So in short ... movie pirating will be on the increase ?
Hopefully these glasses will keep people from walking in front of the screen.
Finally... relief for those that don't like to be stuck shooting square frames !
... and don't have an actual camera.

I don't use Presets, but the answer to that is no... filters aren't much different.
What IS different is the amount of detail, color spectrum, DR, control of DOF, Shutter speed, ISO, etc, etc.
The first link, girl on the broom, is a nice shot, and the only one that isn't obviously taken with a phone, aside from the lack of details below her.The water landscape is ok... and the blurry water looks nice (luckily), because you had no choice.But the middle shot of the water/hand is definitely filtered. Or else it's just washed out and has that odd, faded, vertical banding.
Composition is one thing, you can compose using a camera, a phone, canvas or a stone & chisel. People with a good eye can take good pics with anything. Like this woman:http://instagram.com/marielleg/
But if you wanted to control your depth of field, show more detail in things like water or darker areas, or enlarge any of your shots to a 24x36 wall mount.... now what?
@WingnutI don't mean it to come off as "contempt", I just don't see it as a great tool creating great images. I know... so why comment on "Connect" then, right? lol. I see these headlines when I'm in the Camera portion of DPR and I sometimes click on them.
If it's fun, then by all means let's support it. But we see so many stories here of someone "shooting 50 weddings with their phone!"... "photojournalist uses camera phone!"... as if this is some groundbreaking, state of the art technology. I hate using my phone and my camera is excellent (along with my 5" 1080p 441 pixels per inch screen... perfect for those that like phonetography).
@ MattAll those do is reinforce my comments about filters.
So the 5" 1080p 441 PPI screen has caught up with HTC's Droid DNA, from last year.
Better late than never.
No, being able to snap a shot on your phone and then edit it on a 4.5" screen is not a "bad" thing. It just seems that there is an endless number of these apps... and again that's not a bad thing either because choice is very valuable (since this one is getting horrific, bug-filled reviews so far).I just happen to see humor in all the efforts put into these post processing progs, when you're using a tool that has a small, fixed, wide angle lens.... no control over aperture (or most other things)... and moves every time you push the shutter button. ;)
I realize filters are there to cover up for the fact that a shot is blurry, boring, or poorly exposed... and did I say blurry?.... but this is more than just filters. It seems many of these programs are designed solely to help you get past (cover up) the fact that you're using a cameraphone.
(edit: reviews on Google Play, wouldn't know about Apple)
Photo app # 2,874 in the effort to try and make a phone something more than it is.
5 apps.... that's about 1 more app than actual Windows phone users, right ? ;)
delastro: In my country the video can not be seen - message content from umg - is there another possibility to see the video?
Yes! Pull all of your bad images out of your recycle bin, and make a slideshow using really bad music.Voila!
joe6pack: "When thinking about the ordering of images, I think about how they 'talk' to one another, what one has to 'say' to another,"
Can't we just stick to English? I call it "follow the flow".
iPhoto has a nice feature that lets you export your photo album into a video. I think many photo editing program does one way or the other. But I dislike the fact the a video is significantly larger than the photos and at a lower quality. But if I have to share the photos to be played on DVD or youtube. This is the only way to go.
This is that high art form using "camera phones". Images don't just "follow". "Talk" is much more "artsy".
Is coming up with one really nice photo trumped by just slideshow'ing a bunch of bad ones ?
Jahled: Pyongyang is an odd place for any person to go to to. That's it really
They do ?!
Who forgot to look up the word "fascinating" ?
(unknown member): Really? I have to follow this guy's Instagram feed? I have to see what a guy who wears the signature of the highest class of dbag, the aviator glasses, is doing with his girlfriend? I have to find out what this tool's next excuse to take a picture of his girlfriend's butt is? I really need to know that a pretentious, self-involved, Instagram using excuse for a "photographer" is jetsetting around the world with his girlfriend? Why? So I can see what the latest combination of facial hair, sunglasses, and hipster tshirt is the stereotype for an egocentric jerk? That's the only valuable aspect of these photographs I can find.
Stop whining and just enjoy that nice butt and thong in Venice.
Jane79: It would be cool if the pics were real.
Very nice !
That baby seal leather sure has gone up in price.
We get month old news about a phone with a factory run of 5... yet the "latest Products" is dead at Oct. 18, 2012.
liquid stereo: Can someone please point out some of the great features that the non-Apple smart phones possess or have brought to the market/user-space?
For me, the quad-core processing, larger 5" screen with true HD (1080p, only phone with it) of the Droid DNA was more than enough.
If it were actual "photojournalism", it wouldn't matter what he used to take the snaps. The story attached would explain what can't be seen in the distant, poorly exposed shots, with whatever "clever" pre-made filters are applied. From a distance of course, because he will be limited without a zoom lens, especially in the more dangerous situations... that he will be avoiding when he realizes all he has is a phone.
People that don't know better will read the story and look at his photos... they will be different than the norm and some of them will say "wow, that's a cool snapshot".
While others will say: "how many guys are kneeling behind that AK? The poor exposure loses all definition once you get halfway up the row"...... "Stop using those Instagram filters, they're so overdone".
The fact that we even know what he uses, shows that he is going for the "different" aspect.
