​As always a short stay in a beautiful city. Singapore deserves much more than 24 hours, but it was all the time I had available. I decided to take a walk around the "Marina Bay Sands Hotel" and "Marina Sands Gardens". I hope you enjoy the pictures below.
The following images were captured with the Nokia Lumia 1020, thanks to the excellent stabilized sensor and in camera noise management I was able to obtain usable handheld pictures despite the low light conditions.

After a couple of weeks with the fabulous Nokia Lumia 1020, I decided to try it at night, handheld, without a tripod and no flash to see what this Smartphone is capable of. I hope you enjoy the following images.
It's amazing the quality of the images, you can see how the optical stabilizer works, capturing sharp images that I couldn't achieved with any other smartphone. Noise control is very good, and I would say one of the best on any smartphone.

I am very pleased with the results, of course, for still images the camera raises the ISO causing quite a lot of noise, but I prefer having an image with grain than a blurred image. The exposure is correct, the optical stabilizer works nicely making quite sharp images despite the relatively long exposure.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have liked the images. Leave your comments and opinions bellow.

Japan, land of the rising sun. Their culture and traditions have captured the imagination of many and I've been wishing ince a long time to be able to visit to travel to Japan
I was able to go to the temple, although it was a rainy day. Narita-san Shinshō-ji is a beautiful Shingon Buddhist temple located in central Narita, Chiba, Japan. It was founded in 940 by Kanchō Daisōjō, a disciple of Kōbō Daishi.
Traveling with the Samsung Galaxy Camera proved to be a wise choice. The day was cloudy and rainy, so traveling light was good, and thanks to the manual settings in the "Expert Modes" I was able to get some nice captures.

I was fascinated with the environment that existed, the roar of the engines and the excitement of the people watching the race. So I leave here a few images of what I could capture that day for you. Hope you enjoy it.

Birmingham canals or the Little Venice in England. My first trip with the Galaxy Camera and my first impressions with it. The original post I wrote is in Spanish and I feel proud to say was one of the first blog entry written and post directly from a camera.
The versatility of the camera and the convenience of editing, uploading and publishing from it fascinated me. I'm really happy with their features and applications.

I was sitting in a cafe I writing this post, from the same camera. I hope you enjoy the following pictures.

And everything started here, first Starbucks's Coffee Shop.
Samsung Galaxy Camera (EK-GC100), no data recorded.

In my recent trip to Seattle, I was very lucky to visit one iconic place, the first Starbucks's Coffee Shop. Opened in 1971 in the famous "Pike Market Place".
Seattle is a beautiful city, one of my favorite destinations in the United States. I love walking through the streets, sitting in a cafe and enjoy drinking a good cup of coffee. Seattle keeps a beautiful tradition in their cafes, and  you can find one almost in every corner.

In this trip I realize how powerful is the Samsung Galaxy Camara. Taking pictures, editing on the go, blogging and uploading instantly to your favorite social media are just some of the cool features of this camera, the powerful 21x zoom makes this camera very convenient for travel photography when you want to walk around a city without heavy equipment.
