rfsIII: Lauren--this seems like the eye light that videographers and cinematographers put on top of their cameras to give sparkle to the eyes of people when they're in closeup. Is it bright enough to do that?

I'm not sure because I haven't had a chance to play with it. We'll hopefully get to review it sometime soon. In the meantime, I've forwarded your question to the folks at Photojojo.

Photo-Wiz: Is that picture for Fast Camera taken in front of Sunnyside Resort in Lake Tahoe?

Wow! Nailed it! I took that at the public beach for the William Kent campground. My favorite camping spot in Tahoe. :)

Dazed and Confused: "With an image open, Ubuntu seems to host additional apps [....] You can see the icon for the popular Gimp software as well as two other icons that I did not recognize."

The orange fin is the Grooveshark logo - a music app. So I'm not so sure it's the picture editing app that you think it could be.

Interesting! Looks like you are right about Grooveshark. The video demo had me hopeful for something new. The way they edit with sidebar navigation while viewing the image in preview is normal mobile app stuff, but I wondered what the purpose is of having the extra app icons visible. Maybe those are currently open applications?

Either way, the search navigation for editing tools is helpful for a large editing app like Gimp.

vv50: what's the difference between instagram's policies on your images and those of facebook's?

Facebook says that "you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook (IP License)." Basically the same as Instagram.

Illumina: My onyx 9780 can produce beautiful image and it is 5mpx..
Sorry Lauren, but you are wrong, maybe you should edit ur article..

Admittedly, I based that statement off of my experience seeing only lazily-shot Blackberry photos. As we all know, a good photographer can capture a great image from any camera.
