Smartphone User: The Shutterbug

What Is A Shutterbug?

A Shutterbug is someone who has a love for photography. Now that smartphone cameras are getting so great and with the explosion of social media, they have turned almost everyone with a phone into an amateur photographer. The Shutterbugs, however, are photography enthusiasts, and are always snapping pictures to share with the world. 

Are Good Cameras Only On High End Phones?

In 2018, almost every phone can take an amazing picture in the right circumstances. It helps if you know a little bit about photography, and how to use some of the editing apps to create that magical pic you are seeking. The mid range devices are coming equipped with some great camera sensors, this means you no longer have to spend top of the line money to get an above average camera on your phone. 

My Fav Flagship Cameras

These are currently my favourite devices when it comes to photography on flagship level. Ironically, you have devices the start from $400usd and goes right up to $1000usd. It just goes to show you how great these cameras are getting and that you can stay away from the $1000usd mark and still be able to take some amazing shots. 

“Shutterbugs don't have to spend a ton of money to get a great camera.”

As technology progresses, we are seeing vast amounts of innovation in the mid range dept. Before, if you wanted to take any sort of good pictures, you needed to have a flagship device. Now, you got devices that are at the $200usd mark that are taking excellent photos. Flagship devices really excel in more situations, and the low light photography has stepped up tremendously. Devices like the Google Pixel 3 & the Huawei P20 Pro are able to take a pretty good shots in almost pitch dark conditions.

The Google Pixel 3

The Google Pixel 3 is the successor to the award winning best camera phone of 2017, The Google Pixel 2. While all the manufacturers are adding a wide range of sensors to the phones, some adding 4 additional sensors to the rear, Google still manages to create the best pictures with their single sensor and their computational photography approach.
