Whether you’re a seasoned photographer or someone who’s barely touched a camera, Camera+ 2 will make you love taking photos.
Camera+ 2 is the best and most powerful camera app available. A complete rewrite of the original Camera+ that sold over 14 million copies, Camera+ 2 is better, faster and stronger than ever.
A lot of things have happened in the 8 years since we first released the original Camera+. iPhone cameras have improved dramatically - not only in terms of sheer optical quality, but also in the array of technical and creative tools they provide. Manual controls, RAW capture, depth editing are a few of the capabilities whose presence in a mobile phone was unthinkable just a couple of years ago.
We decided it was time to rebuild Camera+ to prepare for the next 10 years of mobile photography. We rewrote everything from scratch to create a solid and modern foundation on which to incorporate the advances we'll see coming with every new iPhone release. The result of that effort is Camera+ 2, and we are incredibly proud of it. It preserves the personality of the classic app you love, and it will enable us to continue in our mission to provide you with the best and easiest to use tools to express your creativity and personality. We hope you like using Camera+ 2 as much as we loved creating it.
Here are some of the best features in Camera+ 2.
Camera+ 2 supports and adapts to iPhone and iPad. Use the same shooting and editing tools consistently across all your devices, and take advantage of multitasking in iPad. All features, filters and tools are included in your purchase for all platforms - no in-app purchases required.
Photographers that need absolute control over their shots can use Camera+ 2’s advanced manual controls to select the precise settings they need. Shutter speed, ISO and White Balance can be selected using on-screen wheels and controls. In dual-lens devices, you can easily select Wide or Tele depending on your needs. The good thing about our manual controls is that they don't have to be present on-screen if you don't need them, so casual photographers are equally welcome.
RAW Capture and Editing
Enable RAW capture to get the exact image captured by the sensor at its full precision, to get the maximum flexibility while editing. Use our built-in RAW Editor to develop RAW images, or edit them on your computer with the tools you already use.
Depth Capture and Editing
In compatible devices (those with dual cameras, currently the iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone X), a Depth-capture mode is available. When you enable depth capture in Camera+ 2, the depth information is saved alongside the image, and the adjustments in The Lab section of the editor can be selectively applied to distant or close subjects.
Use the Smile mode to allow Camera+ 2 to detect smiles and shoot for you, or the Stabilizer mode to shoot only when your iPhone is steady enough to produce a sharp picture. The Slow Shutter mode provides you with the means to take long exposures, even in daylight. Burst and Timer modes complete our comprehensive offering of shooting modes for specialized purposes.
Best Photo Library Integration
Camera+ 2 editing tools can now be easily used on all the photos in your Photo Library. Switch between the Photo Library and the Lightbox by simply tapping a button. Or use drag and drop gestures on the iPad to copy or share photos. Files and iTunes integration are also available, so you can easily transfer pictures to your computer or other apps.
Faster and More Efficient
All-new editing tools rewritten from scratch take full advantage of the newest image processing technologies of iOS 11. We could discuss this at length but we think it suffices to say that we met our goal to make editing, sharing and exporting faster than ever.
What's new in v3.5.5
In version 3.5.5 we have fixed an iPad photo info layout issue and make some other minor tweaks.
In version 3.5 we introduced two new presets: Auto and Manual.
Auto mode is a nod to all of you out there who just want the best photo they can take, as quickly as possible, with little fuss. Sometimes it’s easy to miss that special moment when you’re fiddling with a control wheel and this mode strips away all of the distractions, letting you focus on the important thing, your subject. In Auto mode you won’t find buttons to expand into more controls, simply the EV wheel and if you choose to use them touch focus and exposure. Best of all, we use all of the cameras so you don’t have to. When you press the shutter button in Auto mode, we intelligently looks at each camera using criteria like light and zoom levels, and instantly choose the best one for the job.
Manual mode is more or less what we used to call “No Preset”, or the default mode of Camera+ 2. One notable change is that the camera switcher has been moved from inside the preview window to the bottom bar area just to the right of White Balance. All of the manual controls are shown by default in this mode making the option to do so in the menu obsolete. For our more advanced users this just means one less setting to worry about, and fewer taps to get to the perfect shot.
We’ve added a few minor changes and enhancements as well:
In all modes we’ve added more refined support for the third lens in the iPhone 11 Pro. We’ve stepped up our camera switcher game so that you can get to the lens you want in the least number of taps possible.
When you’re browsing your Photo Library from inside Camera+ 2 you can now see at a glance which photos contain depth data whether they’ve been captured in Camera+ 2 or not via the Portrait badge.
And lastly, we’ve squooshed a number of minor bugs too numerous to list here.
As always thanks for your continued support and appreciation. If you’re experiencing any problems with this (or any other update) please don’t hesitate to send us a note via the bug reporter in the menu.
