Lenstag‘s stated goal is to put a stop to camera and lens theft, and for that reason alone photographers love them.

The thinking behind the new Android and iOS app Chirp is that if animals in nature communicate through sound, machines should too.

A few days ago, we told you about an app called Koloid that allowed iOS users to capture some of the look and feel of wet collodion photography using their iPhone. The $1 app let you not only take photos, but ‘develop’ them as well by tilting your phone to run chemicals over them.
