The Best Camera

They say the best camera is the one you have with you. For me, that is my iPhone camera. I’ve gotten some amazing shots with it, and I’ve also produced some real duds. But without it, I’d have not captured one of those shots. For that reason, I always want to have the best camera app and know how best to get a good shot. I like Camera+, but there are many other worthy camera apps, and the one that comes with the phone is fine, too.

This video was produced by B&H Photo and includes some very good and practical tips for those of you who want to do more than take a picture of where you parked your car so you can find it after Christmas shopping.

  1. I agree that the iPhone is a great camera phone, and I gave up my DSLR last year because I was taking such great shots with my iPhone, and I’m not even a photographer!

    That was an awesome overview video and had a lot of great tips on taking even better photo’s… thanks so much, Donna, and keep this great posts going!

    • Thanks, Matt! I enjoy my iPhone camera, too, and often enough it’s all I have with me. I like every tip I find. As much as I already had found from other sources, I still learned something, and was also reminded of things I’d learned before. I found another tip, some time ago, on getting a better close-up shot. I’m going to find that and post it. Right now, what I use for that is a loop placed over the iPhone camera lens. But the real tip involves tearing apart a disposable camera, removing the lens, and mounting that on something you can then slip over the iPhone lens. It works. Using that trick, I took some surprisingly good close-up pictures of a sunflower one day.
