MBP Podcast Companion
By Martin Bailey Photography K.K.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The MBP Podcast Companion iPhone/iPad App is a portal to a wealth of photography information and education, centered on the Martin Bailey Photography Podcast, Forum and Community, and includes useful applications to help you in your everyday photographic endeavors.
Here are the MBP Podcast Companion Apps main features...
This is an audio and video player to augment the Podcast. It displays the images being discussed as you listen, and is really just an alternative way to listen to the Podcasts for when you don't have access to iTunes. You can also play the audio via the player or iTunes on your iPod, while you use the DoF Calculator so we can walk through calculations as you listen when necessary.
The easy to use DoF calculator enables you to see how much of your subject or scene will be in focus with any given camera or CoC (Circle of Confusion) size, focal length, aperture and distance-to-subject combination. Each value can be set individually and you can also see the hyperfocal distance for that focal length/aperture combination or reset the calculator to hyperfocal distance values by tapping the green Hyperfocal Distance box.
NOTE: If all this talk of Circle of Confusion and Hyperfocal Distance is above your head, you really need to buy this app and subscribe to the Martin Bailey Photography Podcast in iTunes! :-)
Web Site Links
There's a page with links to the main Web sites that we use on the MBP Community, including the Blog, which automatically formats posts for the iPhone or displays the standard format if you prefer, and you can jump to the forums and Members' Galleries as well as Martin's Photography Tour and Workshops site among others.
Contact Us Links
You know how you sometimes want to ask something or send feedback while listening, but by the time you get to your computer you've forgotten? Now there's a Contact page right there in the app, with links to send Martin an email, or to jump to our Contact form, if you want to send a message via the Web site.
