What’s New

Version 1.8

What's the worst thing that can happen to a beautiful photo of the sunset? Getting back to your editing station and realizing that the angle of the horizon is all skewed, and that to fix it, you would need to crop out important parts of your composition. With our newest release, we aim to eliminate that situation by adding an automatic, smart level.

Why a level? It may seem small, but it can make a huge difference in photos of subjects like landscapes and architecture. A slightly tilted photo may look simply "wrong" to the viewer, or in more extreme examples, unprofessional and messy. This small, simple tool will help you keep your vertical and horizontal lines perfectly straight, so that you have less editing to do in post.

To activate the level, simply tap on the settings button in the bottom right corner, then tap on the level button. That's it! The level will automatically activate when your device is almost - but not quite level. Additionally, for those of you who take a lot of top-down photos, when holding your device parallel to the floor or a table, you will see a little cross indicating orientation on both axes. Line up the white and yellow crosses for a perfect top down photo every time.

As always, if you have any questions, feedback, or extraordinary shots to share, feel free to reach out to us at or via the in-app bug reporter.

Amazing photography tool!

It’s SUPER easy to use! The manual shooting gives me full control of how I want to take my photos. I would recommend this to any beginner or professional photographer who wants the convenience of using their iPhone to take DSLR-quality photos!

Good start

This app is stable and offers the simple yet powerful interface I’ve come to expect from the Camera+ team, but there’s room to grow. I’ve been a passionate Camera+ fan for years now and I noticed recently that the app is now distributed by some other dev on the App Store. I don’t know the full story, but it seems like the OG team may have lost the app and Photon is them starting fresh. As it stands, it works, but it’s missing 3 key features that will keep me on Camera+ for now. Don’t get me wrong, I like that it’s stripped down (Camera+ can feel bloated) but I’d love to see the following features added down the road:

1. A dedicated Macro mode. If I switch to the .5 lens and play with focus, I can sort of do macro, but the perspective is still off and I’d love to see it “just work” like Camera+ and the stock Apple Camera app.
2. In-App photo library (lightbox) The lightbox is my favorite feature of Camera+. The ability to snap photos and review them before sending them off to iCloud is huge for me.
3. Integration with REC. I love REC. And I love how REC and Camera+ have buttons in the apps that let you switch between them. If Photon is the new hotness, I’d love to see that integration added.

I’ll keep it installed and follow updates as they come. I’m excited for what the future holds!

FOCUS and Lens Control lacking

I just spent a twilight even at park to test this particular APP out! In many ways I’m impressed with the minimalist yet simple tools and controls exist, but I’m kinda surprised that I have no control over the wide angle, standard and telephoto lens controls!! They already exist in my iOS (13 Pro Max) iPhone, so I’m puzzled at the lack of that very basic professional feature. Please get back with me, maybe a guarantee that you’ll have it NEXT update… I might just spend the $40

Developer Response ,

Hi there! The lens switcher is located in the bottom right corner of the viewfinder. For additional assistance with the controls, we've produced a handy manual that outlines where everything is and how it works. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask via the in-app bug reporter or You can find the manual here:
