It’s true what about the say which goes “The best camera is the one with you”. What’s the use of the top of the line RM20k DSLR with a RM8k lens sitting at home when you are witnessing a heavenly sunset? Of course if you have that DSLR with you, it would be much better.
With today’s smartphones sporting better and better cameras with more interesting applications like Facebook, Google+, Instagram and Pinterest, more people are taking photos and sharing them online. I read somewhere that in the first half of 2011, almost 100 billion photos were uploaded to facebook. That’s about 64 photos uploaded per second. This number could double by today.
I do upload quite a number of photos to social media sites including facebook, google+ and instagram. I just love the camera on my current smartphone, the HTC One X.
Everywhere I go, my phone is with me. So I tend to flick it out to grab a random snap shot like the one above which was taken as I was on the way to breakfast.
The lobster as I was browsing through the numerous tanks filled with live seafood at a restaurant.
This is rather interesting. The Sony MP3 player which I bought some quite a long time ago. It was laying dormant in my office drawer for a couple of years. Still works fine
This is interesting. A shot of my office’s plotter doing a printhead calibration.
Even when travelling. During my recent trip to Bangkok, i did not even bring along a camera. First of all, my DSLR is too darn huge and bulky. And my current point and shoot camera is a bit dated and my smartphone would perform much better :p
This is my point and shoot. As you can see, it’s very well used. It’s still working fine except for the LCD which is a little wonky. Much discoloration, but Ive excepted it since it was followed me to the beach, construction sites and was used rather roughly.
and with ever more interesting camera apps which emulates film and other effects, it very interesting to take photos like the one above; double exposure.
I think in time we will get to see much more advanced features being incorporated into smartphone cameras.
