Re: iPhone Photography Videos

Re: iPhone Photography Videos

BTW, in one part of the Making-of video, you can see that the photographer has a gimbal on the iPhone.

Here's one that got a good review and in relatively inexpensive:

Re: iPhone Photography Videos

Apple has released two new videos, both remarkable. The "release" video is especially fun if you're a nature aficionado. Try to recognize each species before the next one comes on screen.

We would open a page--on a forum somewhat similar to the Straitmac Forum--but instead of seeing the various messages, the screen would flash and a plain text version of one of the messages would appear. It looked like it was instantly (or at least quic...

Finder Action Button

I don't normally have the Action button enabled in my Finder Toolbar. But recently my son told me he'd found that the Finder has a useful Rename File feature within the Action button. See screenshot.

You could clean it with an optical wiper like Flents Wipe 'N Clear or with an alcohol swab, like those used to clean skin before an injection. The Wipe 'N Clear wipe...
