The CamRanger is a new device on the market for creating a wireless network to connect your Canon or Nikon* DSLR to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad for live-view tethering capabilities. A device like this can be potentially indispensable for landscape, architecture and studio product photographers. Additionally, the CamRanger supports Live View video recording so you can use your iPhone or iPad as an external monitor. I’ve spent some time now with the CamRanger and what follows are my thoughts and review.

iPhone5mod, creater of iPad and iPhone accessories, has just introduced a new CF card reader and an all-in-one card reader with Lightning interface. Both can be used with the latest generation of iPhones and iPads which come with the new Lightning connector instead of Apple’s old 30-pin connector. This is especially good news for those of us who recently migrated to the latest generation iPhone or iPad and were left without a (native) solution to get our data on our devices. Well, here it is now. The iPhone5mod CF card reader is available for US-$ 24.90, while the all-in-one card reader comes in it US-$ 36.90. They can be ordered from iPhone5mod’s website.
Apple states that the iPhone is the world’s most popular camera. But for the life of it, it couldn’t really do anything macro related unless you used the Digital Zoom function. But the new LensMag additions from Carson are looking to solve that. It mounts on without the use of glue or anything else but magnets. Plus, they come in different magnifications (10x and 15x) and store away in a small case.
The Lens Mags are available for the iPhone 5
, iPad, and iPad Mini and will set you back $19 for what are essentially tele-conversion options for your iOS device. And we encourage you to not pull this thing out on a date.
You know that toolbag that pops their iPad up at the concert or event to take a picture? Well today Photojojo is helping that toolbag take thing a step further, bro! Introducing the telephoto lens for the iPad. The company states that it adds 10-12x more telephoto zoom range to your device. It also lets you manually focus. We’re a bit unclear on details though because the email we received said that it has a fixed zoom while their website says that it will go from 10-12x.
This very sad optic will cost you $25 and your dignity.
Ever heard of Toddy Gear? Don’t worry, we haven’t either–but today they’re announcing their latest line of smart clothes used for cleaning phones, screens and other shiny thingers because we all have loads of them in our lives thanks to Steve Jobs. The new Toddography line is targeted at people who love to wear their love of photography and cameras in the pants–with the new cloth designs that is. These designer microfiber cloths are meant to tackle dirt, dust and smudges from iPhones, iPads, iPods, Android devices, tablets, even eyeglasses or camera lenses. Plus they have an antimicrobial coating and are machine washable if you’re a germophobe.
The Exposed, Composition, and Darkroom cloths are now available for purchase at the according links.
Just remember that Nikon recommends to not get your halitosis on your lenses.
Ever wanted to shoot RAW files with your iPhone or iPad. Well that’s what Cypress Innovations is apparently touting that their new Digital Negative App can do for you. According to them, the app will capture fully uncompressed and full data from the image sensor and then convert it into a DNG–which is Adobe’s native RAW file format that they have been trying to make universal. That means that when you pull them into Lightroom or Photoshop, you’ll have loads more versatility when it comes to editing.
Still, you can’t have full manual control over your picture taking abilities. However, this is still a huge leap in iPhoneography.
Digital Negative is now available for download from the iTunes store.
