From the creators of the PhotoForge series comes a revolutionary new camera app. Beautifully designed and packed with powerful features, KitCam is a must-have for anyone who loves taking pictures or shooting video.

KitCam is a virtual camera kit that contains an amazing assortment of lenses, films, and frames, which can be used to create incredible effects and turn your photos and videos into stunning works of art.

Live exposure and white balance compensation allow manual control to dynamically change the exposure and temperature of your photo or video all in real time before your eyes.

Effortlessly take great photos under any condition in automatic mode or using the manual controls to adjust separate focus and exposure points.

Continuous shooting, even with live effects, means you never need to wait for a full resolution photo to develop before shooting again. Combine with high speed burst mode to ensure you never miss that perfect shot.

Using the powerful shot editor, you never have to fear experimentation. Your original photo is always safe; all filters and edits can be undone or changed at any time.

Auto archiving allows you to automatically back up every photo you take. Or manually share to any of your favorite social media destinations.
