"If you buy just one filter app, make it CameraBag." -New York Times
Dramatically enhance your photos using the many classic camera and film simulations in CameraBag. It's like having a dozen unique cameras all in one app!
CameraBag focuses on emulating styles and processes from some of the most interesting cameras of the past to enhance the mood of an image, and the results are stunning.
The cameras included in CameraBag are:
"Helga" - Square-format toy camera with washed-out highlights and old-school vignetting.
"Colorcross" - Hazy, chemical color-swapping straight from the darkroom.
"Instant" - No need to shake this instant-developing film.
"Magazine" - Rich tones for glossy pages.
"1974" - Your father's camera: faded, tinted, and hip.
"Lolo" - Shoot from the hip and take life as it comes with vibrant, colorful shots.
"Plastic" - Sweet honey tones like these could only come from the cheapest of cameras.
"Cinema" - Dramatic, moody coloring with a widescreen aspect ratio.
"Silver" - From the earliest days of photography, when taking a shot was a much larger production than it is now.
"1962" - Dynamic, high-contrast black and white from the photojournalism of a bygone era.
"Mono" - Smooth, refined, balanced black and white.
"Infrared" - Simulation of the popular landscape photography technique.
"Fisheye" - Go ahead, get too close to the lens.
"Original" - Just in case you got it right the first time.

Ratings and Reviews
I LOVE this application. It's so much fun! The filter modes are brilliant, and I am addicted to taking photos and seeing what they look like with CameraBag. I do find that it's much easier to take photos using the regular iPhone camera and THEN loading them into the app as your likelihood of crashing seems greater if you take the picture within it, but it is a fantastic tool for anyone who likes the look of plastic photography but doesn't want to carry 5 different cameras around town.
This app has resulted in the best pics on my iPhone!!! It's gorgeous!!!! Love it, excited for all updates :)
I would say there is too much hype going for this application. It has minimal effects while other applications with double the amount are cheaper and have the same quality. Not top material for sure.
