Camera+ for iPad – My replacement for the built-in camera app

I bought Camera+ several months ago, November 2012 actually, and I’ve been using it as my main camera tool every since. It offers a whole host of features I really like such as the camera level, the “rule of thirds” grid and the image stabilizer button. They really make it easier to get a clean and level shot. The other part I like is the camera roll. You get a nice thumbnail view, “lightbox”of your images so you can see which ones you want to work on. From there you can crop, rotate, adjust and add borders.

The Scenes function adds some nice features such as Backlit, Flash, Sunset, Beach, etc, that change the warmth and saturation of the image. These are very similar to what you see in most Point and Shoot camera. A picture of a bottle of The Macallan 12 was warmed up nicely by the “Food” preset.

The Adjust option lets you add White Balance, Straighten an image or Flip it as well as add a Vignette for artistic effect or adjust the overall tone.

FX Effects allows color saturation presets like Sepia, Vibrant, Black and White, etc. Again, these are similar to the options you see in most Point and Shoot cameras today and it can make for some interesting images. At the very least it can give your image a dash of flair before you post it.

Any of the edits can be undone and none of them are committed until you actually save the image. You can tinker to your heart’s content without damaging the original. And once done, the image is saved to the Camera Roll so you can get to it from dozens of other applications or post it online. I personally use AirDisk Pro or Posts to send it off as a blog post.

I really like Camera+ and although I mainly use the Crop and Rotate functions, I have made a few adjustments using the Scenes functions and may have dabbled with some of the other features just to get an unusual effect. The Scenes function along can really enhance an image.

Camera+ is still just a mere $0.99 and absolutely worth it. If you take more than a handful of pictures, especially when you can work on those images with the larger screen of the iPad, it’s definitely worth getting. Overall a very good app. And $0.99? Wow.
