Recommend: YES - A must have for iPhone photo takers everywhere.
I never thought the camera on my iPhone would replace my Sony DSC-W330 camera (which I love), but it has. The reason...my iPhone is always at my side, and I find myself constantly snapping photos of, pets, nature, family and friends. It is so quick and easy.
The original iPhone camera was not that great, but the new iPhone 4 camera is a terrific improvement. With zoom, video, face talk and more, the pictures I take are so much better. I still though, they could be improved, and recently discovered this wonderful reference book, with so much useful information. I learned that there are so very many free apps like Adobe Photo Shop Express, Color Effects, Photobucket and many many more. Each enables you to do something more to or with your iPhone photos and lets you share them without even the need of your computer.
Here is a blurb right from the book:
- Produce stunning panoramas, vintage-style photo booth strips, and super-saturated Polaroid-style photos with a hip, 1970s look
- Unlock the secret power of the iPhone's camera with burst mode, high dynamic range (HDR) effects, exposure and focus controls, and more
- Find and install the best iPhone apps for cropping images, adjusting contrast and exposure, and editing photos to achieve eye-popping results
- Publish and share images right from the iPhone, without the need for memory cards, cables, or complex desktop photo-editing tools
