editor’s letter//

Photography is changing. Back in the day, you had to send your holiday snaps to the chemist to be developed before you could enjoy them.

sharper shooting

It’s so much easier to take photos with the iPhone since Apple let you use the volume controls instead of the big white on-screen button. You can hold your phone more comfortably and press a button without wobbling it as you take your shot, but why did it take Apple so long to give us this feature? We’d been crying out for it for years, but they ignored us. They even banned third-party camera apps from the app store if they allowed it. Does it make sense to you?Mary Dawkins, Cardiff, WalesEditor Says: Yes – and no. Apple has long been resistant to apps using onboard controls for anything other than what they were originally intended to do. This may seem tight, but it works in our favour in the end…
