Intuitive UI
All features are easily discovered using an intuitive user experience

Zen Mode
Controls disappear, leaving a gorgeous full-frame image. Take the shot while focusing on composition and framing

Manual controls
Full, semi-automatic or manual control of shutter speed, ISO, white balance and focus. Slide up and down for exposure compensation

Great functionality and presets!

I was looking for an easy way to apply fuji film simulations and have loved using this app. I don’t know how accurate they are to the actual recipes but you get enough options to find a preset that you will like. It’s snappy and simple to use. I don’t have to agonize over changing the S Curve or percentages. This app intentionally keeps it simple so you can enjoy the moment. I also like that it’s a one-time payment. The developer takes a lot of pride in improving this app and he’s responsive to your questions and critiques. I use fujifilm proneg and Astoria the most and I love how it gives my iPhone photos a little bit of an analog feel.

Incredibly well made!

I found this app to be incredibly well made. It offers a great array of functions and is just what I was looking for. Can't wait to see where this app is headed! A must try for every fan of film emulations.
