The History of Cameras ... iPhone Style

image

The history of cameras goes back more than one hundred and fifty years. The History of Cameras App doesn't go through every aspect of it, but it does cover the highlights...in an interesting way. There are screens that show specific bits of information, such as how Richard Leach Madox perfected the dry plate. Accompanying each of these nuggets is a button that lets you see ... kind of ... how the process works. It's really a fun and very interesting App ... and it's free. If you are interested in photography, try this one for sure.



Video for the Video Idiots?

image

When it comes to making videos, I'm one of those who just can't do it. The editing software seems like it wants me to get frustrated. I rarely take any videos because I know that no one, including me, will want to see it. However, there seems to be a possibility that this might change. Enter Magisto! It seems as though the folks who made it had me in mind. It's an iPhone App that does the video editing for you. How do they do it? Who knows...and who cares? As long as it gets done, I'd be happy. I've been doing some experimenting with it and it seems to work. I'll be uploading a video in the next few days.



Hackers' corner: enhancing the iPad 2 camera

Now that iOS 5.0.1 has become hackable, I've been continuously receiving requests to make my previous, strictly iOS4-specific iPhone 3GS / 4 video camera enhancer tool (available in Cydia: see THIS) iOS 5-compliant.

Having successfully closed a major project I've been working on for months, I immediately moved to devoting my free time to updating my tool.



iPhone vs. Brownie Hawkeye

image

The Brownie Hawkeye reminds me of the current iPhone. Why? Here are some comparisons:

1. Both are (or were) ennormously popular.

2. They both are known for portability. Although you couldn't keep a Brownie in your pocket it could be easily carried around...especially if you compare it to the view cameras that it replaced.

3. They are both very simple to use. You took a picture with a Brownie by looking down into the finder and clicking a button.

4. They both became the de facto leader in the field. Apple dominates just as Kodak did.

5. Simplicity defines both cameras.



TumbleOn to the best of Tumblr photo blogs!

If you are a Tumblr fan, and looking for an app that makes it easy to follow your favorite photo blogs (or find new ones), TumbleOn might be just what you have been looking for. In similar fashion to reader apps like Pulse, TumblOn leverages the smooth side-scrolling features of the iPad touch screen to make it easy to browse your favorite feeds. The app also provides handy quick-pick services that help you drill down on the best blog content, and even reblog it on your own tumblelog site.

Photo Canvas Review

The photo canvas app is a very simple app which allows you to take pictures with your iPhone and send them to this company to be printed on high quality canvas and shipped to you.  With the newer iPhone 4 and 4s the camera is able to take high resolution pictures and since people have their phone with them all the time, this is how many people are taking most of their pictures.  Unfortunately that used to mean that it was difficult to move the pictures over to your computer, edit them and have them printed professionally. 



iGLASSES: Simple, Funny, Free

iGLASSES, a free app recently launched by Green Cloud, offers iOS users that fancy themselves comedians a quick, fun way to transform their photos into something funny.

There’s no real way to make the app sound more complex than it is.  You use iGLASSES to add virtual eyeglasses to the subjects of your pictures.  There’s a huge variety of glasses to choose from, and all of them are good for a giggle.  They range from goofy sunnies to absolutely bizarre eggs sunnyside up, from shutter shades to geeky plastic frames, and everything in between.
