Should you update to iOS 6?

After playing around with iOS 6 for some time i would like to make a post about whether it makes sense to update your iOS from an iphoneographers point of view or not. Now i know that iOS 6 has been out for more than two thousand years and you are probably all thinking: What next? Is he going to tell us that a new iPhone came out?
In fact i always wait some time before updating my iOS because you never know what they screwed up this time. No but seriously, i first wanted to check everything out well before making a post about it.

Camera+ for iPad with new features

Personally, i love editing photos i have taken with my iPhone on my iPad. The bigger screen just makes everything so much easier. Then again, its a shame when app developers don't make HD versions of their iPhone apps. Now, the makers of the famous app Camera+ have finally released a version for the iPad which even includes new features.

iPro lens mount for iPhone 5

If you happen to own the Schneider Optics iPro Lens System and the new iPhone 5, you probably already know that these two dont work together pretty well. The guys from BoPhoto have taken up on  this problem and got a solution for you. In fact i would even dare to say that this solution is even better than what the original iPro Lens System has to offer.

How to create this rainbow effect

In this short tutorial i would like to show you how to create such a photo using only your iPhone or iPad, a few apps and the Olloclip with its Macro lens. It is actually pretty simple and can be done within 5 minutes. But as always, the more time you invest, the better it gets. I will also cover a part of how to enhance pictures of an eye, so if you want to go for that, this tutorial could also be a help for you.

SloPro - Slowmotion videos with your iPhone

I am constantly looking for gem's on the App Store that really stand out from the crowd. In this case i found a cool app called "SloPro", and it does what no other app i know can: With this free app (more functions come with IAP: 2,99€) you can finally take slowmotion videos with your iPhone.
Don't ask me how the developers did this, but it works. And boy does it look good for a simple app.

iPhone Camera Zoom tips

Instead of "dragging" your desired object closer to you, the camera fakes a zoom effect by digitally cropping and resizing what you see on your display. This means that everytime you increase the zoom, the quality of your final picture will get worse and worse. So instead of getting frustrated with some blurry pictures because of your zoom, we got you some important tips on getting the best out of your camera:

Correct your Olloclip lens distortion with Ollocorrect

If you own the Olloclip 3-in-1 lens for the iPhone 4 or 4S, then you probably already know about the problem of the so called "barrel distortion". This is especially obvious when using the wide-angle lens, which is why i haven't been using that lens very often. Now the creators of Olloclip have released a brand-new app called "Ollocorrect" which is supposed to fix this issue.
