Chase Jarvis has long preached that the best camera is the one you have with you. It’s hard to argue that point. It is really hard to take a photograph without a camera. Chase has been advocating the iphone camera for sharing and exploring images around you. It’s actually not a bad little system. I take SOME pics with my iphone here and there, but I certainly forget about using it as a serious artistic tool and it ends up being a "snapshot tool".

Joe Edelman even mentioned on a recent LightSource Podcast over at StudioLighting.net that he even uses his iphone photos for backgrounds in high-res compositions. I find that amazing and I’m curious to see one of these style images full size (sounds like a weekend test project to me.)
If you haven’t heard from one of the million sources already publishing it, Chase released a new iphone app today that coincides with the announcement of a new photo community, bestcamera.com and an iphone photo book, The Best Camera Is The One That's With You: iPhone Photography by Chase Jarvis (Voices That Matter)
One of the big things about the best camera iphone app that interest me is the single button upload to a bunch of sites (does it use flickr too? If not, why not? I hope it’s not because flickr could be viewed as a competitor for bestcamera.com!)
I guess I wasn't thinking at first when I posted this. Flickr lets you upload photos via email, which is how you can post to flickr from this app.
