iPhone’s camera is tuned

The camera that comes on most cell phones is either cheap or inefficient. Cheap, meaning they make shoddy pictures. Overly powered meaning they make shoddy pictures while taking up 2 to 4 megapixels, sometimes more. Usually this is also limited by the circuitry and the lens. iPhone’s camera is a perfect match for iPhoto and the screen on the iPhone. In combination with photo processing software available on the App store, I’m able to not only take stunning pictures, but process them on the iPhone before posting them to the web, emailing them, or printing them out -the pictures are perfectly suited for 3×5 or 4×6 prints. Here are some pictures of Wakonda in all her fall glory.

 This was processed on the iApp Camera Bag, using the Cinema filter, designed to make the image look like a shot taken with a 16mm movie camera.

This is another Camera Bag filter called Ansel to give the broad spectrum gray scales typified in Ansel Adam’s work. Very cool.

 This is an unprocessed image from iPhone. No filters, the camera just takes good pictures.

 This is a picture processed with Camera Bag’s “Helga” filter which is meant to recreate the images created by the plastic Holga camera. 

 

I’ve largely stopped carrying my Canon IXUS which is very portable. The primary advantage of the IXUS is the macro lens setting which iPhone doesn’t have. This allows for very close focus which is useful in the operating room.
