Never content with the status quo, the new VSCO Cam™ is a massive leap forward for mobile photography. Utilizing innovative technology, VSCO Cam™ enables results previously unattainable on the iPhone and iPod Touch.
The Camera supports Focus and Exposure Rings plus White Balance Lock for increased creative control. The Library boasts multiple thumbnail sizes for a customizable browsing experience, as well as the ability to organize, favorite and filter images.
The superior technology of VSCO Cam™ is best seen in the editing of images. VSCO Cam™ includes a default set of Presets and Tools whose strength can be adjusted, allowing for efficient editing and precise customization. Photographers can add to their editing arsenal as well, as 48 Presets are available for purchase in the In-App store. From vivid colors to faded black and whites, the store offers the best mobile presets on the market.
Photographers can easily share their images via multiple outlets. VSCO Grid™, a minimalist publishing platform for showcasing the best in mobile photography, is directly integrated into the app, making sharing simple. Photographers post their images to their personal VSCO Grid™, which are then curated and featured as a stunning gallery collection on the VSCO website. VSCO Grid™ is currently limited to a small but growing group of creators, but already boasts arguably the best living collection of mobile imagery on the web. Photographers can also easily share their images on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Weibo, Camera Roll and email.
