ProCamera Turns Your iPhone into an SLR

This is an iPhone only app that makes taking a picture with your phone similar to taking one with a single-lens reflex camera. It costs $5.00. The app’s features include:

1. Many controls and information, such as whether of not the flash is active
2. White balance and ISO setting
3. Live histogram
4. HDR shooting
5. Anti-shake feature
The Google Play Store has an app called Pro Camera, but this is not the same app as ProCamera. There is a similar app available for android devices called Camera FV-5. It costs $3.95.

A Review of the New iPad Pro

A summary of the review is that the iPad Pro is a good tool for sketching, but not a computer for doing serious work. I have never used any digital device that could come close to giving me the control over my sketching I get with a simple, no-tech pencil. I make drawings and ink them, scan them, and finish them (sometimes) in Photoshop or Illustrator. I don’t need an iPad Pro for my art work.
