Why lug around a big digital camera when you already have a great one in your pocket? That’s right; you can get great travel pictures right now using your smartphone’s built-in camera and a few great photography apps. Not only that, but you’ll also be able to personalize your photos and share them with your family and friends too. Let’s get started.
No matter which brand of smartphone you own, chances are it’s got a pretty decent digital camera built in. And that camera probably has some nice standard features, such as a focus and exposure lock, basic editing controls, a panorama feature and probably a movie feature as well. It might, like the new Apple iPhones, even include an HDR feature allowing you to capture images in difficult, high-contrast lighting. In fact, the current models are offering most of the features you used to find on compact digital cameras. A quick tour of your user’s manual should help explain what your particular camera is capable of, right out of the box.
