Lucky Clan today releases Top Camera 3.5 for iOS, an update to their versatile Photography app that adds more than 25 features to the standard iOS Camera app. Top Camera supports operation in both portrait and landscape orientations, includes iTunes File Sharing, and saves images to its internal Gallery, the iOS Photo Library, or both. Version 3.5 includes many new features & bug fixes, including adding a focus and exposure lock, "send feedback" button, new design of focus/expose box, and more.
Version 3.5 includes a lot of new features and bug fixes:
* Added focus lock
* Added exposure lock
* Added "send feedback" button (in settings)
* New design of focus/expose box
* Double tap on focus/expose box to reset focus/expose only
* Fixed problem with recording movie when app was launched for the first time
* Fixed few Japanese translations
* Sound activated shutter – min time between 2 photos set to 2 seconds
* Few other minor bugs fixed
Top Camera incorporates a highly sophisticated, user-selectable focus zone feature, as well as user-selectable exposure zone. This means that iPhone photographers can optimize focus for any part of the photo, and set the exposure by locating that zone that produces the best results. Users just drag the purple box on the screen to the area they would like to have in the sharpest focus. Then they grab the green box and move it around in the frame to find the optimal exposure setting for the scene.
Top Camera’s advanced HDR capabilities extend this feature to a range of iOS devices (any device with a built-in camera), overcoming Apple’s limited support for only iPhone 4. According to Apple, "Now you can take great photos that capture a wider range of light intensity using the new high dynamic range (HDR) setting. After selecting HDR, just point a device at your subject and shoot. iPhone/iPad automatically captures three photos of the scene – each with different exposure levels. Then it layers the shots together to create a single photo that combines the best elements of each shot and more accurately represents the wide range of light in the scene. Both the regular shot and the HDR photo appear in the Camera Roll."
