"If you buy just one filter app, make it CameraBag." -New York Times
A love letter to the analog era, CameraBag is the most popular iPhone photo filter app of all time, and has now come to the iPad. It instantly emulates photography's most beloved and iconic cameras, film, and processing techniques.
CameraBag's addictive approach skips hours of processing work and instead puts you in the role of an editor, flipping through a collection of polished, print-ready treatments, each with infinite variation. Simply choose the best one and save, e-mail, or upload it to popular sites.
CameraBag now takes full advantage of the iPad with a re-imagined interface, increased resolution, and innovative new features. The addictive Vary button offers a new take on the current filter each time it's pressed, for infinite versions of each filter. It's like telling CameraBag "Try the same look but make it a little different this time." iPad users also get to mix and match aspect ratio and border styles across filters for fresh new looks.
The cameras included in CameraBag:
"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.
"Cinema" - Dramatic, moody coloring with a widescreen aspect ratio.
"Silver" - From the earliest days of photography and movies, when creating a picture was a production.
"1962" - Dynamic, high-contrast black and white from the photojournalism of a bygone era.
"Mono" - Smooth, refined, balanced black and white.
"Original" - Just in case you got it right the first time.
To use CameraBag:
1. Select. Choose a photo from your photo library.

What's New in Version 1.92
- Added "Plastic" filter
- Updated for compatibility with iOS 4.2
Not worth the money!
Missing several very important features. I have the desktop version and thought this would be the same. Not even close. All this program will do is add filters. No way to manually crop, compare before and after, adjust contrast or brightness, adjust filter strength etc. Also very limited filters and since they are non adjustable they are very limited. Again, a real disappointment compared to the PC version.
Some great features, some room for improvement.
I absolutely love the [Vary] button and think every app in the App Store should have one! I wish there were more basic filters, including a Kodachrome filter (I've been searching high and low!) and a HDR filter. I also, like an earlier reviewed, sorely wish it saved state from session to session. Keep going!
Nevercenter is falling short
I bought CameraBag on my iPhone within the first few days it was released.
Updates were fairly regular and kept up with the hardware and OS improvements.
So when I got my iPad 2, one of the first apps that interested me was the "uprated" iPad version of CameraBag.
It is a disappointment to say the least.
Compared to other similar apps in this price range, it lacks some fundamental features like repositioning a photo within the default crop sizes.
Actually, there is NO control over the crop.
Come on Nevercenter, bring this app up iOS 4 standards. Trust me, we can handle it.
I didn't go down to one star because it still can do what it says but it's just not worth it at this time.
