#1349. Diversity in GAS

By pascaljappy | Opinion , Review

This weekend, I was fortunate enough to try 4 cameras   Here’s another brief post from me as I return from a quick visit to the UK to see friends and family. My X1D stayed at home to keep luggage light, but my old phone was always in my pocket. See pics above and below. […]

#1315. In defense of the smartphone, again.

By pascaljappy | Opinion

A new perspective on an old question.   Beyond the use as a visual notebook, at which it excels, the smartphone has progressed tremendously to capture more and more of the ‘serious’ photography market.

Until recently the mobile phone market appeared to have no limit.  Worldwide sales continued to grow, and manufacturers fed consumers with a never ending array of “innovation” to tempt them to upgrade.  Strangely, as real innovation seemed to falter and everyone’s phone already had a big enough screen and enough storage and a battery that […]

#828. Loving the smartphone more and more.

By pascaljappy | Opinion

The digitalisation benefits of smartphones have been covered often enough in my posts not to warrant going deep into them again. Always-with-you pocket convenience is great. Superb performance in appropriate conditions, also. But knowing your pics are being backed-up and organised as you shoot may be the most satisfying of the lot. So much so […]
