Be More Childlike – Go Your Own Way

By John Paul Caponigro

You know those stories your parents tell about you when you were a kid? They tell them so often you build up synthetic memories as you revisit them over and over again. My father often tells this story about me. “I knew the kid would be alright the day he came back from school with two drawings. ‘Look what the teacher made me do.’ Blue sky, green grass. ‘Now look what I did.’ Orange sky, purple grass.” Yesterday I asked my son “Do you want realistic or solarized color?” “Messed up!” was his response.

As adults, how often do we allow ourselves such creative freedom?

onOne Software’s DSLR Camera Remote 1.1 Which Works With Nikon Cameras is Now Available in Apple’s App Store

By Vincent Versace
onOne Software’s Version 1.1 of DSLR Camera Remote for iPhone and iPod touch is now available for purchase and download in Apple’s App Store. The latest version of the remote camera control application is now for both Canon and Nikon digital SLR cameras is a free update if you own either  v1.0 of the Lite or Professional versions.

To run this application you will also need the Mac/Windows companion software, DSLR Camera Remote Server 1.1, which is now available. This is very important: Version 1.0 of the server software is not compatible with v1.1 of DSLR Camera Remote, so you need to load v1.1 of the server software when you u install the updated app.

This  release of DSLR Camera Remote and DSLR Camera Remote Server adds support for Nikon digital SLRs (in addition to Canon), improved RAW+JPEG handling, burst shooting, and a really whizz bang Auto Bracketing feature, the Fire button is also way more responsive.
On the scale of 1 to 10 on the VinnieV’s must have software this one is an 11.
