A camera phone is just another digital camera - or is it? The evidence says no. There's something different about camera phones that is generating a whole new way of doing and looking at photography. Being connected all the time is part of it for sure, so is having your camera with you almost all the time. From quick family photos to online moblogs, from political activism to personal diaries, from industrial espionage to art exhibitions, camera phones are having an impact much greater than anyone would have predicted. This book, the first ever written on the subject, is your complete guide to the technology and culture of camera phones.
