Tech Tuesday: Nanocoat your smartphone & use it to capture the Olympics

This week on News 1130 Radio in Vancouver, I talked about these topics:

  • Nanocoat your Smartphone: A California company, Liquipel, will make your smartphone (mostly) waterproof with a nanocoating that it applies to your device. While not 100% waterproof, this coat will protect your device from splashes and quick dunks that would destroy an untreated device. A $60 service that will save your device might be a worthwhile investment. The coating is available for a variety of devices including those from Apple, Samsung, Motorola and HTC. (source)
  • Photojournalist uses iPhone to capture Olympics: It’s often been said that a good photographer can use any camera to take a great photo. Dan Chung is well on his way to proving this as he is using nothing more than an iPhone 4S and an addon telephoto lens to photograph the London 2012 Olympic Games. He’s processing the photos directly on the iPhone usin the Snapseed iPhone app. Dan’s photos prove that it’s possible to take great photos with just your phone and a good eye…although the camera on the iPhone 4S is one of the best out there so that helps. I only wish the 4S existed when I covered the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics…probably could have left my DSLR behind a few times at least. (source)
