The iPhone for war photographers
For many journalists, the iPhone has become a standard part of the toolset. But it’s also being tested to the limit by war reporters.
A couple of interesting experiments from Afghanistan caught my eye this morning documenting ventures in the photographic potential of the iPhone.
First, this piece in The Guardian highlighting its use by Teru Kuwayama and Balazs Gardi.

They were using the Hipstamatic app enabling users to take digital "Polaroids".
In May, Yon said he was "studying up" on the iPhone app which claims to help photographers capture the world in 3D.
