Because as fun as it is to share iPhone photos conveniently on Instagram, that can’t be my only photography: I also need some photos that won’t look like shit when I look back on them in the future.
That’s another reason I bought the GX1, and those photos look great on the retina screens. My wife and I both reach for the GX1 so much that we need another one — because I always want to take it with me.
The days I do end up taking the GX1 with me are the days when we are stuck with mostly unuseable images of our daughter. Retina screens aren’t the only reason, part of it is just the fact the iPhone pictures are always too grainy for my taste.
