->> yeah....no....I don't get it....I've never used my iphone like it was a DSLR...just the whole concept of limiting how much you shoot on the iphone is already in place unless you want to fill up all your memory with crappy photos....nah...I'll pass on this. thanks though, I'm certainly it will be the hipster thing for photographers who wished they grew up shooting film. 8)

->> You pay two bucks to have your phone count to 36 for you?

I teach college photo courses now where in my Photo-J class I put the screws to the students by taking away their 8-, 16- and 32-gig cards on deadline. I take them to a high school basketball game and supply them with 96-meg cards. Depending on the camera that equates to between 12-27 raw files. I then use blue painter's tape from Home Depot to cover their camera's rear screen to prevent chimping and file deletion. I've had kids start to literally sweat under the pressure of having to think and plan their shots.

They may not like it, but by golly they learn how to choose their shots and edit in their mind.

->> People have asked me what was it like to shoot film and while I have probably described it fairly well it never occurred to me to suggest that they simulate it for themselves sometime with gaffers tape and a low capacity memory card.

Now that I have, thanks to Doug, what might be the best answer for this ever, I will probably never be asked the question again :)

That is fascinating!......I can't help but to agree with you on getting students to concentrate on the action and picking the right moment to shoot. Excellent.

->> So not to be "totally" mean, I allow the students to use the rear screen to set the white balance and make sure their exposure histogram is correct. They then erase the test shots whereupon I pull out the blue tape without warning and tape their cameras. The shocked look on some of their faces are classic combinations of bewilderment, deer caught in headlights, going cold turkey, etc.

->> I've said this before, but I think all those apps like Hipstamatic, Instagram, should force the photographer to have to compose with parallax (basically like shooting with a TLR). Think it might weed out some of the content out there, or at least give folks an idea of the skill needed to shoot like that.

->> Erik... powerbook and ls-1000? Try backing up a few years using Leafax transmitters, or back further making 8x10 prints and caption paper through a typewriter, with 8-minute transmissions for b/w and nearly 30 minutes for color.

No picture galleries, no sending a dozen for one or two to be used. As a photographer you also had to be a top-notch editor too.

And woe be it to the poor soul that happened to close the outside door too hard or walk across the floor too fast in a mobile trailer office while one of those things was scanning a key photo!!!

->> If anyone is really nostalgic for the old days I have an AP portable wirephoto transmitter in the basement complete with cables and instructions that you're welcome to borrow if you want to show a class how things used to be done. Make an 8x10 color print and try figuring some way to receive the three color separations (8 minutes each) over a phone line. I believe that it transmits (analog) at about 110 Baud.

->> Heck we didn't even have the portable version of the transmitter. We had the big blue box and a janitor's mop sink as the only source of water at IU in Bloomington. My best memory is the night the mop sink plugged, overflowed and when we came back from shooting the second half the water was headed down the hall outside the door.

->> When I say we used an AP transmitter what I meant was that we used to draw pictures of events and then describe those pictures to someone on the other end of a telephone line, no, wait, we tapped out a description using a telegraph key set, one tap for white, two taps for black, over and over again (we called them "pixels") until some approximation of an image started to take shape at the receiving end.

Not to mention the fact that we lived in a hole in the road covered with a tarpaulin...

->> Doug ... great work on training your students that while good equipment is essential, creating great content in photography has so much more to do with the gray matter behind the eyeball that is peering through the viewfinder than what lies beneath the viewfinder.

I can imagine the initial shock your students experience, though I think they will fare far better from the experience. Good for you for setting the bar high.

No motor drive with that margin of error.

->> UPI photographer Frank Cancellare (he took the famous "Dewey Defeats Truman") started out in the days of Speed Graphics and sheet film holders and was used to shooting one frame per assignment, always a good one.

UPI changed to Rolleiflex cameras that offered 12 pictures per roll. The story is that Frank would go out on assignment and come back with a roll of film with one exposure, a good one. One day he came back to the office and handed the roll to the lab guy and said, "There are two exposures on the roll". A hush went around the room until he turned to the "masses" and said, "The first one's a blinker".
