It packs a shoe for flash, light, boom, mic receiver, etc., five accessory mounts, including a tripod mount, and a lens mount. And as the name implies, it's a beast.

How we shot 80 interviews in 4 days using an iPad mini, Vizzywig, and iOgrapher as our close-up camera!

Vizzywig was one of the sponsors of our #CESlive programming, but I have nothing to do with the sponsorships around here, and I wasn't aware of them when I walked into the show. After having spent several hours a day on stage, both watching Geek Beat's John P. using it, and using it myself, I was blown away. Here's how we used it to help shoot about 80 interviews in just 4 days!

Make your iPhone better than a DSLR with these six apps!

While the iPhone's built-in Camera app is perfectly serviceable, the technology behind the iSight has the potential to be amazing. Luckily, there are a ton of great photography apps in the App Store that can help you turn every day moments into something truly special. The iPhone may never match the sheer sensor size and lens quality of a DSLR, but it's far more portable, connected, and thanks to these apps, even more powerful in its own way. If you're ready to take your iPhoneography to the next level, here are the apps you need to download now!

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!

It's also time to announce the winner of our last photo contest! And the winner is...

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! Anything is fair game that plugs in to a wall. If you're feeling particularly adventurous, things like circuit boards make great macro shots too! Don't forget, a random photo of your television set won't win the prize. The winner this week will be the person that can show us how technology impacts our every day lives.

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.
