There's plenty of potential in this photography app but also a few rough edges.
What's NewNow includes "Info on half-press" as seen in the online video. Warning: this setting will generate a shutter sound on half-press, so turn the iPhone to silent to avoid hearing two shutter sounds for every photo. This sound is caused by Apple, so I can't prevent it. I have filed a bug with Apple.
This setting can be found in the Settings app. Also included is a switch to enable or disable Mattebox.net preset links.
App DescriptionIMPORTANT: Mattebox is the ONLY camera on the App Store that immediately displays ISO, shutter speed and focal distance. But it does NOT allow you to manually control them. This is currently impossible. You have indirect control via the locking system.
ALSO: Some folks are confused by the video. Mattebox does NOT currently allow live image adjustments in the camera viewfinder. However, that is coming in an update.
