iPhone Photo App Review - Camera+

Publisher : Tap Tap Tap                                Cost : $1.99

For my inaugural review I'll start off with my #1 iPhone app, Camera+.  This is the app which led me to fall in love with the iPhone's camera and I use it exclusively to take every photo now!  

The one thing I didn't like about the iPhone's standard camera was that the exposure was set from the same spot as the focus.  Camera+, in all its glory, addresses this issue by allowing the user to set the exposure on a separate spot by placing a second finger on the screen after setting the focus point - pure genius!!  On the camera side of things it also sports a great zoom, much better then any other app I've tried.  The app also offers image stabilization, a timer and a burst mode!

Once a photo has been taken much can be done with the apps robust editing features.  It offers a wide range of white balance settings as well as the ability rotate and flip the image and of course cropping.  

Now for the fun stuff - the effects options!  To start, you have three sections of effects, Colour, Retro and Special.  In these sections you'll find effects like Vibrancy, So Emo, Lomographic, Antique, Cross Process and even HDR!  Another brilliant touch they've added is a slider bar for every effect so you can control the strength of the adjustment.  There is also a set of effects called I Heart Analog that can be purchased in the app for an additional $0.99.  The last step post-processing is the ability to add one of many borders if one so choses.

Once your masterpiece is done, what can you do with it!?  Share it of course!  Luckily the app addresses this as well by allowing one to instantly upload their photo to various social networks including Facebook, Flickr and Twitter!  Once you've registered your login information with the app sharing component is literally become as easy as just pushing a button and off it goes, fast and easy!

As a sidenote, the app was developed in partnership with fellow Canadian photographer Lisa Bettany!  Way to go Lisa and congrats on the huge succes of the app, well deserved!  Here's a link to the info page for the app. Warning - do not mistake this app with the one titled "Camera Plus," they are not the same. :)
