1080pHD video, 8megapixel camera – the iphone4s is not just the best camera I always have with me – its the best camera I own.
The larger aperture and additional improvements such as “auto white balance, advanced color accuracy, and reduced motion blur” according to www.apple.com will greatly improve the ease of photography from the interior of homes. The main problem inside homes with the previous model (iphone4) had been lack of light. Apple claims to have remedied the low light level issues with a combination of software and hardware. Better is moving in the right direction.
The low level light update and improved lens is fantastic news for EasyVT fans. iphone4s will only improve the online content quality.
On a personal note – I grew up in a Hewlett Packard house. In the early 80′s we had huge printers, computers and hardware fresh from research and development – My father very much was a part of the HP Way. We always had a hushed respect for Steve Jobs and the apple brand. Innovation, ease of use and affordability are key in my business as well. While I don’t work for apple, Im a huge advocate of the products, services and culture they currently produce.
Steve Jobs passing is a great loss for the world.
iPad 2 is better, is built for the Realtor and it will be here on March 11th.
According to apple the new ipad2 is “thinner, lighter and faster” thanks in part to a dual-core A5 chip and a new 10 hour battery.
For real estate folks – the big winner here is the camera. (In fact it has two cameras.) The camera makes this device an all in one tool for selling and buying real estate. The main camera is HD! no problems showing detail with this lens. Plus Ipad2 has a huge built in flash (read: larger than the iPhone 4 flash, that works for lighting up small baskets of fruit.)
Now realtors can show a listing presentation and use products like the docusign app to go to paperless transaction management, stand up and photograph the listing with the iPad’s HD camera using the EasyVT (easy virtual tour) app to photograph and automatically push the content to your favorite virtual tour company. Then use tools like the zillow app and realtor.com to show off (sell) your listing to buyers.
EasyVT is already built to directly integrate with iPad 2, however, I dont have one yet – I cant wait to get my hands on one.
iPad two is the first all in one tool for Realtors. Tools like the iPad2 apps above will further improve the online listing quality and speed. I’m vastly understating it when I say: This is a big deal.

Yesterday, I drove over to an active real estate listing, a model home that was nicely decorated. I didn’t move any furniture to stage – just casually snapped about 15 photos with my iphone 4 and the HDR setting on. I am in no way a professional photographer, but this app is built for the rest of us.
A few blocks away, I reviewed the iphone property photos at a coffee shop, deleting those photos I didn’t like. This took about 2 min.
With the Real Estate app EasyVT open, I selected my favorite 9 photos and hit send. Before I had finished my coffee, I had an email from EasyVT with a link to my new YouTube virtual tour video.
Easy Virtual Tours is Easy to use, saves time and is Free in the app store.
