My iPhone is like nerd crack. It’s always in my pocket, even the one on my motorcycle jacket.
I shamelessly noted before that one of the only reasons I got an iPhone was for the Hipstamatic app. In the 6 months that I’ve had the phone now I’ve accumulated quite a few other camera apps as well. One of the more recent purchases was Pano.
Pano allows you to stitch together photos to create a panoramic image right on your phone. With minimal patience, you can put together a kick-ass panorama.
You have to be mindful of lining up the image on the screen when you’re shooting or you are susceptible to defying the laws of physics with your photo. At first you might not notice these types of anomalies. But even when you do – they just might not bother you that much.
You can see the light bending at the stitch points:

Even with their (user) errors, I still like the pictures.
In the last few months I’ve taken hundreds of photos. In that same period of time, I’ve made about 15 phone calls. I almost wish this device was called something other than a “phone”.
Do you use your phone to take photos when out on the bike or are you a die hard digital camera user?
