Hello Gents and Ladies...lately throughout the WRF forum there have been many complaints from the members,,Mods, Admins and myself..concerning photo quality of recently uploaded photos from camera phones. The photos are either out of focus or blurred..which has been a huge complaint with many of the collectors trying to authenticate an artifact. I do not know the the technical specs on your phones to adjust this focus...But what is helpful..and this also applies to regular digital cameras....make sure the lens is clean from dust dirt and finger prints.
The biggest problem mostly lays within the camera phone itself as the lens is very small and is easily thumbed up ,,touched or has pocket dust in residual areas. My advice for camera phones......use a Q Tip lightly dipped in rubbing alcohol...and if you are in a location where you need to take a quick pic of something that you seen..wipe it with a tissue or a clean part of your shirt...( this shirt procedure applies to men because we dont care about our shirts )
At least with this step it is better than having nothing at all to clean the small type lens.
Through out the WRF I have seen photos that looked like the lens could of used a good wiping...other times it could be essential to take the time once in awhile and clean the lens on your phone or digital camera.
Remember photos are everything on this forum and without them...we can not preserve history the way it needs to be kept.
If there are any ideas in cleaning tips or procedures please post them..but this is a gentle reminder to double check that spur of the moment of a life time shot....which we hear all the time..........."Sorry for the crappy pics".
Take the extra step as we all want to see what you have to share with this forum and help reveal some of the hidden things that the collecting community has not seen yet for the Third Reich Period. Regards Larry
