Obscura 4 is a camera app packed full of features to help you take incredible photos. Obscura pairs a stunning design with intuitive controls that make taking photos a delight.
Over its 8 years on the App Store, Obscura has been much numerous times around the world, including as Editors’ Choice and App of the Day.
Obscura squeezes a bunch of powerful features into simple controls anyone can master. The interface balances aesthetics, ergonomics, and intuitiveness. You won’t want to use anything else. Controls can be reached with one thumb, and gestures and haptics combine to create a tactile experience that lets you stay focused on your subject.
Capture Modes & Formats
Obscura captures photos, videos, Live Photos, and portraits. Photos can captured in RAW, ProRAW, HEIC, and JPEG (on supported devices, see http://obscura.camera/compatibility).
Capture images in multiple different aspect ratios, or filters live in camera for a wide variety of styles.
Obscura gives you control over exposure, focus, white balance, ISO, shutter speed, and flash, with intuitive controls that make you feel in control of your device’s camera.
Obscura lets you display a grid, a spirit level, a histogram, focus peaking, a focus loupe, and exposure clipping highlights to help you understand every detail of what you’re shooting.
Obscura has its own interface for browsing, rating, editing, and sharing images, but it’s fully integrated with your system photo library, so images captured with Obscura are available everywhere.
Obscura is free to use, with an annual subscription for premium features. See http://obscura.camera/ultra for full details.

Ratings and Reviews
I have loved Obscura ever since it was as recommended to me ( Obscura 1).
Anything that elevates my very average ( but enthusiastic!) photography is a winner in my book, and Obscura definitely does that. I always brought a camera out with me to capture everything…. Long before cameras in phones were invented.
Obscura makes it look like I know what I’m doing, along with it’s cool (and warm) filters and effects, precision if you want it, and tons more.
It’s easy to use, play around and up your skills, and to get help if I need it.
Safe to say I love Obscura
