Apple Buys SnappyCam App Along with Developer SnappyLabs

image

The iPhone 5s camera is already a wonder, and clearly Apple has plans to make it even better, as indicated by the news this past weekend that Apple had purchased both the SnappyCam app and the one-man company that developed it: SnappyLabs. The app had been quite popular because it allowed users to take a burst of high-quality photos, similar to the burst mode Apple eventually incorporated into the iPhone 5s. Apparently creating this feature was no small feat, and Apple must have been impressed by the achievement of the developer, John Papandriopoulos. Apple's intention is likely to incorporate some of the impressive technology of SnappyCam into the iPhone's Camera app. But Apple also purchases companies with the intention of not only acquiring their technology but also their personnel. And so Papandriopolous will now be contributing his expertise as an employee of Apple.

SwannEye HD Camera Review

ADS-445 SwannEye HD Pan & Tilt All-in-One IP Network Camera ( $179.99)

4 out of 5 stars

One of the things I love the most about technology is how rapidly it evolves. What once cost thousands of dollars to purchase and required trained professionals to implement and use can become a commonplace commodity in a short matter of years. Such is the case with remote security cameras. One company that has thrived through these technology shifts is Swann, and their latest camera, the SwannEye HD, embodies the latest technological innovations while keeping the price affordable for anyone interested in visually monitoring security remotely. Let’s take a closer look at what the SwannEye HD has to offer.



How To Send A Full-Resolution Photo From Your iPad

image

I just came across a solution to a problem I never would have figured out if not for the great and powerful "Internets."

I was trying to send a full-resolution photo from my iPad via email. Normally on my iPhone, when I click send, I am presented with a pop up asking what resolution I want. Not so on iPad. Once I chose a photo and clicked to send via email, it automatically loaded the photo in a size that is not full resolution. I went directly to settings and hunted around for anything that seemed like it would control default resolutions. NOTHING!



From Nice to Dramatic

image

While walking through a lovely New Jersey Park with my wife, we came across this lovely scene. I quickly took the (color) picture and we continued along. Many lovely photos were taken that day.

When I came home I liked this one in particular. The problem was that while it was a nice picture, it just wasn't as good as I'd like it to be. I tried some simple color enhancements and still wasn't satisfied. I even tried a psychedelic look, but it just looked silly. So I put it to the side. 



How-To: Share Your Slow Motion Videos on Instagram

image

With the introduction of the iPhone 5s, Apple brought two new features to the device's camera: Slow Mo and Burst Mode. Both new shooting modes help capture great content that you can share with the ones you care about. But sharing Slow Mo vids is more difficult than it needs to be, especially on a service like Instagram. Luckily, we have a simple way to do it.



Optrix PhotoProX for iPhone 5/5s: Capture the Moments You Want, Wherever You Want

image

The iPhone 5s has been available for about a month now and the improvements made to its camera (Burst Mode and Slo-Mo) are some of my favorite features. While the iPhone is no action camera, cases like the PhotoProX from Optrix ($149.95) can help blur the line between the iPhone and something like the GoPro. But is it worth the price?
