500px app pulled from the Itunes app store by prudent Apple that thinks of the children (and its shareholders).

Oh, 'Articstic Nudes' you're the troublemaker again, Michael Zhang from PetaPixel reports:

"If you were planning to install 500px’s popular photo sharing apps on your iPhone or iPad today, you’re out of luck. Both apps were abruptly yanked from the iTunes App Store earlier today over the fact that users can search for photos showing artistic nudity. 500px co-founder Evgeny Tchebotarev tells us that the situation started last night after the company received a call from Apple, informing them that their latest version 2.0.3 update could not be approved due to the reason stated above. . . . read more

"645 Pro is great once you get the hang of it. It gives DSLR users a familiar interface and its “on-camera” controls make changing settings relatively easy. I like being able to lock the focal plane, exposure and white balance. It gives a more DSLR feeling to my photos than Apple’s native camera app or even Camera +. Without auto-processing, the blacks were deeper and the edges of silhouettes were cleaner. The few filter options available are subtle and the “backs” provide somewhat unique dimensions for iPhone photos. . . . read more

Pop Photo: Instagram's new terms of service make lame filters the least Of User Worries, starting this January, Instagram will for all intents and purposes be able to sell your images.

Stan Horaczek has picked up some of the goodies in Instagram's new terms of service. Troubling stuff, to say the least:

"They sound like similar lawyer speak, but there are a few phrases in there that make a world of difference. "Transferrable" and "sub-licensable" are the most troubling because they give Instagram the right to literally sell your images to, well, whoever. When you upload your photo to the service, you're giving them a license to show it as part . . . read more

Google releases Nik Software's Snapseed for Android, offers the IOS version for free, and some really tight Google+ integration.

Full story at the Verge:

"This is not a head-to-head battle with Instagram. Google's strategy here is to go after the photo geeks, the prosumers, the folks who resent how 90 percent of images now have the same retro filter. "It’s not like Instagram with one click filters," says Josh Haftel, a 12-year-veteran of Nik Software now working out of Google's Mountain View HQ as a product manager on Snapseed. "You’re not in and out in 5 seconds. You do more customization, from color saturation to light leaks." . . . read more

Mattebox for iPhone review and thoughts.

This review is a bit oldish, but mattebox got the focus of my attention earlier today, and it got me craving for an iPhone. This app mimics-to all possible extent the functionality and interface of the Konica Hexar, and that cam is mostly based on my all time favorite film camera, the Contax G2. Potential show stoppers (as in ANY iPhone apps due to the @$%# Apple Api) are locked iso, shutter speed, and a tendency to refocus every now and then. For now, these problems can only be solved by a porting of Mattebox to Android.  . . . read more
