Guest Post and Images by Picture Show by Graf - Application for Your i-Phone On July 12, 2010, Graf created a great photography application, Picture Show. As soon as it arrived on i-Tunes, I had to have it. I started snapping like crazy. It has the capability of adding several types of filters such as LomoGraphy, HolgaGraphy, Vintage, Vanished, Noir, Multi-exposures.... the list goes on. You can pick various frames, add textures and unique lighting effects I have heard many heated debates about whether Canon or Nikon makes a better image. … [Read more...] about Picture Show by Graf – Mini Review

Apple has released its latest OS for the iPhone. I was keen to note that the camera now features a built-in 5x Zoom. This function has been available through a number of third-party apps for the iPhone camera for a long time. I'm glad to see that Apple added that in its own software. Also new to this latest version is tap to focus video. Additionally Face and Places support has been added. While the current iPhone camera is far from the best in the world, it's certainly good enough to make some great images. The iPhone 4 camera is much … [Read more...] about iPhone OS-based Camera Enhancements
NOTE: Guest post and images by I hear the angry lynch mob rallying together already. Their faces are getting red, they spew words like "megapixels", "sharpness", "depth of field", "lens choice", "noise levels", "grub-n-ale". Purists surely will argue that the iPhone is not sophisticated enough to be taken seriously as a "real" camera. Surely you can't do professional work with it! Or can you? Years ago, I heard of a professional wedding photographer who decided she was going to use disposable cameras as her sole tool of choice at events. She … [Read more...] about Can the iPhone be used by “Real” photographers?

(EDITOR'S NOTE: Usually I rely solely on our tremendous in-house reviewer, Conrad Obregon for book reviews - which we publish every Sunday. Conrad is better at this than I am, but once in a while a book comes out that I feel the need to comment on. I assume Conrad will also review this title at a later date. Look for his reviews every weekend.) I just had a pleasurable two hours glancing through Chase Jarvis' brilliant little book The Best Camera Is The One That's With You. It's published by the New Riders Press and just came out this week. I … [Read more...] about Mini Book Review – The Best Camera is The One You Have With You
Photos and post by Andy Ihnatko EDITOR'S NOTE: You can see Andy's entire iPhone 3GS Flickr set here. Apple let me have an iPhone 3G S a week and a half before the release date. Here's a whole bunch of pix I shot as I tested out the features of its new 3 megapixel variable focus camera. The verdict? Awesome. It certainly isn't the greatest optical hardware you can get on a phone; we're still talking about a bead of glass perched a few molecules away from the film plane. But the fact that you can do "spot metering" puts it among the neatest … [Read more...] about First Look at the iPhone 3GS Camera
For me, one of the most exciting things about the Apple iPhone 3Gs announcement at WWDC 2009 was the inclusion of a better camera. While I always thought the original iPhone camera was "good enough," I knew it could be better. Well I was right. The new iPhone sports a three megapixel camera capable of much high-resolution images. The camera features auto focus, auto exposure, and auto white balance. It also allows what Apple calls "Tap" focus which allows you to pick something in the scene, tap on it and the iPhone camera will focus on that … [Read more...] about Apple’s New iPhone Includes an Improved Camera

Post by Ron Brinkmann Cross Posted at DigitalComposting.com Ive been saying for a long time now that cameras need to evolve to where theyre an open computing platform. To where all of the hardware on the device can be programmatically controlled by onboard software applications. Unfortunately we haven't seen a whole lot of movement in this area from the big camera manufacturers, other than a bit of SDK support by Canon and (finally) Nikon and some interesting but cumbersome hackish options. I know that part of the reason for this is that … [Read more...] about iPhone: The Perfect Camera?
While we cover a more serious brand of photography here at This Week in Photography, as an iPhone junky and a photographer, I couldn't help being amused by this statistic I saw on Flickr. According to Flickr, more camera phone photos on Flickr come from an iPhone than any other camera phone, including the much heralded Nokia N95. Flickr points out that the graphs are only accurate to the extent that we can automatically detect the camera used to take the photo or shoot the video (about 2/3rds of the time). That is not usually possible with … [Read more...] about iPhone Most Popular Camera Phone on Flickr
