Ztylus Metal: A Clever Camera Case

image

With a name like Ztylus, I was expecting a stylus, but instead Ztylus gave me the Ztylus Metal Camera Kit ($114.95) to try, which includes an iPhone case and 4-in-1 revolver lens. I came away impressed. 



The Stealthy Selfie Stick for Spies and Stars

image

Selfies are big and a selfie stick is the only way to get a good shot without your arm being in the way. Even Tom Hanks took an epic selfie with David Letterman, but to make it a nice photo, he used a selfie stick. Now some museums and events have banned selfie sticks, including Apple's own Worldwide Developers Conference. So if you're going to bring a selfie stick, you will want an ubtrusive stealthy model.

Apple Posts "World Gallery" Web Page Highlighting 77 Stunning Photos Taken with iPhone 6

image

On Sunday Apple posted a new World Gallery web page that features stunning photos by 77 photographers taken with the iPhone 6, which Apple describes as "the world's most popular camera." Each photo is accompanied by a caption that gives the name and location of the photographer, a description of what makes the photo effective and the techniques used, and the apps used by the photographer. One can glean a lot of tips for taking great photos by reading the descriptions.



Olloclip Does it Again, Big Time

image

I've written often about Olloclip and their clip-on lenses for iPhones. Their latest batch supports both the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, using an insert for each phone. This is great if you have both types of phones in your household, or if you might upgrade later. We have a few iPhone 6 phones in the family, but might add a 6 Plus to the household, so it's always nice when accessory makers keep multiple devices in mind.

CES Recap: Home (and Pet) Monitoring!

image

This should be the year of home automation, as Apple's HomeKit specification starts to take root, and CES had a number of products in that arena. The Ring Video Doorbell is a novel product that can replace a doorbell, using the existing wiring. It lets you see who is at the door and communicate with them thanks to a microphone and speaker, all via the free companion app running on an iOS device. This means you can be thousands of miles away and see when a visitor, delivery person, or intruder approaches your door. It's a great idea and at $199, it's reasonably priced. The Ring can also be operated by battery, so you can add a video doorbell to a gate or just about anywhere, as long as it's within range of your home's Wi-Fi.
