Camera+ 2 version 1.5 is here!

We are really proud and excited about this release! In addition to adding support for iOS 12 and the new iPhone XS and XS Max devices, we have taken the opportunity to add a few new features that we hope our customers will find very convenient.

Siri shortcuts (iOS 12 only)

You can create Siri shortcuts for the actions you perform the most in Camera+ 2. For example, you can simply say "Hey Siri! Shoot selfie" instead of unlocking the device, launching the app, switching to the front-facing camera and tapping the button. It's way more fun and faster, especially when your phone is already at arm's length. It's also great when you don't want to touch the screen to avoid motion blur, such as when composing a slow shutter photo on a tripod.

You can configure Siri shortcuts for the following actions:

You can also use the iOS 12 Shortcuts app to combine these actions together and create voice commands that match your own personal workflow.

Compatible with iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max

Camera+ 2 is gorgeous in the new displays. All the advanced camera features you are used to (manual controls, RAW capture, dedicated shooting modes) work great in the new iPhones, and the extremely fast hardware make it a joy to use.

Focus peaking

Let Camera+ 2 estimate what subjects in your frame are in focus, and forget the guesswork. This is especially useful for photographers that like to use manual focus, but also in lighting situations where the image in your viewfinder is not clear or contrasty enough.

Focus peaking is available for both iOS 11 and iOS 12, and it's compatible with iPhone 6 or better.

Configure your preferred save-to album in your Photo Library

Camera+ 2 is greatly integrated with the photos you already have in your Photo Library, so many people choose to ignore the Lightbox and simply shoot to the Photo Library and edit from there. To give those users additional flexibility, you can now choose what album you want to save to when you are shooting with Camera+ 2. Some people will use a specific Camera+ album until they decide the keepers among all the photos they shot, others might want to create event-specific albums before they even start capturing. And if you use iCloud integration, you'll appreciate that this setting allows better management and classification so your photos appear in a reasonable place in other devices.

Copy, Paste and Undo edits in the Photo Library

Until now, those handy actions were only available for photos that you keep in your Lightbox. Starting with version 1.5, you can copy, paste or undo Camera+ 2 edits on photos that you already saved to your library. In order to copy and paste edits, you need to tap on the ellipsis icon (…) that appears in the Edits section of the detailed Info view.

Configure your Launch Settings

There is no right or wrong way to use Camera+. Some people prefer it for shooting, others like its editing capabilities, and some prefer to shoot with their iPhone and edit in their larger-screen iPad. We have added a startup preference so you can select what section of the app you want to see when the app first launches: Camera, Lightbox, Photo Library or simply reuse the last section you visited. This only applies to fresh launches of the app - going to the background and resuming will still display the same section you were using.

Improved Depth-mode viewfinder

Depth capture preview was a bit too flickery in some situations, especially if your subjects or phone were moving. We have now softed it down so the image in your viewfinder shows a nicer display of what your photo will look like when you shoot it.

Bug fixes and performance improvements

As it is our norm with every release, we have incorporated fixes for many of the issues our customers have reported. If you notice anything amiss, please do let us know and we'll work on it!

Announcing the all-new Camera+ 2

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.

Everything Included

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.

Manual Controls

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, 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.

Shooting Modes

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.
