Smartcameras, Apple, and the future of photography
I’ve got an article at the website Connect (part of Digital Photography Review) about what I see as a dilemma for fans of Apple’s iOS and iPhone photography apps. Smartcameras are starting to appear — that is, point-and-shoot cameras with the Android operating system and photo apps — and I fear that Android, and not iOS, will dominate this smartcamera trend. I’d love to buy a smartcamera at some point, but I would want it to be a camera with iOS apps — that is, all of the photography apps I’ve got on my iPhone. Will that happen? I’m not quite sure, and in my Connect article I come up with a bunch of scenarios (Apple buys Nikon, Apple introduces its own digital SLR, etc.) for how things will shake out. Realistic ideas? Not always, but it’s fun to speculate.
If you’re wondering about the smartcamera trend, check out my posts about smartcameras and Android cameras at What I See Now.
iPhone photography show at Soho gallery
Save the date: There’s an iPhoneography show in New York City, and I’ll be there for the opening on December 16. The exhibition will feature 200 photos, with more than 8,000 photos having been submitted. Interested in seeing your photo on the walls of the Soho Gallery for Digital Art? You can submit until December 10. Learn more.
100 camera and photo apps in 100 days
Over at my What I See Now blog, which is all about iPhone photography, I’ve got a new project: 100 Photo Apps. The idea is pretty simple: Over 100 days, I’ll post 100 images from 100 different iPhone camera and photography apps. I’m thinking of the project as a way to showcase the best photo apps and also highlight what’s possible with iPhone photography and the iPhone camera.
Which is quite a lot. There are Photoshop-like image editors for the iPhone, photobooth apps, and lots of tools for recreating the photographic techniques and tools of yesteryear. If you want to get a sense of the possibilities, check out my 100 Photo Apps posts at What I See Now, and also think about viewing this video I put together for my book, Create Great iPhone Photos.
