Secondly, every iPhone camera app tries to beat the competition by adding more features and more complexity. It’s time for that trend to change. Less is more with PureShot, the inexpensive iPhone camera app that dares to Think Different™.
Low Features, High Quality
While each version of the iPhone comes with an improved camera, iPhone camera applications tend to tack on the features until the cows are too full to come home.
PureShot takes a different approach by being a camera app that’s filter free. Instead of all kinds of filters, all you get is the highest quality image possible.
There’s no image processing going on. Whatever PureShot does it does with the intent to capture the highest quality image possible.
There are plenty of post-processing filter, effects, and photo enhancement apps, but none focus on the original image quality.
PureShot itself comes with a modest sub-$2.00 price tag but there’s another tradeoff to get higher image quality.
Complexity. Compare Apple’s iPhone camera app controls to this.
Quality features include High Quality JPEG, Max-Quality JPEG, all the way up to dRAW TIFF.
Tap to focus is configurable with multi-zone or positionable spot metering. Aspect ration can be adjusted from standard 4:3 to square or typical 35mm 3:2 ratio.
Unfortunately, simplicity isn’t part of the equation as the screen is a bit cluttered with comprehensive settings.
There’s real time ISO, shutter-speed, and GPS readouts, and a choice of four real time histogram options.
Night mode gives you extended shutter speeds up to one second. And, there’s a built-in 6X digital zoom.
There’s a lot going on with PureShot, but all the extras are designed to capture the highest quality image, completely devoid of post processing filters and effects.
