Comment on Report of my Second Lecture to Reigate Photographic Society – by Peter Flower by Ted http://www.vivecakohphotography.co.uk/2016/12/03/report-second-lecture-reigate-photographic-society-peter-flower/#comment-5362 Fri, 16 Dec 2016 11:12:21 +0000 http://www.vivecakohphotography.co.uk/?p=5045#comment-5362 For print the 8MP iPhone is fine. The methods used by Viveca to create her images means a lot of enhancement on the artistic side of things, which she excels at. Which is why you guys invite here to lecture.

I actually bought Viveca’s 4s and found it useful only for the anti-judder and the quick clandestine snap via the side button. I’m a travel blogger and did about 7 months using a Galaxy SII (basically the inside of a 4s). For my purposes it put the 4s to shame. I could save my images at 640 X 480 (good base size for my imagery) and then manipulate them with the MacGyver Photo Editor App in Android (recommended for fones and tablets). Also could group my contacts, so had a fully functional fone and a camera rolled into one.

A five month exclusive use gave me quite passable images, only one or two need altering in Photoshop when I returned. Today’s smartphone cameras are catching up with real ones. On the road I save a huge amount of weight and space in my backpack or small travel bag (I use for short trips).

But I still prefer my Leica/Lumix, especially for the zooms and lens quality.

Comment on Review of the Olloclip for The Journal, September 2016 by Ted http://www.vivecakohphotography.co.uk/2016/09/18/review-olloclip-journal/#comment-5354 Fri, 21 Oct 2016 14:21:56 +0000 http://www.vivecakohphotography.co.uk/?p=4940#comment-5354 Hi Viveca, I had considered something like this, but my travel blog shots really didn’t require it. What an optician in Portugal did for me (free for the sake of the challenge), was to take a polarized sunglasses lens, cut it to shape in the optical center and slipped it in between my fone and it’s protective cover. Bingo! I had a polarizing filter that worked beautifully – except the lens was brown.

Good idea though because having a polarizing filter on a smartfone often gives better shots. As long as the protective cover is nice and snug, the filter doesn’t slip and also protects the camera lens.

Like you I just used the bare fone. Mine is a Galaxy SII (read inside of iPhone 4s) and I set my size at 640 x 540 (couldn’t do that on iPhone). A slight reduction to 512 x 384 and I didn’t lose any detail. Shots were okay, but I’m going back to my Leica/Lumix as travel camera and just use the smartfone for emergency pics.
