Qualcomm Snapdragon group along with Kunzum organized a discussions meet/forum during one of the weekends to discuss main things people do with their Smart Devices and how they expect their cameras to work. Discussion was more about Mobile Cameras and how efficient they can be during travelling. Let's check out the Photo Journey to feel the environment at Kunzum and understand the kind of discussions happened.
I reached late and discussions were already happening at the cafe. I was mainly in listening mode and trying to understand technical things being discussed. It was mainly around Mobile technologies. Ajay was moderating the discussion and started talking about importance of Smart devices in travel. During the same he talked about post-processing stuff and useful photo-apps which are extremely helping in quick processing & sharing as you travel from one place to other.
Ajay asked me to add few things about Post Processing. At that point of time, I was not very sure about the question as I had missed previous conversations, so I also shared the way I use my Mobile Camera while traveling. I use HTC DesireHD camera which is a wonderful tool I always use during most of my trips. And depending upon the place, I also make sure phone has appropriate photo-applications installed. E.g.- In hills, apps for creating HDRs is extremely useful to better capture the clouds play and contrasty details. Applications for panoramas etc.
More demos and discussions continued. Qualcomm folks shared some of the main features in Sanpdragon powered smart-phones. Most of the folks looked quite interested in knowing all these details.
Kunzum arranged nice snacks with coffee during the meet and most of us got enough time to interact with each other.
As expected, few videos were shown. These were quite impressive and most of the clips were shot with smarts-phones.
