This has become my default camera app

I shoot a lot of pictures on my phone- my Instagram has 2.2k pictures posted (@mr_los_siento). I've used a ton of apps for shooting and post processing like Black and Contrast by Hornbeck, but Camera1 has become my favorite for a few reasons.

1. Very intuitive controls that are the perfect size and design for touchscreen. The 3 axis EV, contrast, and manual focus are responsive and brilliant for adjusting on the fly.

2. The ability to shoot in b/w and save a copy in color- even if I intend to use the color version, shooting in b/w is superior for allowing you to focus on composition, tone, and contrast.

3. Imbed a copyright in exif; not a necessity, but a great add.

Final thoughts: definitely worth the cost 👍🏼👍🏼.

My favorite black & white camera app

Shows what your image will look like with your settings in real time. If you're just getting into photography this app will help you visualize the world in black & white. If you're a pro you can set up the app and it will stay out of your way.

I love the Zen mode for just a pure shooting experience. I like the histogram pops up when you move the exposure slider.

If you are experienced with shooting film, the color filters work very well. Produces great images straight from the camera. You can also view and export any image from your camera roll in black & white (no editing though).

It would be nice to have the option to know what shutter and ISO are being used. Would like to see a save to tiff file option. Tapping anywhere on the screen for the shutter causes too many misfires for me, but you can use the volume buttons (you can also use the volume button on your apple earbuds).
