The mailman delivered several packages to me yesterday. I received a Shutterfly print order that included one 8×10 print and a few 4×6 prints. The 8×10 print is a picture of our granddaughters hugging each other. I took that picture in our living room but successfully made a selection of the girls and placed another background behind them. The 8×10 print, which is now hanging on our living room wall, is the picture of the girls with the brick wall behind them.
In addition to the Shutterfly order, I received two camera accessories: a Think Tank Photo battery holder for 8 AA batteries and a 16GB Toshiba FlashAir SD card.
The battery holder will contain the batteries better than the original packaging, which has been weakened by repeatedly opening and closing the plastic case.
The Olympus XZ-2 compact digital camera, which I purchased in November 2016, is capable of making a WIFI connection. The WIFI connection, however, is not built in as it is on some other cameras. The Toshiba FlashAir SD card, with its internal wireless LAN, provides the means to make a WIFI connection.
Following the Olympus XZ-2 instruction manual, I configured the FlashAir card to make a wireless connection with my iPhone.
I took a picture of the fog rolling in from the Conewango Creek.
I followed the Olympus XZ-2 instruction manual to connect the camera to my iPhone.
Once the connection between the camera and iPhone was established, I used the OLYMPUS Image Share app to import the fog picture onto my iPhone.
With OLYMPUS Image Share you can add Art Filters to imported photos.
Although I like both the original and edited fog pictures, I prefer the edited image. The edited fog picture gives off a feeling of eeriness, which I like.
After applying the art filter, I uploaded the edited fog picture to Facebook.
I purchased the Olympus XZ-2 camera as a replacement for my iPhone camera for taking everyday pictures (snapshots). I am quite pleased with the quality of my everyday pictures, since switching from the iPhone to the camera. What I have been missing, though, is the ability to share everyday pictures quickly on Facebook, as is possible with the iPhone. With the FlashAir card and OLYMPUS Image Share, I now have that capability.
