That’s right folks – the time has come for an upgrade to my rinky dinky 1990’s flip phone. I’ve gotten with the decade and upgraded to a Droid from Motorola (yes, I am on Verizon). The upgrade was pretty smooth, although the “tech” at Best Buy had trouble migrating my contacts over. Since I use Gmail for most of my contact info anyway, I figured it would migrate in pretty seamlessly once I got online and sure enough, everything pulled down no problem.
So, how is this related to photography? Well, I can now take and share 5 MP photos with much more ease. The Droid also has an app for Audioboo, so I can go back to creating audio shorts regularly on all things photography too. Plus, as photographers, let’s face it, we are gadget-hounds, and this is definitely a gadget worth considering. Here’s a couple pics I took of the Droid the other day:
There’s the Main screen of the Droid, with my own wallpaper already selected as the background. The audio port is the 3.5mm standard, and another neat feature I like is the micro-USB port for charging and tethering to a computer (that’s right, tethering to a computer!) Check it out:
And, the headphone jack which is right next to the on/off button – makes it easy to find and access:
And, last but not least – the 5 MP camera! This is probably what I am most excited about!
If you’d like to see some actual pics from the camera… check out the new blog I set up just for that purpose. I’ll try to post a shot or two every day over at: www.mydroidpics.com
That’s it for today, but more photo goodness coming tomorrow, but I can’t tell you yet (it’s a surprise!)…happy shooting and we’ll see you then!
