I may not have a top of the line Hasselblad with a Phase One back (I would accept donations though), but I do have some really very nice gear. Then why is it that 95% of my pictures are shot with a cell phone? The short answer is because it's always there. But aside from the ease of cell phone cameras, and the increasing quality, I think there's something more to it. My 5D Mark II is simply too good for capturing my everyday life. There's just something about bad low quality pictures. In many ways they seem to resonate more with that nostalgic part of the brain that swells with age.
I'm sure anyone whose into toy cameras knows what I'm talking about. But even Holgas aren't as convenient as cell phones, which can fill that same niche of taking pictures just for the nerdy fun. Hipstamatic on the iPhone takes great advantage of this. It has not only replaced my desire to carry around $5000 worth of camera gear everywhere I go, but also snuffed the life out of that pompous geeky little voice in my head that still held out respect for anything analog. Screw purity, fun is fun.
