Now you can buy tripods, specialty cases, lenses and countless apps that promise to customize and improve anyone’s smart phone snaps. Up until now, I had never used additional hardware for iPhone photos. I just stuck [...]

If you've ever seen those big, gooseneck inspection cameras that plumbers use to inspect pipes, you may have wished you had access to one when you drop a ring up under the bed or the cat has dragged off your socks behind the fridge.  DinosaurLifeStyle (alas, Andrew Baker, it still suffers from a dearth of dinosaurs...)

Tablets and smart phones are a great way to carry and share photos; they have replaced those little photo albums called "brag books" that people used to carry in their purses or gear bags.  Many of these mobile devices have cameras to take photos with, but let's face it, the quality of those photos aren't [...]

triggertrap-for-smartphones

I've purchased remote shutter releases for all of the Nikon DSLRs that I own.  Some are wireless, some are wired, but they all require me to push a button to get a photo - and that's all it can do.  With the Triggertrap cable and an app for your smart phone (most versions of iPhone [...]

onslot-1

When I first saw the OnSlot On-Hot Shoe Cleaner I was confused because I didn't know there was such a huge problem with dirty hot shoes on our cameras. But then I read the product description and learned that the hot shoe is just a place to store the OnSlot when you're not using it. [...]
