Ratings and Reviews
Best camera app for IPhone
Simple and clean interface with all needed features. Raw and highlighting objects in focus is really great. Big thanks to Halide team for this app. Totally worth the price.
I have only one feature request about Timer option. Can we have ability to turn off flash for counting? It’s really annoying for everyone around. I’m using 3 seconds timer every time I’m taking pictures for avoiding little shakes after tapping shutter button. I’m feels a little bit awkward because of this splashing thing for each photo. Please think about ability to turn off flash for timer. Thanks again for your very best camera app!
Awesome camera app but has some bugs
I ran into strange crashes when shooting in DEPTH mode - sometimes the application just crashes. Switching the DEPTH mode also behaves strangely - sometimes switching off the DEPTH switches to the front camera. It all happens on my iPhone XR with iOS 12.3.1.
Not very useful app
No way to guess exposure. What you see isn’t what you get. The app seems to borrow real time preview and saved jpeg from native camera app. But raw file can have completely different exposure, totally unpredictable.
No overexposure peaking. Little histogram is of little help.
No digital zoom. You can’t compose your shot properly. It could be lossless crop of course.
