What's New

Release 3.10 introduces a range of performance enhancements along with minor bug-fixes.

App Description

Take high-quality, square photographs with 6x6. It's a reminder of the old 6cm (or 2¼-inch)-square medium format that was so popular with both amateurs and professionals using 120, 220 and 620 roll film. Because it just looks so good.

FEATURES
✓ 1:1 image ratio (yes, square)
✓ Blistering performance
✓ Optional Real-time Preview
✓ Full EXIF support – including location-tagging
✓ Manual focus and exposure control
✓ What you see is what you capture
✓ Framing grids help keep your verticals and horizontals where they should be
✓ "Split-image" shows where the middle of your composition is, and even whether it's level
✓ Fixed focal length lens (no digital “zoom” making your photographs fuzzier)
✓ Saves straight to the Camera Roll
✓ Manual flash control - it's either on or off
✓ Color or B&W
✓ Elegant user interface
✓ View and share your images—e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Instagram and other apps

ADVANCED SETTINGS
✓ Opt-in to Real-time Preview - see exactly (from any of sixteen Color or B&W Modes) what you will take, in the viewfinder!
✓ Picture Review lets you see your photographs on screen straight after you've taken them (tap to clear)
✓ Select B&W Mode from eight dramatic choices
✓ Select Color Mode from eight sumptuous choices
✓ Print Border adds a crisp white or black border to your photographs, or a choice of film and hand-printed effects
✓ Control sounds: audio feedback when you click a switch or press a button
✓ A retro flashgun sound, for some serious nostalgia
✓ Save as HI-Quality JPEG, MAX-Quality JPEG (no visible compression artefacts) or TIFF
✓ For the true obsessive, 6x6-Flex (TLR) Mode replicates the effect of the standard waist-level viewfinder on a twin-lens reflex camera, with a mirrored preview!

MANUAL FOCUS/EXPOSURE CONTROL
✓ Tap to set the focus/exposure point-of-interest
✓ Tap-hold to set an independent exposure point-of-interest (a single tap now manages focus alone)
✓ Swipe the display to lock the focus and exposure
✓ Double-tap to return to Autofocus/Autoexposure

If you find other camera apps over-fussy (and their photographs annoyingly oblong) then 6x6 is the app for you. It stays out of your way as you focus on the most important aspect of photography: getting the right composition in the frame.
