Do you ever get the unexplainable feeling that someone is watching you? Well, that’s because they just might. But if you’ve updated your iPhone to iOS 14, you may now be able to tell when this is happening and delete the apps that activate your phone’s camera in the background.
They say 13 is an unlucky number, but the 2020 iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS) proves the theory wrong. The 13th annual competition winners have been announced, and they’re absolutely gorgeous. I always love seeing winners of this contest because they prove what I often say – gear doesn’t matter, it’s all about the photographer.
Profoto has today announced AirX, a new update for the Profoto App which lets your iPhone communicate with the Profoto B10 series strobes. It synchronizes over Bluetooth and Profoto says it’ll let you “sync the full power of the flash tube” all the way up to 1/25,000th of a second.
At the moment, the feature only appears to be available for the iPhone. Whether or not that will change in the future is currently unknown.
Should you blur people’s faces when covering protests o should you not? This has been a heated debate lately, and opinions are largely different. But if you’re in the “blur the faces” team and you use an iPhone, now there’s a simple way to do it. A new shortcut lets you blur faces and strip all metadata from images in just one tap.
The coronavirus pandemic has moved all teaching, learning, and test taking online. However, there have been some hiccups with the Advanced Placement (AP) exams for US high school students. Those with iPhones have been failing the test because the College Board’s portal doesn’t support HEIC image format.
The original iPhone SE was introduced in 2016. It was a low-cost option for those that didn’t need all of the features and size of the larger iPhone 6S/Plus models also available at the time. It had similar hardware inside to the 6S but had the form factor of the iPhone 5S.
People have been wondering if Apple was going to continue this line, now that they’ve expanded out their flagship model into multiple models, and Apple has now answered that question by announcing the new 2020 model iPhone SE.
Huge international companies pay close attention to their public image and there’s nothing strange about it. But Apple seems to has gone a tad too far. According to director Rian Johnson, the company bans movie villains from using iPhones in screen.
Smartphone gimbals are pretty commonplace today. There are countless models from companies like Zhiyun, Moza, Feiyu, and a million other brands. It feels like we’ve had them forever, although they’ve only really been around for about four years. And sometimes, even today, we need to figure out a way to live without them.
You’re not always going to have it with you when you see something cool and want to whip out your phone to grab a sequence. Or perhaps, as filmmaker Brandon Li mentions in this video, carrying a gimbal defeats the whole purpose of using your phone. Putting his money where his mouth is, this 10-minute video shows us how we can get gimbal-like shots without a gimbal.
Last week we shared that Apple is opening up their specs for using an external flash with iPhone 11. That means that you will be able to use an external flash with the iPhone native camera app. (This is different from, say, Lume Cube’s dedicated app, or Goodx A1).
Now, Power Bank maker, Anker, is the first to make a dedicated flash built on the lighting connector. Here is we know:
Although not common, flash support is something that quite a few people have been asking for with smartphones. Nobody’s seriously looking to replace their DSLRs and mirrorless cameras with phones, but being able to fire your strobes from your phone can be handy for things like behind the scenes shots.
According to 9to5Mac, though, new specs shared with manufacturers on Apple’s Made-for-iPhone (MFi) licensing programme show that the iPhone 11 may soon support for some degree of native 3rd party flash support.
