Spend a few dollars on smartphone apps
Your smartphone is really the ultimate point and shoot camera. It’s ultra compact, it’s always with you, it has a built in processor that’s actually competitive with most computers and it’s connected to the Internet.
Don’t forget that adding apps to your camera can increase your phones abilities even further.
Most people are aware of filter-based apps like Instagram, but there are some amazing things you can do like panorama stitching, tilt-shift effects, color manipulation and correction, etc. There are even apps that allow you to manipulate the actual camera and control exposure, focus and what actually makes the shutter fire.
