As a people, it is a widely-known fact that we Filipinos love a good party. It hardly matters what day of the year it is, if you’re in the right place in the Philippines, there’s likely a fiesta happening. The festive nature of a Filipino fiesta is hard to beat, and if you want to go out of your way to experience one, you might as well take a few snapshots by which to remember the experience.
You could take your huge dedicated camera, but in a country that is made up of well over 7,000 islands, you going to want to pack light. The HTC One, one of the best smartphones in the market today, is just the solution. The HTC Ultrapixel camera on the rear of the device lets you take stunning, larger-than-life photos that look as good on its display as it does on the web, or at your next family reunion’s slideshow. Breaking the common misconception that more megapixels means a better photo, the HTC One instead focuses on the size of the sensor. The 4-megapixel camera, while seemingly behind in the arms race, is actually larger than the sensor found on some commercial point-and-shoot cameras, and captures up to 300% more light than most 13-megapixel phone cameras in the market today. The whole system is made even more remarkable by HTC’s dedicated imaging chip that allows the phone to have continuous autofocus, de-noise processing and optical image stabilization technology, all in one of the slimmest Android devices available.
HTC Zoe, one of the greatest innovations in mobile imaging, allows you to shoot high-res images that come to life in three-second snippets. These shots enable advanced photo editing options such as sequence action shots, video highlights and object removal to make sure your photos come out exactly as you want, with no unwelcome extras. Use the HTC One to capture Negros Oriental’s City of Lights celebration, and capture the beauty of all the colorful costumes, and the action of mock battle that features St. James the Greater’s intervention against a moro invasion.
The HTC One is available in Black and silver for PHP 32,990.
