Smartphone Photos - iPhone / Droids / Nokia / others
« on: February 17, 2013, 10:36:04 PM »
Hi,

People go on and on how they can get amazing photos with their iPhones. I've seen posts on this forum that people have given up their P&S in favour of the iPhone.

I checked up this section of the forum and didn't see any iPhone image gallery.

Please post your best iPhone images here.

I always carry a P&S with me so I don't click many images from my iPhone. However, I checked and there were a few images which I clicked with it - posted below, not very good perhaps but I'm not too sure what to expect from this "camera" which is used by me only in SOS situations.

Cheers ...  J.R.

PS: I edited this post and changed to title to include all smartphones ... on popular demand of course! The the smartphone image battle begin  ;D

Most droid phone users are not that ga-ga about images they've taken from their smartphones, so I figured  ;)

There was a poster on this forum who went to the extent of suggesting that he could shoot a wedding with an iPhone - that's where I cracked my ribs, laughing.

I thought to start this thread to see what sort of photos people actually manage with their phones ... post the droid's too - maybe we can have a comparison like the Canon vs. Nikon for the smartphones too  :D

The problem with the whole "The best camera is the one in your hand" thing is that it encourages you to take lots of pictures that you otherwise would not have bothered to take.  Probably 98% of the photos that I take with my iPhone are quick shots of absurd stuff just to amuse my friends on Facebook.  Taking a good picture isn't exactly a high priority.

But under the right conditions, you can get halfway decent shots with phones.  Here are a few of my iPhone 5 shots.






Okay, so that last one was just an absurd picture to amuse my friends on Facebook....
