The iSight camera in the Retina mini remains unchanged from last year's original. It's still the same 5 megapixel, backside illuminated (BSI), five-element, hybrid IR file red, and f/2.4 aperture. What has changed is the Apple A7 processor inside, and the image signal processor (ISP) inside it....

Lensbaby takes to Kickstarter with new iPhone 'sweet spot' lens

Lensbaby has some new iPhoneography gear up on KickStarter and it's called the Sweet Spot or the Creative Focus lens... or the LM-10. Or something. But naming consistency aside what Lensbaby is offering is a single, tight area of focus surrounded by MASSIVE blur. Whether you find that directs the eye to exactly where you want it to be, or just annoys you no end will likely depend on whether you view the Sweet Spot as art or novelty. Either way, if it appeals to you and your photographic sensibilities, you can back it now!

Design photobooks from your iPad with ease using Kodak Moments HD

iOS offers a variety of photo printing apps like Free Prints and PostalPix. But until now, none of them bore the illustrious Kodak name. That changes today with the release of Kodak Moments HD for iPad. With Kodak Moments HD, users can easily create high quality photo books and prints using photographs from their iPad or social media sharing sites. And unlike competing apps, Kodak allows users to choose from both ship-to-home and same-day in-store pickup options.

Weekly photo contest: Animals!

Animals are a great subject for photography. We aren't talking house pets here though, we're talking animals that you found outside. Whether it be birds, squirrels, a fox, or something else that's native to your area. Your task this week is to capture a great shot of an animal outdoors. Keep in mind a few things though — composition matters, and a photo of the family dog in the back yard won't take the prize. So get out there and find some interesting animal shots!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, April 1st at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

The video up top shows us just exactly how. Hit play. Enjoy. And then tell me — If the iPhone can be the best camera because it's the one you have with you, why not the computer?

Weekly Photo Contest: Bokeh!

This week's photo contest is bokeh, which is just the common term for shallow depth of field. Everyone's seen it whether they know it or not. Popular examples are blurred lights in the background while the subject is in the foreground. It's typically a desired affect in portrait photography but has its place in other areas as well. Your challenge is to create bokeh in your photography in a tasteful and appropriate manner. And remember, post editing apps are okay as long as they are for iOS.

Weekly Photo Contest: Weather!

No matter what part of the world you're in, the weather changes all around us. For some of us that means massive amounts of rain or snow right now while for others it means awesome fall colors. Your goal for this week is to get out there and capture striking images of the weather around you. Just taking a photo out your window won't do. The prize will go to the person that combines all they've learned in our iPhoneography series in order to blow us away.

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, January 21st at 10 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

Weekly Photo Contest: Technology and electronics!

The Mobile Nations crew is out covering CES 2014 in Las Vegas this week so we thought there's no better time to run a photo contest focusing on the topic of the week, technology and electronics!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, January 14th at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

Weekly Photo Contest: Food!

I couldn't think of a better time of year to do a contest about food than the week of Thanksgiving, if you celebrate it that is. If you don't, well you have to eat anyways! If there are two things that flood photo sharing services more than anything, it's selfies and food. This week, we're going to focus on the latter. It couldn't get any easier than this, show us what you're eating for Thanksgiving, or for any other special occasion this week. Whoever makes us hungry the fastest, wins!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, December 3rd at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

For iPhone photographers, how will the new Google+ stack up against the rest?

A few weeks ago, Google held a press event focused around the Google+ social platform, unveiling a ton of new features and improvements. One of the big focuses was photos, backup, sharing and editing in particular, along with background sync and full-resolution uploads for the iOS application. So, potentially some big tools for iPhone photographers, but its a crowded space. Some folks might be happy enough with Photo Stream, but we're looking outside the Apple ecosystem here and considering more cross-platform solutions.

So, how well will the new Google+ stack up with your photos against three of the biggest competitors? Lets find out.
