Camera+ for iPhone

I never knew how beautiful the rain could be.
I never paused to notice.

Okay… I have been told many times that “the best camera is the one that you have with you”, but never really experienced it first hand until yesterday. I was driving home in wind, pouring rain, and the road was flooded in many areas. Not fun. Suddenly the sky opened up and displayed a full spectrum of one of the most incredible rainbows I have ever experienced. After beating myself up for a few minutes for not having a camera to document this site, I quickly remembered my iPhone. I pulled over and walked through the mud to the cool Joshua Tree above and took the photos with my new iPhone camera app I am loving,  Camera+. The photo below features my favorite camera apps I keep in a folder named “Photography”.

Features that make Camera+ photo app stand out from all the rest (at least my take):

  • Costs only 99 cents
  • Image stabilizer that works
  • Digital zoom that works
  • Self-timer that is amazing, especially if you are using an iPhone 4
  • Digital flash to use when the picture is too dark or taken inside
  • Burst mode to shoot rapid streams of shots
  • Very powerful image editing
  • Most of all, you can set exposure separately from focus for the ultimate control of your shots… simply touch with a 2nd finger while focusing to adjust exposure until your shot is perfect (see below).

CameraWeb2I just love technology, especially it seems lately if an apple icon is associated to it in any way. Are there other applications out there to enjoy nature more fully?
