What’s New

Version 7.3.1

• Haptic Touch EXIF Preview (NEW)
So you just captured a shot, but you want to quickly double-check on the basic settings? Now you can when you Haptic Touch on the last photo button. You get a preview of the shot as usual, but now you get a strip at the bottom with the basic EXIF metadata information. This contains — focal length, aperture, ISO, exposure duration, and most importantly, the image format.

You can simply use Haptic Touch to preview this information and touch-up to make it go away. Also, this new EXIF strip fades away and gets out of the way after a few seconds.

This is also possible from the Camera M photo library grid screen with any photo or video. Please remember that this is just a summary, for a full representation of EXIF metadata, you can always open the photo and view our full representation of EXIF at any time.

Of course, with every new update or implementation of a function on Camera M, accessibility is a huge focus for us. So this new EXIF metadata strip is compatible with Dark and Light modes, Dynamic Type, Reduce Transparency and other accessibility settings on your device.

These small quality-of-life type of improvements are the implementations we are very proud of working on. We would love to hear your thoughts.

• Depth Blur Preview
We took out the depth blur preview a few years ago due to performance issues — now it is back! We worked on it to make it better, and to use less energy. You will see the ‘Depth Preview’ setting is back to opt-out from this function if needed.

• Bug Fixes
Fixed the issue where volume button actions would not work in certain landscape orientations. Made performance improvements to the Highlight & Shadow Alert filter and Focus Peaking filter.

Please check for more comprehensive details on this update.

We are truly a small, two-person, developer team without a huge advertising budget; Therefore, if you love Camera M, please free to spread the word and it would mean a lot to us!

We hope you capture incredible photos with Camera M!

A game-changer if you're serious about mobile photography

Before deciding to give Camera-M a try, I went ahead and purchased Filmic Firstlight. I will just say this: what a mistake. Camera-M has a superb set of tools for a serious photographer. Just by trying its white balance tool, I came to a quick realization of its power. I had assumed Firstlight had a similar white balance feature as its older brother (Filmic Pro). Boy was I wrong! If you understand the importance of being able to set a custom white balance in your images look no further, Camera-M’s white balance tool makes Filmic Pro’s feel like an amateur’s toy. I'm still to try several other of its features, but I'm definitely impressed so far. I'll come back once I have updates on that.
To the people behind this app: guys, you really need to have more videos available. One of the reasons I was doubtful to jump on board was the lack of more tutorials. Time to let the world know you're out there!

Mind-blowingly good

I have bought all of the camera apps. Seriously, almost all of them. And none have had everything I want—until now. A couple of features that are important to me: 1. The ability to control ISO with shutter speed in auto without significant lag...almost no other apps have this and it is the most important feature, in my opinion, for getting quality pictures on iPhone, especially with the wide angle. 2. Deep fusion. 3. An EXCELLENT and intuitive UI that is just a pleasure to use. I’m so glad I finally bit the bullet. If you are a serious photographer you will not be disappointed.

Best Camera App

I couldn’t decide between three camera apps (Camera-M, Halide, & Obscura 2) so rather than take someone else’s word for it I purchased all three to try.

After spending the last couple of days with them how Camera-M isn’t a top 10 app in Photo & Video I’ll never understand.. The only reason I can figure is hype for the others and lack of word of mouth so I’m here to do my part. If I had to rank them it would be:

#1 Camera-M
#2 Obscura 2
#3 Halide

This app just feels well designed, clean, and fun to use. I took my best shots and was most inspired while using it. Obscura 2 had a couple of features that I liked but overall just did not match Camera-M. Don’t even get me started on Halide.. I’ll just say for me it felt like I could have just taken the 5 bucks, set it on fire and got about the same satisfaction.

With so many choices out there and so little information to go on it’s hard to settle on one especially with a limited budget but I’m so glad I found this app!

Developer Response ,
