Camera Awesome - Review

Camera Awesome Review


SmugMug has created a truly awesome camera app in Camera Awesome. From the way it sounds when it focuses and captures images right down to image editing, Camera Awesome will make you fall in love with taking pictures on your iPhone or iPad all over again.

Camera Awesome comes with tools like a level for the horizon and composition tools which are extremely useful. The app also includes some helpful features like Image Stabilisation, Big Button (makes the whole viewing panel a camera button), slow burst, fast burst and even a timer.

There's even an option to use a constant light instead of flash(doesn't seem like much at first, but trust me, it makes a big difference). Even with all the great tools and functions, it was easy to pick my favourite feature for Camera Awesome, and that's the ability to focus on one spot and set exposure in another. It makes taking pictures against the light a whole lot better.

The best part about Camera Awesome by SmugMug is that it's so easy to use! And with the built in awesomize ability, it truly makes all your photos look so much better.

We found some areas for improvement when we were testing the app, we were unable to export images from Camera Awesome into our Camera Roll. The work around that we found, was to email the images to yourself using Camera Awesome's share via email function. Which leads to the next problem, when a bunch of images were selected and shared via email, they were stuffed into a zip file to reduce the size of the email, however, when unzipping the file, only one image out of the whole bunch would appear. The work around we found for this was to save the images individually as they appear in the text area of the email.
