" YOU BEARS BEEN SWIPING CAMPERS CAMERA-PHONES ? "  :f:


" They're worth more than pic-a-nic baskets Mr. Ranger Sir ! "  :P







Rant  :f:  or  Rave  :cool:  about 'em ... They're here to stay.  L:


I was happy with the camera on mine  :)  ... Which retired today. 

So I have a NEW one to play with ... & a deluge of 'Apps'. :us:


I'll let you know if they're tasty or not  ???  & how I get on ! 

:pop:

If they are tasty does that mean they are a "snacky snappy app"??

Curious minds, etc

SAY CHEESE !





Or just   pic-a-nic baskets   if you prefer !


- - - - - - -


I haven't had much time  :time:  to spend messing around with NEW camera-phones.

But some quick tests of 'Macro' ability with poor-light levels (my bench !) look OK.


The 1st NEW camera-phone got sent back, before I'd even opened it, or received it.  :us:

The superficially impressive  48 MEGA PIXEL CAMERA  spec. is sure to shift some product.

However, if you then read on, you find that in 'Macro' mode, it is  2 MEGA PIXELS !! 

:f:

Not good at all.


You will find a lot of the latest seemingly 'hi-end' 4-lens camera-phones ...

... boast a similarly $4!7 ability to take decent 'Macro' close-ups.


Progress I guess !  :Crazy:

More   l  a  t  e  r  .   .    .

:time:


Still rather BUSY  :f:  as usual !


I have been snapping a few shots of the modeling in progress ...

... using my OLD camera-phone though !!  :P

I used to be the kinda guy, who had a NEW phone every 12 months ...  :old dude:

... but that was TEN YEARS AGO !  :shocked:


I checked the 'Firmware' on my OL' trusty Motorola 'Atrix' ...

... & it said 2011 ! ... & microchips don't lie !  (that often)  :)


The battery on that sucker still charges fine ...  :shocked:

... & the touchscreen, all the buttons, camera & stuff, all work perfectly.


There was actually nothing wrong with it anyway ...  :us:

... it was in fact a BUSTED mobile 4G Wi-Fi that caused me to 'upgrade'.


More on camera-phones & modeling photography    l  a    t     e       r    .     .      .

These were all snapped in 'Macro Mode' at a 6-Megapixel resolution I think.  L:

The original photos had text added using my favourite camera-phone Graphics App. ...

... then they were saved at 800x600 pixel resolution ready for Posting on Freerails.  :)





Very handy having a quick & simple 'camera-phone routine' ...

... to document railroad modelling work & ideas happening on the work bench !
