The name CameraBag suggests the notion of an app that is like a magic bag with several different cameras in it. Simulating the look of some famous vintage cameras, like Holga and Lomo, CameraBag for iPhone is a promise of photographic enjoyment for many to have always in their pocket.

CameraBag is a very intuitive and simple to use app for photo editing. It works both with the camera and with photos stored in the camera roll. The ready-made filters cover a variety of effects and all the user has to do is to scroll, choose among them and save. Some effects are very well done and effectively convey the feel of vintage cameras; some others perhaps don’t work quite as well. The Infrared filter, for instance, isn’t very convincing in its results. We’re not fans of fisheye simulators either, which often look like nothing more than vaguely distorted versions of an original that’s clearly not taken with an actual fisheye lens; the CameraBag Fisheye filter is not an exception. Some weaker filters may work better in combination with others, and in general it’s possible to experiment filtering photos again and again to look at sometimes unexpected results. At any rate, the CameraBag app, for its immediateness of use and clear interface can be a good choice especially for those who don’t like to spend too much time playing with filters but still want to spice their otherwise plain photos up.
