After reviewing hundreds of camera apps it’s hard to not acquire burnt out. They are typically limitless variations on a style, all doing the work of shooting as well as editing OK, but not bringing much brand-new to the video game.

Camu (free) attacks the ground with a fresh approach and some new features. As an example, its filters could be used just before and also after you take an image or video. You swipe the screen to obtain a brand-new filter, and also you swipe up or to increase the effect or decrease it. The filters are never over the leading, as well as actually could make your image or video a lot more intriguing.

Talking of short movie, you hold the photo button down to shoot video clip, and also release when you are done. Filters work both just before (for a sneak peek) and after as it is with stills.

Real-time collage is an interesting idea. You divided the screen and also take a photo, then your following image takes place the various other side of the split. It’s faster than visiting another photo editor and making a collage after the truth. You can utilize your finger to drag the split pen around so it can be vertical, horizontal or at an angle.

There’s an auto mode for selfies. As you hold the cam still, the electronic camera will take the photo. Any sort of motion as well as it will certainly wait till points settle. A message method permits you add subtitles or titles in an assortment of shades and designs, then you can drag the text to any sort of position. A so-called Super Emphasis mode lets you zoom in to your subject and also set concentration much more specifically.

Ultimately, the application showcases a means to send out pictures privately to others, or via Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.

A number of points missing. Initially, it would certainly behave to utilize the outstanding filters on pictures already in my picture collection, but simply images you take with the app can be modified in this way. I would certainly likewise such as a couple of even more finishing tools like crop, and also maybe structures. There is no assistance available, and the app is not entirely intuitive. You push a button and view exactly what occurs.

Camu is a very interesting application. The collage attribute is particularly innovative. Camu requires iOS 7 or greater but it is not global. It’s maximized for the iPhone 5.
