Most Android phones now has a camera that competes with most digital cameras; not only is it a phone, but it's now a serious contender in the world of photography. Professional photographers are using it everywhere! But the camera can also be one of the most overwhelming features.

There are hundreds and hundreds of photo apps! How do you know which one will work best for you? This book looks at 30 photo apps you need, and shows you how to use them correctly.

Taking a picture on a phone is easy; taking a professional picture on a phone takes some skill, and this book will teach you that—-with the snarky voice that GadChick is known for, of course.

With a number of manufacturers now producing smart phones and devices using the Android operating systems the camera can be a deciding factor on which device that you choose. Although the camera and stock camera app will vary from device to device the opportunity to upgrade and experiment with different camera apps is always there. This guide is here to help you get the best from your Android devices built in camera and to help you build on it using the various effects and opportunities that you can find as part of the many camera apps in the Android Marketplace.

The Android stock camera features a flash with 3 settings, it also has scene options, white balancing, ISO settings and many auto features like auto exposure, auto focusing and face detection. Experimenting with these in different surroundings and lighting conditions will help you know which settings to use in any situation.
