After a week in Israel, I met Raina and we set out on a road trip to Vegas, the Grand Canyon, and now Bryce and Zion National Parks. For cameras, Raina brought her iPhone 6 while I brought my iPhone 6S and the OnePlus 3 I am currently reviewing. Do we regret not bringing dedicated cameras? Not. At. All.
The OnePlus is good enough for me to get shots like this…
And like this.
In fact, the camera on the OnePlus 3 is so good that when I zoom in and crop this last picture I get something as impressive as this…
Nothing, however, compares to the amazing images Raina was able to capture as we approached Zion yesterday. It was so impressive that Raina was moved to post it to FaceBook noting that if you can capture something as stunning as this were going north of 60 miles an hour the landscape MUST be gorgeous.
She’s right, it is gorgeous up here. But the landscape is only part of the story. A few years ago a smartphone camera was a “well at least I have this with me so I can get by” device. It was “good enough”, but not the camera you would consciously CHOOSE to bring with you. No longer. Smartphones cameras are now beyond impressive whether standing still… or whizzing down the road!
So do we regret not having a dedicated camera with us? Not at all. How about you? Do you still travel with a DSLR, or have you gone all in with smartphone-ography?
