New ad by Apple showcases iPhone 5 camera

Apple has posted a new video on its YouTube channel promoting the iPhone 5 camera

Apple has recently uploaded a new ad to its YouTube channel called "Photos Every Day," which is designed to show-off the capabilities of the iPhone 5's camera.

Apple has averted from its usual advertising tactics; rather than just displaying the iPhone 5's features with a white backdrop, the company has included people using the phone this time.

Within the ad, the iPhone 5 is used to take photos whilst on a run, on the beach, skateboarding, and it is also made to capture images of plants, snow, clubbing, and jellyfish.

The advert also exhibits the iPhone 5's panorama feature, across a range of different backgrounds; the city, the mountainside, a forest and the sea. The panorama feature lets you shoot up to 240 degrees, with the gyroscope, A6 chip and Camera app working together to create a seamless shot.

Apple's previous campaign employed a series of words appearing across the screen to demonstrate a variety of different iOS apps. However, 'Photos Every Day' does not display any specs, features, or apps concerning the iPhone 5. Only photos taken from around the world. The ad ends with the statement: "Everyday more photos are taken with the iPhone than any other camera."

The statement is likely referring to statistics from Flickr, which reveals the iPhone 5 to be the most popular camera used on the website, with over 47,000 uploads from nearly 4,000 users in one day only.

The iPhone 5's 8MP iSight camera uses HDR for better colour and tone, as well as reduced blur. The Camera app also lets you edit your photos, removing red-eye, cropping, rotating and enhancing.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
