Fotobug - Episode 155 - Beyond the Selfie!

May 1st, 2016

Podcast 155 features a special treat, the Fotobug guys discuss ways to improve image capture using your mobile phone!

Jim and Fred also discuss recent photography news.  Pelican cases have introduced a new Air series of cases that offer protection with less weight.  Did a consumer drone really crash into a jet landing at Heathrow airport?  A new Kickstarter campaign is designing a DSLR style grip to work with iPhonesLytro has debuted it Cinema Prototype at NAB 2016 in Las Vegas.  The Sony plant that makes sensors in Japan has been temporarily shut down due to the recent earthquake.  Another former Kickstarter project has created a pocket sized slider for DSLR cameras and will be sold at a reduced price until July.


The Fotobug guys present a how-to on optimizing captures with your mobile phone or tablet.  Due to the small sensors, fixed lenses, and fixed apertures on mobile phone cameras, there are special techniques that will permit the photographer to capture the best images possible.  Chances are a photographer won't always have a DSLR or mirrorless camera but will likely be carrying a mobile phone with a built-in camera. Jim recommends using the mobile camera as a "photographer's sketchpad" but images captured with these cameras with a little care can be quite good!
