What is the most precious thing to a food photographer? Any guess? Yes, it’s the camera and lens and all fancy gears, not the food. Surprising, right? Being a food photographer I’m often asked about my gears. And I’ve noticed people are more interested to know what I use to click my daily life stills, compared to the food photographs for the blog. I mostly use my DSLR for food photography and my mobile camera to click my daily life and sometimes I use both at the same time. Now you may question why on earth I pair such high end camera with such ordinary one! Because, when the phone camera provides nothing but crystal clear clarity with vibrant colors in your photos, you won’t even think about a DSLR camera. As a matter of fact if the name is Asus Zenfone2, I don’t think you have to re-think on it! By any chance did you miss the above photo? It’s taken from my mobile phone only; in a low light setup. (I’m sure you will scroll up again).
There was a time when I was completely dependent on my DSLR and it was like my most trusted pet; wherever I used to go it would follow. But since it is as bulky as me, I had to buy a good number of oversize handbags (such a wastage of money) to keep all the lens and body under one roof. As I dint want to spend another fortune (after those worthless handbags) on a compact point & shoot camera, I needed a sleek mobile phone with superb clarity (cause, good is not enough for me) high resolution camera. The need became my desire quickly and finally that has ended with new Asus Zenfone2.
It is an ultimate experience to shoot with a device which is only 3.9 mm thick and have 13/5 MP rear/front camera with f/2.0 aperture. It is powered by 1.8GHz 64-bit Intel processor and has upto 4GB RAM for unbelievable performance. Moreover it has a unique access key to open specific applications directly from phone’s locked desktop. So you can directly open the camera (and many other apps) from locked phone without wasting your time on unlocking the phone. It’s like a bonus feature for a street photographer like me. But hang on you dint hear the best part yet, the price; starting from 13k only. When I said the phone is handy I meant it by all possible aspects, you see.
Now you know my tricks from the sleeves and of course all the possibilities with Asus Zenfone2. Have you picked your device yet?
