There are some people that use just their phone as their primary camera–and that has developed an entire market of folks that love to shoot and upload images with their phone. But sometimes, it’s a bit tougher to take images: like in small confined spots or when you need to be in the photo. Muku Shuttr is aiming to try to solve this problem with their little peripheral. The Muku Shuttr is a low profile remote that connects to your device via Bluetooth and controls the shutter snapping abilities.
And if you’re a mobile shooter, this be the one accessory that piques your interest.
Essentials is a brand new series where we round up specially curated kits for different photographers in different situations. Other items could surely be substituted, but these are what we personally recommend.
There is a brand new workflow that some of the more cutting edge professionals are sticking to these days: and it doesn’t involve spending hours in front of the computer. With the advent of connected camera, Eye-Fi Mobi, and other extremely mobile software, we can create and edit images with loads of amazing looks just by working on the JPEGs that we created pretty much right the first time in the camera. The liberation that this delivers is truly mind blowing if you can embrace it.

Today, Instagram just became a whole lot better. Got an iPad? Great! Instagram has officially launched for the platform, letting you share all those moments instantly from your big ass tablet.
Following the announcement of their video rollout to compete with Twitter’s Vine, Facebook (who owns Instagram) decided that they needed to step it up a notch even more after they saw just how popular video on Instagram became. Every day, people take images with their iPads and upload them to the web. It happens at concerts, during meals, and at baseball games. It was really only a matter of time until this happened.
Eye-Fi is a company that we’ve long loved here at The Phoblographer. They have evolved greatly as they originally let users upload images straight to their computer, then later to their favorite sharing services, and finally then to their mobile device. But the process was always something that was a bit complicated for many. Eye-Fi recently announced their Mobi card–which promised a two step process in order to share your images to your mobile device.
And to be quite honest, we have no problems at all when we say that this is the absolute best card that they’ve put out yet. And the simple brilliance behind it makes using it an even greater joy.
Ready to make that Instagram image of your chicken sandwich you had for dinner last night look like a tintype?
The other day we reported on a brand new app called Koloid–which is supposed to mimic the look of Wet Plate Collodian photos. But just recently, a similar app called Tintype has hit the iTunes store as well. Mike Newton, the creator, states that they worked with a Tintype photographer to get the images as close as possible to the real thing. He also wants to help educate people more about the process through the app. And to do that, him and his team plan on adding a national directory of tintype photographers in a future update.
The app is free with a $0.99 upgrade option. You can also visit their website for more and hit the jump for a video explaining the wet plate collodian tintype process.
Years ago, everyone used to be thrilled to receive the B&H Photo catalog. With prices changing so often though, there really isn’t a very big point to it anymore. They’ve had an Android and iPhone app for a while and today, they’re announcing their free iPad app. Using the app, you can get the latest prices, peruse through the latest gear, and even read manuals on certain products.
Plus this is bound to be loads more comfortable to order and work with. The app is available now for free download in the iTunes store.
