The screen is large enough that he can see well enough to actually frame and take pictures. And then he has them right there, on that same large screen, where he can browse through them any time he wants.
Put this way, it is the future. iOS has been lauded by both the techno-literate and the ignorant, because it made something difficult easier to do. In these terms, the iPad has made something nigh on impossible for some, into something they enjoy. That is a remarkable achievement. If it gives people joy and allows them to capture memories of their loved ones, I know I won’t complain.*
*what I would like to address is how easily those memories can be wiped away. Yes with data loss, but perhaps more worryingly, under the veil of safety provided by iCloud. I believe it’s far too difficult for a layman to understand what’s saved, and the lack of a “location” of that data only adds to the confusion.∴ February 5th 2014 — Tags : camera icloud ipad photography shawn blanc
