I have been enjoying my iPhone 4 camera since our trip to Asia in the spring. Now I am finding more and more that I prefer using it to my very expensive DSLR. While the iPhone 4 camera cannot compete with the overall capacity of my Nikon D7000; for portability, ease of use, excellent blog shots, and small prints I find the iPhone 4 cannot be beaten.
The iPhone 4s has just hit the market and its camera is 1 step better. I imagine I will have this new phone/cam by Xmas.
Here is a short list of my favorite iPhone 4 Camera Apps
Hipstamatic – The original cool camera app that has multiple lenses and films (pieces of software) that age, enhance, and cool-ify your everyday shots.
Pros – Photo Contests, Ease of use, and fun to play make it a winner.
Cons – Not enough manual control and too much guesswork sometimes on how it will develop
Camera+ – This is now my go to app for creating controlled shots from the phone.
Pros – Multiple processing options and the ability to use the LED as a constant (great for dim lights food shots)
Cons – The HDR settings are dodgy
True HDR - My newest app and I am just experimenting with this. I have seen some amazing work on Google+ with this app
Pros – True HDR photography and processing with an iPhone
Cons – You must have a little tripod to do this correctly otherwise your shots will not align
Instagram – It looks like Instagram is taking over the social-media component of iPhone photography
Pros – Universally accepted standard for social media photography
Cons – My least favorite of the iPhone apps for ease of use and getting my photos on the computer. Not a big fan, but I see the Appeal
In the meantime, enjoy some of recent iPhone 4 snow shots and stay tuned for more iPhone shots in the future.
