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.

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

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.

Are you an iPad photographer and proud of it? [Poll]

Are you an iPad photographer and proud of it?

It's a discussion we've had many, many times before; using your iPad – or any other tablet for that matter – as a camera. Some love it, some hate it, some ridicule it and others just don't care, but it's a subject most of us have an opinion on. We always say that the best camera you have is the one you have with you, and increasingly folks are carrying their iPads with them everywhere they go. So, are you an iPad photographer, and proud of it?

Camera Plus is back, with more features and a brand new design

Camera Plus was quite a popular app a while back but sadly, had an extensive period of time where it went without being updated very often. After the iOS 7 launch, it appears as if the developers have decided to breathe new life into the app, and fortunately for us, they've succeeded.

Weekly Photo Contest: Macro!

This time of year is amazing to me because the weather can be so different all over the world. That means there may be falling leaves or the first sight of snow already, depending where you live. What a better time to run a macro contest? It's the perfect time to get outside and explore things around you before it's too cold for some of us. This is a perfect opportunity for those of you who have an olloclip lens system to take advantage of it. Any attachments and editing apps are fair game!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, November 19th at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

It's also time to announce the two winners of our last photo contest! And the winners are...

Olloclip 4-in-1 lens system for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5s review

Olloclip recently released an update to their current lens system for iPhone which is supposed to bring with it better overall optics and a new macro option. In the past we've been impressed with the results the old Olloclip system produced when it came to taking wide-angle, macro, and fisheye shots on the iPhone 4s and iPhone 5. Now that I've had my hands on the new 4-in-1 system for a while now and had the chance to test it out with my iPhone 5s, here are the results...

iPad Air vs iPhone 5s: iSight and FaceTime camera shootout!

While the iPad Air now has the same, improved front-facing FaceTime HD camera as the iPhone 5s - and every other 2013 iOS device - its rear-facing iSight camera remains very much unchanged from the iPad 4 and original iPad mini. What has changed however is the software and hardware that power it. With iOS 7 and the very same Apple A7 found in the iPhone 5s - and the very same image signal processor (ISP) - the iPad Air could see an overall boost in quality anyway. To measure how it stacks up, we put the 5 megapixel iPad Air camera up against the 8 megapixel camera, not see if it would win - it doesn't have a chance - but to see how close it can come!

Snapseed for iOS updates with new HDR Scape filter, pre-iOS 7 users beware

Part of today's Google+ event announcements centered on Snapseed, and some new features coming to the Google acquired photo editing software. Of all of them, one much touted new feature was the HDR Scape filter, and the iOS application has just been updated with all the newness. But if you're not on iOS 7 you should tread carefully.
