Hi! Thanks for reading. This post looks better in our award-winning app, Tips & Tricks for iPhone.
Camera RX – was $3/£3, now FREE
Most people stick with the default Camera app for taking photos with their iPhone or iPad – but there are plenty of alternatives out there for folks who want a little more from their photographs. Camera RX is one of these, offering a ton of pro features and a completely unique interface. At the time of writing, you can get the app entirely free!
This app has all the features you’d expect from a high-performance pro camera: image correct tools, manual control of focus and exposure, anti-shake correction, white balance editing, plenty of filters, support for high-res RAW imagery, and more.
But forget all that; the unique selling point of Camera RX is its “buttonless shooting” interface.
Unlike other camera apps, there’s no shutter button in sight – tapping anywhere on screen (save for a tiny menu along the bottom) will snap a picture. This allows you to focus wholly on the scene in front of you instead of checking whether or not your thumb is aligned perfectly with the right button.
No-look shooting is particularly useful, we think, when shooting from unusual angles where you can’t see the screen properly, or if you want to grab a better-quality selfie with the rear camera. It makes it much more comfortable as you can hold the device however you like when shooting.
Camera RX was released less than a year ago, and this is the first time it’s been discounted, so now’s definitely the best time to give it a go!
If you’re serious about getting the very best photos, advanced camera apps like these are a big help. And for even more advice and tips on the subject, check out the lessons offered by our partners at the iPhone Photography Academy.
Please note: this is a temporary sale and Camera RX may return to full price at any time – to be sure of what you’re paying, always double check the price shown on the App Store before purchasing.
