Great Gig Pics From iPhone Cameras



Sigur Ros by richjm

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again now: the iPhone camera is technically rubbish, but I’m endlessly impressed by the ingenuity and creativity people show with it.

This morning I browsed around Flickr for images of gigs and concerts taken with iPhones; there are some really atmospheric shots to be found.

Still, I’d stay away from the mosh pit if I were you. Or keep your iPhone in a zip-up pocket.

    That BRMC photo is pimp. I was there and she totally captured that moment. She is an iPhone camera ninja.

    You state that “the iPhone camera is technically rubbish” and then you show photos taken from iPhone cameras that prove the opposite of what you claim.
