This week on The Digital Story photography podcast: Camera battle: iPad Air vs. iPhone 5S; On the Nimbleosity Report - New Goodies to delight you; From the Photo Help Desk - Taking control of exposure. All of this and more on today's show with Derrick Story.
Story #1 - Camera Battle: The iPad Air vs iPhone 5S - Apple's latest full sized tablet is a technological marvel. Among its many features, it includes a built-in iSight camera. How does it compare to the iPhone 5S? Before answering that, let's take a look at its feature highlights:
- Weighs in at just one pound (28 percent lighter)
- Super thin - Can apparently hide behind a pencil
- 9.7 inch display with 2048-by-1536 resolution and over 3.1 million pixels
- A7 chip featuring 64-bit architecture with an M7 coprocessor (M standing for motion)
- 10-hour battery life
- Improved WiFi with two antennas and MIMO (multiple-input multiple-output) technology
- Dual microphones
- 5-megapixel iSight camera
So, now, what about that 5 MP camera? How does it compare to the 8 MP version in the iPhone 5S. I cover that in the first story. (Thanks to Allyson Kazmucha at iMore for publishing the article, iPad Air vs iPhone 5s: iSight and FaceTime camera shootout!. It helped me with my research for this post.)
Story #2 - The Nimbleosity Report: Have you been enjoying the daily Journal entries?
Plus, I've added a new hat to the store featuring beautiful Port and Beigh colors. But the real gems are the new Gift Sets: The Gift Set in Port features the new cap, Walking Man Shoulder Bag, two fine art Holiday greeting cards, and gift bag. All you have to do is sign one of the holiday cards, and you have an excellent gift for the Nimble Photographer or traveler in your life. And the best part is... the price is only $49.95. (We also have a Navy Gift Set with the original Walking Man cap.)
Story #3 - From the Photo Help Desk: what tips to you have to help me take more control over exposure?
- Exposure lock
- Exposure compensation
- Manual exposure
I cover all three in today's third story.
