Crazy to see how good smartphone cameras are nowadays. Do you use your phone as your main camera now, or do you still rely on a standalone?

I use my smartphone more than I used to, however, I still like to use the standalone camera as it can do things better in some situations besides having a good zoom capability.

Very good pics Quad. Are they straight from the phone, no editing or anything? They don't look as saturated as Samsung pics usually are. :thumb:

I've been spoiled by the camera on my Pixel, I rarely take my RX100 out with me now.

We should have a mobile phone pictures thread, that would interesting to see what sort of images folks can get out of their phones. :)

Yes all are unedited and straight from the phone except one which I experimented with for HDR in Snapseed.

Pixel is great and fun to use at night time. The software alogarithm in pixel gives one an impression that it has tremendous dynamic range.

I like the idea of mobile phone thread. Post pics of pixel unedited in a new thread.

I'll just add to this thread. We can make it a dedicated mobile picture thread. :)


On the subject of editing, I'm loving Google Photo's, its great for a quick edit and some of the suggestions it comes up with can be quite good, some not so much mind you. But when it does a movie etc its been great.

So with that, here's a few from my 2XL, at most they might have been cropped a touch or straightened up. I'm no pro photographer mind you! :)

These were taken using 'Night Sight' mode. (had to crop the last one a fair bit as I took it after a few beers and managed to get most of the balcony in the shot too! :blush: )

Finally a portrait mode shot.

I am changing the title of the thread to: Mobile picture thread ;)
Yes Google Photos is a great tool and very much complete in all respects. Have you tried Snapseed? It is another good editor. Other than these two most are not polished as these two.

I liked your pictures very much. I am always impressed with how it handles highlights and shadows, there is always plenty of detail in both in a single shot including some of yours you posted. HDR is a very good tool to use in difficult lighting situations so use it to your advantage for better output. Lets get other to post their phone pics here in this thread.

I have Snapseed, only used it a handful of times though, must give it more time I think.

Cheers, I do love my Pixel 2XL, I am finding it really hard to find a phone I'd be willing to update to as the camera and software is just that good. Pixel 4 is very much on my radar! :D

I'm not really a phone person and don't often use my phone to take pictures, it's a Samsung Galaxy S6 I think and it has tons of software on it that I neither use nor understand, it's all I can do to use it as a phone and text machine.

I recently sprayed one of my turntables Nissan Emerald Green which I chose after seeing one of these cars 'in the flesh' and recently I saw one parked at Charlton railway station so took a snap of it with my phone, not having my camera with me.

It's nothing special but it is the only pic I've taken with my phone for some considerable time.

I used to have the Galaxy S6 when it came out eons ago :lol: It is actually a very decent phone camera and capable of producing decent images. You need to give it a go anytime you out there.
