Toy Story 3 Premier at Mid Valley (with pics taken with the HTC Desire!)

A whole bunch of us (bloggers) were invited for the “Meet & Greet the Toy Story Characters” session followed by a premier screening of the movie in Mid Valley Megamall today.

We were all wondering which characters exactly we were to meet…

..till we saw …


Buzz & Woody!! :yahoo: All the way from Hong Kong too!

Woody & Buzz came on stage for a quick photography session with the crowd after some preliminary rounds of Q & A and games with the audience. The host for the event was funky, bubbly Azura from Disney.

The Disney host, Azura. She was a bundle of energy on stage! Guess it comes with the job! ;- )


All the images here are taken with the HTC Desire. I have been pretty amazed with the camera capabilities so far & it has instilled enough confidence in me to actually leave my Point & Shoot at home!

Since Monday, I have used the camera under numerous circumstances & lighting, and with the exception of clubs/pubs, the picture quality for normal objects photography deserved a special mention.

Below: Clear, crisp pictures. Please don’t be silly & tell me your DLSR/prosumer cams can take better pics. This is a HP cam ok!

I wouldn’t say I have used the camera to the best of it’s technical capabilities. I’m sure with further fooling around with the various options, I’m bound to discover more of it’s potential. Right now? I’m thrilled to that I got better pics to post on my blog! 😉
I remembered that for this group photo below, the face recognition feature was activated and each of the individuals’ faces in the screen was “box-ed” into focus. Cool! :good:

    1. Rebecca

      Haha! Better than me P&S also ok!

  2. sophia

    Wow, the pictures are definitely rather good, considering it is a cellphone! Love that it has face detection capability! That’s so cool!

    1. Rebecca

      Yup! Totally exceeded my expectations! :good:

  3. bryanlyt

    Hi Becky!

    Perhaps a little editing would be nice on the pictures. Overall, not bad.



    1. Rebecca

      Oh yes! I didnt edit the pics as I wanted to showcase it as it is (taken frm the HTC Desire) but imagine if I edit the pics further.. could possibly turn out as good as a dLSR? :yes:

  6. mynjayz

    For point and shoot camera using ur HTC Desire turns out very clear and sharp. It’s very impressive! Tho the colour is a bit pale. (if you could edit the colours a bit, it would be perfect)

    I guess this kinda photo quality is better than your digital camera I would say. 😉

    1. Rebecca

      I know right..the colours aint’ arresting enough. Well..better than my P& S and much less editing work that nds to be done. Also, less “luggage” in my bag sicne I do not nd my P&S.

  7. Hanie Hidayah

    wow the quality of photo is definitely better than my BB or even my compact cam!

    1. Rebecca

      I think the camera can be a gd selling point for HTC Desire.

  8. emt training

    My cousin recommended this blog and she was totally right keep up the fantastic work!

  9. Clayton

    Camera looks good. Reckon it comes with zoom as well?

    How about night shots with flash? Any auto focusing problem?

    1. Rebecca

      Zoom yes! Nx post coming up!

      Night shots? I’m afraid it cant beat a DLSR. Auto focusing yes, only on small objects.

  10. Josh Lim

    Shots are pretty good. Very crisp and good contrast. However the colors seem very washed out…but this can be fixed using the phone software. Next time set the color saturation higher 🙂

    1. Rebecca

      Yes yes.. seems tht the colours are not quite right no?
      True, I must learn how to use the controls on the Desire!

    Great article very important information i found here!

    I attended a special screening for Toy Story 3. I went in with HIGH expectations. I LOVED the first two Toy Stories movies. Toy Story is a beloved franchise that almost everyone that I know loves the first two films. Now how about the 3rd film? Well all I could say is that it lived up to my unbelievably HIGH expectations and then some. This is such a good film. It has the laughs, magic and best of all the entertainment. The new characters in the movie feel like they were in the previous two films, they were that engaging and really worked well in the movie. I truly believe that this is one of the best Trilogy of all time. Number 1 is The Lord of the Rings. 10/10 Go Watch It

  13. Mac

    ‘Toy Story 3’ is a better film than ‘Wall-E’ and ‘Up’ in that it succeeds completely in conventional terms.
