Adobe has just announced a major workflow enhancement in Lightroom for iOS. Soon, all iPhone and iPad users will be able to directly import their photos into Lightroom on their device. Adobe Product Manager Tom Hogarty shares a sneak peek of the upcoming feature and make sure to check it out in the video below.
Long before Instagram, Hipstamatic was once the camera app to have on your smartphone. It’s taken a bit of a back seat to the social media platform giant, as well as other apps like Snapseed, Lightroom Mobile, and others since then, though. But now Hipstamatic has returned with a new free app; Hipstamatic X.
Perhaps not surprisingly, given the “X” moniker, the app is currently only available for the iPhone. It’s a “new and improved” version of their old classic.
During the Apple event last September for the new iPhone 11 models, Apple spoke about a new tech they call “Deep Fusion”. It’s a process whereby 9 images are combined using an AI engine in order to create a single image to present the most detail possible. There haven’t really been any good samples of it out there, though, until now.
The feature has appeared in the latest iOS 13 developer beta, and now lots of samples showing off its capabilities have started to pop up on the web – most notably on Twitter.
While he was on an aerial photo tour over Iceland in August last year, photographer Haukur Snorrason was filming the view through an airplane window with his iPhone 6s Plus. He dropped the phone, which was smashed and lost in the Icelandic wilderness forever. Or at least that’s what he thought. The phone was recovered 13 months later, and not only it survived the fall, but it even recorded it.
Apple has announced its latest flagship phone, iPhone 11. It comes in three versions: iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, and all of them are aimed at photographers and videographers. All three models feature 12MP sensors and shoot up to 4K 60fps video. The iPhone 11 is the most affordable and has a dual camera, but the Pro and Max versions come with the triple camera system, with standard, telephoto, and ultra-wide lenses. Let’s check out the specs and see what the latest iPhone models have to offer.
After the introduction of the iPhone in 2007, Apple’s smartphone presence just grew and grew, ultimately becoming the top dog in the market. But last year, Samsung knocked Apple from their throne to become the world’s most popular smartphone brand.
This year, findings published by IHS Markit shows that Apple has now also been overtaken by Huawei and Oppo, dropping Apple down into 4th place.
Time-of-Flight (TOF) has started popping up more and more lately. It feels like a bit of a buzzword, but it’s actually pretty cool tech. Essentially, it sends out some kind of light (typically a laser) into the environment and then times how long it takes for it to bounce off those objects, creating a pretty accurate 3D map of its surroundings.
It can then use this data for various functions. In the case of phones, that means things like the fake bokeh everybody seems to love these days, but also for faster and more accurate autofocus. And according to a report on MacRumors, it’s coming to two 2020 iPhone models.
For the 12th year in a raw, iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS) has selected the best iPhone photographers of the year. We may argue forever (and we probably will) if gear matters or not. But these photos show us a fact that remains true: no matter what gear you use, you still need talent and knowledge to capture a great photo.
You like photography, you’d like to take stunning photos, but you’re bummed because you don’t have a camera? But hey, you’ve got your phone! Photographer Noe Alonzo took a challenge to shoot only with his smartphone for six months. He did it to encourage all of you to just go out and shoot, and in this video, he shares some of the lessons he learned during the process.
Last year, British tech firm, Nanoco announced a partnership with a “large, undisclosed U.S. listed corporation” worth £17.1 million ($21.7 million). The Telegraph now reports that this undisclosed company is none other than Apple. They say that Apple contracted Nanoco to develop quantum dot (QD) technology for the next generation of high tech iPhone camera sensors.
They now also say that Apple has pulled the plug on the project, causing Nanoco to lost almost 80% of its share price. According to BlueFin Research, the decision was made as Apple deems the QD image sensors to be too expensive for mass production.
