The other day, I was complaining about my camera. I'd prefer using my iPhone for all of my close up photos because the camera seems to hyper focus on one spot and blur out too much. This photo is from my phone.
This one is from my camera. I didn't like the base blurring, since I had no control over it. A soft background is nice, but the item itself, should be sharp, if you are trying to sell it.
Here is another comparison. First is the camera, second is the phone.
My problem was that the cloud sharing between my phone and computer was oddly timed. Somedays, a photo would appear the minute it was taken. Other times, it would take DAYS. Hooking them by wire, using iTunes, and many other tricks didn't help.
So, I couldn't count on using the pictures when needed to blog or add to my Boutique. I was getting frustrated by the problem. Then, I remembered the magic of using air drop!

So, Yay! Now, I can get better pictures of my goods to peddle. Before I pat myself on the back for being so dang smart, though, I'll bypass the part of the story where it took me about two years of complaining to come up with a solution.
Seriously, this is so much better. I'm happy to have figured it out, even though I wasn't so quick on the draw.
By the way, the camera is a Canon G9X. I've adored all of my past Canons, and was sad each time I did something terrible to one and had to replace it. But in the past, I'd been lucky enough that every replacement was better than the one before. Then, I got this one. And it is NOT a good fit for me, and it never, ever breaks, so I've been stuck with it.
The iPhone sure does beat out the Canon. Nice and sharp, and clear.
My phone is a 6s, and I daydream about replacing it with a newer one because I hear that the camera on them are even better.... but I can't justify that, since my own phone seems to be just fine. And these pics are pretty dang nice.
Not as good in low light, but still better than my camera. I'll keep taking photos with the Canon when I travel, because I've noticed that when there is no wireless to use the iCloud photo storage, the phone thinks it is full and won't take more pics. So, a camera in my purse is a great back up when needed.
But I will not be using that camera for items I'm trying to sell any more. I've been so disappointed my Boutique photos, but now that I've got the dilemma solved, maybe I'll feel like adding more to the Boutique?
PS- there are still some eggs in the Boutique if you are interested, and some had the photos replaced, some are still the blurred ones from the camera, though. Thank you to everyone who purchased eggs and wallpaper from me already!!
