Angry Buy a Goddamn camera

Really people, the cellphone pics are driving me up a wall. Are y'all that cheap that you can't afford a camera? Maybe you shouldn't be modding your car if you don't have the money to buy even a low end digital camera.

And absolutely no ******* white balance ability. Wanna put your cell phone against my digital camera?

FFS, its not that expensive to buy even a lower end quality digital camera. I agree 100% with OP!

Anyone want to buy a Nikon Coolpix 5700? 5mp, 8X (35-280mm) optical zoom. Takes very nice pictures.

Ah yes. The cellular phone camera: Combining the battery life of a digital camera with the imaging capabilities of a cell phone since 1997.

I wouldn't say you shouldn't be modding a car if you don't have the money for a camera. I mean, I did a 302 swap in a t-bird without a digital camera. Some people would rather spend that money toward moding the car, or on other things. I have a 100 dollar Kodak digital camera and it works, nothing fancy, but it's nice to have. If I didn't have it and I had a camera phone I would use it, it's better than nothing. However, I wouldn't pay 100+ for a phone just so it would take a picture either. My phone cost 30 bucks new and it came with a charger. I see your point if your trying to show off your new paint job with pics of from your camera. I mean, like neo's camera vid of his motor sucked, but hey, it's better than nothing.

Damn, some real nice for cell phones pics here. Where are all these nice cell phones hiding when people are taking fuzzy, blurry, over/underexposed and generally crappy pictures of their cars?
