Tip of the Week

Wow! Finally, everything a person needs can fit right in the palm of their hand. Not only can cell phones make phone calls, connect to the Internet, and send text messages, but they can also take digital photos with built-in digital cameras. These digital cameras take pretty decent photos that can be uploaded to a website provided by the carrier, sent to other friends and family members, used as a screensaver or on caller ID, or even printed out. The user can sign up with the carrier to have unlimited or limited photo options that may or may not use up their minutes. Plus, most carriers will include an online photo album that can be accessed by the user or anyone they give permission to in order to view and print the photos.

Most mobile phones that have digital cameras will include a flash option, self-timer, image controls, fun tools, and the ability to change camera settings. The self-timer can be used to take a picture of the user just as a regular self-timer on a digital camera would be used the fun tools may include fun frames to put around the picture taken (the most common frames on camera phones include holiday themes, graduation designs, wedding bells, picture frames, or birthday borders. Other fun tools include the ability to change the look of the picture being taken (by applying sepia, black & white, negative, posterization, or embossed photo features).

An additional fun tool may allow the user to take up to two or more shots at the same time for motion pictures or just a double take. The image controls manipulate the brightness and white balance of the image.

Lastly, some camera settings include options such as resolution, quality, shutter sound, status area, and auto delete. These are just some of the enhanced basics available on many digital camera phones.

Of course, if the person is looking for outstanding quality they should invest in a real digital camera. The cell phone digital camera is made mostly for fun and opportune moments but they do not have the exact same quality as a regular digital camera.
