A while ago I did a post with the headline “iPhone / Instagram versus Canon”.
My conclusion was that Instagram can’t compete with the Canon Mark II in picture quality (of course), but that the best camera is the one you have with you. And there is the phone camera + Instagram unbeatable in terms of accessibility. But also, as said in the earlier post even if the Instagram photos are limited when it comes to print, the qulity is largely a matter of size actually. You can’t enlarge an image taken directly from Instagram and expect much more than grain. What you can do is to print it in the saved size though, and get a satisfactory results, at least a result that can compare with the old-time Polaroid picture. And that is good enough in this context.
There are several print services out there that offers opportunity to get your photos printed and sent home by mail today. Almost like old times when we sent in our films for developing. Only that nowadays we have seen the images before they are sent home.
Anyway, the printing service who made these photos is called Printic. Fast service, a bit thin paper but nice quality.
UPDATE:I just realized that since I got reduced ” try out” price on this first bacth I got a little misleading idea of Printic‘s prices. $1 per copy is not a super price. But on the other hand there is no shipping costs.
Had a visit in the studio the other day by this girl, with freinds.
