Having access to your iPhone camera all the time revolutionizes the kinds of pictures you end up taking. The simple point and click process means that you need never miss a shot. You can instantly share your photographs using one of the many different services or platforms available, such as Facebook. The quality of the images the iPhone produces is amazing, and even a novice photographer can take excellent pictures.
The iPhone really is perfect for any budding amateur photographer. It’s easy to store and sort your photographs, and the memory of an iPhone offers plenty of storage space. As well as being able to show off your results instantly, you can join your Apple iPhone to your computer which makes it much easier to send your photos out, print them or upload them to social networks. The iPhone camera compares very well with most modern digital cameras, and the results are great even when the lighting is poor. The camera automatically adjusts to difficult lighting conditions, and there’s a built-in flash for those really dark shots.
Always to hand and easy to operate, the iPhone camera is perfect for party shots and snaps of friends and family. However, it shouldn’t just be regarded as a snapshot camera, and the camera on your iPhone is capable of producing results to rival more expensive dedicated cameras. Many serious photographers are now recognizing the power of iPhoneography, and the results they are producing are amazing. There is a gritty sense of realism associated with the work of many iPhoneography enthusiasts. Their photographs cover a range of subjects and genres, but documentary pictures are a particular favourite.
The true creative power of the iPhone camera is unleashed when you start to experiment with the many apps available. Most of these apps are free, and they revolutionize the capabilities of the iPhone camera. Apps allow you to produce panoramic pictures at the press of a button, and open up the worlds of black and white and other creative styles of photography. Photo-editing apps allow you to add frames and borders to pictures, and to adjust exposure, tone and contrast. Once you download some apps, your iPhone becomes a hand-held digital editing device as well as a superb camera.
Although it’s easy to operate straight from the box, it’s worth reading the instructions for an iPhone camera. Various settings can be adjusted, and you can set the camera up to work to your own preferences. Taking a few minutes to learn the more advanced features means you really get the best from the camera.
Sam Jones, the author, has the best iPhone deal available and loves being able to take amazing photos everywhere and anywhere.

Cameras have changed since the turn of the century. Today, cameras are used to create art as well as to take pictures of major life events. Currently, some camera manufacturers are placing GPS chips in their cameras. This is helpful in one way: you can tell exactly where you were when you took a certain photo. While some people think that this is the best thing since sliced bread, other people are horrified. In some circles, this neat new technology twist could be construed as a privacy breach. The truth is that most people fall somewhere in between the two extreme viewpoints.
For the average person, retagging is a great concept. This is especially true if you tend to take a lot of photos. The reality is that you may not remember why you took a certain photo or where you were when you took that photo when you finally get a chance to look through the images on your phone.
Most people today have face book accounts. The majority of the people with such accounts post photos of themselves and their loved ones on the website. Don’t be fooled into thinking that your information is safe if you have set your privacy settings to the highest settings available. The fact is that anything on a public website is potentially public knowledge. Facebook also codes images with metadata tags which in essence are geotags. Other sites like Flickr and even Picassa do not do this. This is due mainly to copyright issues, not to protect privacy.
To be truthful, I don’t see any great value added to cameras that have these GPS chips installed. In fact, adding another electronic component to a camera may actually decrease the life of the camera’s battery. Since the battery life of electronic cameras is already low, this is a bit of a concern.
In addition, to use the retagging option, you will need to actually get the retagging option to work. This process involves getting your camera to communicate correctly with the GPS satellite in order to properly tag the photos. If this doesn’t happen, you will get an error message. In my experience, this can happen quite regularly. The reality is that this is so very frustrating that it makes me think twice about using my camera, let alone the tagging option.
There is another option that many do not think about when purchasing a camera with the GPS chip. If you are taking photos indoors, in a tunnel, or in a dense forest, you will probably not be able to get a signal from the satellite. This means that you won’t be able to tag your photos using the GPS chip anyway.
The bottom line is: is it worth the extra cost to purchase a camera that has the GPS chip? In my humble opinion, the answer is no. If you are one of “those people” that need the latest gadget in order to make you feel important, you may feel differently.
For the rest of us, the reality is that there is some work still needed to perfect this technology. Right now, it is more likely that you’ll be paying extra to get an option that will work correctly only for a small percentage of the time that you will be using your camera.

