Wednesday we presented 500px iPhone app to the world and held a live Q&A the same day with a panel of 500px team members who worked on the app. We were broadcasting live to answer your questions about the new app. At the hangout we had Eric Akaoka, Adam Shutsa, Ash Furrow and Paddy O’Brien to answer your questions, which they received via Twitter, Facebook, G+ and comments on YouTube.
Tune in to the recorded episode of the hangout and find out answers to questions like: “What was the thinking behind design?”, “What about ISO500?”, “Challenges when iPhone 5 came out?”, “What makes this app different from the rest?”, “Did you use open source code?”, “Why is there no uploading?” etc.
To download the iPhone app visit iTunes store or our iPhone app page. Thank you for making 500px the #3 free photo app in the App Store, right after YouTube and Instagram. If you like the app, please visit the iTunes page to leave a review and help spread the word.

It’s great to watch videos made by photographers as you can witness photographs literally come to life. Today we’d like to share with you a story behind a short film “I Soar”, inspired and based on a poem by Diane Ward. “I Soar” is a collaborative art project by photographer Steven Dempsey and composer Glenn Scott Lacey. Their collaboration resulted in a masterfully assembled creation — from words to sound to visual medium.
This entire short film was shot with Canon 5D mark II camera. Thanks to Steven Dempsey for sharing this beautiful story and video with us. You can add Steve to friends, follow his photographs and get in touch by visiting his 500px page.
We believe that photographers make great videographers. Last time we shared with you “Hyperlife” by Guille Ibanez, a time-lapse capturing the hustle&bustle of Hong Kong. Do you have a video that you’d like to share or you’re in a process of planning a shoot? Let us know, email email@example.com. We’re always open to your ideas and collaborations, and would love to feature you on our blog.
