Android Phones for Mobile Photography

Android Phones for Mobile Photography

Androidography is also gaining popularity along with iPhoneography. Are android phones capable of producing great pictures as well? Definitely! There are several android mobile phones and they are equipped with great quality cameras. One of them is even 16 megapixels.

Thousands of photography apps are available at android marketplace. Mobile photography is getting more and more interesting with the release of several mobile phones with improved cameras.

Android photography, just like iPhoneography is addicting. But unlike iPhoneography, there are less android photographers and the trend isn’t as viral. But who knows? Maybe something will inspire android photographers to take more stunning pictures in the future.

Altek released their first 14MP android cameraphone. This android cameraphone has all the bells and whistles of modern digital photography. It is literally like your regular digital camera and the phone is more like a bonus. Android photography apps will just make this cameraphone much better. So for Android fans out there, will this phone inspire you to take artistic images or what?

 I have noticed that mobile phone manufacturers are getting into the trend of higher megapixels and improved image quality. More and more people are using their phones to snap pictures instead of their digital cameras. Will point and shoot digital cameras be forgotten in the near future? Or will cameraphones be its own thing?

Samsung, Sony Ericsson, HTC, and etc are producing amazing android phones with a camera that can compete with your separate digital camera. Polaroid’s SC1630 Android HD Camera is packed with 850/1900/2100MHz WCDMA and 850/900/1800/1900 GSM radios, along with WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and an FM antenna. It’s a great camera with android phone as a bonus. It features 3.2-inch capacitive touchscreen, 512MB of built-in storage and 512MB of RAM. The camera has 16MP with aperture of F3.1-F5.6, 3X optical zoom and 5 times digital zoom. This phone will be available in April for only $299.

There are several android phones to choose from in the market. I have seen stunning images taken from Samsung and other android phones. There are passionate androidographers in Flickr and it is quite fun browsing pictures on their gallery as well.

Can Android photographers be as big as iPhoneographers with huge following across the globe? Only time will tell. But Android photography is here to stay. With thousands of android photography apps in the marketplace, it is hard not to be addicted to it.

    I am a designer and amateur photographer, and love using my HTC to take pictures. I do own a very expensive DLSR however my phone is nearly as good. Also apps like camera+ can really enhance the photos.

    I think you are definitely right the android market is going to grow exponentially like the iphone market. Mobile photography is the future and the latest cameraphones from androids will probably take over the iphone models. (as long as they also work on the light sensors)

    I am an avid iphoneographer but i do feel its strange that the andriod community has not grown as fast. I think instagram has definiety played a part in growing the iphone community.

      I think Android community should start putting up more sites dedicated to android photography, plan events, meetups etc.

    I wish there were a bigger android photography community, it bothers me how much of a focus there is on the iPhone photography community and almost zero on android. But oh well, I just like taking pictures on my phone and it’s awesome to see how quick it’s advancing, especially with editing apps.
