The stock camera app can take photos and videos, but that’s about it. Luckily, there are all kinds of apps out there that can enhance that basic functionality, and KitCam is the newest addition. KitCam is designed to let you take great photos and video to begin with, so you don’t need to edit much later. The app is able to do so because it’s absolutely jam packed with features beginning with dual exposure and focus controls allowing you to focus on one point while setting exposure on another, and you can drag the indicators to see how the live preview changes.
The main feature may be the live preview function which also applies to the effects which include 13 lenses, 30 films, and 18 frames. KitCam also has built-in modes for times, stabilized, multi-exposure, multi-shot, and time-lapse with customization options for each mode. There’s also composition aids with grid, level, and histogram while shooting, and you can also change the aspect ratio. There’s also the option for continuous shooting, high speed, low-light, and more with everything offering automatic and manual control options.
KitCam turns your iPhone camera into a professional camera with multiple shooting kits and attachments built into the software. No matter what you try to shoot, there seems to be an option for it, and you always have the live preview to know how your photo will look before you snap it. Once you take the photo, you’re then delivered a deluxe photo editing suite, based on the developers other great photo app, PhotoForge2. You can crop, auto enhance, adjust the various color balances, and alter the levels of brightness, exposure, saturation, and more. Though there are all of these features, they’re all extremely accessible due to the smooth touch based interface.
KitCam ($1.99, iPhone) is the only camera app you need. It offers up every feature you could want, and delivers it all exceptionally well on the iPhone. KitCam is a must buy that can sit on your dock, and deliver professional camera shooting and deluxe after effects all in one.
