Mobile phone cameras

Why is it, whenever you see a photo somebody has taken with their mobile phone, it is always in portrait.

If I ever need to take a picture of a car or senary, I always turn the phone sideways so I get a landscape photo. Only if I am taking a tall image like a building/tower/letterbox etc do I use portrait.

When they are shown on telly like during the news, they usually have to blur the background to give you something to see.

Do people not know how to take a photo? -Angry.png-

Re: Mobile phone cameras

Not a something us dumb phone users have to deal with. I am amazed how expensive some of these phones are. And when you see these iPhones being advertised on TV, I have to stop & figure out,sometimes, if they are actually advertising a phone or a camera.

Re: Mobile phone cameras

Don’t know where I’d be without mobile phone. Been in industry 23 years before caretaker job last September, advent of phone camera a boon. Looking into dark ceilings or behind cabinets easy Peasy now. Agree about landscape issue though.
