Mobile Phone Cameras & Me

My Mobile Secret

Secret admission: I love mobile photography. I love the lean, mean, shoot-from-the-hip capability you have with a good mobile phone. If I didn’t ever want to print my images, I might dive deep. Unfortunately, size matters (also resolution!), so as of now large prints aren’t so viable from mobile photos. But that doesn’t stop me from diggin’ it and loving the ride!

I’ve been asked now to help beta test and offer feedback on the cameras of three phones, prior to release: the MotoX, the Nexus5 Google App and Verizon’s HTC One.
I was stoked to see that most of my suggestions on improvements to the on-board editing software were implemented at one point. Of course, whether or not it was really from my feedback, I’ll never know. I just know that between the MotoX (when it was owned by Google) and the Google Camera, an upgrade was done and everything I squawked about missing in the editing tools is now included. Who cares why! I now love using them
