The iPhone Camera Thread
The built-in camera in the iPhone offers some interesting possibilities, especially when paired with some of the apps out there. I thought we could all explore those possibilities.

There's only one rule: the image you post has to be uploaded directly from the iPhone, with no processing done outside of the phone. You can do all you want in the phone, but when it leaves your phone, that's it.

Also, let's share our thoughts on iPhone software, too. What do you have, what do you like?

So, I'll start out with this shot. I was just playing with QuadCamera and CameraKit.

Very cool!!!

My favorite camera app so far is ShakeItPhoto. Not as cool processing as above, but you get to shake the camera around as soon as the "polaroid" comes out, so that it "develops."

Here's a straight shot that I really like (no extra iphone apps used). It's been said many times, the best camera is the one you have you. In this case I stopped to catch the sunset from the car with my youngest daughter and let her climb into the front passenger seat. The only camera I had was my iPhone camera.



A couple of iPhone apps I like: CameraBag and 101 PhotoEffects

So true. This is the last photo of my father smiling. Taken with the iPhone, and framed for my mom.

On the Twitter, greenpea linked to thebestcamera.com, which has the best (go figure) camera app I've seen. I shot a stupid test pic of my dirty dishes with it, applied some filters, and uploaded it to their site, and my facebook all in one go.

Apparently, it's the #1 camera of photos uploaded to Flickr, and if you can get an AT&T signal, they say it sometimes makes phone calls too!

I have to add that the best camera app is also the biggest productivity killer. I spent much of my day taking iPhone pics, applying filters and uploading the pics. Good thing my boss is on vacation!

Nice. I wish I had an iPhone...but the best I can do is the free Blackberry work provides to me. It's an 8830 so there's no camera but we're switching providers soon and at that point I think I'll end up with an 8820 which does have a camera. I don't know what the image quality is like on the 8820 but we shall see :)

I went to the local Arts Festival this past weekend, and bought my daughter a bracelet. She has been known to dress up as a spoon, a fork and a spork for halloween in her, uh, youth, so when I saw these bracelets made of antique forks and spoons, I knew I had to get her one for xmas.



Then we watched these kids rocking out. I was pretty impressed.
