You probably don’t need us to tell you that a proper DSLR camera is better than the camera on your smartphone. But if you’re curious about how much better it is, the folks at Bammo have a (slightly NSFW) video that explains everything you need to know.
Android/iOS: Want to take a shot of a group and include yourself in it? If you don’t want to use a timer or ask a stranger to take the snap, Groopic is the easiest way to do it on your Android or iOS device.
Camera sliders make it easy to achieve beautiful, smooth movement in your videos. The problem? Like most camera equipment, you’ll drop quite a bit of cash to pay for them. Here’s one you can make yourself for just $35.
iPhone: Camera+, our favourite camera app for the iPhone, added a handful of new features today. It now includes a new widescreen shooting mode and improved photo editing settings.
Camera sliders help keep the action steady when you move your camera. Commercial sliders can be pricey, but you can build this one with IKEA parts for about $30.
It can be really handy to control and monitor your camera using a remote device such as a phone or tablet. DSLR Film Noob describes one way to do that with a cheap portable router and gear you already own.
Mac: Apple’s Photo Stream service is supposed to be an easy way to share your photos between your Mac and your iOS device, but it doesn’t always work as advertised. It’s also pretty much only accessible with iPhoto (although workarounds exist), which is pretty obnoxious. MyPhotostream is a lightweight app that gives you access to your Photo Stream without the bloat of iPhoto.
