  1. I figured if Bryan was still in Thailand he would’ve posted by now. Here’s a couple of mine, iphone 6s+, camera app using hdr mode(first using vivid mode, I think)

  2. For me, the jury is still out on the iphone. It’s purely a question of ergonomics and what I do now is activate the camera through control centre to bypass security (turn on phone and swipe up, then select camera app).

    I can’t get used to using the phone in landscape mode so i shoot portrait mode and because I don’t like the aspect ratio nxm with n < m (eg 2x3), I shoot square which i struggle with atm.

    I wish apple would enable me to specify an app other than the default camera app to be accessible from the control centre.

  5. Frank, you’ve made a great start.
     
  6. Norman, many thanks. I am still amazed what one can get out of a sensor that small.
     
  7. And they are getting better all the time with advances in hardware and especially software, weather sealing. I’m still struggling with ergonomics though.
     
  8. The HTC m8 is my first cell phone. I have no reference for comparison. But I was surprised by the difference software seems to make. My phone runs with LineageOS, and I have Open Camera installed. The difference between the results I get using this software compared to the camera software within WhatsApp is like day and night.

    I have another open source software installed, which is Photo Editor. I can't believe how powerful this program is. It even has a rudimentary version of curves! It's not like you can do serious photo editing on the tiny screen of a cell phone, but if you want to do a quick touch up before sending a photo off, this program can do more than most anybody will ever need!

    Kodak Ektra - surprising capability in a relatively cheap phone.
