Cell Phone Railfan
Author: ETFuller

Opportunities for railfanning pop up unexpectedly and it pays to be prepared. On a recent business trip, Kevin Tomasic discovered that there is a place for cell phones in railroad photography.

I have a Nikon D90 but i frequently use my IPhone 7 for pix I've had published in newspapers.
The biggest mistake I see with phones is people holding them vertically, after a lifetime of
viewing TV, movies, and most photos in a horizontal format.

I just took this pic with my Samsung Galazy S4.  27N with sitting by the IDa Rupp Library in Downtown Port Clinton, Ohio.  

I use my cell for now to get pics in the winter until I get my equipment.  I will be using a Nikon DSLR for my rail photography, as I feel using a DSLR I have better control.

I use my cellphone all the time for railfanning. You know what theys say, the best camera is the one you have with you. But I did also just upgrade one of my cameras to one with Bluetooth. It has made a huge difference in that I can simply transfer photos I choose from my camera to my phone very quickly and post them up on social media. Bluetooth is a game changer for me.
