Take Panaromic Photos With Your iPhone

The panoramic feature is the widest employed feature in imaging devices. If you are unfamiliar with panoramic, it is a type of photography which allows you to join a series of pictures creating a panorama like 3D view.

Up until now, Panoramic photography was limited to only digital cameras, which came equipped with such lenses that allowed them to capture panoramic stills.

Smartphones lacked this technology as the lens of the smartphone camera is usually not very sophisticated. However, this feature is no longer exclusive to digital cameras. Pixeet has found a solution to this problem.

$35 Waterproof Digital Camera, Amazing Deal

Have you ever wanted to go white water rafting without destroying your state-of-the-art digital camera, or wrecking your brand new Android smartphone? If the answer is yes, Photojojo may have a solution for you. The company has launched a digital camera, priced at just $35, that will take pictures at a 1.3MP resolution (I had a 1.3MP digital camera in 2002).

The LCD display isn’t anything too special, as it measures only 1.4″ diagonal. The camera can take photos of up to 100 feet underwater. While it won’t take the sharpest photos (by far), it certainly is better than nothing, especially when you’re set to go snorkeling but don’t have any water-proof cameras with you.
