Smartphone photography: the advantages at a glance

Everyone knows these moments: an incomparable situation or a unique moment and the digital camera is at home on the kitchen table. The development of smartphone photography is all the more practical.

The latest mobile phone models now have a high-quality camera, the images of which are quite equivalent to a compact camera. Since nearly all people carry their smartphone at all times, the most beautiful motives for eternity can now be held.

On the way to the perfect mobile phone photo

The built-in cameras in the newer smartphone models are technically very far developed. Of course, the photo quality does not reach the level of the images of an SLR camera.

Many users do not even know that some changes in the light and shadow conditions already lead to a refined picture structure.

In order to get the best possible photo, you do not only have to make some special settings. Certain technical rules must also be taken into account. Basic knowledge about zooming, using the flashlight or manually setting the sharpness should not be missing from a smartphone photographer. It is, for example, not uncommon for some smartphones to photograph with the maximum megapixel resolution by the manual re-adjustment.

Only through the correct use in combination with a suitable know-how succeeds with the smartphone impressively good pictures to shoot.

Improve and share your photos

Independent of the smartphone model, special applications help the cell phone Photos. Image processing apps such as Camera + / FV-5, Pixlr-o-matic, Snapseed, Photoshop Express or Instagram have numerous tools that can significantly improve the quality of shot images.

An extensive range of features, including adding color effects and picture frames, creating horizontal shots, removing red eyes, and trimming Image segments ensure that a unique photograph is created within a few minutes.

In addition to this form of image processing, some photo apps such as Instagram also offer entry into a large online community. As with other social networks such as Facebook or Twitter, the formation of a large circle of friends is also a priority at Instagram. Instagram provides its users with their own community, where they can upload their mobile images and turn them around the world. However, the transfer to friends and acquaintances can be controlled extremely easily via these and other photo apps.

Due to the complexity of functions, which offer smartphones not only in the field of photography, they are regarded as true all-rounder. It is not surprising that most people prefer this form of smartphone photography to classic photography.

Smartphone photos on the advance

Often ridiculed, the photos are with the mobile phone camera in the past years have become extremely competitive to compact digital cameras. Higher resolutions and more features enable impressive images to be "out of the wrist". (19459003)

The handy format of a smartphone is definitely the plus, compared to a digital SLR camera, even if (still) cuts in function and quality of the pictures.

In principle, it is always true: a bad photo, rather than a photo at all!

Bowers & Wilkins Introduces First Active Noise Reduction Headset


                                                     Bowers & Wilkins launches its first active noise reduction headset, our impressions


This has not escaped Bowers & Wilkins, the reduction of active noise (RBA) seduces, even if it tends to alter the audio signal. That's why the British manufacturer launches the PX on Tuesday October 3rd, its very first Bluetooth headset capable of erasing external noise. We were able to try it out at the launch conference, so here are our first impressions.


Positioned in the high-end with a suggested rate of 400 euros, the device, in circum-aural format, embeds a noise reduction system that is possible to set according to its sound environment. Three profiles are proposed: Office, City, Airplane. The first allows you to erase the ambient noise but not the voices, the second reduces the bass to eliminate urban noise, and the 3rd cuts all types of noises. Finally, the application iOS and Android also allows to choose a level of filtration of the voices.

Barded sensors, the headset features other interesting features, such as auto on / off. The unit automatically turns the music on when it is placed on its ears and is cut as soon as an earpiece is lifted or placed around the neck.

Supporting the Bluetooth 4.1 standard, the manufacturer also boasts its compatibility with the Qualcomm aptX HD codec. The PX has a wired and USB-C charging port, for an announced autonomy of 22h in Bluetooth + RBA, 29h in Bluetooth only, 33h in wired + RBA and 50h in wired without RBA. Yes, it means that even when wired, it will turn off when it is running battery, that is a shame. Note that the PX comes with a carrying pouch, a mini-jack cable and a USB-C cable. "align =" baseline "hspace =" 10 "vspace =" 5

Our First Impressions

First of all, the PX is astonishing by its very luxurious design and its extremely clean finish. When you put it on your ears, you immediately notice that it does not tighten the head too much and that it is frankly comfortable. It is not at the level of comfort of the helmets of Bang & Olufsen but it remains very satisfactory on this point.

Listening, we find the typical sound of the brand, that is to say a very balanced, very neutral sound. That will please some, but for our part, we find it a bit bland. Anyway, the audio definition seemed very good and the Bluetooth connection stable. Note also that the proximity sensors to use the auto on / off function of the helmet have worked perfectly.

Finally, we found the customizable noise reduction system interesting , even though the three profiles seemed quite close in practice. But most of all we were impressed by the voice filtering. Nevertheless, as with all brands, the reduction in active noise tends to add bass, and with the PX, it gives a sound a little muffled. But these hot impressions will have to be confirmed during a real test.

    How to decorate your home in autumn

    The trees lose their leaves, the days become shorter and the temperatures become increasingly cool: the golden season is here. Now is the best time to decorate the house in the autumn and turn it into a cozy, warm nest, where long autumn evenings can be enjoyed.

    Autumn not only gives nature one magical shimmer of gold, yellow and red nuances, but also provides inspiration for the beautification of your own four walls. With these simple tricks, you can decorate your apartment in autumn and it shines in new, autumnal shine:


    Even with small changes, a touch of autumn can be conjured into one's own four walls. As a rule, the living room is the center of the apartment, so it is almost necessary to embellish this room with selected decoration objects lovingly. This is also a good occasion to gather as a family around the kitchen table and to tinker together. Whether you are looking for an adventurous carnival, a scrolling pencil or a self-painted children's picture, every family member can contribute something to their taste and skill.

    The autumn is characterized by rich orange and red tones , A white sofa, for example, can be given an autumn look with a day blanket or pillow in orange and red tones.

    White or monochrome walls can be embellished with posters or prints in autumn. A particularly nice effect can be achieved with pictures, on which different greens or red tones prevail – such pictures can be found, for example, as art prints in online galleries, for example at Lumas. In the autumn you can calmly take on more contrasts – the only important thing is that the autumn colors prevail. Even with a few elements, the atmosphere and the style of a room can be significantly altered.

    2. Decoration self tinkering

    Nothing makes for more comfort in the evening than candlelight. Beautifully arranged arrangements of differently high, simple white candles or several tea lights in colored holders. With a little bit of fingernail and creativity, pretty leaves can be made from colorful leaves, rose hips and chestnuts.

    For this purpose, beautiful autumn leaves are wrapped in newspaper paper and placed between two heavy books to make them as smooth and dry as possible. Then spray a little hairspray over it, which gives the leaves shine and makes them more durable.

    In order to make the entrance area particularly inviting, one or two glowing pumpkins can be placed in front of the door – just like the Halloween decoration. Simply hollow out the pumpkins, carve a face or pattern, add a tea light, and the autumn decoration is ready. (19459009)
