A round-up of ProCamera 7 reviews from around the world

Image copyright Moblivious.com

Since we released of ProCamera 7 in September last year we’ve received a number of reviews of the app from all around the world.  We thought we’d consolidate a few of our favorite quotes and links into a short list.    Thank you to all the writers below for taking the time to review the app.

United States

“The app can take you from shooting your photo all the way to editing and sharing. Many apps do that, but the number of features and the slick execution of those features make ProCamera 7 a standout.”

Mel Martin - ProCamera 7 for iPhone offers some compelling new features for TUAW

“I’ve been thoroughly enjoying ProCamera 7 for the past few days for my iPhone photographs, and I believe that it’s worthy of being on most home screens for powerful photo capture. If you’re a serious iPhone photographer, and need an app that can do it all, then ProCamera 7 should be at the top of your list.”

Christine Chan – Get A Beautiful And Powerful Photo Capture And Editing Experience With ProCamera 7 for AppAdvice

United Kingdom

“Building on the good reputation of its predecessor, ProCamera 7 is clearly then another highly recommended photography app, which extends the functionality of your iPhone’s camera significantly with an impressive collection of quality features and stylish filters.”

Nick Spence –  ProCamera 7 for iPhone, iPad review – Feature packed follow up to well reviewed original for MacWorld UK

“And talking about getting the most out of our phone, the ProCamera 7 has been redesigned almost from the ground up. With the aim of making everything easier and faster, the user interface has been reworked. Most notably you can see the hint of the iOS7 flat design everywhere you look. Some of the advanced functionality has been move around to make it easily more accessible and less cluttered.”

Chris Prakoso – ProCamera 7 – The iPhone Camera App Every Passionate Mobile Photographer Must Have for Moblivious

Germany 

“So viele Funktionen, kann man eine solche App überhaupt noch bedienen, oder ist zuerst ein Studium der Anleitung erforderlich? Man kennt das ja von Digitalkameras: Nach dem Kauf kommt das Lesen. ProCamera 7 macht das anders, ein Umstand, an dem die jahrelange Weiterentwicklung der App positiv auffällt. Die Foto-App ist rund. Also richtig rund: Sauber im Design, der Vergleich mit einer Leica ist zwar gewagt und dennoch naheliegend, sowie schnell und intuitiv in der Handhabung. Mit nur wenigen Tasten kann die gesamte App bedient werden, wobei die Steuerelemente geschmackvoll platziert wirken.”

Boris – ProCamera im Test for AppGamers.de

Italy

Un’App matura che nella versione 7 non ha solamente messo il “vestito nuovo” ma introdotto nuove funzionalità e aperto nuove strade per interessanti aggiornamenti futuri.

Pierpaolo Pernici ProCamera 7 Review for Fotofonia

Ukraine

Потому как ProCamera функциональнее, красивее интерфейсом и логичнее. Несмотря на десятки настроек и опциональных возможностей, она не подавляет и не отвлекает от процесса съемки. Кроме того, снимает не только фото, но и видео, чего Camera+ не умеет. А я приветствую универсальность.

New ProCamera 7 Update: QR Code Scanner, EXIF Viewer and Auto Save are back!

Photo by Lydiashiningbrightly 

Happy holidays to all our ProCamera users! Our latest update sees the return of the QR Code Scanner, EXIF Viewer and manual saving.  We’ve also refined the focus and exposure (F/E) locking system, making it faster than ever. 

First up, the new QR Code Scanner has been redesigned for ProCamera 7.  It can be found under the Mode Switch (next to Night Mode). For enhanced security the ProCamera QR Code Scanner shows you the website URL so you can choose whether you want to visit the site.

The EXIF Viewer now gives you all your photo and video data in an easy to read interface.

A simple swipe to your left brings up the map, which shows you where the photo/video was taken, and amazingly, for photos, the direction you were facing. You can also keep the EXIF Viewer turned on while you swipe through your photos and video.

