    How-to Spend a Weekend in Shoreditch

    Thanks to Three UK, one of the largest mobile network providers in the UK, we had an opportunity to spend a weekend in Shoreditch. They invited us to this lovely part of East London to test out two iPhone handsets; iPhone S X and iPhone S X Max. The idea was for us to snap a shot of the city but to check out the incredible camera features. 

    Because of Three UK, we got to spend a weekend in Shoreditch and explored the city. We walked the length of the city armed with the iPhone handsets ready to shoot in various modes. I already know that I want the iPhone S X Max as it has some really cool features. With phones in hand and a photographer on hand to help, we went in search of things to snap.

For those of us coming from Oxford, we took the Oxford tube bus and got off at Hillingdon in west London. Taking the Metropolitan line, we got off at St. Pancras then took Northern Line to Old Street. From Old Street, it was an easy walk to Shoreditch and close stations include; Moorgate, Liverpool Street, Aldgate East and Shoreditch High Street.

    As you can see, Shoreditch and other nearby towns have so much to offer. Thanks to Three UK mobile network, we were able to see the city through a lens.

    • Portrait Lighting with five effects (Natural, Studio, Contour, Stage, Stage Mono)
    • Autofocus with Focus Pixels
    • Tap to focus with Focus Pixels
    • Wide colour capture for photos and Live Photos
