Recently a group of friends got together to hike the scenic Shahbandar hills as part of our training to ready ourselves for the big climb — Mount Kinabalu. After an exhausting 1 hour 46 minutes hike not to mention also a rather intense one, we stopped by a nearby drinks hut for chilled coconut water like we always do so deservingly. Some of us began taking pictures on their smartphones — we’re creatures of often useful but annoying habits. In the pictures below, my good friend Cyril took a shot of me taking a shot of my subjects Wendy and Thanis taking a shot of themselves on her Samsung Galaxy S2
The kicker: The main scene was captured using my Samsung Galaxy S3 while Cyril got us all us all using his Canon EOS 5D Mark III and an ultra-wide lens. There’s no denying that smartphone cameras are indeed king considering its convenience and camera technology that’s getting progressively better, rivaling that of digital compact’s image quality.