Sony introduced the Betacam system in 1982. It consisted of a single camera unit that did not require anything to attach the recorder to it. The Betacam system had an integrated recorder with the camera. Although it contained the Betamax cassette tape, it was comparatively faster in running. This enhanced the performance and quality of the recorded videos. This creation earned its name in the broadcasting and editing world very quickly.
Relying on the response that Betacam received, Sony came up with another product. This time, the target audience was the general public. The design of the new Betamovie BMC-100P also incorporated the same Betamax cassette. This camera had to be positioned on the shoulder of the operator as it could not be managed with one-handed grasp. Later JVC also launched its version of camcorder which was created on the VHS-C format. The VHS-C was a compact version of the VHS.
Advancing in the field of video recording, Sony brought in its personal compact video cassette design as Video8. The designs by both Sony and JVC were supposed as both advantageous and difficult because of their particular features. Panasonic, Hitachi and RCA initiated manufacturing camcorders that used full size VHS cassette for recording which had the capability of saving up to 3 hours of recording. These designs were made public which crafted a place for commercial videographers and college TV studios. The super VHS camcorder’s, released in 1987 increased the broadcasting quality. The S-VHS granted an economical mean to gather news fragments. Improving the Video8, Sony commenced the launch of Hi8 in competition to the S-VHS.
Today in the 21st century, technology has evolved much further. Now the world relies on digital camcorders which record videos using compact disks and memory cards rather than those analog tapes. This digital method has enabled a much better quality in film-making. Also the introduction of HD and 3D technology has benefited us in providing the ultimate experience of video recording.

Olympus has today officially launched their new Four Thirds portrait lens, which has been under development and was announced some time ago. The new M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm f/1.8 Micro Four Thirds portrait lens, as the name suggests has been created for portrait photography and high speed in-door sports in mind, say Olympus.

According to Samsung there are 2.5 billion owners of digital cameras around the globe and these cameras, whether they are standalone models or part of mobile phones, have accounted for some of the biggest changes in photography and the way that people take photographs.
The Camera Phone
Originally derided by some who failed to see why a camera attached to a phone would ever have any use, the camera phone is now one of the most valuable sources of the “I was there” remembrance. From the capture of Colonel Gaddafi to the summer riots of 2011, some of the biggest news stories and events of recent times have been captured on mobile phone cameras and with the largest news corporations relying on footage captured in this way for their broadcasting, it’s hard to deny the power of the mobile phone camera.
Once upon a time, professional photographers charged clients on a “number of shots” basis and would be unlikely to take a shot unless they were certain of the result. Thanks to digital technology though there is no longer any need for this wait or to try the hands of fate. Anyone and everyone now knows that the shot they take is of a high quality mere seconds after taking it and there is no more threat of a wasted shot.
The amount of photographs
Whether you’re an enthusiast or simply someone who likes to have the memories of their summer holiday as a permanent reminder, digital photography has changed the frequency with which we take pictures. Look back a few decades and you’d have been lucky to take and have 24 photographs to a film. Taking three films on holiday was considered a luxury and we were a lot sparser with the photographs we took. Consider the difference now when a typical memory card can hold up to 50 shots and these can be uploaded and the memory card wiped to allow for more photographs within seconds and it is little wonder that digital photography has meant that we are taking more photos than ever.
The Devaluing of Photographs
There are those experts who claim that the availability and ease with which photographs can now be taken has devalued them and whilst we might have once expected to see ten perfect shots, we can now see 50 mediocre pieces.
