  • Take better DSLR shots using... your smartphone?

    Photos are meant to be viewed large. Yet when taking a shot--that crucial moment when we should be most discerning--we usually rely on the camera's small LCD to preview the image. The traditional solution has been to "tether" the camera to a computer, so you can view shots on a large screen as they're captured, or even control the camera's settings and trigger the shutter remotely. That approach lets you correct the scene or settings and reshoot immediately if anything looks amiss.
