Focal length: 100mm
Shutter Speed: 1/200
The internet is abuzz about the iPad, and I have a few thoughts.
#1 - I want it. It's beautiful! Can you imagine handing the iPad to someone to show off your images? (Just so long as they don't drop it.)
#2 - If I have an iPhone, what else will it do for me? Seems like aside from being bigger, the functionality isn't that different. I'd feel silly carrying both, but probably not silly enough to stop me from doing it, if I could get my hands on one. Which is unlikely to happen any time soon. (So back to thought #1, I want one . . .)
#3 - What would portable technology look like without Apple? I ask this as a PC user, but an iPhone owner. A lot less attractive, and a lot more gray plastic, I think.
Anyway, back to the picture at hand, which I think would look excellent on an iPad. I've been pushing myself recently to shoot at longer focal lengths, as I got really comfortable in Thailand with 50mm and wider. And although sometimes it's a bit tough not to throw my 50mm on the camera, I've been enjoying the exercise. I love the depth of field here, that's for sure. And I've been having fun playing with compression.
