Marketing experts predict that by 2009, nearly 90% of all
cell phones will contain a camera, as manufacturers race to
create cheaper, easier-to-use models with more sophisticated
cameras, more pixels, flash units and even multiple lenses.
Already revolutionizing audiovisual communication, it's a
trend that will only grow more explosively-and who better
than National Geographic to create a how-to book aimed
directly at the millions who carry a camera phone everywhere
and want to make the most of it?
Created by two top
professionals, this generously illustrated nuts-and-bolts
guide is the first of its kind to treat these units as
genuine cameras instead of novelties, and the only
one to include a full-color photo-essay demonstrating the
full capabilities of the latest camera phones. In five
easy-to-read chapters, the book explains how to choose good
equipment; take better pictures; and store, print and send
the best images. Readers will find practical tips on
preventing or repairing water damage, protecting
easily-scratched lenses inside pockets and purses, and
retrieving accidentally-erased images. They'll also learn to
access the events, advice, and opportunities of the
burgeoning camera phone community, from film festivals to
news organizations, moblogs, and more.
technical savvy of CNet.com's Aimee Baldridge and the
creative skill of National Geographic photographer Robert
Clark, a camera phone pioneer, this compact yet
comprehensive reference combines up-to-the-minute expertise
with superb examples, at an inexpensive price that makes it
a perfect gift book-or an ideal impulse buy.
