Sony has just announced its release of the world's first smartphone-attachable lens-style camera!

Snap it on your iPhone, prop it on its legs, or hold it in your hands, the DSC-QX10 or QX100 (coming soon) does not require any wires or very much technical know-how. If you can download an app and press the camera icon on your iPhone, you will be well on your way to snapping images pretty much right out of the box.

TRYPTpic: Learn About Instagram's New Companion App to Spice Up Your Profile

image

Let’s face it, we all want followers. And in today’s Instagram-world, getting followers requires more than just posting a brilliant photo… unless you’re a super-model or one of those kids from The Hunger Games. In fact, you might find yourself deploying a multi-level marketing campaign in order to get more eyes on your Instagram feed, where that oh-so-gloomy blue button urges visitors to “follow.”

Well, if you want that button to turn gamma-ray green, you may want to give TRYPTpic ($0.99) a try. TRYPTpic allows you to create a series of related panels out of a single image, and post them into your feed so they appear as a singular image. Crazy, right?! I know.

Here are two shots of my feed, pre- and post-TRYPTpic. I know what you’re thinking… I’m turnin’ that blue into green!!

How To Create Tunnel Vision Photographs Using Only a Straw and Your iPhone

image

The iPhoneography Tip of the Week series features tips, tricks, and tutorials to help you take better pictures with your iPhone.

I received a Facebook message from a friend a short time ago challenging me to describe the method she used to create an image of a rose surrounded by a silky-pink tunnel. I found out she used a straw to create the beautiful image, and I decided I would experiment with the trick, and see what I could create.

Here is what you will need to try it yourself:

1. Scissors;

2. A straw (your choice of color);

3. The subject;

4. Your iPhone!
