Review: Bitplay Professional Smartphone Camera Add-on Lens System
The biggest job perk of being a phone store manager for almost 20 years is that I get to use any phones I want for as long as I want them. Camera functionality has always been one of the key components when I choose which phone to use day to day.
From the early days of the Nokia 12Megapixel N series, to the Sony 21Megapixel Z series and all series of Samsung Galaxy, Apple iPhone, and HTC one with moving photos, to the current Huawei mate and Google pixel AI-enhanced camera phones, I can say the technology under the hood of these phones has come a long way.
However, having been a smartphone photographer for all my adult life and taking commercial photos for events, product placement photos for Instagram and Facebook, and the ever-important family holiday photos, I don’t think a day goes by without me opening the camera app on my phone.
Some people might think the purposely built action camera and AI-enhanced photographic smartphone technology are overhyped. I can’t help but think the consumer grade point and shoot digital camera’s days are numbered.
