Today’s smartphones boast powerful cameras that fit right in our pockets. This means you don’t need an expensive DSLR or photography expertise to capture life’s beautiful moments. From photos to video, it’s empowering.

“What I absolutely love about how far the technology has come right now is it enables anybody to become a content creator, right? Because we all have a smartphone,” said SuperSaf, host of one of the U.K.'s largest technology review channels, during this episode of The Qualcomm Podcast. “And the creative output that we’re seeing now, not only on YouTube, but the likes of Instagram, TikTok, etcetera, you’ve got so many creators who now are just coming out with some really interesting stuff, which you wouldn’t even think about. And it’s all being filmed with smartphones.”

In this episode, host PJ Jacobowitz chats with SuperSaf and Judd Heape, our senior director of product management for camera technologies here at Qualcomm. They discuss current trends in smartphone photography, the role of AI, and the Qualcomm 480 Spectra ISP. What’s more, they go beyond smartphones to talk about how Qualcomm technologies are bringing advanced camera  experiences to PCs, auto, and IoT.
