My first month with the Canon T3i

About 6 years ago my mom gave me her Canon Digital Rebel (EOS 300D) and I loved it. Prior to that I’d only used point-and-shoots and the quality of pictures I got with the DSLR was amazing.

Disabling (or enabling) geotagging of photos in iPhone camera

Some people may not be aware that photos taken with the iPhone camera have the GPS coordinates of your location embedded in the EXIF metadata of the file. This means that when you post the picture online or send it to someone, you’re letting them know where you were at a certain place and time. If you’re ok with that then there’s no problem. But if you want to disable it, it’s pretty simple.

The procedure is basically the same as the one I described in this post about enabling Facebook Places. The difference is that once you’re in Location Services you’ll want to make sure “Camera” is disabled. Photos taken from that point on won’t have GPS embedded in their metadata. If you want to turn it back on, just set Camera to “enabled” in Location Services.

It's time for a new camera (again)

My old Canon A540 has served me well but I feel it’s on its last legs. The flash timing seems off for indoor pictures, so the shot gets ruined – too dark but lots of glowing eyes. I’m a real newb with cameras, I like setting it on full auto and just letting it rip. It would be nice to know how to take fancy photos but I’d rather the camera do it for me, because I’m lazy.

Anyway, I’ve narrowed it down to two, the Canon SD770IS and the Canon SD1100IS. I’m leaning more toward the 770 now, it seems to be the better of the two, and only like $10 more.
