I love having my iPhone with me to take shots when I’m out and about but for me nothing beats my Canon 70D. I’m off work at the moment and out and about on day trips and been using it quite a lot. For me the thing I love the most about the Canon range is that for me they reproduce the colour that I remember seeing when I was there taking the shot.
We went to Cotswold Wildlife park yesterday and I did my normal iPad workflow. I took the SD card out of the camera and used the Apple SD Card dongle to impart the images onto my iPad Mini. These then get uploaded to iCloud Photo Library and I can access anywhere.
My editing app of choice is Darkroom. I edited the one above using my iPhone XS and exported as a fresh copy.
This combination of a great DSLR and a really portable iPad Mini works great for me. They both fit in my camera bag easily (Lowepro 22l hatchback) when I’m away on holiday and want to get images off the card for backup.
Do you manage photos via an iPad? What’s your workflow?
I had this experience once I’d updated to the latest firmware. If you find the touchpad no longer works once it’s been updated then do the following.
- Take the USB cable that came with the headphones and plug it into a usb charging plug
- Turn on the plug
- Press and hold the power/Bluetooth button and plug the other end of the cable into your headphones (connector is on the right cup)
- Keep holding for a few seconds then let go and disconnect the cable
Turn the headset on again by pressing the power/Bluetooth button. With mine the touchpad started working again straight away.
A very weird post but bear with me. I tripped and my AirPods ended up out of the back door into a puddle of mud. I gave them a good wash in the sink and left them in a warm room to dry off. After a week they still didn’t sound right, podcasts were fine but when it came to music they sounded terrible.
Well the good news is that now 5 weeks later they have suddenly sprung back into life and I have bass back. They sound just like they did before my little accident.
So the morale of this story is that if yours do get wet and sound terrible give them time to dry out. Charge them in your case and keep using them, they’ll sort themselves out.
Each time my HomePod says “huh, what did you say?” when I haven’t said the magic word I keep meaning to write this post so I’m finally doing it. You can disable “hey Siri” on the iPad and touch the top instead, here’s how you do it.
Fire up the Home app and tap on your HomePod.
Once you have tapped on it, tap on settings.
Make sure you copy settings above.
Looks like 3D Touch is going away and deleting apps on your iPhone just got a little longer.
There are two ways to do this in iOS 13.
The first way is to tap and hold until you see the menu as follows
You can then tap ‘rearrange apps’ and then you’ll see them jiggling around as normal.
You can then tap the ‘X’ as you would in iOS 12.
The second way is to keep holding your finger down when the menu for rearranging apps has popped up. Apps will start to jiggle and you can delete as normal.
I came across Gang Beasts a couple of years ago but didn’t pick it up until very recently but it’s one of the best games I’ve played online for a while.
Here’s the official site for more info on the game itself.
It’s not obvious what the controls are so here are the ones I use most.
- L1: left punch or hold to grab
- R1: right punch or hold to grab
- Hold both L1 and R2 then triangle to pick up
- Hold X to run
- Circle to head but
That’s pretty much all you need control wise.
It annoys me that is on by default rather than asking permission so thought I’d share how to turn it off.
Most of the BBC apps are the same in terms of settings. Head to settings and then check the share stats settings.
It’s a bit different in the sport app.
