Camlet Mount gives DSLR a monitor through smartphone/tablet

While a lot of smartphones and tablets have high enough specs that you can take quality pictures and videos, there are times when a DSLR is still your camera of choice. But we've gotten so used to the bigger screen of our mobile devices that the small LCD in the DSLR seems to not be enough. A new Kickstarter project can give you that bigger monitor, without buying expensive screens, but just a portable, simple mount for your smartphone or tablet.

“Filter” your photos through geometrical shapes with Overam

With photo editing and filtering apps a dime a dozen, you need something different and special to stand out from the crowd. Overam seems to have achieved that by offering its users something unique. Instead of the usual vintage, sepia, hipster filters that you can apply to your photos to make them somewhat cooler, with this app you get to use geometrical shapes to enhance your mobile pictures. "Where geometry directs photography," is apparently their philosophy.

Adobe Lightroom update: RAW support, access to microSD

Sometimes, you need to work on your photographs in the RAW. Okay, we don't actually mean photo editing while you're butt naked, but if you're a real photographer, you know we mean the RAW file format, or the yet "unprocessed" shots you take with your camera. The latest update to Adobe Lightroom brings you the ability to work with RAW images, but with a slight caveat, especially if you're using older Android devices.

Facebook now lets you make digital scrapbooks of your kid’s pictures

Parents, especially new ones, can always be found sharing photos of their child or children on social networks. Some even give monthly or weekly photo updates to show off how cute their progeny are, especially to relatives or loved ones that are far away and can only see the kids online.

Facebook, is now giving you a much more organized way of sharing your children's photos with their new Scrapbook feature.

FrontBack Camera ideal for taking photos from both sides

There are thousands of camera and photography apps available for Android devices but I don't know any that works for both the back camera and front camera. The FrontBack camera works like a twin camera app, taking pictures of two views and placing them in one photo. This is perfect for those who like to take selfies and photos of friends and family all the time.

Geak Camera gives you live filters for your mobile photo needs

There are a lot (and we mean a lot) of camera and photo apps out there for mobile photo enthusiasts. Choosing one (or maybe two or three) to use can be a pain. If you want something that has several filters and one that can actually let you see how your photo will look with the filters before you take them, then maybe you'd like to consider this new cam on the block called Geak Camera.

Make editing batch pictures easier with VSCO’s copy + edit

Editing photos has definitely become easier for the layman with the advent of mobile photography apps. You just slide, swipe, and tap, and your photos look much better than if you had experimented on it with your basic photoshop skills, and you didn't even have to leave your smartphone. VSCO is one of the most popular camera apps on the market, and now they're making it even easier for you to edit multiple photos, if what you want to do to them is basically the same.

Flasher brings instant light for your mobile photography needs

Unless you have the brand new Samsung Galaxy S6, which boasts of its HDR and OIS capabilities , then taking pictures in low-light situations is almost always a pain. Your only option is to use another phone's flash as your light source or to just retouch the photo through filters or even Photoshop afterwards. A new Kickstarter project wants to help you get rid of that problem by providing you with a light source for all your mobile photo needs.