The Auto Save option is back in the Settings.  Now you can turn on the Auto Save to save straight to the Camera Roll/Lightbox or turn it off to preview each photograph before you choose to save or delete it.

For those using the advanced focus and exposure controls (F/E Lock), we’ve fine-tuned the code resulting in faster locking on release. We hope this gives the street and documentary shooters even more confidence when preparing for a shot.

We have also squashed a number of bugs and made detail improvements to the interface.

As always, if you have any questions about the update then please let us know on our support page.

ProCamera users we need your help to fix a bug! – Update #1

Magenta Bug Update #1 Monday 17 December 2013

Thank you to the users that have contacted us about the magenta bug.  Through extensive testing we’ve identified that the bug is related to the exposure lock control on the iPhone 5S.

We have also found that the bug occurs in other camera replacement apps that provide exposure lock capabilities. It is however more common in ProCamera as we provide an easily accessible and often repeated locking process.

We have reported the bug to Apple and will keep you updated on any progress.  In the meantime, if you are having ongoing issues with the magenta bug then please try disabling the F/E lock setting in the Control Panel.  You can still lock either the focus or exposure points separately through a long press.

We have also heard that some users have seen the bug disappear after rebooting their phone.

If you are still experiencing the bug with the F/E lock turned off then please contact our Support Team.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.


Hi everyone, we need your help to fix a rare bug that’s affecting a small number of iPhone 5s users. We’re calling it the Magenta Screen bug and it looks like the screencap above. Users have described it as a split, flickering image with different colors that can appear when changing the exposure on the Capture Screen.  This bug was also unfortunately experienced by a reviewer at CNET.

According to our reports this is an iPhone 5s bug only.  If you’ve seen this bug when you’ve been shooting then please contact us in the comments below or by providing details of the bug on our support page.

Thank you in advance from the ProCamera team.

ProCamera’s Analog pack brings classic film filters to your iPhone photographs

Have you tried the new Analog filter pack in ProCamera 7?

We worked hard on the latest pack. The seven custom-made filters apply subtle color shifts to your photos, replicating analog negative and slide films.  The filters support rather than overwhelm the frame. My personal favorite is Polachrome BM which adds a soft magenta wash to photos.  You can see all seven in the animation above.

This pack can be unlocked for free in exchange for a little bit of Facebook love.  For those that don’t have Facebook on their phones, clicking Like will unlock the pack automatically (instructions below).

Here’s a quick overview of how to find and unlock the Analog pack:

1. Select your photo from the Lightbox or Camera Roll.  Click on Edit (highlighted below) to open the ProFX filters.

2. Select the Analog pack from the filter pack scroll bar.  It’s the seventh one across (highlighted).

3. Pick a filter and then hit Save. This will bring up the notification box.  Click on Like to open Facebook and unlock the Analog Pack.

Have you used the Analog pack?  We’d love you to share your examples in the comments below.

A Kickstarter that turns your iPhone photographs into timeless prints

Our good friend Nate Park from iPhoneart.com has launched a new Kickstarter project that hopes to turn your iPhone photos into beautiful prints inspired by traditional Daguerreotype and Ambrotype processes.  

While many apps help create the feel of traditional analog processes and cameras. These new fine art pieces take it a step further by re-imagining traditional printing techniques to create stunning prints.

Here’s why this project is so important to Nate:

I miss the days where we cherished every print, especially those that mean the most to us.  Think about it, whether you are an artist, professional photographer or not, everyone has that one image, that frozen moment that we never forget.  A memory that transcends time.  I don’t want to lose that moment.  I want to hold on to it and connect with it in a real way.  I want that to be how we are remembered, and I want to share that for generations to come.

We feel the same way at ProCamera and hope that the mobile photography community gets behind this great project.  You can find out more about the project and the prints by watching the video below or head over to the Kickstarter Page.
