6×7 – New iPhoneography App

Share

For high-quality images, medium-format cameras were the professionals’ choice for years. And many preferred the framing of the 6x7cm format above all. Now 6×7 takes you back to that time, with beautiful, high-resolution images that aren’t quite square – but aren’t too stretched out, either.

This app has just hit the app store and you can pick it up for $0.99/£0.69 by clicking here.
