The much-awaited update is finally here -- 50% off for a limited time!!
ClearCam is another mind-blowing app from the creators of 360 Panorama that will help anyone consistently eliminate blur, reduce noise and take sharper, clearer photos with 2x megapixels (up to 18MP on iPhone 5) without missing the moment. No expertise required!
Impossible? Think again! ClearCam performs its magic by analyzing multiple images and combining their information – a technique known as Super Resolution. It is the first and only app that does this with a seamless end-to-end interface that anyone can use.
✓ Fast and easy, no expertise required!
✓ Eliminate blur from shaky hands
✓ Eliminate blur from moving subjects
✓ Reduce noise in low-light (indoor/night)
✓ Increase resolution (up to 18MP)
What's New in Version 1.8.2
✓ Unable to export to the photo roll? This is most likely because ClearCam hasn't been given access to the photo roll! We now show instructions on how to enable access if photo roll export is ever blocked.
✓ We improved capture speed on older devices by squashing some delays during the capture process.
✓ We fixed a crash that happened when there wasn't enough storage to capture an image.

Worth the price for higher quality photos
Good: Easy to use, inexpensive, does what it's designed to do (combine 6 images to make 1 higher resolution/quality image), keeps all 7.
Bad: That's all it does, 3-step process to get the final image (why not just automate that?)
I took shots of the same subject in same lighting at same distance using stock Camera app, Camera Awesome!, and ClearCam. Worst was ClearCam original images, best was ClearCam final image. Best immediate result was the stock camera, best features (especially file sharing) and all-purpose camera app (of the three) is Camera Awesome!. So, for me, I like to have all three, and I use all three depending on the circumstances and purpose. For resolution and quality (more image data to start with for editing), ClearCam is a must-have!
Occipital's other photo apps are worth checking out, too.
What...? must it have such an "extreme processing" 4 photos on one process then to enhance take what 6 photos. Then to finally get the picture you have to align everything you just took, then you can save it to your camera roll.
Why not just take the picture come back later and finishing the "extreme processing" because by the time you finished...you've MISSED THE NEXT SHOT. I don't know, it just doesn't make much sense to me. So that's why you get 3 stars. Honestly, it's a bit confusing & extended just to "enhance" a picture.
For NOW, I JUST WASTED .99 + tax! I'll give it a few more chances since some are just "raving" about it. But I have deleted some apps for less. Just to let you know, but why should you care you got your money!!
Would like it better also if you could import, if all you are doing is editing the picture to "enhance it"...why not?
This really does what is says. I'm impressed with the quality as you zoom in, and this app is a natural replacer for low-light shots.
The flaw is that the app saves a buttload of metadata that it used to process the images. After shooting 10-15 images I found the app size is 798MB!! There is no way to delete this data except to delete the whole app and redownload it.
Hopefully this review will shame them into a fix. I'll update my review once they do.
Feature-request: import your own photos (since clearCam does not do HDR correction)
