an #android v #ios camera gotcha #andvios

on an iphone when you go into privacy location disable your location is no longer saved with your photos

on an android when you disable GPS your location is still saved with your photos unless you go into camera settings save location off

the power of opensource (eg android opencamera app)

maybe you have been enjoying using the opensource android opencamera app

maybe you love the fixed infinite focus feature and maybe youre thinking i would like another new feature like “auto untilt” !

well thats the power of opensource you can ADD any feature you want yourself just get the free libre open source code, learn java and android mobdev and away you go

PS BUT google first as you may find its already been written and it turns out that “auto untilt” already exists -albeit with the wrong name

Three features to look out for on your next camcorder

Three features to look out for on your next camcorder

  • GPS – so you never need to manually geotag your photos again
  • Projector – so you never need a TV again
  • Wi-Fi upload – so you never need a USB again

And you can already buy a camcorder with a built-in project just take a look at the Sony HDR-PJ200

How to use flickr to help you decide what camera to buy !

I've just noticed that Argos have some interesting deals on digital cameras:

  • 7M Canon A470 3.4x for £50
  • 10M Nikon S560 5x for £150
  • 6M Nikon D40 DSLR (inc 18-55 lens) for £250

but how can i decide which one to buy ?

So I thought lets use flickr to help me decide

Only 200 A470 owners uploaded photos YESTERDAY but 3000 D40 owners did !

31/75 flickr members own a A470 ! and its well down the popularity list ! whats wrong with it ?

6000/13000 flickr members own the d40 and its the 4th most popular Nikon ! impressive figures !

Or maybe I should save up for a D60 instead !

OpenRAW and RAW digital camera image formats

OpenRAW want "camera manufacturers to publicly document their RAW image formats — past, present, and future. The goal of OpenRAW is to encourage image preservation and give creative choice of how images are processed to the creators of the images. To this end, we advocate open documentation of information about the how the raw data is stored and the camera settings selected by the photographer."


There IS an ANSI C program that attempts to decode any raw image from any digital camera on any computer running any operating system.That program is called dcraw (pronounced "dee-see-raw"), and it's become a standard tool within and without the Open Source world. It's small (about 8000 lines), portable (standard C libraries only), free (both "gratis" and "libre"), and when used skillfully, produces better quality output than the tools provided by the camera vendor.

Photojojo is a newsletter about "a whole world of things you can do with your photos and with your camera that nobody ever told you about. Turn a photo into a mural at home in 5 minutes, print your friends' faces onto cupcakes, or get a bottlecap that turns any soda bottle into a tripod …"

Here a few "things" I found in their archives
