Step 4: Save paper, save earth

You can just click a picture insted of taking a printout from the screen . It saves paper.

There will be times when you will be walking in lanes and climbing staircases where you cannot see what lies in front of you . Instead of carrying a separate  torch ,you could use your camera instead! The AF-assist lamp is a strong light that can ensure that you do not bump into things or trip over sleeping animals. Alternatively , you can fire your camera's flash gun.

Step 6: As your phone dies out

If your phone's battery is running out and you need to make a call,Insted of being stranded without knowing someone's phone number , just take a picture of the phone's screen with the number on it!

You can also check if your remote is working . IR remotes leds light up when any of the buttons are pressed , view this led in the camera viewfinder and you will notice it light up if the remote is working .
