Happy National Photography Day! It seems like every day is some kind of zany excuse to celebrate something these days, right? Recently I have been participating in the Lenovo Insiders program. Essentially we get to try out and tell you about some great tech as soon as it hits the market and help you make a decision on which product might fit your needs. I was sent a Lenovo Yoga HD Tablet. For photography – or anything for that matter – the screen is amazing. The sharp, high resolution makes all your photos POP.
As a photographer, there are certain times where you don’t want to bring all your equipment with you when going to a site. Maybe you’re just scouting for available light at a certain time, or maybe you’re at brunch and you want to take photos discreetly. This becomes difficult with a bulky high-powered DSLR.
“But, OMG, people who take photos with their tablets look so awkward and ridiculous,” you might be thinking, “And the photo quality isn’t even that good!”
To that, I challenge you to a game. I took my high-powered professional Canon 50D DSLR and my Lenovo Yoga HD Tab (at a fraction of the weight) and put them to the test (unedited). Can you spot which is which? Yoga or DSLR? Try not to overthink it 😉
