Camera+ For iPhone is Free Through November 16th; Here’s How to Get It

Camera+ is one of the most well-liked third party camera apps for iOS devices. It has sold over 10 million copies, and its robust interface and suite of editing tools help set it apart from the stock camera app.

Normally Camera+ would set you back $3 in the app store, but right now there's a lesser-known promotional offering from Apple that lets you download a copy for free. You just need to know where to look.

Did ABC Pull These Horrible ‘Once Upon a Time’ Promo Photos?

Earlier today, Redditor excranz shared a downright horrible set of promo photos that he claims ABC published on its PR site and took down shortly after. Apparently, the photos are for the ABC show "Once Upon a Time," and between the blur, poor lighting and awkward poses, people have a hard time believing these didn't go straight into the "unacceptable" pile.

Promo Idea: Use Tiny DSLR USB Drives to Make Sure Your Photos Are Seen

To promote this year's edition of its sports photography competition, Red Bull Illume is sending out a pretty slick promo. It's simply a USB drive loaded with a press media kit, but the presentation is so clever that we thought we'd share it with you (perhaps you can do something similar to promote your own photography business).

Rankin Documents Photo Shoot Using 15 Autographer Wearable Cameras

To demonstrate its potential for documenting life's memories, the company asked renowned photographer Rankin to document a photo shoot using its prototype cameras.

A Clever Polaroid Camera Promo Mailer Made with Card Stock

We've shared examples of creative promotional mailers in the past, but we usually don't receive them. A few days ago, however, we received a small box from the folks over at Photojojo. Inside was a clever papercraft Polaroid camera that serves as both a press kit and a desk decoration.

Strange: Samsung Giving Away Cameras to Anyone Named David Bailey

Samsung is doing one of the strangest promotional stunts we've seen in recent times. To celebrate the new NX1000 mirrorless camera announced back in April, they're giving away the camera to anyone in the UK named David Bailey.
