Sadly, the feature's name is misleading. In fact, I'd go so far as to say that it's wrong, if not an outright lie. Turning this option on just enables you to use exposure compensation — it doesn't let you do anything actually "manual". If you enable this option, the ... menu at the lower right of the screen gains a +/- icon, as typically indicates exposure ...

Look at the channel for weather here. I get an email to my phone for various weather presets I made. https://ifttt.com

Disclosure: I'm the guy behind Cine Meter and Cine Meter II, so take what I say with a grain of salt, grin. Do these apps really work, or are they gimmicks? They really work, within the limits of what the built-in camera allows. They may not be able to measure really dim light, for example. Can they get the same information from a scene that a real ...

You could turn your device into a Wifi hotspot and then EyeFi can connect to the internet via your phone (or tablet). I don't have any experience with Eye Fi specifically, but presumably its programmed to scan for a list of known wifi hotspots. I would imagine you could program it to find your phone consistently and then once your device is enabled as a ...

Your options for resizing the 16:9 image mentioned to be 1:1 in size are Crop it Letterbox it Stretch it Let's pretend the image is 16x9 instead of 16:9 (units are irrelevant.) Crop, taking the sides off so that the image becomes "9x9." This is the most obvious way but OP states it is undesirable Letterbox, place blank space above and below so that it ...

There are plenty of iPhone and Android apps collecting photo tips, including composition. I think they're all pretty lame so I'm not going to link to any of them. I don't think there's anything right now that actively analyzes a scene and gives advice, as if Scott Kelby were standing right next to you reading from the appropriate pages of one of his ...

It's actually far simpler than any of the answers posted so far! You don't need trigonometry, or field of view calculators at all, all you need is multiplication and division! Firstly (all else being equal) the size of your object in the image is directly proportional to the focal length (if you double the focal length you double the size). So if you know ...

TLDR: No because you need an additional variable, either the height of what the subject is that fills the frame or the distance at which you are focused (infinity doesn't work though). Long answer... To do this you can use simple trigonometry, but you would need to know either the current or desired distance to subject or the size of your subject (...

The Photographer's Ephemeris is a very popular app used by landscape photographers who need to know when the Moon/Sun is going to be at specific spots. It may be of great help to you.

Try a Google search for "how to watermark images android". I found this which seems like what you want: iWatermark for Android Secure and protect your photos. If you are a photographer or artist iWatermark works for you to by adding a visible personal text or graphic watermark. You could also take a look at some more involved options: http://xjaphx....

IPhones don't make better photos. They have a decent camera (as far as phone cameras go) but there are other phones with better cameras. There are tons of options for post-processing on both Android, Windows Phone and iOS that are better than the built in camera apps on any of the phones. Adobe even makes a mobile version of "Photoshop" though it's really ...

GPS data varies wildly in accuracy depending on location. In big cities, GPS can be very inaccurate because of the urban valley effect and the resulting multipath interference. Often, the best location data comes from proximity to Wi-Fi at that point, which can get you moderately close to the right place, but it still won't be all that accurate. Similarly,...

I found this partial solution here at StackExchange. While I am not sure of the precision to which this calculation is made, it is a first step. Now, if only the results could be calculated for a specified area and then laid over a map as a contour plot to show sunrise and sunset times... Same goes for the moon! Thanks in advance to @erikwkolstad ☺ Not for ...

The latest Sony cameras include an Android subsystem used to run apps from the proprietary Sony PlayMemories Camera App Store (PMCA). We reverse engineered the installation process. This allows you to install custom Android apps on your camera. https://github.com/ma1co/Sony-PMCA-RE

MapAPic Location Scout is good for remembering locations. After you add some locations, you can tag them, search, get directions, share/print as PDFs, and more. UPDATE: As of June 2013, MapAPic can read geo-location exif data from images, and create new locations using that data!

With experience you become more aware as to how lighting and the color of the illuminant will change the way a vista will reproduce. You begin to see that shadows on snow have a blueish tint and you become aware that tungsten lighting is biased towards the yellow. We humans see with our eye/brain and that complicates. Try this enlightening experiment. ...

According to the (currently only) answer at the recent StackOverflow question, Is it possible to access the infrared camera on iPhone X?, not via the approved iOS API library calls. But undocumented API should be possible if you guess how to do it.

I just did a very quick google for "enlarge image canvas ios" and the first result was Photo Canvas Size Increaser.

Not a task I've ever needed to do, but why not kill two birds with one stone & just outsource the job to a decent photo lab? They could provide full-scale images & thumbs [contact sheet quality] all in one pass. You could then reference one to the other by filename & keep/discard in pairs. Snapping each one with a phone just sounds like masochism ...

For extreme weather conditions (rain, really hot, really cold, snow) you can set up weather.com to send you text messages about it. http://www.weather.com/mobile/customtextmessaging.html

No, the EOS Remote app does not have a press-and-lock feature for bulb-mode shooting, like, say, the Triggertrap app does. However, the Triggertrap app is unlikely to work for you, either, given that you need two smartphones to use the wi-fi feature for triggering, as well as a camera shutter cable and dongle. Your best bet is, as has been mentioned, to ...

Any wired remotes that are compatible with canon cameras will work. Look for one that can lock. I found mine new for less than $15. If you don't want to spend the money, look for an old wired cell phone headset with a 2.5mm stereo jack. cut the wire as far from the jack as possible and strip the end of the wire. Most headphone wires have three wires, each ...

There is a portal, where you can select it as ILCE-7(R). It shows some 20 apps, and one of them (E 9,99) does time lapses. It is possible to develop in-cam apps too but I can't find a link so quickly. Maybe that requires an account first.

The answer is a little complex. I'm hotlinking an image from this site: https://filterforge.com/features/version4/groups-and-instancing.html That is a good program to make your own filters. The idea is that you have a basic set of basic "nodes". For example one can be a blur, another one that modifies the saturation and another one that controls contrast. ...

I rather doubt it, since perceived color has little to do with actual color balance. That's why you tend to interpret the color of an object as immutable whether you observe it in direct sunlight, late afternoon (sunset), or indoor incandescent lighting. The only reason we can tell, say, fluorescent vs. low-temperature (Edison bulb) incandescent is that ...

I've never seen any apps that can train you that way, but I have seen a smartphone colorimeter apps that identify colors, as well as an actual smartphone colorimeter/light meter (or at least its Kickstarter). There are more apps to simulate exposure settings, to help train you in appropriate exposure settings for a given scene (e.g., CameraSim). That ...

You can receive training to help you become more aware, but not more perceptive, in the way you mean. Perception is not absolute with fixed values; but, is relative to the abilities of your senses on a continuum. You can become aware that something should be happening on an intellectual level. Such a revelation is set into action with an observation and a ...

I found on the Google Play Store a port for Android of exiftool, named (no surprise) ExifTool, that gives you a command line interface to the well known tool. It's not as comfortable and quick as one would expect from a mobile app, but it works. Workflow: Tap on the 3 dots menu and choose Execute command Type or paste exiftool -tagsfromfile source -...

I don't think there's a filter here, per se. The images are fairly dark ­— one might say "underexposed", although that's subjective — so you'll want to choose exposure settings below what your camera's meter selects. (You can usually use Exposure Compensation for this — dial it down by a few stops, to -2 or -3.) The digital-noise look is a result of high ...

Silly me, I have not googled enough. This is the link to sony camera dev, https://developer.sony.com/develop/cameras/ at the bottom of the page is interesting line: Sony engineers scan Stack Overflow daily for new questions.
