New version fixes the picture orientation problem - mostly
Pictures appear correctly in the native iOS Photos app but you still have to rotate the phone to see them in the PureShot viewer. I guess that's the part about PureShot only being a landscape camera.
One other small issue I'm still having - the picture size ratio button in the bottom right is often hit and changed inadvertently. My pictures are coming out in all different sizes.
Otherwise a very good camera alternative.
Needs better Image Stabilization support
For the most part Pure Shot is a great app. It gives you control over exposure, white balance, focus, and file format (including RAW) that otherwise isn't available with the default Camera app.
But ... unless I'm missing something Pure Shot does not fully support the Image Stabilization built into more recent iPhones (at least the iPhone X). It appears that IS isn't used at all when saving in RAW mode, and even when saving in JPG mode low light shots show much more camera shake than the Camera app. As a result Pure Shot is of little use to me in lower light shots. I'll keep it for other difficult lighting and focus situations, but mediocre IS support keeps it from being a go-to app.
My 2nd favorite camera app
I'm using 645 Pro more these days for landscapes and sunsets
but I keep PureShot set on auto bracketing for quick shots. I have a custom white balance I can quickly access for indoor lighting; I don't know of any apps by other developers that give the options I have with PureShot and 645.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
