LAS VEGAS — It takes a lot more than a few photos to convey the mad whirlwind that is CES. With over 180,000 attendees (plus exhibitors), it is like being on a crowded, noisy, and delayed subway train for the better part of a week.
That said, there are always plenty of interesting scenes here worth capturing. One big improvement in my quality of life this year is that I captured all of my show images on a smartphone, instead of having to lug my Nikon D850 around the show floor. I used a Google Pixel 3 — my favorite for simple single shots, as it fits nicely in my shirt pocket and has good defaults — and a Huawei Mate 20 Pro, which has telephoto and wide-angle lenses, and also does a great job letting me tweak its settings for difficult scenes.
Note that images were resized before uploading, so they don’t completely reflect the quality of the original captures.
