May examug – RAW pt2 and Our take on AR!

Hello all,

We hope you have all been enjoying the lovely weather we’ve had this weekend, and by all accounts it’s going to be another beautiful day tomorrow. Sorry this email comes rather later than usual, a reminder it’s our May examug meeting on Tuesday!!

Please see below for details of Tuesday’s meeting:

Date: Tuesday 8 May

Time: 7pm – Coffee and Cakes from 6.30pm

Location: ISCA College, Exeter

We begin with part two of two part special look at RAW photography on iOS.

PHOTO APPS ON YOUR iPHONE
Improve your photography for £4 or less!

Apple’s free iPhone Camera app is well designed but limited, but luckily we have several 3rd party apps that are better and very cheap for what amazing things they can do.
Kris will compare 3 of the best of those (Camera+, ProCam 5 and ProShot) so you can see which:

– can shoot in RAW format, TIFF, and JPEG so better quality photo choices
– Give more manual control over the lens
– Have extra Auto features for certain situations
– Take better photos in low light
– Enable certain special artistic effects
– Give more control over Video settings too
– Enable you to export your original files out of Apple photos to edit on your laptop with 3rd Party editors like Photoshop etc.
– Have photo-editing featues within some apps for those who want an easy life and just want to snap better, edit and share.

After the break Graham will have a look at Augmented Reality. What it is? Is it the next big thing or a flash in the pan? What applications make use of it?
We will be exploring the various apps for iOS and giving our hints and tips on getting the most from them.

Plus we have another great set of Raffle prizes, including some new Apple merchandise, and some other treats.

Hope to see you there, and bring a friend.

Graham
