As per requested, This thread will contain detailed reviews of iPad/iPhone/iTouch apps that will help photographers. I please ask that others post reviews of their favorite apps. I will have many apps to review and it will take some time to go thru them all. The DSLR Bot and DSLR PRO are going to be reposts from other threads as they are done somewhat well... I hope to have at least 4 new reviews each week. Please Join me and post your own in depth reviews.

DSLR BOT

FINALLY!
Bracket for HDR or time lapse or remote trigger from iPhone or iPad!!! Works with infrared remote capable cameras LIKE MY 7D!! (HAPPY DANCE)

This is not teathered to your pc like DSLR PRO, NO PC NEEDED! Just ordered the IR headphone jack and plan on making one today as well for $3.00! AWESOME!!!!

DSLR Remote

I should have posted some more info on this awesome App

(YOU HAVE TO TEATHER YOUR CAMERA TO YOUR PC) and your iPhone or iTouch can control your camera with NO WIRES!

IMAGE: http://www.longislandwallpapers.com/photos/840460196_i9Q4W-L.jpg

Good for studio work where you camera is on a tripod....go to the subject and move there hand and snap....move their head
and snap...then show them the shots right on the iphone without moving out of frame.

Edit all settings and bracket, time lapse and MUCH MORE. Edit ISO, Aperture, Shutter speed...Change your white balance on the fly too! This is soo great. Here are some of the screens

IMAGE: http://www.longislandwallpapers.com/PRIVATE/I-Phone/-/840463576_6iDTo-M.jpg
Remotely shots this

9 shot HDR taken from iPhone and edited later on pc..

(I know the HDR was not needed, but when do I ever need a reason to do a HDR?)

Shown is the iPhone App but it is much nicer on the bigger iPad version.

The Photographer's Ephemeris

This is a great way to position yourself for a long distance shot of an object and predict where the moon or sun will rise or set. I posted a few screen shots to show how it uses the map to draw lines to show the direction of sunrise/sunset.

Here zoomed out you can see the position that I decided to be in that intersects the moon rise..... I changed the day on the right for about 5 days until the moon behind the lighthouse converged with the parking lot I wanted to be in for the long distance shot (I wanted the moon to be big!)

Here is a VIDEO I made of this mornings adventure

Here was the shot that I took this morning at 4:10am

Here is a better shot when I was not concerned about a moon shot and was only worried about quality...different day

Air Display
Use your iPad as a second monitor without cables...uses the router
your pc and iPad are connected with. (Touchscreen still works!)

PhotoBuddy
Please be sure to look at the video at the bottom of the second post

This will help you with Camera settings and making changes on the fly. Most of the
settings you can do in your head like changing the iso at night from 800 to 100 and
figuring out how many times to double the exposure time. But when it comes to
Flash power I am lost. This program ensures that when I have a group of people
together and I have a few flashes, that I dial in the Camera and off camera flashes
for a perfect shot. You do not want to have a large group and say...oh wait, I need
to do that again. The shot below was only possible without any stress due to this
program.

IMAGE: http://www.longislandwallpapers.com/Events/SBU-Seawolves-Team-Pictures/sbu1/763857038_CfEKZ-L.jpg
2 Sigma 500DG Super off camera flashes about 10 feet forward and on a 45 degree angle towards the middle of the group.
Power was figured out using photobuddy otherwise I would have had about 5-8 test shots to dial it in. (not very good with
flashes yet!)

In the second shot on the right I selected the F-Stop so anything I drag, the F-stop will change
to keep the same exposure compensation!

This app has it all!

IMAGE: http://www.longislandwallpapers.com/photos/951983448_jMPgM-M.jpg

I am worthless when it comes to flash, this makes me a pro...One shot and no do overs with mutible flashes off camera setup
with no ETTL!
IMAGE: http://www.longislandwallpapers.com/photos/951983645_bQmsq-M.jpg

Until DSLR's have a Geotag, I can use this for now to take a snapshot with my iPhone or I can take a picture
with my camera of the screen. I usually just press both iPhone buttons at the same time for a screenshot
then I use another app called Smugshot to upload to my smugmug or type it in if needed.
IMAGE: http://www.longislandwallpapers.com/photos/951983849_qLbRa-M.jpg

Timer?
IMAGE: http://www.longislandwallpapers.com/photos/951983979_iaaoH-M.jpg
I usually use the iPhone timer app but this works very well too!

Love the night, and make you night easier with this app. I have no Idea how much it was as I
jailbroke my phone and downloaded it for free. After a quick few days I realized how much it was
worth and did not care if it was $.99 cents or $10, I deleted the app and ordered it from the app
store. It is one of those things where if I like it I support the person making it. I feel the same
way about this app, $.99 or $50, I love Smugwallet and if you are thinking of purchasing it, do
not think.... Just do it as you will NEVER regret it!
(FYI - I do not know the people who wrote this and do not work for the company nor have I ever spoke
with them other than when I needed help one time a LONG time ago by email)

Make your night easier

The video recorder on the iPad makes all these videos run slow, actual

100 Cameras in 1 (previously available for iPod Touch & iPhone) was released yesterday for the iPad and iPad 2. It applies 100 different effects to your photo which you can scroll through and modify in different ways. Developer Trey Ratcliff is responsive to feature requests.
Well worth a look!

StroBox

It allows you to make a lighting diagram to show how a particular image was shot
with multiple lights. Great for explaining how a shot was lit. It is very impressive
if you are using help and a few lights. Quickly show your help what it should look
and you can worry about other things instead of light placement as they will see
exactly what you want.

if someone asked me how I took this image

I would have made this and emailed it to them

good for many light sources and has a ton of graphics!
