Mobile Monday

By RysiekJan
Out and about on a rainy day without the the camera and came across this car. Smart phone at hand and able to get a few shots between the rain showers. However, I still felt the need to download the shots to the computer and view on the monitor to satisfy myself on quality.Moreover, a little bit of editing also done, rotation and cropping to get the final image.
I must say that I am satisfied with the quality of images that can be achieved with a smart phone BUT I must prove it to myself by downloading and viewing captures on a large screen.

Totally agree with you about editing on such a small screen, Richard. I would have doubts about every image before I had seen it on a 'normal' size screen.
Like the gas guzzler.
Itís a superb image but I agree I think this because we all do the same thing with our cameras itís second
nature to do so with the camera phone.

Iím getting ready to upgrade my smartphone the Huawei has Leica lens and is not short of a Thousand
Pounds is it worth it I think that sort of money would go a long way to a camera upgrade or lens.

Very good capture.
Essential to view the image on a large screen if you're serious in any way about your images (I know you are as you're on epz, that's a general comment for anyone thinking otherwise Smile)

Interesting comments, Richard.

Possibly if you have good close-range vision (as I used to have, allowing me to see 35mm negatives clearly without aid) you can do it all without risk of coming a cropper. I proved to myself that I can't, a few weeks back, by not norticing a power line in a shot (though i would have posted unedited anyway, as it goes).

Carole - the reviews are done by people who love the technology. I'm getting adequate quality from a £70 Vodafone own brand mobile, providing the conditions are halfway decent. My recent hospital stay has demionstrated that the performance in low light is a tiny bit rubbishy.

So I suggest, unless you want to make it your main camera, spend what you want, and buy a proper lens for a real camera with what you save.
