Boinx develops PhotoBox for the iPad

updated 01:15 am EDT, Fri October 29, 2010

Quick analysis in the field for photos

Boinx Software have released a free iPad app called PhotoBox to allow digital photographers to quickly see on-the-spot analysis of their photos on the large iPad screen, providing technical details of exposure, focus, color and composition. It uses the iPad Camera Connection Kit (purchased separately) to quickly download and display photographs with or without analysis, and can later be used to display photos on computers and other devices that can accept VGA input.

The company is employing an unusual model for the app -- delivering the first version free of charge so that they can solicit feedback on additional features needed to turn the program into, in their words, "your personal on-set digital photography assistant." As the program receives feedback and matures, Boinx will charge a yet-to-be-determined price for version 2.0.

The first version already provides photographers with a histogram, close-up, gallery and over/under-exposure warnings. While the application currently does not have any correction tools, it does output through the iPad's VGA cable to allow the photos to be displayed on even larger screens.

The app is available now on the App Store and currently requires iOS 3.2 or later (Boinx cautions that future versions will be dependent on iOS 4 or later).
