For high-quality images, medium-format cameras were the professionals’ choice for years. And many preferred the framing of the 6x7cm format above all. 6x7 for iPhone takes you back to that time, with beautiful, high-resolution images that aren’t quite square – but aren’t too stretched out, either.
Give your iPhone a taste of classic medium-format photography. Sick of square? Weary with widescreen? Let 6x7 give your photographic world a new shape.

What's New in Version 3.10
Release 3.10 introduces a range of performance enhancements along with minor bug-fixes.
This app is the closest you'll get to shooting with a Leica on your iphone, on any phone for that matter. Yes, it's that good, that special, and for 99 cents, a ridiculous value. I'm a huge fan of all of this developer's apps, from 645pro to PureShot, etc. But there's something special about 6x7, some hidden quality to the photos that the others don't have. I don't know if it's an accident or intended but the resolution, the contrast, the image is as close to out of the camera wet film as I've ever seen on any other app, and I've tried most. It's ease of use, easy interface, and total simplistic control only adds to the romance of using this camera. I would complain about the fact that there hasn't been an update of this app in a while, but, honestly, I really don't want one. No changes, nothing. If they can get even higher quality without changing anything, I'm all for it, otherwise, don't touch it. My last note is that it's the best high contrast black and white shooter you can find. If you love photography pay .99 cents and play with this app, you will not regret it.
I am a fan of 645 Pro and PureShot and bought this (and 6x6) mainly to show support for the developer. I didn't take a lot of pictures back in the days of film cameras, so these apps are helping me fill in my background photographic skills.
Flipping the Flash switch and hearing the whine of the strobe condenser brings back memories of my old rangefinder.
Needs an update.
I love the photos I've taken with this app, particularly the B&W ones, but it is quite buggy. In particular, when taking a shot part of the screen will appear to be "split" if that makes sense? And it crashes on occasion.
