Take perfectly aligned photos with a cool pro look. In real time. Only the unique live perspective correction of the Gimbse Camera app allows you to take "straight" images even from the worst positions and viewing angles. This innovative technology combines the simulation of a three-axis gimbal with adaptive tilt and shift functions to align the subject. Augmented reality visualizes the live perspective correction directly in the camera image and can be easily adapted to any spatial situation with the available correction modes.

Pro Calibration

The intuitively designed pro calibration enables highest precision in the alignment of the live perspective correction. Once the different positions of your iPhone are set, you never have to worry about "skewed " images again. Simply use the preset combination of horizon and architecture mode to quickly take a picture. For the straight display of two-dimensional objects, such as images, the gallery mode is also available, and for very skewed cases also the easel mode.

Exposure and White Balance

The exposure setting works with dynamic color-preserving compression. This replaces hard color breaks in overexposed image areas with natural transitions, similar to the exposure behavior of classic film. The special operation of the automatic white balance enables an even more precise determination of the neutral grey value.

Compatible With the Photos App

All recordings are saved directly into the Photos app, where they can be edited, managed and shared. For preview, the album is available within the app, in which you can view your latest pictures in detail without having to switch to the Photos app.

Comparison Images

Optionally, you can have a comparison image created for each photo, which shows the effects of live perspective correction, color-preserving exposure compression and the color filter using the example of the current subject. Use the comparison images, for example, to study the significance of perspective for image composition. Or just share it with your friends to show them the incredible possibilities of the Gimbse Camera app.

Spend time with it

First- I haven't used 1.1 but as soon as I saw the button redesign it was obvious I had to update before I read what else changed. We're creatures of habit; no matter your goals with the original long button it was bound to annoy, befuddle, confuse, deter, exasperate, flummox, gall, pique, quandarize, repel, smite or torment users who villify wildly xenomorphic design. Apologies both to users who appreciated it and for my awful acrostic attempt.

You'll probably need to play around with this a bit prior to relying on it for can't miss shots since the framing looks weird. Cats, especially sleeping, and flowers work well for my experimentation since the angles can be challenging and even multiple shots and camera adjustments don't guarantee getting a reasonable shot. Shots seem to come more slowly than with the native camera but that's probably my learning curve too.

I just moved from iPhone 6 Plus to 7 Plus; love the camera. Anything is a excuse for photos, already boring to companions and even my late service dog wasn't always happy about it but it's so much fun to always have a darned nice camera on hand.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for this wonderful literary review! As my native language is German I had to look up most of your words an I‘m sure I missed out the full richness of your variations. Nevertheless I can feel their appealing linguistic flow.

As for the design you got my Achille‘s heel. So you might be happy to hear that I am already working on a version 2.0, which will hopefully make everything easier to understand and more enjoyable. This will of course take its time, but the update will be free for all Gimbse users.
