Default Got Cell? -- Weinermobile

Here's one to start things off. Most people will recognize this as the Oscar-Mayer "Weinermobile". I chanced on to it about a month ago in the parking lot of a Target store.



Shot with HTC Hero 5 mpx camera, ISO200, WB auto, Metering mode average, auto-focus. Shutter speed and aperture are fixed and unknown. This phone had a major firmware upgrade just before this photo was taken. Prior to the upgrade, the controls on the camera were practically non-existant. Now, it has most of the settings that a P&S or DSLR have on them. If anyone knows the shutter speed and/or aperture, I would be interested in knowing. I am guessing around f22 for the aperture.

I recognize it from my childhood. Sing brightly: "I wish I was an Oscar-Mayer weiner." A shot like this makes me wonder why I'm invested in a DSLR.

Color rendition and overall feeling is nice - and I didn't see such a thing before

Thanks for sharing!

And faster FPS, and accurate exposure and more megapixels for cropping and.... But it's a heck of a good shot for a phone camera.
