Photographs can act as retrieval cues for recalling that particular moment of your INTEREST. Why do photographers take photographs? Because a particular subject caught their interest in the first place. When something catches our interest, we pay more attention to it. Information about that object would be rehearsed in our memory more then others, which results in deeper encoding. The photographs would be the best retrieval cues for memories pertaining to that object. This study is flawed because the researchers did not take this into account. The participants being unable to remember details about an object could simply be due to the fact that the object did not interest him/her in the first place. If we were to pay attention to every single detail around us we would be cognitively overloaded.
Alpha Jack: Not sure why all of the hate. Tablets are potential tools for photography and many photographers are very interested if not already invested. Connect or regular site, there is interest on this site.
agreed. tablets make good photographic devices. I own an Asus Transformer prime. With the keyboard dock as a stand, I can easily just leave it out with the Lapse It pro app running and do a decent time lapse video. with the dslr controller app by chainfire, I can connect my 60d to my tablet and do all sorts of stuff such as time lapse, timed shutter, and live view on the 10 inch screen.
Nothing enticing for a Sony Ericsson Xperia user like me, of which the camera provides a plethora of focusing options such as touch focus , multi-point focus (no kidding), face priority focus, one shot focus and infinity mode. Also not to leave out the spot, center and average metering modes, as well as the the sweep panorama function. I do my post processing using Pixlr-o-matic, which never fail to impress. How do you get 4 mp output with Pixlr-O-matic? Even at large settings I only manage a 1.5mp output.
