Nokia Already Putting Scalado Acquisition to Work in Camera Extras App

It looks like Nokia wasted no time putting the folks at Scalado to work for them. As we reported a week ago, Nokia is acquiring Scalado’s developers, technologies and IP portfolio, and we’re already seeing Scalado’s well-known “rewind” technology make its way into Nokia’s new Camera Extras app.

Besides allowing you to rewind faces for group shots, the Camera Extras app also offers burst shooting, advanced panorama, timers and more. The app, which will remain a Nokia exclusive, launches in the US and China tomorrow. So if you’ve got a Lumia phone and you wanna take advantage of some cool new features, head over to the Windows Phone Marketplace tomorrow, or check out Nokia Conversations for more details.

Camera+ Turns Two, Comments on the Many Acquisition Offers It’s Turned Down

While celebrating its second birthday yesterday, the extremely popular camera app Camera+ revealed that it has sold over 8 million copies since its inception. The question that followed this announcement, naturally, is why hasn’t the app gone the way of Instagram and been bought out for massive amounts of money yet. After all, unlike Instagram, Camera+ is a paid app that has made a profit; wouldn’t that make it even more appealing to the big guys? Well it has, but Camera+’s determination to remain “fiercely independent” has had the higher-ups shutting down even those companies with deep enough pockets to make a tempting offer. Read more…

Stilla: An Amazing 3D Camera App that Lets You Capture All the Angles

A new iOS app from design studio Maybe It’s the Lightening, simply titled Stilla, works with one simple premise: every photo has a second photo — or third or fourth — that your camera missed. For every picture of your friend on the boat, there’s a beautiful sky and a glorious reflection of that sky in the water that you missed. Stilla seeks to remedy that. Read more…

A Giant Viewfinder For Your Phone

Here’s an interesting idea by Oregon-based engineering consultant Paul Anderson called The Daylight Viewfinder. The patent pending invention, which is in the process of raising $44,000 on Kickstarter, is a suction mountable, sun blocking viewfinder/app combo that allows you to take great pictures with your phone (currently iOS only) even in bright daylight.

New App Uses Photo Sharing to Shame “Parking Douches”

Have you ever walked out to your car and seen someone abysmally parked next to you, or up on the sidewalk? Even if they aren’t blocking you in specifically, didn’t you wish there was a way — other than leaving a less than professional note — to let people know that the owner of this car is a jerk? Well, the people over at the Moscow Newspaper The Village decided to takle this problem (which is apparently much worse in Russia) head on by designing and releasing Parking Douche, an Android app that publicly shames bad parkers.

InstaCRT: A Camera App That Offers the World’s First “Real” Filter

Hovering somewhere between “novel idea” and “pointlessly stupid,” InstaCRT is a new iOS app that bills itself as “the world’s first real camera filter.” Photographs processed through the app are given a CRT monitor look that doesn’t involve any digital fakery. Instead, your photo is actually sent to the creators’ machine located in Stockholm, Sweden, where it’s displayed on a tiny CRT monitor and then photographed by a DSLR. The new photo is then beamed back to your phone in less than a minute.

Facebook Launches Its Own Camera App

Huge news came out of the Facebook universe today with little to no warning: Facebook has launched its own camera app. Seemingly out of nowhere, the social networking giant has launched its own “Facebook Camera” camera app that, of course, connects directly to your Facebook account, making it that much easier to take, upload, tag, and comment on your photos.

SloPro App Lets You Shoot Real 60FPS Slow Motion on Your iPhone 4S

Slow-motion video is usually the territory of expensive equipment like the Miro M120. Alternatively, if you’re not looking to shoot professionally, you can always take the video you capture on your phone or regular camera and slow it down, but the results are usually choppy and (sadly) nothing you’d want to broadcast on YouTube. Fortunately, there is another way; iPhone videographers who own the 4S now have a free, fun alternative in a new app called SloPro.

SynchroCam Connects Two Smartphones for Synchronized Photos

The future of consumer photography could very well be with new sensors, or more compact interchangeable lens cameras, or 41-megapixel smartphones; but why not cameras that are wirelessly tethered together? Thats what SynchroCam can do, and for a free app it’s pretty cool.

Using the app you can connect two iOS cameras (ideally from the same device) and take simultaneous shots with both. And even though the app was designed with stereoscopic GIF creation in mind, the hope is that the technology will start looking more like the Apollon Concept in the near future; letting you snap panoramas and 3D images using only 2 smartphones.
