Hey there,

I’m looking forward to Roger Guetta’s iPhonography exhibition November 12th to the 27th here in Montreal. I featured Roger’s work a couple of weeks ago, you can read the post here.

The Visual Voice Art Gallery showcases contemporary painting, print, photography, installation and sculpture. The gallery is located in Montreal’s largest centre of the visual arts, the Belgo building, situated in the heart of down-town Montreal. The Belgo is currently home to over 30 art galleries and artist’s studios.

Hope you can make it to the exhibition.

Yeah! My Highly Processed Silhouette

My silhouette taken and processed all with my iPhone 4

My silhouette

So I was bored today, waiting for a customer that was almost 30 minutes late. So after sitting and walking around in circles I saw my shadow on the cement floor. Ok now I go from bored to excited as soon as I “saw” the image I wanted to make. Pull out the iPhone, open Camera+ and start framing and trying different poses. I got this shot almost right away and then started processing. I mostly used PhotoForge2 but also used Filterstorm and Iris. YEAH!

Gymbal – iPhone 4 Case & Tripod Review

I thought I would write a review of the case I use for my iPhone 4. I bought the Gymbal a while back after hearing about it on the “This Week In Photo” podcast.

Gymbal Pro

Gymbal Pro Tripod & Case

The Youbiq website states “The Gymbal has a gimbal, a pivoting, panoramic head that lets you rotate the  iPhone4 around its optical center.” This is a great feature and makes it easier to get better results for panoramas.

The tripod clips into the iPhone 4 case very easily and tightly. Once attached you just pull out the 3 legs and position the iPhone however you want it. It’s small enough that it can fit in your pocket. The case on its own is nice. It is made of a hard plastic and feels good when holding the iPhone.

One problem I did have was the edges of the screen protector I use got all messed up when installing the case. All I did was remove the case, trim the protector and re-install the case. The screen looks a little weird because of the way I cut the protector but still works fine and I don’t really care how it looks.

I bought the pro version because it comes with a real tripod adapter. This way I can use the Gymbal to attach it to my full size tripod if I ever need to. It is a little pricey at $99.00 for the pro version. Although it does include a case, the tripod AND the tripod adapter so I think it’s worth it. The standard model is $69.00.

I also think it would be great if Youbiq comes out with a tripod similar to the Gorillapod system. That way it would be easier to position the iPhone exactly where you want it and even attach it securely to tree branches, fences or other odd places to get the perfect shot.

All in all I really like the Gymbal case & tripod. I’ve tried other cases but this one serves two purposes, protect the iPhone and connect to the tripod.

What do you think? What do you use?
