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 >

iPhone 4S

iPhone 4S is current best iOS based smartphone available despite the fact that many users expected a bit more from Apple this time in the form of new iPhone 5 considering the delayed launch and also growing competition form Android based smartphones.

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 >

Traditionally iPhone 3GS video recording capability is limited to VGA 640×480 resolution, although 5.0 MP image sensor installed on the iPhone 3GS supports much higher capability. 720p high definition recording is something that is reserved for the newer generation iPhone 4.

I am sure some you might be thinking that is not something new because this tweak has been known for quite some time. However, the original tweak was only working till iOS 4.2.x.

There are mainly two reasons for this trend. First iPhone is lightweight and easier carry around than most other dedicated point&shoot cameras (and of course it is a smartphone also!). While the second reason I think is that the recent iPhone Read More >

iPhone 4 camera includes a technology that many of its users might not know about which contributes significantly to its higher image quality and used rather rarely in mobile-phone/ smart-phone cameras. This technology is called Back Side Illumination (BSI) and was highlighted as one of the key features of the iPhone 4 camera back many months back when Steve Jobs was announcing the iPhone 4 to the world. BSI technology basically allows the image sensor in the camera to capture more light when taking a snapshot which ultimately helps to increase the image sensor sensitivity. High image sensor sensitivity enhances Read More >
