GESTURES Camera, the next generation camera App?

GESTURES Camera, the next generation camera App?

GESTURES Camera, the next generation camera App? . Have you heard of the GESTURES CAMERA App?   A few weeks ago it was released in the Apple Store and today it is available for free.  Their mission is simple, to revolutionize the world of camera Apps because: ”camera interfaces really haven’t changed much in over 10 years… we still depend heavily on interacting with tiny buttons to do some of the most basic things, instead of using simple gestures”.   The idea behind this App is to take advantage of today’s touchscreen capabilities to make picture taking a better experience. . It takes a little getting used to but once you learn the basic features of this app, the movement make total sense.   Once you start using it you will find yourself doing swipe gestures with your other camera Apps! . . Think about all features we use on a daily basis on a traditional camera App: capturing, viewing, sharing, deleting, Gestures gives you access to all that on the same screen, no need to interrupt your creative process. . . To capture, you tap…anywhere on the screen. To add a filters you scroll up or down. To see more or less thumbnails in the gallery, pinch in our out. . . To skip strait to the timeline, pinch quickly. To share, swipe up with 3 fingers. . . Because you can tap directly on the screen to focus and capture at the same time, it encourages us to take pictures with natural depth and focus rather than applying fake blur filters. . . And lastly but not least important, speed!  We...
The Picture Project – London By Night

The Picture Project – London By Night

The Picture Project – London By Night . Have you ever wondered what would happen if a big camera photographer and a smartphone photographer where to go out and spend a day and a night shooting? . . Have you ever wondered what would happen if a big camera photographer and a smartphone photographer where to go out and spend a day and a night shooting? . How many a time have you thought I would like to catch that light trail, or I’d love to do a long exposure but I don’t have the right gear!  Well, an idea that sparked from a hastily taken photograph and a conversation on Facebook that spiralled into something surreal, which lead to the birth of The Picture Project and a video documenting the antics of two crazy guys shooting London By Night. . Matt Davey and I created a small project to get creative people alike to work together, promoting the arts and encouraging those to do what they love. . After thorough planning, we decided to get the ball rolling and we took our gear for a ride. We ended up spending seventeen hours out in the cold on a tour-de-force shooting the same subjects, this comparative study on how an iPhone and a Cannon Mark II related has been fully caught on camera, so worry no more for all your questions shall be answered here, the only thing you have to do is to get the popcorns out, sit and enjoy the journey. This is going to be a fun and exciting ride! . @italianbrother – Dilshad Corleone . ....

Instagramers Carl Zeiss Trip – Wrap Up

Instagramers Carl Zeiss Trip – Wrap Up

Instagramers Carl Zeiss Trip – Wrap Up . As we mentioned in our previous post – @Nokia_Connects have teamed up with the Instagramers community and sent a bunch of the best five over to Germany this weekend!  . What we did was assemble a group of unstoppable Instagramers, armed them with a Lumia 1020 each and sent them to the beautiful Oberkochen in Germany to visit the Carl Zeiss factory where the Lumia 1020 lenses are made. They had a fantastic time and the pictures they took were just incredible. They learnt all about the magnificence of the camera and even had a trip round the beautiful Munich for them so they could show off their skills. To see all the action, go check out the #LumiaInFocus hashtag on Instagram now. Sometimes however, a picture speaks a thousand words; here are some of the best pictures from the trip. We’re sure you’re going to enjoy them as much as we did! @bobbyanwar begins the story with this great shot of the start of his journey: . . “I walked out the door at 05:45 this morning in Copenhagen. I headed out for the airport to travel to Aalen in Germany… Invited by @Nokia. I’ve been testing the Lumia 1020 and the camera has blown me away…”  . Needless to say – when everyone arrived, they were pretty hungry….  . . So off they went into Aalen for a bite to eat with friends. Our instagramer @Crisss took this shot. . . The next day, the guys visited the Carl Zeiss factory and took (unsurprisingly) some amazing pictures. We owe...
