Canon shooters have had the ability for a while now to enjoy OnOne’s Camera Remote app for the iPhone, while us Nikon shooters have just had to wait. Now, the wait is over and the application works with Nikon cameras as well!
The update is available for free in the App Store for owers who had the 1.0 version. Apart from adding support for Nikon cameras, version 1.1 adds support for a plethora of things such as auto bracketing, AF in LiveView, Lightroom Auto-Import support and more!
The app comes with a server client which needs to be run from your computer in order for it to work and if you are using the new 1.1 app version, you will need to make sure you download and use the 1.1 server version, or things will not work!
It’s available in two versions, a lite ($1.99) and a professional ($19.99) and all info as well as comparisions, can be found on OnOne’s website!
Today comes a new feature here called the Friday Video Application Tip that I’s going to be regular. I’m going to feature and show off an application that I like and use here, every Friday in a video. Today is the great application called Things from Cultured Code. Check it out!
I wrote a review of the first edition of Scott Kelby’s, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers, but passing the review on this update of the book is just notwise. As a lot has been updated within the Lightroom 2 application, Scott has rewritten the book from scratch this time around and it shows. If I liked it a lot last time around, it’s just gotten a whole lot better.
You could have imagined that Scott Kelby would just have updated the book for Lightroom 1 with all the new features. Well, that isn’t really him. He’s spent a lot of time to rewrite this from scratch to cover not only the new features, but all the new things he himself have learned during the lifespan of Lightroom 1 and since he wrote the last book. This, I must say, really shows through the book. It is a much more knowledgeable Scott Kelby who has authored this version.
If anyone would come to me and say, “Well, I have the first version of the book. I’ve learnt the LR basics. Surely I don’t need this one”, I would definitely not agree. This book covers all the new features and workflow enhancements plus the whole lot that people have been asking during the lifespan of the previous book.
I really do think that it is a great read for any Lightroom user, as you cannot only pick up feature tips and new ideas but moreover the entire scope of a way on how to process your images from the shoot to the finished client showing and prints. It’s the workflow chapters at the end of the book that really sets it apart from other books on the subject, making it a top read this fall!
