The Capital...taken by my HTC One X
It was Inauguration Weekend here in the U.S. and the world gathered to Washington D.C to witness the 44th Presidential Inauguration, attend the events, parade and galas. During this great weekend, it was only right to share my experience via BloggersForObama.com
with some amazing photos. If you hate lugging around your smartphone and DSLR camera, might I suggest taking a second look at the HTC One X+.
I'll admit, throughout the weekend, I was nervous about capturing photos with this device. The size of this phone and the extreme cold weather was a clear recipe for a butter-finger debacle. But the phone isn't as big as you think, it's only slightly taller than 5-inches. (Check out the full specs here
Not only is it a pretty stealth smartphone, but it actually takes great photos. A speedy one second start-up, rapid-fire continuous shooting, simultaneous 1080HD video and imaging, and an 8MP camera. And with HTC ImageChip get great shots regardless of lighting and movement...

Taking photos throughout the Capital on a frigid Martin Luther King holiday was easier than I thought with the continuous shooting mode (it captured multiple snapshots and even gave me the option of selecting the best photo from the shots.)
