Another friendly littla fella

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.

  1. I especially like the train shot. Yup, it’s definitely more the photog, you, than the camera. Nice done with the Torch 😉

  2. Awesome shots Mike!
    (Though I’m viewing them from my bb… Lol…
    Still.. Shows you that it really is the person behind the camera more than the camera itself…)
