Argentum Camera is a Red Dot Award winning black & white camera app developed with street photographers in mind. It allows you to shoot high-quality black & white images without complicated adjustments or the need for post-processing.
Argentum Camera offers six filters, each aesthetically inspired by the classics of black & white photography, such as Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Irving Penn, Garry Winogrand, Yousuf Karsh and Dorothea Lange.
Want to bring your black & white photos to life? Try shooting Live Photos with Argentum (feature only available to those with iPhones 6S or higher).
All images (Live Photos and stills) are processed in real-time, so you can see an Ansel Adams inspired landscape treatment or Irving Penn inspired portrait tones right on your screen while you're still composing your shot.
Argentum Camera's interface is simple, but functional, a balance between the modern sleekness and the classical forms. It is hardly noticeable and allows you to focus fully on composing the shot.
It is also the first camera interface that adapts to the shift in handling. In the landscape mode the shutter button slides to the end of the panel placing it right under your thumb.
Argentum Camera processes images in real-time. The image you see while composing your shot is exactly the result you’re going to get when you press the shutter button.
Two Additional Shooting Modes
Street shooting mode turns your whole screen into one large button. Tap it anywhere to take a shot. Double exposure mode lets you superimpose two different images in a single photo with real-time preview. Pro-tip: go for underexposure on both shots to compensate for exposing the sensor to light twice.
Bring your black & white images to life by turning the Live Photo mode on (available on iPhones 6S or higher).
This option lets you have a quick look at the photo you just took right after pressing the shutter button. No need to go all the way to the Gallery to check if you got the light or focus right.
Keep Original Photos
When this option is switched on original unprocessed photos will be stored in your Camera Roll.
JPEG, HEIC, TIFF and RAW
Save original and processed photos in JPEG, HEIC or TIFF. Additionally, save the original photo in RAW.
Adaptive Interface Layout
In the landscape mode the shutter button is shifted and placed right under your thumb.
Torch & Flash
In addition to the standard flash option, there is also a torch mode that provides continuous lighting for better control.
Tap and hold on the screen to lock focus and exposure while composing the shot.
Argentum Camera saves your location and the filter you used in the EXIF, so you can always keep track of your best photos.
