Smartphones are equipped with great automatic shooting modes that allow you to just point the camera and reliably take a great shot, but it always helps to understand what's going on — particularly when you can't quite get the shot you're after in auto mode. On phones like the Pixel 5, the camera software features separate exposure sliders for quickly adjusting the highlights and shadows, which can help create a more balanced shot, while other phones like the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra feature comprehensive manual shooting modes.
One of the most important and widely used features of a mobile phone after communication is its camera.
Every smartphone comes equipped with a camera now and the quality and features are constantly improving. The basic principles of what enables a camera to take great pictures remain the same - a good lens to gather the light and a sensitive film to develop the image, and for digital cameras, they still need a great quality camera lens but the job of the old photographic film has been replaced by a tiny electronic sensor. We measure how sensitive the digital sensor is in megapixels.
A pixel is a name given to the tiny colored dots which make up images. One million pixels make one megapixel. The larger the photograph or screen you put the image on the more pixels it will need to contain to remain sharp. When you see a photograph that looks grainy then it probably does not have enough pixels making up the picture.
As a guide :
Therefore the number of megapixels is important, but only up to a point.
Most of us prefer smartphones as our go-to cameras. As they are always with us, they are what we turn to take interesting snippets of our life and these quick pictures often become some of the best souvenirs in our home albums. The quality camera in a cell phone is one of the primary considerations when purchasing one, but since there are numerous smartphones in the market that boast of their photography capabilities, it can be confusing to pick one. That's why a camera is one of the main considerations when purchasing a phone and we all know that quality photos go way beyond how many megapixels your camera has. Here are five tips to count on when choosing between phones with cameras.
Summing it up. Naturally, what functionality you need from your phone's camera depends on your requirements. Do you plan to take loads of action photos? Take panoramic scenery shots? Or, maybe you need a strong front camera (like the one on the OPPO R9 Plus 4G Phablet) for flawless selfies? It's all up to you — but we are here to help with a wide selection of smartphones and upcoming holiday discounts.
Another way to approach poor lighting is to shoot a long exposure; allowing your camera to expose for 5 or 10 seconds at a time rather than a quick snap can make an enormous difference in the amount of light you're able to capture, and it's what powers feature like Astrophotography Mode on the Pixel. The problem is that you need to be extremely still when shooting long exposures since even the slightest camera movement can create a ton of motion blur.
That's where a tripod comes in. There are plenty of smartphone tripods to choose from, but the most important factor will be making sure the phone clamp can fit your phone and support its weight. Some tripods that are designed for dedicated cameras, including the Peak Design Travel Tripod I use every day, feature adaptable phone mounts for maximum versatility, but there's no need to spend an arm and a leg here; any tripod that can hold your phone will do the trick.
Even if you don't want to carry around a tripod with you, consider these same principles when you're taking photos. Any time you can prop your phone against a solid surface, your photos will improve. No matter how stable you think your hands are, they aren't as solid as setting the phone on a fixed object. Of course, if you want to be in your own shots, you'll need to enable a self-timer before hitting the shutter button.
Using the tips above will help you take better photos, but that won't mean much if you lose your best shots to an SD card failure or random phone crash. Don't leave things to fate; always make sure your photos are safely stored in a second location somewhere off of your phone.
Thankfully, this is a fairly easy process these days. Services like Google Photos can be set to automatically back up your shots to the cloud without any action on your part; just take a photo and know that it'll be backed up as soon as you connect to Wi-Fi (or, if you're blessed with an unlimited data plan, you can set your shots to back up right away over 5G or LTE). The best part is that Google Photos and services like it offer tons of free storage, though you might still want to upgrade to a paid tier with more space if you take a lot of photos.
A bonus of using a cloud-based photo backup service is that you don't have to worry about transferring photos to your computer or having trouble sharing. Every one of these services offers a web-based photo viewer (and downloader) so you always have access to your archive of photos, and sharing via a simple link makes that process a breeze.
