Every now and then I see something and I want to photograph it but I don't have my camera with me. At these times I naturally pull out the camera I have in my pocket all the time, my Samsung S3 mini, and take a few snaps. When I have done this and I finally get to view the pics on my computer screen at home I am normally amazed by how far cell phone cameras have come and it sinks in again just why the camera companies are reporting a slump in sales and smartphone manufacturers are booming! Take a look at these snaps of some autumn foliage I took today on my way home. I edited them in the very handy Snapseed program on the phone before sending them to my computer where I simply resized and branded them before posting.
While they are not dslr good you have to admit they look pretty darn good for a cell phone camera! I don't even have the latest, greatest, bestest model either.
No wonder then that so many people choose their cell phone cameras as their primary camera. I have sometimes heard people I know choosing their phone based on the performance of the camera it has built in.
