Editorial #120: Traveling Overseas-Taking Pictures and Videos

Dr. Z is on vacation in England.

Dr. Z is using his iPhone to take pictures. The iPhone is an amazing device for pictures. But the iPhone memory is limited if you take a lot of pictures. You cannot add a SD memory card to the iPhone. Dr. Z has taken a lot of pictures on his vacation and is getting close to 1,000 pictures and he s starting to run out of memory on his 16gb iPhone so he deleted some apps from his iPhone to make room for more pictures. This has never happened when in normal use back in the states because one does not take that mny pictures when you are at home and you can save pictures on your computer and then delete them from your iPhone. Dr. Z did not take his computer with him on this trip.

The iPhone uploads pictures to his iCloud account automatically using photostream, but it hs a limit of 1,000 pictures so it’s crunch time.

Dr. Z is now using Dropbox to upload his earlier pictures to make room for more pictures. After uploading, he deletes the pictures from his iPhone.

The iPhone is also a great camera. He also takes along a digital camera wih 12x optical zoom for good pictures at a distance. The iPhone has digital zoom which is not as good as optical zoom.

Dr. Z also uses a Flip camcorder for videos. He does not take videos with his iPhone because it takes a lot of memory.

Lesson learned…get an iPhone with bigger memory next time.

Dr. Z is having a great time by the way.

Dr. Z cares about your communication access.

Disclosure: Dr. Z (Philip W. Bravin) is associated with CSDVRS, currently its Vice-President of Business Development
