Podcast 21: Conversation with Derrick Story, Pro Photog and Author, About iPhone Photo Apps

The Internet is a wonderful thing. It gave me the opportunity to work with professional photographer and author Derrick Story for the past 7 years or so even though we have never met in person. Derrick was an editor at O’Reilly Media for much of that time. And, it was he who gave me the opportunity to write a bit for O’Reilly Media. He knew about my fascination with cameraphones even back then. And, I was thrilled when he asked me to write a handful of cameraphone hacks to his book…

Digital Photography Hacks

I remain fascinated with cameraphone in general until today. So, I asked Derrick to speak with me specifically about the iPhone and its photo capabilities for this podcast. Derrick provides some great information about using everything from the high-end (and expensive) Adobe PhotoShop CS4 to free and low-cost (99 cents to a few dollars) iPhone photo-related apps.

You can find Derrick’s own blog at…

…where he often mixes in iPhone related photo information with other digital photography info. If you found this podcast interesting, you definitely want to check out Derrick’s own podcast. And, in particular, download the podcast he produced on March 17, 2009. He provides a lot of detailed iPhone photo advice in that particular podcast too.

CHDK Wiki: How to Hack A Canon PowerShot Digital Camera


I really tempted to try a CHDK Wiki Canon PowerShot digital camera firmware hack. But, a big streak of digital cowardice is getting in the way :-) According to their FAQ, the changes are not actually written to the camera in a permanent way. The firmware hack can be reversed by simply removing the flash card with the hack on it. Applying the hacks adds features to some (but not all) Canon PowerShot cameras.
