MacVoices #12113: Mike Hardaker Talks About 645 Pro, A Pro-Level iPhone Camera App
There are plenty of iPhone camera apps out there, but 645 Pro is different. Mike Hardaker of Jag.gr discusses how their approach focuses on getting a better picture at creation rather than relying on post-processing. Leveraging the lessons learned by manufacturers of physical cameras, 645 Pro delivers more of a pro-camera interface, but that’s not all. With an option to save photos in dRAW—TIFF files and MAX-quality JPEGs, your photos will look better than ever before because of the lack of compression. Mike talks about how they were the first to offer that feature, his approach to crafting 645 Pro, and more.

Originally from the UK, although he hasn’t lived there since 1990, Mike Hardaker has spent most of his working life either in the media or in the technology business. Or, most frequently, some combination of the two. He trained as an IBM Systems Engineer, but pretty soon after that was working as a journalist. Over time he wrote half a dozen books, and became a magazine editor and publisher. In 2000, he co-founded the online media business AngloINFO with his wife, Wendy Wilson. He still sits on AngloINFO’s board, but stepped back from any hands-on involvement in 2010. Since that time, he’s been focused on his new startup Jag.gr. Jag.gr produces apps designed to help people take better photographs with their iPhones. You can follow them on Twitter or friend them on Facebook.
