With smartphones being available to almost everyone, food photography such as photos of my breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper is every where and all over the place. As such, a smartphone with a better camera often will garner better attention, after all people want their photos to look great and that’s what they can get with the ASUS ZenFone 3.
I wasn’t impressed with the ZenFone 2’s camera when I reviewed it last year, the ZenFone 3’s camera however turned out surprisingly good.
What’s most impressive was that these photos were taken in a dark environment, using only lights available at the restaurant itself.
On the down side, the images tend to turn out a little under-exposed (though it looks great on the screen) so it is advisable to up the exposure by a stop for best output across various viewing platform. It’s not a totally bad thing either, I’ve had images that were properly exposed during my course of using ZenFone 3 so my guess is that the ZenFone 3 keeps the settings to minimize blur so it settles with a less exposed picture – better to have a reasonably sharp under-exposed photo that you are able to post-process than a blurry photo that’s properly exposed.
I think the ASUS ZenFone 3’s camera is just lovely – if it works for food photography even under challenging lighting condition, it will work for other forms of photography as well. Check out what I did with the ZenFone 3 on my Interior Photography project.
