IMPORTANT: Make sure you have launched Camera Prime AT LEAST once. This version of Camera Prime is now free, with an option to upgrade to the full version for a small fee. Since you have already downloaded Camera Prime, you WILL get the full version for free. However, if you do not launch Camera Prime at least once before updating, you will have to pay again. So please, just launch Camera Prime now to make sure you’ll get the the full version for free.
ALSO: A bug in iOS will cause Camera Prime to sometimes keep updating the location even in the background. To fix this, after installing 2.0 reset Location Warnings in the settings app, and then toggle Location Services for Camera Prime off then on. This is only needed to be done once.
We’re back, with loads of new features, better looks, and of course everyone’s favorite: bug fixes! Here’s the lowdown of what’s new in this huge update:
•Date & Time Stamp: The number one most requested feature, you can now overlay the date and time your pictures were taken onto your photos!
•Separate Focus and Exposure: Another highly requested feature, now you can make your photos look more professional by changing the focus and exposure areas separately!
•Front Camera Flash: When taking a photo with the front Camera, simply turn the flash on to illuminate the screen so you can take photos even when it’s pitch black!
•White Balance Control: For the photographers who want more out of their camera, you can switch between automatic and locked white balance.
•Custom Photo/Video Sizes: Wanting to save space on your device? You can now adjust what resolution photos and videos are taken at!

If you are using antishake, sound capture, or timer, and realize you just want to take the photo already, tap anywhere on the camera preview to instantly take the picture!
BURST MODE: Take three photos right after one another, so you don't have to worry about missing those quick moments!
ZOOM: Just like the default Camera app, zoom in up to 5x, and get the highest possible quality!
..and much much more!
