The definitive ToyCamera app TiltShiftGen has been reborn for iOS7!
TiltShiftGen2 is an app that allows users to take photos in various styles such as ToyCamera or single-lens reflex camera styles.
In addition to acclaimed features from the previous version such as lens blur and color correction, 9 new filter types and a live preview have been added. Users can add a variety of ToyCamera style effects, including the miniature effect and the vintage effect.
This app is exclusively for use with iOS7, and is recommended for use with iPhone4S or later models.
-lens blur (round, elliptical, linear)
-9 filter types
-app can post photos to Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Instagram or Webio
What's New in Version 1.06
Thanks for your using TSG2!
I just added new tutorial "Photography ABC".
This new version of TiltShiftGen appears to have only two new features:
- the ability to adjust blurred areas with two fingers
The blur adjust feature is nice. The filters are
useless, at least to me.
But the upgrade has two big fails:
- in the previous version, saturation, brightness and contrast would remain at pre-set levels. Now I have to set them individually for every image - a huge drag. This is just poor design.
- the app now does a lot of processing BEFORE displaying the image - before I even know if I want to keep the shot. (The previous version did the processing only after saving, a much more palatable procedure.)
As a result of these two design failures, it takes much longer to produce an acceptable image.
I recommend the previous version.
The original Tiltshiftgen was one of the only apps available that employed multiple blur levels to create a gradual decrease in focus, far more like an actual camera effect than any of the competition.
Unfortunately, this update uses the same cheap single overlay as all the other tiltshift effects, simply fading in a blurred version of the image instead of trying to simulate a focus shift.
The results are, indeed, faster, but the quality is awful. It's more like a dirty lens than a defocus effect.
Don't waste your money.
Using the camera button in app usually yields a black photo you cannot use and the app also crashes almost every other time you try and use it.
Pass on this app and find another tilt shift app.
