alessiolr Let's talk @instagram for a second.
The purists think it should all be done on mobile. Some people use DSLRs. I use a mix of the two. For me it's about creating something with whatever tools I have at my disposal and what would do the job best. Sure, a DSLR isn't very 'insta', and neither are desktop editing tools. But the camera on smartphones these days are pretty incredible, as are their editing apps.
While there is no right or wrong answer, what do you use? And which way do you think is the best way?

  •   ming081 Got a Minolta X-300 Come and check out my pics 3d
  •   alessiolr @ming081 rad! I'll take a peek now. 3d
  •   jsovs @alessiolr I get such great equipment access from school that when I go to use my own personal camera now I know it's just not enough! I'm buying a better one after graduation but it's killing me not to have it now 3d
  •   capturethis1 Great 3d
  •   roxyrosenberg Have to agree with everyone. Whatever is best for the moment is great whether that be mobile or DSLR. Also use both! Often though rare opportunities/unexpected wonders get caught on the phone! 3d
  •   etsane I use both phone and DSLR. Sometimes you see a great shot and you don't have your camera on you so you use your phone, I like editing on my phone though.. 2d
  •   welile_n I agree with @luftywiranda13...what would be the difference between instagram and Flickr?...I'm still a purist, still amazed by the quality of picture you can produce with something that fits in your pocket....I'm learning how to use my DSLR, I have a dedicated account for it on Instagram, but I find that DSLR's and other traditional cameras don't lend themselves to fun and exploration as easily as phone cams do, their bulky, serious and very conspicuous....like exploring the Amazon in a suite and business shoes....and a briefcase laptop bag. 2d
  •   twistedcamerastrap Well half my shots are with my S4 but even they are latergrams! 2d

alessiolr You know when you upload a shot and you just can't get all the lines straight? This is one of those shots. I chose one line and went with it.

There's no app for that.
