What's New

What’s new in Camera+ 8.0.2

A short tale of Sibling Rivalry…

There was once a young whippersnapper. His name was 6 Plus. When he was born, he got all the attention. Then around a year later, his parents gave birth to his brother, who was given the name 6S Plus. Sadly, most of the attention given to 6 Plus started to shift over to 6S Plus. This made 6 Plus very angry and petulant and made him act out in ways somewhat unbecoming of a young lad… like crashing when using Camera+ 8. Because sometimes even negative attention is better than no attention at all. But Camera+ didn’t like all the negative attention that was bestowed upon itself… in the form of 1-star reviews. So Camera+ had a little chat with 6 Plus and helped it work out its grievances. And everyone lived happily ever after in a perfect 5-star world!


What’s new in Camera+ 8

Slow Shutter
By far, the biggest addition to Camera+ 8 is an innovative slow shutter feature. When you’re shooting in the manual modes, you can now have effective shutter speeds as long as 30 seconds. So now you’ll be able to do things like take those kinds of amazing, misty, creamy waterfall photos that you see in magazines. And you’ll be able to do some creative night photography. It opens your iPhone photography up to so many new possibilities that are only limited to whatever your imagination can conjure up.

Ultra-low ISO
Working hand-in-hand with the new extended range of shutter speeds is an extended range of effective ISO values. With this range, you’ll be able to get down to unbelievably low apparent ISO values to make it possible to take long exposure photos without having to resort to using things like ND filters to prevent your photos from blowing out. And throughout the extended shutter speed / ISO range, the preview you see in your viewfinder is a very good indicator of what you’ll be capturing as far as exposure goes, so there’s little to no guesswork when you’re doing long exposure photography… not even the most expensive DSLR cameras can make that claim.

Please note that these new slow shutter / low ISO features aren’t available on the various flavors of iPhone 5.

New Import Options
We’ve added a couple of import options to help you get your latest photos from your Photo Library and into your Lightbox. Now you can easily import the last photo you shot… and you can even import your whole last moment with just a couple of taps.

A new share thingy
When you have a share sheet open in an app, those square, rounded-cornered, monochromatic icons in the bottom row are called Action Extensions. The nomenclature might leave a bit to be desired but it’s hard to debate the usefulness of these items. And on that note, we’ve added a Camera+ Action Extension so that you can now easily send photos to your Lightbox right from the share sheet of most apps.

Notification Center Widget Import Option
There’s a new option for the Notification Center Widget that enables you to quickly import photos from your Photo Library to your Lightbox.

Bug Fixes
As always, with new features inevitably come new bugs. And with new releases, we always do our best to squarsch as many known bugs as we can. In this release, many of the lifeless arthropodæ can be found in the vicinity of the Apple Watch.

What’s New
And finally, there’s a new “What’s New” section in the menu to make it easy for you to see, um… what’s new. You know… this thing that you’re actually reading right now. We would’ve inserted a screenshot here to show it, but the warranty on your iPhone doesn’t cover the damages that’d be caused by the black hole created by doing so.

Touch Exposure & Focus
Set exposure separately from focus. You can now easily control how light or dark your shots come out.

Shooting Modes
Use the Stabilizer to steady your iPhone and get the sharpest photos you can. There are countless uses for the Timer including taking the highest-quailty self-portraits. Capture all the action by using Burst to take rapid streams of shots.

Digital Zoom
Up to 6× zoom with advanced digital processing provides you with quality that simply blows away the competition.

Front Flash
How many times have you wanted to take a pic of yourself in a dark room but couldn’t. Well, now you can!

Horizon Level
Use the Horizon Level to eliminate taking crooked shots.

Clarity is one of the biggest breakthroughs to happen to image processing in a long time. Clarity analyzes your photos and makes several intelligent adjustments that magically bring out details and breathe life into dull photos. With Clarity, you’ll stop throwing out bad photos… you’ll be amazed to see what it can do to photos that you’d typically consider unusable, like shots that came out too dark.

Scene Modes
Most modern digital cameras all have scene modes to help you get the best photos for your particular situation. With Camera+, you get to choose from several scene modes including Food, Sunset, Night, Portrait, Beach, and many more.

Professional photographer, Lisa Bettany created a slew of stunningly beautiful effects. Make your photos shimmer with “HDR”… get down and dirty with “Grunge”… fill your pics with emotion and despair with “So Emo”. And this is just the tip of the iceberg… there are dozens of 1-touch effects for you to experiment with.

All the pics you take in Camera+ go in the innovative Lightbox where you can quickly and easily skim through them and get rid of bad shots. You save only the photos you’re satisfied with so that your camera roll stays neat and clean.

Whether you want to show your results to your friends and family or the whole world, Camera+ has got you covered. Proudly share your photos on Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr. Or go the more personal route and email or message them from right within the app.

iCloud Lightbox sync
Automatically sync your Camera+ photos between all of your devices. Shoot all day on your iPhone… and then edit at night on your iPad.

If you didn’t line-up your shot perfectly when you took it, you can easily fix that with Camera+. And when you want to get a bit creative, we setup a bunch of popular crop sizes for you. With a single tap, you can make your pics square, 4×6, 8×10, and more.

With Camera+ you get several great border designs, from simple black and white borders to more gritty designs, you’ll be able to add wonderful finishing touches.

Have some fun with your photos by putting captions on them. It’s a great way to really personalize your favorite shots.
