The Future of Tablet Computing – 2013 and Beyond

leave a comment »

The Rise of the Tablet ComputerFew electronic devices have enjoyed the rapid surge in popularity and usage that tablet computers have. Many consumers consider the January 27, 2010 announcement of the launch of Apple’s iPad by the late Steve Jobs as the birthdate of the tablet computer, however, tablets as we know them today have existed for over 20 years.According to Techradar, the first real tablet computer was the GRIDPad, launched in 1989. This basic, mono-color portable computing device had a 10-inch screen and boasted 3-hours of battery life, however, the whopping $2,400 price tag kept this early tablet out of reach for the average user. Since that time, tablet-like touchscreen devices such as PDA’s gained in popularity, proving to computer companies that there was strong demand for portable computing devices. In 2007, the Amazon Kindle was launched, introducing readers to a portable, paperless way to read their favorite books.Tablets now rank among the most popular electronic devices throughout the world. Techcruch reports that eMarketer estimates there were approximately 13 million U.S. tablet users in 2010, 33.7 million in 2011 and an estimated 54.8 million in 2012. According to this report, the number of Americans who use devices like the Microsoft Surface, Apple iPad and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 will grow to 90 million by 2014, meaning that about half of all American adults will own a tablet device within a few years.What Makes Tablets So Popular?Tablet computing has become wildly popular among a broad range of consumers, with everyone from schoolchildren to senior citizens using tablets at school, home and work. According to a June 2012 report from the Online Publishers Association (OPA), “tablet usage is exploding”, with content consumption (watching movies, reading e-books, buying apps and shopping) being the most common reason why people use tablets.Just How Popular Are Tablets?Research by the OPA revealed that tablet owners use their tablets a lot – spending an average of 14 hours every week on their devices. Most tablets are used to access information on the Internet, with checking email, game playing, social networking and media consumption also ranking among the most frequent uses of tablet computers.Tablet computers have even become a fixture in fast food restaurants, with a Virginia Beach McDonald’s offering up free Apple iPad use with their fries, burgers and shakes.Tablets, Wi-Fi & The Cloud – A Perfect MatchWhile the portability and affordability and functionality of tablet devices are often cited as the main reasons why these devices have gained such widespread acceptance among all consumer groups, without Wi-Fi, tablet computing would not exist. Tablet computers rely on wireless Internet connections using either Wi-Fi or 3G/4G cellular to connect users with their favorite websites, email and work servers.Along with Wi-Fi, the advent of cloud-based computing has helped spur on the popularity of tablets, since many of these portable devices have relatively little onboard memory. Thanks to cloud computing, tablet users can store their favorite movies, music, photos and digital files on remote servers, accessing these files on demand via the Internet. This means that tablet computers do not need to have large, bulky hard drives onboard. This helps to reduce the cost of tablets, making them lighter and more portable while extending the battery life, adding to the portability of these devices.Are Tablets and E-Readers Replacing Books?According to a recent infographic released by Mashable, e-readers like the Amazon Kindle are surging in popularity, with e-book readership nearly doubling between 2011 and 2012. In 2011, over 40 percent of American adults read an e-book on a tablet, smartphone or e-reader.While some critics believe that tablets and e-readers could lead to the end of traditional paper-based books and magazines, others point to the benefits of the rise of e-reading. Mashable reports that e-book devices and tablets actually increases readership of novels, non-fiction e-books and publications, with owners of devices like the Amazon Kindle reading nearly twice as many books each year than readers of traditional-style books. Among those who use a tablet to read on, 25 percent do so to learn or gain new information, a promising statistic for the future of writers and publishers who feared obsolescence with the decline of paper-based book sales.What’s Next?Industry watchers predict that tablet use will continue to grow, and in many households even replace traditional desktop and laptop computers. As these portable computers continue to become more powerful and affordable, tech companies will focus on building more apps and designing even more advanced devices. Tablets generally cost about the same, or in some cases, less than either desktop or laptop computers, leading many consumers to consider replacing their current computer with a tablet device.Tablet computers such as the Apple iPad and the Microsoft Surface are leading the way among mobile devices that allow everyone to stay connected using the Internet, no matter where they work, live or play. While the traditional PC will endure in many homes, schools and businesses, consumers can expect to see tablets everywhere from their local hospital to schools, churches and libraries.

Wedding Photography Mistakes Amateurs Need to Avoid

leave a comment »

Wedding shooting can be one of the most difficult assignments a photographer can come by in his lifetime. A lot is at stake here and photographers usually make loads of mistakes while they are looking for the right kind of photo at weddings.Step 1: InexperienceAnyone who owns a DSLR or any other advanced compact camera system has to be called for a wedding photography some time or the other. Shooting a wedding is mighty big job and must not be left on the shoulders of an inexperienced. In case you are being paid, ensure that your commitment actually pays off. Ensure that the couple in question knows all about the situation they are about to face.

The perfect kit makes the job perfect. To this ensure, two decent cameras, selected lenses and a couple of flashguns added to it.And in case you are not confident enough just accept the role but as the second photographer, this means you will be shooting from alternative angles, having duplicate shots and take a couple of the pro’s shots. This will all add to your experience.Step 2: ExposureThe next big trouble is set in form of the color combination of the costumes of the bride and the groom. The biggest headache to every photographer is not to overexpose the bride’s white dress, while he tunes in to the details in the groom’s suit.If over exposed, the dress will be set as an uniform mass of white light, that can be put to no further use. While any underexposure will make it look grey and grubby. Underexposure can be corrected post photography, with a little noise, but it must be a little so as not to lose on the groom’s dark suit.An ideal photograph is one that produces an image which has the details finely lined throughout the range of the tonal area.

Use digital cameras, the features of this will have a huge range of advantage over the film cameras. Check the exposure immediately after you take the picture and adjust the exposure accordingly. The auto-exposure bracketing facility is used to take a sequence of images without any extra cost and in quick succession.The histogram view to your camera, aims to produce images that actually has a peak towards the end right side of the scale. To make things easier, turn on the cams highlight settings. This will warn you of over- exposed areas, so that you can shoot again.

Tamron 180mm f/3.5 Macro – The Big Lens For Extreme Macro Shooters

leave a comment »

The Tamron 180mm f/3.5 Macro is a wonderful lens, ideal for shooting extremely small and moving subjects such as insects. I had great fun shooting with this lens, though it is a bit on the expensive side at a street price of $700.It has an excellent finish and a solid feel. Although it has twice the reach of the Tamron 90mm f/2.8 Macro lens, this lens performs as good optically.

I mainly used this lens to shoot insects and small critters pictures and I’m always pleased with the results.There’s only one minor thing that can be improved on this lens: make the autofocus faster. To me, I always use manual focus with a Macro lens, so this is not an issue for me. However, this will be an issue for amateur user who still rely on autofocus when doing macro photography.The Tamron 180mm is also excellent for portrait work. It gives good results, sharp with creamy bokeh.This lens can be used with both cropped sensor and full frame sensor cameras. This is a great advantage for people who have dual configuration DSLR system (cropped and full-frame).

To conclude, this is an excellent lens to handle. It gives you professional results for both macro and portrait photography.I have a feeling that Tamron will release an update for this lens soon, but they haven’t confirmed it yet. For macro shooters that want to bring their game to the next level, this lens is the deal.
