I'm a traditionalist as well. All of my Instagram photos were taking with my iPhone 4S.

Know what helps photos quality? Clean the lens every now and then. A Q-tip works just fine. Amazing how removing pocket lint helps.

Absolutely, and even using the different settings can make a difference like landscape, backlight and night. My phone has a macro setting that makes close up details really clear and crisp.

Mine are all cell pictures. My first digital camera was only 1.4mp. Phone cameras have come a long way. My cell phone is 8mp, which is pretty damn good.

Here's how I see it: I have this camera in my phone, so how can I use it to take cool photos and tell a story? I also tend to keep my captions short: one or two words, usually, with four being my max. Like Twitter, it's a communication venue that happens to be fun.

If I remember correctly, the first digital camera we had at the mag was a Nikon Coolpix 950: 1.9 megapixels. How far we have come, right?

Mine was a Sony. The media was 3.5" floppy disks. Each disk would hold about 25 pictures.

I just dumped 3000 pictures off my phone.

Something I just learned via Instagram: A high school friend just purchased some Batgirl Underoos. Not sure if they're her size or not.

You can see a lot. I follow Suicide Girls on Instagram. I will just leave it at that.

Did she post photos of just the undies themselves or her wearing them?

Just the box. @jennabusch. Her beat is the comic/sci-fi/geek world. She co-hosts a show with Stan Lee, so right there that's a major win.

And not to thread jack my own tread, but if you're into geek culture, give Jenna a follow. She's on all of the hip social networks.

Just looked her up, looks like my kind of stuff. Lack of attractive women wearing Batman underoos not withsanding.

I'm on there as well. I like the pictures. It's a lot better than any of the other social media outlets. @bmw88rider is my name on there. It's mostly a mix of my travel pictures and pictures from the different races I work.

Hopefully this year I can add some pictures from LeMans to my feed :)

Just figured I would dig this up again. Anybody else find anything good on Instagram, or recently join? My posts have become mostly baby-related, but once my cars aren't under a foot of snow that will hopefully change again.
