Getting back to photography 📸 (#84)

Ah, photography… I’ve got a complicated relationship with it, from working professionally, to it being an expensive hobby. And then there’s mobile photography mucking things up, too.

This is how the 84th issue of Switch to iPad starts:

I’ve been bringing my camera, a Ricoh GRIII, with me these past couple of weeks. You didn’t expect me to take photos with my iPads, right? I rarely shoot with my iPhone either, especially not now that I’ve downgraded from the iPhone 13 Pro, to the iPhone 13 mini. The cameras on all (modern) iPhone models are great, but it’s not the same as taking photos with a dedicated device. Currently, my favorite is the Ricoh GRIII, but there are plenty of other great options out there.

Anyway, I’ve been bringing the dedicated camera with me regularly recently, as I said, and I love it. What I don’t love is interacting with the camera when it comes to actually getting the photos onto a computing device. That’s where the iPhone camera truly shines because everything just syncs. With my Ricoh GRIII, or any other camera I’ve got access to, not so much.

Boy, is that annoying. Let’s talk a bit about where I’m at, with these things.
