Smartphones I recommend
People often ask me how to take good shots with a smartphone.
My standard response has been that it is not the camera, but how it is taken. Granted, you have to keep these tips in mind, but still… there must be SOMETHING I look for in a smartphone when I want it as a camera?
Yes. there are.
- As high a resolution as you can afford up to about 6MP. Beyond that, it really does not matter unless you plan to enlarge and print your photo.
- An ability to digitally zoom into a scene. (NOTE: This tip is not for gear-heads or those that want hi-quality images.)
- Flash (optional)
- iPhone (yup. I said it!)
- Samsung Galaxy S
- Samsung i5500 (aka Galaxy 5)
- HTC Desire HD (aka HTC Inspire)
