Camera+ 2.2 Is Here!

by Pu on March 30, 2011

The announced update of Camera+ is finally here.

The 2.2 release introduces Clarity, a new feature which, the developers state, “can make your photos look truly stunning with just one tap”. The new feature is a processing tool whose purpose is bringing out details and enlivening dull shots in the easiest possible way.

Here you can see an example of how Clarity affects photos:

Clarity: before and after

Clarity is not the only thing worth noting in version 2.2. Other changes and improvements are the following:

  • Added ‘+’ button to the touch focus control to enable easy splitting into focus and exposure controls — and here is the explanation to the ‘+’ symbol in the app’s icon;
  • Multiple photos are now saved to Camera Roll according to the order they were selected
  • Better indication when camera is auto-focusing;
  • Improvements to Pinhole effect;
  • Improvements to Vintage border;
  • Shutter button bug fixed;
  • Incorrect date/time bug when saving to camera roll fixed;
  • Timer countdown time bug fixed;
  • Cancel buttons bug in sharing fixed;
  • Various minor bug fixes and enhancements.

Clarity is OK. Not stunning as I was expecting after reading the developer’s blog that was advertising it as the best thing in photography apps, or something along these lines. I like Camera+, to this day is one of the apps I like more, but I would like some improvement, I mean actual improvement, to a few of the borders and effects.

I Like Camera+, it is my default camera replacer (crazy english, hope you got it). Overall it was a nice update but I’d say “clarity” wont work for every shot. The shot above is a good example: details and vibrant colors are nice, but the grainy-noise-y-overly-sharp effect, not that much.

I agree with Luiz: clarity is a nice addition, but won’t do wonders on every shot, as the developers promise. Like with any other filter, you have to choose the right shot and use it in moderation. I think for enhancing bright colors when the photo is a little duller it is a nice solution, but many other filters are able to do the same, more or less. It’s still good to know the app gets frequent updates and new features tho.
