6 Camera Features to Look for in a Phone

When you're getting a new phone, one of the essential features you need to consider is its camera features. Nowadays, taking photos of almost anything and posting it on social media is one of the most popular trends. The better photographs you capture, the more people will follow you—this matters especially if you're an influencer or a vlogger.

Your camera features can help you with such, so you need to look into the following features when buying a new mobile phone:

Digital SLR-Like Cameras

Digital SLR cameras are one of the latest innovations in photography, and one of the first people to embrace them were professional photographers. With a digital SLR, you can use the camera to take as many pictures as you like. This makes digital SLR cameras great for family photos, portraits, and those who want to capture events in a professional yet casual way.

However, if you're a person who wants to integrate a digital SLR into a mobile phone, you can do so. Pick the phones with such features so you can have a two-in-one device. One of the popular phones with a DSLR-like camera is Vivo X50 Pro, which professional photographers can use to capture high-quality pictures.

Digital Zoom

Most phones today can zoom in and out. When you try to take a picture, and the background gets out of focus, the phone will crop the image so that the background is crisp. This is an excellent feature because it ensures the image is sharp.



Automatic Focus

You should also look for an automatic focus feature. Some phone cameras can automatically focus so you don't have to adjust your phone camera manually. Other cameras are only able to focus a portion of the image and then let you know. This allows you to focus on the essential parts of the image without focusing on the wrong part of the photo.

Video Camera

Most phones allow you to record videos using the built-in video recording function. This means you can take the video on your phone or place it onto the computer and watch it there. Some of these devices allow you to control the sound being recorded and adjust the audio volume with a finger's touch. These features will enable you to take better quality videos, even if you're using a phone.

Shake Reduction Feature

Although rare, some cameras offer a feature called ‘shake reduction.’ This means the camera will slow down the picture during video recording, making it look sharper and less blurry. While this may seem unimportant, it's an incredible feature to have if you're using the phone to take a wide-angle photo.

Manual Controls


Although automatic controls are usually what people use when taking photographs using a phone, it's still best that it has manual controls available as well. Some cameras will allow you to set different settings, such as ISO, aperture, white balance, and other functions. This means you can make your photos look sharper, especially if you're using the camera outdoors.

The picture quality of the camera depends on the settings you use. You must keep the best settings in mind, so if you have to take the picture at night, the auto-exposure is usually the best option. Or if you have to take photos in low lighting conditions, the aperture setting is best.

There are times when you want to use the photo-editing tools to correct a wrong setting you've used. Therefore, you should choose the camera with a built-in photo editing tool so you won't have to install another app.

Conclusion

It's a good idea to get a camera capable of recording both movies and photos. Since you may not want to bring lots of gadgets whenever you want to capture a picture, your mobile device is enough. So long as it has essential camera features, you can capture images like a professional photographer.

Especially if the phone has a digital SLR-like camera, you won't have to worry about its resolution. If you're not into photography, you don't have to worry because one of the best phone camera features is an automatic focus. With such, your phone camera will automatically adjust to create the best resolution of the image.

You also need a phone camera with a superb video camera since taking videos of things you do is also one of the trends nowadays. You can record high-quality videos if your phone camera has a shake reduction feature.

Moreover, if you're a professional photographer and want a better resolution depending on every image you're capturing, you need to have phone cameras with manual controls. That being said, you can enjoy and post superb photos using your mobile device.




Google Pixel 5 - TOP 5 FEATURES

The Google Pixel 5 is now OFFICIAL. We have the OFFICIAL Details, Specifications and Features and It's way different then what the Pixel Flagship line was made for.

The OG Pixel, Pixel 2 XL, Pixel 3 XL, and Pixel 4 XL all Got Flagship CPUs, We saw some design experiments, like Huge bezels in Pixel 2, A huge notch on Pixel 3 XL, and Last Year there was a huge top for useless Soli Radar. This time However things are Perfect in terms of Design, but in terms of Specifications and mainly CPU, it's not looking good.


Here are top 5 features of the brand new Pixel 5 Smartphone.

1. Design

So you're looking at the first Google Smartphone with symmetrical bezels and i must say this is a really Good design, there's a punch hole on top left corner, It's huge no doubt, but this design is way better than what the Pixel 4, or Pixel 3 XL was. This is an OLED Display with 90Hz Refersh Rate, 90Hz is I think a sweet spot, i'm in for that.

The Back design is also really nice, and in sorta sage green color it looks unique. the Entire rear is made of aluminium. Wireless Charging does not work through metal, but there's a cutout for the transmission of energy. So yeah Metal it is and it looks and ofcourse gonna feel really amazing.


2. Performance

So the Pixel 5 features a Mid range Snapdragon 765G 5G CPU, which can also be found in the OnePlus Nord which cost just 339 USD if you convert the Indian pricing. The 765G is based on 7nm Process and is decent for Daily usage, I haven't seen any lags on my Nord so i guess same for the Pixel 5, Additionally there's also 8GB of RAM with 128GB of Storage.


3. Camera

Now it's not about the Design like a Glass Panel, or Performance like Flagship 865 CPU, it's all about the best Cameras and Image Processing, the Pixel 5 is once again going to smash most Phones in terms of Camera Performance and Image Processing. There's 12.2MP Main Camera which supports 4K 60FPS and 1080p 240FPS video recording, it is the same sensor used in the Pixel 4, Pixel 3 XL, only difference will be in image processing and there's also a 16MP wide-angle camera. No Telephoto is quite disappointng, but yeah Google's image processing can make zoomed images looks like taken from Telephoto.



4 Software

Second most important thing inside Google Pixel Phones is Software, it is straight from the brand who owns Android, so security patches, and major updates before all is something most need for a secure usage. There's also some Pixel exclusive Software like Screen Call, Integrated Google assistant and much more.

This is a bloatware free experience which is something you won't find in Xiaomi or OnePlus devices too coz now they come with Facebook and Messenger. So yeah Pixel 5 with best Software.


5. Hidden Addons

This may go unnoticed, but the Pixel 5 features Flagship IP68 Certification, there's 4080mAH BATTERY with Wireless Charging and reverse wireless charging, and it's overall a great and decent phone. 699 US dollars will be the price, it's going one on one with the S20 FE, iPhone 12 Mini and OnePlus 8T. I won't say you should just go and grab Pixel 5, but if you want a decent phone for normal performance usage and great cameras, the Pixel 5 is the one to get.



Google expected to sell only 800K units of Pixel 5 in 2020


The Google's Pixel 5 and Pixel 4A XL are on it's way and this year Google is targeting a wide range of Audience by Lowering down the Price and ofcourse Lowering down the Specifications. Unlike the Pixel 4, Pixel 3, Pixel 2 XL or the OG Pixel Phone, the Pixel 5 is a Mid-range Smartphone with some Flagship Features.

Google is looking to produce only around 800K units of the Pixel 5 in 2020. Google is expected to ship 3 million units if we combine the Pixel 5, Pixel 4a 5G, and Pixel 4a together. This year, the top selling phones were Galaxy A51 and iPhone 11, so Google with Pixel 4A and Pixel 5 can easily surpass most phones.

"Google gave a relatively conservative order forecast this year because its flagship Pixel 4 did not sell well last year, and because COVID-19 is causing their team to stay on the safe side concerning handsets for now."


FYI, Google sold 7.2 million Pixel Smartphones last year, but this year due to Covid-19, All the Tech Giants including Google got affected, so shipping 3M Units of New Phones in 2020 is not bad at all.
