Let me tell you how technologically behind the times I am: my phone is 7+ years old, so its camera remains beyond terrible. I don't know exactly, but it's probably something like 2 or 3 megapixels! Hence my still owning a separate P&S camera. Which is even older than the phone, by the way!
I generally keep things until they break rather than upgrading constantly, so tend to have much older tech than most people. Hell, I only got a new laptop a year or two ago because the old one finally died after about 8 years faithful service. I'll keep the current one until it dies too. Another example: I replaced my 10 year old car last month because it needed an engine stripdown to fix a problem, and it wasn't worth doing that. It doesn't bother me to have outdated stuff as long as it still does what I want it to. When I do get round to getting something new, I tend to buy something nice. It's just that I don't buy it unless what it's replacing is beyond redemption.
Having said all that, I think even my old P&S is better than using a modern phone camera for this kind of snap, if only because it can sit somewhere stable. If there is decent lighting, it takes decent photos; I just don't get good light in that room from about late September until about March, and sadly there's nowhere else in the house with a ledge the right kind of distance to take a full-length pic.
My cell (a stupid phone) is about the same age. And I still have a non-flat TV (tube TV?). How about that?
You and me both! I still have my ancient (10-12 years old) CRT Sony WEGA widescreen TV. Weighs a ton, only 36", and it cost a small fortune when I bought it... but I still think its picture quality is superior to many modern flatscreen TVs. It did go through a bad patch about a year or two ago where it developed a temporary flicker (I think the tubes lost alignment), but it self-corrected after a couple of months and is now going strong again! I'll keep it until its natural end, I think.
Tough colour to pick for a monochrome challenge. It might not be quite monochrome, technically, but it's close enough for me. Nice one!
