这个话题较为新颖, 因为它涉及一些摄影术语的英文表达, 比如数码相机 (digital camera)、单反 (single-lens reflex camera)、摄影 (photography).

I prefer to take photos by using my phone since I can take a photo within a second and the picture quality is fabulous. All I need to do is to push the home buttonon my iPhone, swipe up onthe little camera logoin the bottom right-hand corner of the screen and press the button tosnapa photo. If I were using a camera, I would need to turn the camera on and then wait for it to load, which would probably make me miss the perfectshot.
