Capturing Summer Moments

When the weather gets warmer we head outside for hiking, beach adventures and other great summer activities. But in these conditions it’s hard to bring a camera to capture these moments, for the fear of dropping it, the elements destroying it or the battery dying on you mid selfie. The DROID Turbo by Motorola in Gray Ballistic Nylon is an amazing innovation for those families on the move.

Last weekend I dropped my girls off at the in-laws so they could swim in their new pool and I went to visit my own Mother for her birthday. She wanted to go for a hike with my sister, so we took off in the Georgia mountains to explore and take pictures. We ended our journey at a lake to let her big black lab cool off in the water. It was a beautiful day of family bounding.

The 21-megapixel rear-facing camera launches with a simple flick of your wrist, helping you capture the action as it happens. Record video at 4K—creating a cinema-like experience—and play it back at the same quality. There is no need for the obnoxious “selfie sticks” either because you can take a picture with your voice. Quality is everything when you’re capturing photos of your family on your summer adventures.​

I have the worst time with battery life sometimes, so being able to get 2 full days of battery life is a huge change. It also could be the difference between getting lost in the woods or navigating back to safety (or calling for help). Water-repellent nano-coating and Corning Gorilla Glass help protect the device from spills and scratches. Premium gray ballistic nylon backs offer rich color and texture but remains lightweight and feels great in your hands.​ It also has three accent colors to choose from, metallic orange, violet and blue​.

The thing I love most about the DROID Turbo by Motorola are the voice commands. Along with being able to take a picture with your voice, you can do all kinds of other voice commands, like posting to Facebook or searching the elevation for the mountain you are scaling.

I’m looking forward to more outdoor summer adventures with my family. Everyone is really wanting to go back to the beach this year. My husband just wants to go fishing, so anywhere with water will be good for him.
