In September 2015, Alcatel Flash introduced its Flash 2 camera phone packing a 13-MP gSight. rear camera and a 5-MP profile cam front camera. With its outstanding features, Flash 2 has become one of the bestselling smartphones in Southeast Asia where it was sold out in ten minutes after its release.
What triggered the Flash 2’s boom in sales is its best-in-class mobile photography features, allowing users to gain rich and fun photography experiences that complement the lifestyle of people who have the knack for outstanding snapshots.
Flash 2 provides users a handy substitute of unwieldy cameras to quickly capture beautiful sights by virtue of its 13-MP rear camera fitted with Samsung’s advanced ISOCELL sensor technology. This delivers a better image quality and higher color fidelity.
Furthermore, its camera is comprehensively optimized with extensive enhancements for low-light photography such as the RealTone flash that provides more natural supplementary lighting and 4/2.0 aperture allowing in more light.
“This feature enables users to capture scenes and the starlit sky awesomely and easy,” Wong said. “Low-light situations like cloudy days and evenings are usually situations where users are the least confident in mobile photography. But with Flash 2, they no longer have to worry about low-quality shots.”
Flash 2 also uses the latest Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF) technology with a focus time as short as 0.3 second to quickly capture moving objects or fleeting sights. Subjects may be captured in seconds by double-pressing the shutter button to start and auto focus instantaneously.
According to Alcatel Flash’s e-commerce director Yogi Babri, the latest Flash 2 version packing an F182 0.28X fisheye lens with a minimum focus distance of 18 mm and MACRO 5X micro-lens of 40mm now allows even stronger mobile photography performance especially in terms of enhancing clarity and controlling blurring.
Lastly, the Flash 2 offers a full range of camera modes including Super Fine, HDR, Panorama, Track, Live Photo, Multi-Angle and Picture-In-Picture features.
Aside from the rear camera, Flash 2 is also equipped with a 5-MP front camera that has a beauty mode and wider 84 degree-angle that fits in more people in one frame.
The future of photography
Photos taken with smartphones are expected to rise to 78.8 percent in 2017, according to the 2015 Mobile Photographer Behavior Analysis Report by Camera360. This only shows that photography is no longer exclusive to professional photographers but also to anyone who carries a smartphone for everyday use.
Wong concluded, “As smartphones increasingly replace traditional cameras and everyone becomes a photographer, the human history of photography has been rewritten and will start a new chapter.”
