Join the Q: Mobile Phones and Rainbows

When I went to the supermarket the other week, I admired the quality of my mum's smartphone camera in comparison with the camera on my 14 year old mobile phone. A couple of weeks after that I found myself enjoying a superb rainbow, but without a camera to hand other than my 25-pixel-ish mobile phone one. I took a photo anyway.

My phone was at the forefront of technology back in 2004, and could even access 'the internet' in those days (aka ten tiny webpages which only had the same number of pixels as the phone screen). However, its ability to connect and send pictures to other devices is long gone. The best I can do is take a photo of the photo to share it with you.


By way of comparison, I was lucky enough to see another rainbow recently, so I took a photo with my up to date camera (boasting 16 megapixels per image instead of the 0.02 megapixels that my phone can manage). That camera is very easy to use when it comes to transferring photos to other devices, so I have shared that with you as well.

I leave it to you to decide which you prefer1! smiley - rainbow

1I like the phone one best, because I'm amazed the little lens managed to capture the rainbow at all!
