Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - MOBILES -

Buy­ing a high ca­pac­ity cam­era phone is no rocket sci­ence. Here’s a look at the best op­tions in the mar­ket. In­de­pen­dent film­maker Sak­shi Bha­tia dur­ing her trav­els to Euro­pean coun­tries no­ticed many fel­low film­mak­ers and di­rec­tors us­ing the lat­est iphones to shoot their short films. In her own words, “The iphone 4 comes very close to the Canon 5D when it con­cerns video cap­tur­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties, if one can live with a slightly low depth of field.”
