iPhone volume/shutter button

Use Your iPhone’s Headset to Take Pictures From Afar

iOS 5 brought us the ability to use the “up” volume button on an iPhone to take a picture but I just read in lifehacker that you can use the iPhone’s earbud remote volume control to do the same thing. This will allow the propping up of the iPhone and hands-free tripping of the shutter button, essentially a cable release.

I don’t use those earbuds (can’t fit in my ears) but I think I might start carrying them now.

Museo Reina Sofía

Museo Reina Sofía from Juan Rayos on Vimeo.

Juan Rayos has made a wonderful introduction to Spain’s national art museum in Madrid. Both the video and background music are excellent. Beautifully produced. Watch full screen, very well worth it. Chock full of visual ideas and visual design beauty.

This video introduces Museo Reina Sofía, a expanded museum with various sites and locations (Sabatini Building, Nouvel Building, Palacio de Cristal and Palacio de Velázquez), experiences and audiences. Along with this idea of campus, the collection, exhibitions and public programs are shown as a new form of mediation between the audience and the Museum’s program.

PS: Now I know where Picasso’s Guernica ended up.
