more convenient to carry and there is no separate place required to keep it. Hence nowadays people usually prefer to go for a good smartphone with quality camera instead of a standalone camera. But for those who really consider photography as a passion will always look for a good standalone camera I think.

    I print out pictures I take from my phone, by giving them as files to a professional photographer to print them out with the right paper, it is even possible to use an SD card and go to a SD printing booth to print out the pictures. But most people don't print out pictures anymore, they just make an e-collection or online collection of it.

    two things determine significantly the quality of digital pictures, the lens and the CMOS censor size. even the top end mobiles can not compete with digital cameras in terms of lens or the censor. a mobile, due to its compact size, has a very small CMOS censor, normally a few square mm, whereas a digital camera, even a basic one, has a much larger censor.
    so while a mobile photo may look quite good when shared on screen, when it is printed, particularly in a larger size, it becomes grainy and distorted.

    I wonder if the quality of mobile phone cameras will ever match the crisp crystal clear quality of camera taken phones. Even the Cameras from the 90's have better quality that mobile phone taken pictures.

    Sometimes it depends on the angle and the positioning of the phones camera to take a good picture, but iPhone, Samsung and Sony are really working on their cameras and they actually do wonders. But I agree, the camera quality for actual cameras is awesome and very detailed.

    It is true what you say, the social networking industry came to destroy other industry, or at least decrease, the camera industry and photos. Today everything is digital, and almost none of our information is on the physical plane. With respect to the photographs has been the same, it has declined in wealth this industry, on the one hand I think it's good because less paper is spent and that somehow helps the environment.

    That is true. I hardly take printouts of pictures. Why should we bother when we can easily save and retrieve it in various ways. I would prefer to save it in a portable harddisk which can even serve as an album for me. Digital photo frames are also becoming a trend these days where you can save a lot of pictures on it and use it as an animated photo.

    You are right nowadays people use to take photos and post it online. Most of the people never print anything out. It also saves a lot of trees in the process. Moreover, a softcopy of the images is easy to store, retrieve and it will last forever.

    I don't see any photo albums being sold at bookstores anymore. It is really a changing world. Many Photo developing shops in my area had closed down because no one is developing pictures anymore. People wanted everything to be directed to their social media accounts.

    I can't remember the last time my mum took pictures she wanted to print, while in the past she was always obsessed with taking pictures and printing them, we have big photo bags and now due to technology, it's all digital now.
