"A good photograph is knowing where to stand." -Ansel Adams.
The only rule in photography is that there are no rules. However, there are are number of established composition guidelines which can be applied in almost any situation, to enhance the impact of a scene.
Leonard Fibonacci discovered that if you have a sequence of numbers beginning with 1,1, where the next number in line is the sum of the previous two, then the sequence will progress towards a more and more exact representation of the golden ratio. The fibonacci sequence is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, etc.
Oddly enough nature tends to organize growth and limbs according to this sequence. For example the ratio between the length of limbs of your fingers is the golden ratio. The ratio between the length of your nose and the distance from the bottom of the chin to the bottom of the nose is the golden ratio. The spiral growth of crustaceans follows the golden spiral. The divine proportions are an in-built (or in-grained) aesthetic parameter we judge beauty by.
This camera focuses on composition and not on playing around with settings like ISO, White balance, Exposure, Saturation, etc... settings like this should be done automatically so that all you need to do is to compose and take the shot.

Sample Usage of Sensor Triggers
* Use Tilt trigger to shoot overhead shot with your phone raised in one hand. Adjust the tilt until it matches the trigger setting. This feature ensures you have a good angle when doing overhead shots. Another example is shooting at feet level.
* The virtual Horizon can be used to make shots leveled to the ground. The Horizon angle trigger can be used to automatically shoot when the phones angle matches the setting angle.
* The Sound level trigger automatically shoots when ambient sound level reaches the setting level. You can use this as remote shutter when shooting on a tripod or use it to detect noise.
* Use the Camera screen locking so that you can hold the phone in any way without unwanted interaction on the screen. This is very useful when doing overhead shots with tilt trigger.
With these tools you can be more creative with the way you compose images.
MORE FEATURES SOON.
