Halide have developed an update to their popular mobile photography app specifically for the new Apple iPhone 11 and iPhone Pro. The latest update includes a tactile lens switcher, allowing for a fast and intuitive way to switch between the Wide, Ultra Wide and Telephoto lenses on the iPhone Pro. What makes this switcher really unique is that once you’re familiar with the menu, you can press-and-flick from the lens button to quickly change lenses. This is a fast, natural way to switch lenses.
Rumoured for some time, but now Spectre is available in the App Store. Spectre is an AI-powered shutter for your iPhone, allowing the user to create interesting long exposures.
The long exposures are live in the moment. Spectre saves the entire exposure process as a Live Photo, allowing the user to re-play the exposure as it happened.
We hope to learn more about Spectre in the coming days as we put it through our processes. In the meantime, you can download it here.
We are re-igniting our Tip of the Day section and we have a great one here that’s going to be of huge use to many photographers and to my mind it’s a feature that ought to be written into camera firmware too. Siri, up and until now, has not been able to handle the prospect of literally firing the shutter button. It was possible to tell Siri to open the camera but not to fire the button but now there is a way! You’re going to need the Halide app for this. If you haven’t already downloaded it, I recommend that you do so. Just click here and then follow the steps below:
