Smart Phone Camera
There are thousands of articles and videos examining the details and technical specs of camera gear. However, the most technically superior camera won’t be worth a penny if it isn’t with you when you need it. Often, the “right” camera is the one that is with you so you can capture the fleeting moments of Mother Nature displaying her magic. Today, almost everyone carries a smart phone camera at all times. It is odd to leave home without it. Additionally, these mobile phone cameras have come a long way and offer so much flexibility for photographers. There are even ample camera phone accessories and apps on the market.
For this reason, it is worth spending a little time to understand the power of your smartphone camera. Similarly, it is critical to know the limitations of your camera phone. Understanding the best settings and learning how to use the phone’s camera settings can go a long way in creating breathtaking landscape photography images.
This isn’t to say you should give up all your camera gear and shoot exclusively with a camera phone. Certainly, it gives new meaning to the saying “traveling light.” But if you know the best conditions for using your smart phone’s camera, it is more like traveling smart and taking advantage of nature’s spontaneity. In those moments of grandeur, you’ll still be able to capture stunning nature photos with equipment that literally fits in a single pocket.
