Zaubersee introduces Camera- 1.0, their new universal Camera app for iOS devices. Camera- will take a picture by simply clicking your tongue. Any sound will ensure that the camera takes a picture so that the photographer’s hands will be free to hold the iPhone. It permanently illuminates a scene with a flashlight and offers image processing while taking a picture. The retouch-mode lets the user correct small flaws in the picture. Users can transfer pictures to Facebook, Twitter and Dropbox.
Falkensee, Germany - Zaubersee is pleased to announce the release of their new app, Camera- 1.0, an universal Camera app for iPhone, iPad and iPod. The new iPhone 4S is here. And the new IOS 5 gets an even higher degree of performance out of the camera. But it gets even better. The new app “Camera-: will take a picture by simply clicking your tongue. It permanently illuminates a scene with a flashlight and offers image processing while taking a picture. The retouch-mode lets the user correct small flaws in the picture. The app may be used to transfer pictures to Facebook, Twitter and Dropbox.
In a nutshell:
* App-Introduction: Camera- 1.0
* App for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
* Image recording through front and back camera
* 4 shooting and 5 trigger modes
* Illuminating a scene with a flashlight
* Artificial horizon and stabilization indicator
* Extensive editing features
* Cropping, retouch mode
* Transfer of pictures to Facebook, Twitter, Dropbox
When it comes to taking pictures with the iPhone, Camera- provides a whole new feel-good factor. The app has numerous features that by far exceed what the improved photo app of the iOS 5 offers in innovations.
Camera- provides three different help features which can be displayed in the camera preview. Auxiliary lines and an artificial horizon help to align the photos. The stabilizer protects the photos in three steps from camera shake and a picture may only be taken if the iPhone is held very steady.
The internal timer takes care of recording new images. An automatic release can be set with a delay of up to 50 seconds. In the burst mode someone may take as many serial pictures in a row as desired, by simply holding down the trigger button. The images will be saved instantly in the library. A big success is also the “clapper mode”. Any sound (even tongue clicking) will ensure that the camera takes a picture so that the photographer’s hands will be free to hold the iPhone. Camera- is perfect for left-handed persons since the controller may easily be adapted to their needs.
Camera- offers many unusual features. The flash for example may be turned on permanently by using the LED light of the iPhone 4/4S as a flashlight to illuminate an indoor scene. Experts adjust focus and exposure separately. A real extra: image processing while taking a picture. It automatically adjust the size of an image, incorporates a pre-selected effect, a border or a scene setting and optimizes brightness and contrast as well. The finished pictures may not only be stored on the iPhone, but can be automatically posted on Facebook, Twitter or Dropbox.
Ralf Zimmer from Zaubersee: “All settings can be stored in a set - with its own name and icon. Camera- will automatically apply the pre-selected functions of a specific set and use them on demand. This too is one of the real special features of our app.”
Camera- provides the finishing touch with an internal image processing feature that assists in creating the perfect photo. Here the user has the option to adjust contrast, brightness and sharpness, crop, rotate or select a border. Even unwanted objects and elements may be removed from a photo by simply marking them with the touch of a finger. Someone can also take advantage of the unique retouch mode.
