ProCamera Review: ProCamera noticeably faster

ProCamera app was recently reviewed by Cult of Mac contributor Giles Turnbull. You can read Turnbull’s full ProCamera review on Cult of Mac. Here (below) are a couple of snipets.

In comparison to rival app Camera+ … “ProCamera is – at least on my iPhone 4 – noticeably faster.”

“One thing ProCamera does well is separating the camera mode from the edit mode and the settings mode. Yes, ‘settings mode’. That’s what I call it, anyway. There are so many different settings and prefs (it is a Pro camera after all), that they are sensibly tucked out of sight.”

“What ProCamera offers is a decent degree of manual control – about as much as you’re going to get from an iPhone camera. You have command of the focus, exposure and, to some degree, white balance. All of these are done with simple on-screen buttons that don’t get in the way when composing a shot.”

“When you’re not in shooting mode, a camera icon always sits at the top-right corner, so you can jump back into it any time. The edit functions are nicely done, although tucked away. From shooting mode, you have to tap the ‘PRO’ button, then ‘Album & Studios’, then another icon with a paintbrush on it, then one of the options it calls up.”
