I personally think instagram is the bane of photographers everywhere. Any goofball with an app and an iphone tries to look arty with a filter. It takes some of the skill and fidelity out of capturing things with film or a high end digital camera.
But than again art isn’t about the methods, but the result and like them or not these photos do look spiffy. The Makers of Instagram have released a neat looking iphone case, which makes your phone look like the camera it is mimicking. The case is more than just a pretty face though because it also comes with a tripod adapter and a slot in the case to attach it. For $39.95 the case would have to be something special. only time will tell if it lives up to the price tag.
