KodaChrome25: BlueVisor - how about a discount for DPR readers?
Definitely! Actually that's exactly what we did couple of days ago, the price was dropped to $1.99.
jcmarfilph: Of course another iPad article. So you can't use other tablet as light source? This should have been titled "Using your iPad as a photographic light source."
@Charles That's a very interesting video, thanks for sharing!

Kriekira: It's a great little app -- I'm happy I bought it.
I'd like to post a picture here, but it looks I can't. Maybe this link will work:https://dl.dropbox.com/u/713178/2012-06-26_NightHydrangeas_901_13%20of%2017_DSC02926.jpg
That's a beautiful shot! Please keep them coming~
I'm the author of SoftBox Pro for iPad.
First of all, I feel honoured that my app is featured on dpreview.com, which I have been a proud member since 2003.
This app was simply made to give creative photographers more ideas. Whether using iPad, android tablet, or your TV even, doesn't really matter. The reason this app was made for iPad and iPhone only, is these are the only devices I have. I don't want this thread turns into a brand bashing war, the writer of this article was merely using my app as an example, by no means other tablet users can't use their devices as light sources.
Please, can't we all just get along?
p.s. if you have taken any photos using SoftBox Pro, please post them on Flickrland: http://www.flickr.com/groups/softboxpro/
