Top 3 iPhone photo apps

Posted In iOS devices, Technology Reviews - By Jack on Friday, October 11th, 2013 With 1 Comment

The first iPhone was released 2007 with its tiny 2 MP camera. Since then we have seen this device developing gradually from what could be termed as a ‘hobby cam’ to the present iPhone 5’s astonishing 8 megapixel camera that is able of taking awesome shots. However it is not just the cam which has improved over years and the variety and quality of the iPhone camera apps available on Apple’s Application Store.

1. Pure Shot

This amazing app created by Michael Hardaker, the man behind another outstanding app loved by pro iPhoneographers which is called 645 Pro. Just like 645 PRO it allows you to save your photos in a draw TIFF format which makes much better quality results than the standard JPEG, which Apple’s Cam App uses. Colors are richer and there is a better dynamic range and of course much less compression artifacts. And also the interface is really simple and nice without cluttered Feeling Even though all the features are close at hand. 

Also it allows for manual focus, White balance, lock exposure and a choice between standard position able spot-metering and Multi-zone. This jaw dropping app also gives you GPS readouts, real-time ISO and shutter speed and a choice of 4 real time histogram options. At only a cheap rate of $1.99 this app is good value and no doubt essential if you want the best image on your iPhone.

Its pros include easy to use, amazing manual control and a great quality draw TIFF format. Saying about the cons, we are still trying to find one.

2. Camera +

It has perfect manual controls for taking the shots and powerful effects and editing options to edit the picture giving you a great end to end result.  It’s not like the Apple’s default camera app. Here you can adjust focus and exposure separately in Camera + for much greater control. The iPhone’s LED flash can also be used as a continuous flash for low light emergencies. Even it comes with a much effective built in stabilizers which reduce blurry shots and a burst mode to help you create multiple shots in an eyes blink and timer.

The manual exposure is amazingly responsive.  It has appreciable sharing options. It even comes with a cheap rate of $0.99. But it also has some drawbacks such as absence of DRAW TIFF mode, no histogram, no focus, no manual white balance and exposure lock.

3. Magic Shutter

If you are interested in long exposures and light brush art photography this app is a must for you. Magic Shutter permits you to adjust the shutter speed to one, two, four, eight, fifteen, thirty, sixty seconds or unlimited as well as including a smart exposure mode to make sure your photo’s aren’t overexposed.

Its instant exposure feature permits you to visualize in real time the final results so you can stop as soon as you have the best image. It also has a focus lock and exposure which is essential and also permits post processing in app before the sharing process.

Its pros include great interface, live preview and manual lock. Saying about the cons it requires a tripod, sharing is limited to email, Facebook and camera roll. It has no built in help and is also pretty expensive.
