Olympic Photographer Lens Cap Fail

How many of you have ever left your lens cap on the camera and missed an important shot?  (I’m guilty.)

The photographer in the above video had the misfortune of making that mistake in front of TV cameras for the whole world to see.  I hope he still got a keeper or two after he figured out the malfunction.

Aviary Camera and Photo Editing App for iOS and Android

Aviary

Aviary is now available as an app on both iOS and Android.  The app features a camera function, as well as powerful image editing features that allow you to apply Instagram-like looks, crop, rotate, add text and lots more.

At first blush, Aviary appears to be one of the better Android apps that I’ve used, although Camera Awesome and/or Camera+ should measure at or above Aviary’s features on iOS devices.

The app is free with additional presets available for in-app purchase.  You can find Aviary on the iTunes App Store and the Google Play Store.
