Camera Noir is the most powerful black & white photo editor in the App Store.

Built for professional photographers but easy enough for amateurs, it turns your photos into stunning black-and-white images.

With the simple user interface, you have full control over manual camera settings, such as ISO, aperture, and shutter speed. Or you can go fully automatic. If you spend a lot of time with Photoshop or Lightroom, then you’re going to freak out. You won’t believe how deep this photo editing app can go.

Classic film stock emulations, real 35mm film grain, and nuanced pro editing tools give you everything you need, plus capabilities missing from other apps:

_Live, Editable Histogram_
Camera Noir gives you unbelievably nuanced control as you adjust the contrast in your photos.

_Black-and-White Mix_
Change luminance for specific spectrum colors: red, orange, yellow, blue, aqua, and magenta.

_Clarity Slider_
Apply very fine contrast in certain parts of the image to bring out the richest details.

Has Potential

This app looks like is has great potential to create beautiful images, but the launch seems to be a bit buggy. I'm unable to import photos from my camera role, and when in the editing screen the app keeps crashing. I'm hoping these issues will be resolved in some updates, as otherwise it was a waste of money. Am looking forward to using once some of the bugs are resolved...

I was excited to hear about this app and made the mistake of buying it as soon as it was available.

On my iPhone 5s it is slow, buggy and non responsive.

The camera feature is lack luster and the manual edit controls sluggish and freeze or crash the app.

Maybe they rushed the release?

For now I'll stick to shooting with the wonderful Procam 3 and doing b/w edits in the free Snapseed app or the powerful Filterstorm Neue app.

UPDATE: Since its been a while since the release, I gave the app another try. There have been no updates since Dec. launch. If they mention it's only for model 6s or newer I missed it. They should be very clear about that. Do not buy if you don't have the latest iPhone.

Hold off on this purchase until they get a stable build. Avoid the hassle and save your money.

Wonderful app but

I used it constantly with no problems and loved it until I updated my iPhone to iOS 11.0.1. Then the app began to freeze when I wanted to save my image. FRUSTRATING! Please, please fix this bug!!!
