Shooting with Samsung Galaxy S3

Smartphones are great devices.  In addition to taking calls and sending text messages, they can also be used as PDAs, web browser, gaming console… and cameras.  In two of my previous posts (here for SII and here for SIII), I posted some pictures taken with cellphones.  Here are some more taken last week.


If you can’t beat them, join them.

I’m not a big fan of instagram but the filters really do make some for interesting pictures.

The camera app of S3 has inbuilt filters and effects that can be used, including black and white, HDR, panorama and even cartoonization.

Same with instagram, they can be fun and effective if used sparingly.

The Best Camera…

IS THE ONE YOU HAVE WITH YOU.  If my cameras are not with me (or even if they are but are inside the bag), the smartphone with a camera can be the best camera.

  2. Nice shots. I continue to be amazed at the quality of the photos from smartphones (and I definitely agree that having a camera with you–any camera–gives you the possibility of capturing a moment.
