People kept nagging me about getting a smartphone but no, I stayed loyal to my antique NOKIA 3310…
…all this while but earlier this year, DIGI announced that they would switch to 4G here so I would only be able to make calls and send smses (via 2G) unless I get a new phone that is more canggih.
I decided to stick to the aforementioned phone since it is still good for keeping in contact with family and friends. However, in the meantime, I went and got myself a smartphone, no, not the impressive expensive ones in the RM2,000 and above range, but one that cost around RM500.00 only. Of course, all this while, I had been learning how to use it (and progress was pretty slow, this old man) and one of the things I would want to do was to take photographs with it.
They kept saying that if I had a smartphone, I would be able to take photographs with it, no need to drag along a digicam everytime everywhere I went. Well, I’ve seen people taking photographs in dim conditions and their snapshots turned out pretty good unlike the ones I took with my digital camera.
This was the one I took in my kitchen with my smartphone…
…under the LED light in the early morning before the sun rose and this was the snapshot of the same kampung fried rice that my missus cooked taken using my digicam….
What do you think? Which of the two is nicer?
I do not think the photographs are a whole lot different – both would be good enough for my purpose which is to use in my blog but the thing is I don’t know what to do after taking them using the smartphone. With my digicam, I have a cable to attach it to my PC and transfer all the snapshots into MY PICTURES and I could take it from there.
I tried attaching a similar cable (from the charger) to my smartphone and my PC and yes, things started happening but I did not see anything that would enable me to do what I wanted to do. I went and googled and got this but I could not make head or tail out of it.
Right now, the only thing I can do is to post the photographs on Facebook, set to ONLY ME, and take them from there. Does anybody know of an easier or better way? Do let me know, if you do. Thanks.
