    Old Black Walnut

    This one was planted by a squirrel in the chicken yard from nuts from the original trees planted by my great grandpa. It was supposed to be too far north here but on a southern exposure, they did well.

    Resolution reduction - iPhone 13 mini to iCloud

    I wonder if anyone can help me with this one. I've just started using the camera on my iPhone 13 mini and noticed that the files arriving on the iCloud are about half their resolution on the phone itself. The native resolution of the iPhone is 4032 x 3024 which equates to a jpg file size of...

    Apps Kultcamera on Pixel 3A XL

    I took a stroll around the village to stretch my legs, in a gap between the showers (first rain for 17 days!) this evening, and revisited the Kultcamera app on my phone. I had a blast! I can't remember which combination of camera, film and lens each photo used, though.

    Help with Instagram please

    Hey Cool Kids, how do I respond/clear the Instagram icon that has the little bubble with the '2' in it? I gather that means I have 2 "somethings" to respond to, but I don't see what they are or how to respond. Or are they just meant to be annoying and frustrating?

    Smartphone FIMO PAN-X/Tri-X 400 Images From My Walk Today - Pano

    A new film simulation dropped a little bit ago for the FIMO camera app in the App Store. It pay homage to a PAN-X camera loaded with Tri-X 400 film. I kinda like it, and played with it a bit today during my 3.5 mile walk through the woods at lunch today. Thought I would share: 1 2 3 4 5

    Smartphone Showcase iPhone App - Darkr

    There is a lot of debate about the viability of a cell phone camera as a “main driver”. Everyone has their opinions and I’ll share mine. Just know that this more applies to me and what I do, more so than me trying to tell someone how and what they should do. In this series, we are going to look...

    Apple iPhone SE 2020

    Ohhh but it doesn't have Night Mode, they cried. And my question, therefore, is this... Does it matter? Of course its not an excellent photo, but it was taken in the early hours, and the only available light was from one bar of the radiator and a bit of light from 29% of a LIFX in the...

    Samsung S20 Ultra 10X Zoom Samples

    Here are some sample images from my S20 Ultra. In each pair of images, I took a photo using the wide angle camera on my Samsung S20 Ultra and then repeated the same photo at 10X zoom (combination of 4X optical zoom and additional binning and cropping). These are straight out of the camera with...

    Carry everywhere camera with automatic image transfer to smartphone?

    Hi all, For a long time now, I’ve been doing virtually all my photography on an iPhone. I’d like to try carrying around a dedicated camera around again, but it’s important to me that it be very easy to share JPEGs via my phone. Are there any cameras which automatically send all pics to a...

    I'm on the fence. I've been a long time Android user, but with Google showing their true face here recently(I'll not get into the politics of it, just suffice it to say that it is enough to get me to seriously think of divesting of all the Google products I have) and the early reviews of the...

    As I couldn't find a dedicated thread for this subject, I created this one. Since getting a Huawei P9 phone, which has a separate monochrome sensor, I've really enjoyed using it for spur of the moment shots, like this: Please share your shots.

    Google Pixel 3 Motion Photos Saved My Carpal and Rotator

    All I can say is that it's ridiculously easy to sort through Holiday photos taken with Pixel 3 and Motion Photos. It's almost scary how the AI was able to show me the recommended photos in a 10 to 20 photo burst, and one of those was indeed the one I would have picked. It took me about 30...

    Smartphone Aim the lens, not the screen (on your phone)

    For a long time I was not comfortable composing on my phone in landscape mode. When I moved the phone, the scene on the screen changed in a way that was not used to seeing or dealing with. Here’s how I solved the problem. Place my thumb and index finger on the phone at points directly under and...

    This will take some getting to grips with. You can have the AI feature on or off (I think I will favour off but we'll give it a chance!). 40mp or 10mp resolution. JPEG or DNG. Colour or mono (which is 20mp). Anyway, here are a couple of early shots. Standard 10mp mode, AI on Weobley wall by...

    Smartphone Phone cam bokeh

    I've been too lazy to carry a separate camera, using my iPhone 7 plus cam most of the time. The simulated bokeh still kind of blows me away. A few family snaps from today and yesterday, the first two in relatively low light. Happy 4th to friends in US!

    I think I'm at the precipice of giving up "real" cameras for my cel phone camera (for most uses), but the one big thing holding me back is transfer of photos. Maybe I'm just not thinking of something very simple. If I take a simple photo of the dogs and want to share it with my wife, I...

    I was reading a review of the new Sony cell phone. The review site had a very camera oriented comparison section for the camera on the phone. Looking at the picture of the ISO chart for it, I was impressed. The picture is sharper than many cameras I've seen. It's better than my XZ-1. Photo...
