I have a collection of some of my favorite photos from my travels through the years. Sometimes, I pose in the picture. More often, I don’t. I like to take a photograph and let other people soak up the scenery, imagining themselves standing where I was when I snapped the shot.
Sometimes, I use my ‘good’ camera, the Canon 60D, but that can get heavy and I don’t always want to lug it around when I’m on the go, so I resort to my cell phone, an iPhone 6. It does the job well, but not as well as other phones on the market featuring better cameras. And that means I’m sometimes really disappointed by the images I can share. The quality may be poor because of bad lighting, or I couldn’t get close enough to the action, or the camera in the phone just didn’t measure up to what I needed. Sometimes, I miss it altogether because the phone battery died (this one really kills me).
But that shouldn’t happen with the Motorola Droid Turbo. First, the camera is 21MP and the video capture is 4K—that’s the standard they use when shooting movies! The intelligent imaging makes it all very simple. And the battery…well, it lasts 48 hours and has a turbo charge option. Know what I have to say about that? Hello, beautiful. Come to mama!
It’s a total bonus that it’s a phone, too, and I can post to my social media channels directly when I get a shot I want to share (like the one below–which I took on a trip to Puerto Vallarta and fell in love with the shadows of the palm trees reflected on the water)!
Bet you want one of these now, don’t you? I know I do.
