It there some way of using the camera in the iPhone as a viewer? Plug in the camera format (4x5, 6x12) and len size.
There's an App for that too. I've been using "Viewfinder Pro" for a while and it's great. The price is a little steep ($14.99 US) but I can keep presets for up to four different formats and several focal lengths for each format. It's a really nice alternative to a viewing card.
Sounds really cool However here in many parts of Nevada and Arizona, I have found that only Verizon or one of Verizon's subs can give me signal access...I've heard that Verizon is in the near future for the I Phone?
I'm thinking of getting the new iPhone once they've worked out the kinks, but meanwhile I use an iPod Touch and Verizon mi-fi, which gives me wi-fi anywhere I can get Verizon, and I can run Skype on it, which isn't quite as functional as a cellphone, but I can get messages and make calls from it, and I can receive calls when Skype is running.
I plan to get this app, but I'm going to buy an unlocked iPhone 4 as soon as Apple deems Canadians worthy ("Coming Soon") as of this morning. No point putting it on my iPhone 3G if that phone is going to be semi-retired soon.
Sounds like good stuff! Hopefully I'll know first-hand by Christmas.

A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.
Just because we shoot old school traditional photography does not state we have to live like its 1860 !!
Not only we don't HAVE to, but CAN'T - not completely. Although 1860 wasn't a particularly good year, we can choose the "good stuff" and shy away from the "Do it all for you so you don't have to LEARN" mind numbers ("numb" - as in "DOH!").
Some of us still work in charcoal, from time to time, when we can find empty cave walls.
truly amazing things they do these days hey, but i really prefer to keep my cheap moleskine and my basic nokia (you can use it like a phone and even send sms┤s) and save the money i would use to buy that i phone and get me a new lens, it does more for my photography, maybe a 65mm, or even a wooden camera, or even a 40 mm for my hasselblad, or something else really...
