Tascam iM2X iPhone Stereo Mic for $39.99 – Deal Alert

 Tascam iM2X

The Tascam iM2X stereo condenser mic for the iPhone is only $39.99 right now at B&H (reg. $79.98). The iM2X records in 16-bit / 44.1 kHz through the free Tascam linear PCM recorder app and supports the iPhone 4, 4S and iPads through the third-gen.

This price has probably dropped due to the new lightning connectors on current iOS devices, but it’s still a solid deal if you are using an iPhone 4S/4 or an prior-gen iPad. Check it out here at B&H Photo.

Camera+ App Update Pokes at Instagram Terms Debacle

Camera+ received an update a couple of days ago for bug fixes and included a little Christmas poem that takes a stab or two at Instagram’s rather poor attempt to update its terms of service and take advantage of its user base.

’Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the App Store,

Not a creature was stirring, not even a Spore.

Some crash bugs were fixed with the greatest of care,

So that you, our beloved Camera+ user, could take photos with flair!

We’ll never do shady things with your shared pics because it just isn’t right.

And on that note… Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

Camera+ runs $0.99 and is available in the iTunes App Store.

Triggertrap Mobile App is Now Free for iOS and Android

Triggertrap

The Triggertrap app that turns your iPhone, iPad or Android device into a remote trigger for your camera is now free. Previously, it was $4.99; however, it will be free at least through the holiday season. (Note that there is a limited-feature “free version” available, but this is the premium version that has now been made free.)

You need a $25 cable to make it work with your DSLR, but it does a whole lot more than a standard cable release remote for that price. I’ve used it with my Canon 5D Mark II and it works very well. Additionally, if you don’t get the dongle, some of the modes (like timelapse) will work with the iPhone’s built-in camera. So, it’s worth having for free anyway.

The Triggertrap apps is available for iOS on the iTunes App Store, and available for Android on the Google Play Store.

Below are some of the triggering methods you can use with Triggertrap. [Read more...]

PostalPix Now Available for Android

PostalPix, the app that lets you order prints from your phone’s camera roll, is now available for Android. I reviewed PostalPix for the iPhone last month and found it to be an excellent and affordable way to get quality prints from your phone.

The print and shipping prices are more than fair, and the print quality is great. Now all you Android users have no excuse to miss out on physical prints for all your great instagram shots.

You can find PostalPix here on the Google Play Store.
