Hey, folks! I’m still the rustic phoneless blogger that I am, but I’m considering getting one soon. These stunning, high-resolution photos of gorgeous Caramoan were captured on a Nokia Lumia 1520!
Eventologist Tim Yap, together with the Philippine’s youngest governor, Migz Villafuerte, recently hosted a five-day vacation with friends to Caramoan Island located in the lower eastern part of Camarines Sur. After recently experiencing firsthand the capabilities of Lumia phones in Lapland Finland, Tim wanted the Caramoan gang to also be able to capture their most amazing moments with the gorgeous Carl Zeiss lens of the Lumia 1520.
Around 30 VIPs from the fashion, music, television, and tourism industries, which included Phoemela Barranda, CJ Jaravata, Bubbles Paraiso, Yassie Pressman, Daniel Matsunaga, Miss Tourism International Angeli Dione Gomez, Charina Sarte, models Tommy Esguerra, Javi Martinez-Pardo and Nicolas Padilha, renowned fashion photographers Anton Aguila and Mau Mauricio, stylist Tess Villareal and singer-actor Ryan Gallagher, explored the secret paradise in this first-class municipality that extends into the waters of the Maqueda Channel on the north and east, and Lagonoy Gulf on the south.
Armed with Lumia, the group had such an easy time documenting their Caramoan experience. Their photos of island-hopping activities from diving in Langkipaw Cliffs, theme parties in Hunongan, survivor/relay games in Lahus and Gota, to wakeboarding in Cadlan, Pili, scream nature, fun and adventure. In my head, I’m jealous somehow.
Don’t ask me tech questions. All I know — the Lumia 1520 and 1020 are equipped, respectively, with 20MP and 41MP adjustable Pro Camera and enhancement and creative tweaks can be done on the “creative studio” app. So you do all the editing right there on the phone. Aren’t detail and sharpness fantastic? Who needs a back-breaking DSL cam? Hmnnn.
