Whether traveling for business or pleasure, taking pictures is a great way of keeping memories and sharing experiences with family and friends.
It is always convenient to have a digital camera handy although sometimes, especially when travelling for business, it is just another item to carry around in your pockets or purse, on top of things like your wallet and cell phone.
This is why using your Nokia Lumia to take your travel pictures is so convenient, since you will probably be carrying it anyway.
But the great advantages of using your Lumia 800 to make great travel memories do not end there.
The Lumia 800 camera will automatically find your current location and will include it in the name of your picture. So if you are visiting several cities or places, your Lumia will keep track of it for you.
The ample touch screen on the Lumia 800 allows for easily aiming at object. Zooming in and out is also conveniently achieved by pinching, same as with most touch screen devices. Tapping the screen will permit the user focus the picture on a specific zone, object or person.
In regards to customization, you can leave the settings at automatic configuration (ideal for capturing a wide range of subjects under most conditions) or manually select options such as face detection, portrait, sports, landscape, party, close-up, snow, beach, night, and even text. So there is no need to sacrifice quality of your pictures just because you are using your mobile device as opposed to a more sophisticated digital camera. Of course, you can also select the quality (and hence size) of the pictures (small, medium, large) and with convenient options such as setting a key for activating the camera.
Another option that might be useful when taking travel pictures is activating or deactivating the flash, with an option of leaving it in automatic.
When accessing your pictures and reproducing them on the device, you can view them by folder or date. The Lumia also features a dynamic slide show, which can even include background music.
And last, but not least, sharing pictures is extremely easy. You can send them by email, text message, Bluetooth, or directly upload them to your favorite social network with a couple of clicks.
In summary, when planning your next travel, don’t worry about your digital camera; just make sure you take your Lumia phone.
