Create Great iPhone Photos – New Book

Create Great iPhone Photos is a new book from Allan Hoffman that covers iPhone photo apps, tips and tricks to help users get the most out of their iPhone cameras.  I don’t know that I’ve seen a book solely dedicated to using your iPhone’s camera, but if you’re really wanting to do more with your iPhone photography, you can find the book for about $19 on Amazon.

Golla Camera Bags

One of the things about CES is that you always see a brand that you’ve never seen before.  At this year’s CES, I came across Golla Bags, which makes dozens of different camera, laptop, iPad and general electronic accessory bags.

Golla Bags also come in a wide variety of bright colors and feature several different designs.  By orders of my wife, I’m always on the lookout for pink camera bags.  Golla Bags has plenty of those, including the three above.  The two on the left are more for poing and shoot cameras, while the larger bag on the right could accomodate a mirrorless camera, superzoom camera or small DSLR.

You can see the complete selection of Golla Bags gear on Golla.com.  Additionally, you can purchase some of the Golla Bags on Amazon.com and Adorama – although neither retailer currently appears to carry the entire line.
