Introducing HiLO Lens – Creative Angle for iPhone & iPad Photography

Our friend Mark Hampton brought us a great idea the HiLO Lens. We love it and are supporting the project.

HiLO Lens is a fresh idea for iPhone and iPad photography. The HiLO Lens is a right angle lens that redirects the camera view, in a similar way to the swivel/rotating screen found on modern digital cameras. The project is being funded on Kickstarter now. HiLO Lens has already reached the initial funding goal on Kickstarter so join them now to be one of the first people to try out a new angle on iPhoneography. Check out their Kickstarter video below…

Facebook acquires Lightbox team to solidify ‘mobile’ photo sharing strategy

Continuing their recent photo-sharing binge, Facebook today revealed that they have ‘assimilated’ the management team of Lightbox. The London-based photo-sharing site and camera app Lightbox, targets Android devices and HTML 5, while Facebook’s newest toy, Instagram, is primarily aimed at iOS (iPhones/iPads) and only recently launched an Android version. It is likely that Facebook will ask the Lightbox team to continue along their Android development path.

There’s a storm coming in

Editor’s Note: Have an iPhoto story you want to share? Please send your pics and story to: [email protected] All we ask is that your photo be made/edited using ProCamera. 

Chalk this one up to “lesson learned” and pay attention to your ProCamera iPhotos! They might just be telling you something, yep!

I recently moved to the Tahoe Keys in South Lake Tahoe, CA, and yesterday I happened to look out my window at a particularly colorful late afternoon sky. Having now upgraded to ProCamera 3.3, I thought I’d head out on my decks and capture a few iPhone 3GS shots. With Anti-Shake and Full Res Zoom on, I began to snap away at the cloud-filled horizon. By the time I finished my ProCamera edits (ProLab, ProCut & Pro FX), darkness had set in. There was a chill in the air and a steady breeze was begining to whip across the Lake. But I never bothered to check the weather report … my first mistake. My newly taken iPhotos would have told any amateur meteorologist “there’s a storm comin’ in” ~ last line from Terminator #1.
