Let me say up front that, normally, I am no fan of camera phones. The quality is usually abysmal on a good day and the photos come out looking like . . . well, what you’d expect from a tiny, cheaply made camera stuffed inside a device that was actually designed to be anything but a camera.
But I feel compelled to admit, that has changed a bit with the newer technology.
Lately I have been playing around with my new BlackBerry Torch and have been pleasantly surprised by the results. It has a 5 megapixel camera and includes a number of different presets that allow me to actually (somewhat) control the exposure. Not too bad for something stuffed into a phone.
I’ll likely continue to rely on my DSLR for the most part, but it is nice to know I can take a semi-decent photo on the fly without having to carry my gear everywhere I go (like riding my bike to work).
Anyways, I thought I’d post a few of my favourites from the Torch.
Hope you like them.
