Digital camera photography was a lot different 10 years ago. We dug the original iPhone out and shot some pics around New York City.
The original iPhone had a basic camera, with no zoom, flash or any editing features.
Indoor shots...well, this is the Ace Hotel looking like a misty dream sequence.
Flowers by the Ace Hotel lobby.
My fancy coffee is lacking some detail. The original iPhone camera didn't have HDR for helping balance contrast.
No selfie camera (which was introduced on the iPhone 4), so I tried my best with the rear camera.
This ended up looking like a scene from "Eyes Wide Shut." Photos in dim rooms are rough.
Outdoor shots in decent light fare a bit better.
Ornaments and lights.
A shot of the Empire State Building, and I can't zoom in further.
Close-up shots don't fare well, since the 2007 iPhone had no focus functions.
Bonus: our Flatiron district looks like the 1970s.
Monkey shot: that fur detail is awfully fuzzy.
Lynn La looks OK, though!
New York at night. Did we really take phone photos like this 10 years ago?
The same shot, mostly, taken with an iPhone 7 Plus with no flash. What a difference 10 years makes.
