Cell phone cameras can take some great photos of your family, friends, vacation spots, and selfies. However, when it comes to real estate photos, should you hire a professional?
See for yourself.
Years ago I had a Kodak V705 dual lens camera. This camera took great photos of smaller rooms because the dual lens acted like a wide-angle lens. However, after many years of usage, one of the gears broke and I couldn’t get a replacement since Kodak went out of business. I tried two other digital cameras, but no other manufacturer made a dual lens. I would have had to carry around a camera bag with an extra lens, which was cumbersome for me.
Dual Lens Cell Phones
Now, some of the new cell phones do have an option for a dual lens. In fact there are 16 different models (i-phone, Samsung, LG) that offer a dual lens. One is on my Christmas list. But will I stop paying for professional photos? Absolutely not. A professional photographer knows how to take the right photo to capture the right mood. Some people just have that artistic flair. Just as I wouldn’t expect just anyone to stage a room appropriately, I know I cannot do as good of a job taking photos as a professional. They are worth their reasonable fee, especially when they use photo-enhancing software to make each photo its best.
If you are trying to sell your house, why not use a professional to take the MLS photos? The goal is to entice people to take time to look at the property.
Does this photo (taken off the MLS) entice someone to come take a look? Use a professional.
