Sydney from the zoo
A friend of mine, on vacation in Australia, snapped this picture of Sydney from the Taronga Zoo. On his Blackberry. A few hours ago. Dang, these phones are getting good.
Dang, these phones are getting good.
Indeed they are. I am amazed at the quality of photos snapped from phones. Back in the day, those photos of that quality would have been possible only with a multitude of equipment. Light meters..
That looks like a scene from a dream.
And, I agree with the technical quality of the equipment as well. Amazing.
I imagine it won't be long before camera companies, in order to stay in business, will need to add phone capabilities to their cameras.
"Light meters.. "
A digital camera is really a light meter, or an array of light meters.
As for including phones in the cameras, some already have GPS built in.
It's not the phone looking good, it's Australia that looks this good. When are you coming for a visit??
