iPhone Galaga

After the art show last night I stopped by Rooster Fish for a drink, and lo and behold they had an old schol Galaga machine! Matt couldn’t resist playing and I couldn’t resist taking pictures. I just loved how all the light and color streaks came out in these, I thought they looked pretty neat. I know a lot of people hate the camera on the original and 3G iPhones, but I think there’s something charming about all of the noise and it’s lack of sophistication.

Also, did youknow that Galaga is 30 years old this year? Crazy, huh?

    yeah the way the G3 camera takes in light makes some really cool effects. on a cloudless bright sunny day, point the camera at the sun but catch a bit of the horizon as well and it makes an almost moonlit night scene. always fun to play with

    These pictures are exciting. It inspires me to think of a game where the aim is not to dodge the rain of bullets but rather to collect as many as possible.

    I completely agree… there is something charming about the iPhone’s camera. I think with the filters / apps you can get (camerabag / toycamera / polarize etc) make it something special.

    Sure there are better cameraphones out there… but with the apps… the iPhone becomes something special indeed.
