    I am not a professional photographer, neither do I do a lot of Wildlife or Sports Photography and I don't print images larger than A3+ (13"x19"). So instead of spending more than 4000$ on a new mirrorless and a variety of lenses I decided to use my smartphone. For my needs a smartphone is better for me than an ILC as I can carry it anytime without the bulk. :)

    Here is my latest shoot in a studio using a Huawei P30 smartphone and 2 Innovatronix CPFlash 550W external flash. One on the left is used as a hairlight, while a another off camera flash in a softbox on the right of the frame . My interest in photography has definitely returned thanks to the smartphones. :)

    I agree. Using smartphone to take photos especially during travels is very very convenient.

    Hello Alex, and others I just created a new thread in "Beyond the Basics" about a tutorial in OFF Camera Flash Photography using Smartphones. Below is the link. Please feel free to ask me any question as I would enjoy that very much. :)

    Here is a shot I took about 4 weeks back. The instant feedback of digital capture and the ease of controlling all the power output of the flashes from you smartphone makes the technical side of photography a non-issue. Any beginner can now start taking pictures using off camera flashes. This shot uses 4 Innovatronix CPFlash 550 External flashes :)
