camera features


Camera ICS is an interesting and very useful application available on Google Play that you can get for free. A paid version named Camera ICS+ is also available that is Ad free but I guess free version should serve the purpose for most people. Apparently this app is basically a direct rip of the AOSP version of the camera app from the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. So it supports all the interesting features that are available in the AOSP Android 4.0.3 flavor. It also means that this is most useful for the devices which don’t have stock ICS camera app Read More >


Since Apple started to release the Dev versions of the iOS 5 to the developers most of the users expected that a Panoramic mode for the system camera App in the iOS 5 will make its debut with the official release of the iOS 5. Well, it didn’t happen, but it seems that code for the Panoramic mode was still lying their underneath in iOS – just waiting to be enabled and sure enough inevitable happened as the @chpwn – a famous iOS jailbreak developer found a way to enable it for the iPhone and iPod Touch users that have Read More >


After such a long wait Google and Samsung finally released the Samsung Galaxy Nexus in a media event in Hong Kong with the retail availability expected in November. This also marks it as the first device to get the Ice Cream Sandwich love which for sure will be followed by the other popular devices. By now most us already know that Galaxy Nexus supports some impressive specs ranging from the gigantic 4.6-inch Super AMOLED HD screen, to the 1.2 GHz processor from Texas Instruments. Device also supports 1GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage NFC capability among a host of Read More >


One of the small but highly useful new features in the iOS 5 is the ability to launch the camera app directly from the lock screen without unlocking the phone, and then launching the app from the springboard. This really help to cut some time when you are in a hurry to catch a spontaneous photo as few seconds can make a difference that will decide that if you will be able to capture that moment or not. However, some new iOS 5 users might not know that you have to enable this feature for the Camera icon to appear Read More >

iPhone 4S-

As we all know that iPhone 4S introduction was a rather incremental release than a revolutionary one. However, from a high level iPhone 4S did include include two major features (from a hardware perspective) that sets it apart from the last gen iPhone 4. One of them is new significantly improved camera and another of course is the inclusion of major speed bump by the integration of the A5 SoC inherited from the iPad 2. We will talk about the performance and features of the A5 chip in an upcoming article but for now I want to draw your attention Read More >


There is some really interesting piece of information that passed my eyes. A few weeks back Samsung announced a new 1/2.3-inch 16 megapixel sensor based on the CMOS technology named S5K2P1. In addition to the ridiculously high megapixel count on this new sensor another interesting inclusion is the BSI (Backside Illumination Technology) that should allow it to perform really well in the low light conditions. BSI is the same technology that you might remember from the newly released iPhone 4S camera. Another interesting point is that this 16MP sensor is optimized for use in mobile phones cameras. This leads us Read More >


Ever think you’ve seen the last of the camera apps for the iPhone? Well, I suggest you think again. This new kid on the block has quite the ear for photography! Anyone who’s used an iPhone knows that there are round about gazillion apps to enhance the functionality of its camera. Having covered virtually all possible features, it’s hard to believe that there is yet one more app out there that claims to do something different. But this is no faux claim; there actually is! ShutterVox, the latest addition to Apple’s arsenal of camera apps, lets you snap pictures with Read More >


As you already know Apple’s latest iPhone 4 not only includes a high quality 5MP camera but also a flash features to support it, a feature that has been missing from the iPhone 3GS. However, if for some reason you want to quickly capture a spontaneous moment on a photo, its not easy to get access to the Camera application (or LED) as first you have to first unlock the phone then search and launch the Camera application. As you can see it may take some time and you may very well miss the key moment. Same can be said Read More >

iOS 5 includes enhancements to the Camera application as well, and one of the most exciting enhancements include the ability to use the physical volume buttons to take the snapshots – finally! However, most of us are of course not on the iOS 5 beta, and still using the iOS 4.x. For those people there is a very nice jailbreak tweak available in Cydia that provides this functionality. Tweak I am referring to is called SnapTap that allows to use the physical volume buttons to snap the pictures rather than the usual touch on the screen button. SnapTap works with Read More >
