    This is a fairly common and neat function of modern smartphones.
    I use my Samsung Galaxy SII with light to snatch a quick examination of trannies. It is very, very bright. Works a treat using face/flashlight option of app (if that isn't enough, I also have flashing red and blue lights and a police siren on the Galaxy for when I'm really late to the lab!).

    Well, I'll be a monkeys uncle. I've been trying to figure out how to invert the video feed on the iPhone for weeks.
    Guess I should have just asked the nearest 20 year old.

    Jolly good show.

    Smartphones/tablets also work great as makeshift light tables. I use the "flashlight" type app that lights up the screen to view negs on.

    The possibilities are endless. How about a BW paper flasher or maybe you can snap a pic of your neg and you can figure out paper exposure time with burning and dodging previews?

    That's a really cool idea. People have been able to write light-meter apps for phones, so I'm sure it's within the realm of possibility, so long as you could figure out the calibration.

    Heaven forbid anyone would actually use their imagination anymore. Because we all know an IPhone is better than an imagination.

    Yeah, why even take pictures anymore? We can just imagine what will come out of the camera.

    When I went through the settings>accessibility>triple click home button I got "invert colors" rather than the white/black inversion. So my negs look like cyanotypes.

    if you use a b&w camera app with "invert colours", that works nicely.
