Cell phone pictures... Hu?


A few weeks ago my stupid "Smart Phone" went deep sea diving without me... (Fortunately for me). So I replaced it with the latest offering from Samsung, the Galaxy S4. Besides all the latest built in gadgets like thermometer, hygrometer, barometer, and a bunch of other sensors it has a 13mp camera.  Thats more than my 12mp Nikon D90!

Today I got a chance to play around with it... The above picture is about a 20% crop of the original picture. I cropped and sharpened it in the phone with the built in editing features.

  2. That's a pretty good photo for a cell phone. Nice detail in the bee. You make it hard for me to argue with my youngest daughter that she should learn to use a "real camera" instead of here cell phone. I just won't tell her about it though. LOL

  3. i have been waffling about upgrading to the S4. the 13mp cam is very tempting since i really like my 8mp samsung galaxy old model. there's a new nokia lumia that has a 41 mp camera!

  5. Nice pic and the editing features did a nice job. I don't have a smart phone but all my kids and g-kids do. I'm amazed at the quality of the pics that they show me. Mostly portraits, but what landscape scenes I've seen are pretty good too! With all the useful apps, along with photo capabilities, a very useful piece of equipment for sure!

  6. More and more cell phones are proving to be ideal for taking "snap shots". But I still love my digital SLR when it's time for serious photography!
