Use a smartphone instead of that cheap digital camera!

Hi folks! So for those of you that are in the market for cheap digital cameras, I urge you to stop and think about that for a second. Most low end digital cameras don’t take pictures that are that much better than what you can get in a high end smartphone! The latest smartphones offer even HD recording!

Now granted, there are much more manual features available to you in regular dedicated digital cameras, but most pictures people take are usually only shared over social media and don’t require the high quality most dedicated digital cameras provide.

As a matter of fact, someone once said the best camera is the one you have on hand, and almost everyone has their smartphone on hand!

So the next time you think about taking pictures, i urge you to just give it a try. Take pictures with your smartphone instead and see if that will do the trick. If it leaves you wanting, then go ahead and use a real digital camera, but if you find it’s just fine, you just saved yourself a few 100 bucks on a point and shoot camera!
