Camera Apps

Camera apps are designed to work with your images on capture. They may also provide you with extensive image adjustment features, but their primary purpose is to become the way that you shoot pictures on your iPhone.You can’t have a list of photography apps and not include Instagram. It’s fairly limited in the creative department as there is no exposure adjustment or tweaking of the creative filters it applies.

It’s my go-to app when I’m interested in sharing a quick moment with a bit of visual flair.The photo sharing network that it’s a part of is the biggest standout feature of Instagram and we haven’t seen how big it can really be just yet.

Camera+, $0.99
Another big name in camera replacement apps, Camera+ offers a widely varied set of enhancements to the feature set of the basic Camera app. Developer TapTapTap makes great products and they’re committed to delivering new features. A recent update brought the Clarity filter, a contrast and levels adjustment that greatly improves many casual iPhone pictures with a simple tap. Anti-shake features and the ability to set exposure and focus independently are also reasons to add this one to your kit.

Procamera, $2.99

Procamera is a nice alternative to Camera+. It’s a bit pricier but I like the immediacy of its interface a bit more than Camera+, which makes you wade through some attractive but unnecessary screens to get to some features. If you’re looking for an app to use when you’re whipping your phone out of your pocket to grab a shot quickly, Procamera has the edge. It also offers an unlinked focus/exposure system and White Balance locking to help you set your color tone.
