What a difference a year makes. Since last fall, I’ve tested and reviewed a lot of phones, and I’ve taken thousands of photos with all of them. There’s lots I could say about each phone, but I’m still happy to keep coming back to the indispensable iPhone 11.
Toronto, you’re gorgeous. Especially through the lens of the Samsung Galaxy S10+.
For the last few days, I’ve been testing the Huawei P30 Pro, and while I’m still working on my final review, there are a number of things that stand out right away about the new smartphone.
For as long as there have been smartphones, shooting at night has yielded about the same results, but Google’s new Night Sight feature for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL opens up new potential for your photography.
For the last three weeks I’ve been testing out the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, and a few features in particular left a lasting impression, but it’s the overall package that confirms my love for the Note series, and Samsung’s excellent user experience.
The DJI Mavic Pro is a mighty little drone. Folded for travel, the drone could comfortably fit inside a tissue box. Unfold the drone, and get it ready to fly, and the Mavic Pro boasts 27 minutes of flying time, with a 4k camera, and a range of up to 7 kilometres. It’s an impressive design that is efficient and bold considering all the features that have been packed into the very portable drone.
Like a lot of people, my phone comes with me everywhere, and it’s my go-to device for capturing the moment. From events, to travel, and heading to the park with my family, my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is my favorite device for photos and video because of its dual cameras, loads of features, and great performance in all kinds of lighting conditions.
Hand me a new cell phone to try, and I’ll probably end up playing with the camera within a few minutes–it’s my go-to feature because first and foremost I love taking pictures. The technology on mobile devices has also come a long way in the last five years, and they now offer impressive options compared to a standard camera. So when I had the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 to play with for a month, I ended up shooting a lot of photos and videos–over 1300 photos, and close to an hour of video.
For the last few weeks I’ve been testing out the Samsung Galaxy S5, a beautiful update to the Galaxy S line of phones that has an upgrade that I really appreciate the most: the camera.
This summer I’ve been trying something new, at least for me. I used to cart around my big, full-frame camera everywhere, but I’m now trying to just take my phone with me everywhere to snap memorable life-moment sort of photos. These are the kinds of photos I take because I like to look back and see random things I did with my family, or other adventures covering events for The GATE.
