What do you do when you get a hold of a smartphone with a rear camera of 13 megapixels?
The obvious answer is to use it for mobile photography. Without any doubt in mind, just seeing the screen display and the shots it was able to take, the Prestigio 5508 smartphone was a very useful tool in documenting my travel adventures in Bohol.
The photo above is an example of a shot taken using the said smartphone, and you'll see more of the amazing shots I took here in this particular article. I've actually posted a lot of them in real time while I was in Bohol but it is only now that I'm sharing about my mobile photography experience.
It so happened that I was invited to several days of media familiarization tour in Bohol to accompany delegates from the previous Diving Resort Travel Expo featuring underwater photographers from different countries namely who were all invited to be part of the expo as either speakers and/or journalist so they can write about the Philippines and how wonderful the waters of the Philippines for diving. Some of the organizers of the expo were also with us in Bohol so we were a big group of 16 individuals.
We stayed at the magnificently Amorita Resort with a great view of the beach. We will be spending time exploring the diving spots of Bohol, and will get to tour the countryside as well before we go back to Manila. You can imagine my delight being able to capture the beauty of these sceneries using the very handy Prestigio 5508 smartphone - it was created with selfies and groupies in mind, so you can have several marvelous photo ops.

I believe that the highest selling factor of the Prestigio 5508 is its remarkable camera. Thus I am posting here several shots taken with the smartphone.
Of course it's not yet comparable to the ones taken using a DSLR as we have more flexibility using those type of professional cameras but since these shots would be mostly used to be posted on social media like Facebook and Instagram, these shots are way more than just amazing. They are awesome enough for me.

The photos actually look a lot better when viewed on the crystal clear and bright display of the Prestigio 5508 smartphone but is not as impressive when now viewed on the computer screen. It's probably because of the larger size screen which now reduces the quality when viewed at the bigger screen display.
I especially loved my tarsier shots and the ones I took of the beaches. I was able to take a lot of photos but I can't upload all of them here. These are some of the best shots for me. I appreciate the quality of the camera very much, and would love to explore more of the smartphone.
I will tel you more about my usage of the Prestigio 5508 soon. Just keep checking the Wazzup Pilipinas blog site, and Facebook page. Also check out the YouTube channel.
