Instagram favourite camera app of female university students

What Japan Thinks - Čt, 09/13/2018 - 18:50
jQuery(window).on('load', function() { var theConfig;theConfig = kenyn_piegraph_stats([21.9, 35.5, 30.4, 12.2], ["Default camera features only", "One or two", "Three or four", "Five or more"], 'How many photo manipulation applications do you use?', 'myChart1-camera-photo-manipulation.png');jQuery('.chart-canvas').show(); var ctx = document.getElementById('myChart1-camera-photo-manipulation.png').getContext("2d"); new Chart(ctx, theConfig); });

This interesting little survey was from TesTee Lab!, a survey company that specialises inthe youth demographic, and looked at female college students’ use of cameras and photo manipulation software.

A lot of the photo manipulation applications are unknown to me; I never do much more than the default filters on Instagram, and I don’t take enough selfies – well, I do take enough, absolutely zero – to feel the need to touch up my skin. On the other hand, I see occasionally on TV that Japanese celebs claim to do no-make selfies; while technically they might have been wearing no cosmetics at the time the shutter was pressed, they’ve very obviously airbrushed their skin and more often than not tweaked their chin and/or jaw line.

I’ve always wanted to buy these clip-on lenses for my smartphone, and as good fortune would have it, I was at a conference today and one of the goodies I got from IBM Japan was a set of three clip-on lenses. I could post the test fisheye selfie, but I don’t want to scare away too many of my readers! Perhaps I should download one of these apps and see if my mug can be “improved”…

Here’s some random Japanese taking a selfie:
