            Or just get a flip phone for emergencies and actually appreciate life in the moment.
            Why do you need pictures anyways? Is your memory that shitty?

              why don’t you leave your mom’s basement, scrote? Even back in the days people would bring their cameras with them when they were taking trips and still enjoy the moment, the camera is there to snap take a pic and not worry about the quality of it being shit. Stop being a stingy poorscrote, you can’t even freaking cope and I can smell your dirty diapers from here.

      This might come to a surprise to you, but, there’s an outside world with many things worth keeping on a photograph. And normies like keeping things on photographs.
      So OEMs market things to take photographs.

                  I’m not the photo taking type but my freinds who are take photos of everyday things such as shop fronts, freinds, hobby projects etc.

                  It doesnt need to be everyday but having a camera on you at all times just in case is great. I’m not carrying a whole extra bag for a spontaneous photo every couple weeks.

                just get a mid-range.

                and no, they’re not expensive; just look in the right places and they’re dirt cheap if bought used. Doesn’t fit the camera’s because proprietary? Just get an adapter lmao

      Why do people take photos? Because your memory doesn’t come anywhere close and sharing with people is good and has benefits. Some people, like myself, place value in that.

        Your memory actually has infinite more value than a picture

        A picture captures a single moment of light and ideas are inferred from your perception of the picture

        Your memory captures time, full events, senses, emotions, etc

        Sharing stories from personal experience is a lot more intimate

      Because camera is literally the only thing that differs a cheap phone from expensive one. Otherwise they are completely identical for everyday practical purposes, unless you’re into playing shitty mobile COD ripoffs.

      When I have to take pictures for a customers website I don’t even bother bringing my DSLR anymore. With my phone on a tripod in 99% of applications the end result will be as good. I only bring my Canon if I know I’ll have to take really low light pictures or if the pictures are destined to be printed on a high scale

      Because having a good camera was a huge selling point 6-7 years ago
      Cameras on phones finally went from being a piece of trash to being viable as your only camera you owned.
      Of course now that cell phones have completely stagnated, and nobody has given a flying fuck in the last 3 years, they are grasping at any straw they can to pull in sales.

      It’s the only real feature that separates the functionality of a low-end phone from a flagship. I mean, what do people use their phones for? Texts/calls, web, facebook, music, youtube. All shit that you can do on bargain bin phones no problem.
      Only real difference is having a 6 trillion megapixel camera. And they lock that feature behind a bunch of other bullshit that people don’t care about as a form of price structuring to coerce people into shelling out for thousand dollar meme-phones.
