I have been using the FUJIFILM Camera Remote app since I got my Fuji X-T1 right after launch. And the app is a great thing to use e.g. if you like to trigger your cam remotely. But most of all I needed this Apple iOS app for backup storage of my SD card. You could just beam your pics to the iPhone via Wi-Fi® not needing any other internet connection whatsoever. A common thing with most cameras these days and a good thing at that. Especially important for those of us with high storage iPhones that do not work with any adapter that might transfer the content of SD cards to the phone. It does work with iPads but not with iPhones curously enough. If you […]

First smartphone with Firefox OS launched commercially

Other manufacturers like LG Electronics, Sony and Huawei are said to follow this example and probably will be introducing their own Firefox OS mobiles very soon. This is good news […]

This new marketing approach looks like a big step forward but it may come a little early in the game for many long time users of stand-alone software versions. Watch the Adobe YouTube video for a basic overview on Adobe`s Creative […]

Lightroom 5 Beta - Advanced Healing Brush

When it comes to photo editing I tend to do most of my adjustments in Lightroom nowadays (about 80%). Photoshop comes in when I need to get into some more heavy dodging and burning or I need to work with layers. For black and white conversions I like to use Silver Efex Pro. The new version of Lightroom is just around the corner and Lightroom 5 Beta is already being tested and previewed. I am not doing any Beta-testing myself but there are a couple of experts who have really gotten the hang of it already. I highly recommend that you take a look at the videos from Julianne Kost. I am a great fan of hers – she really is the “Principal Digital Imaging […]
