I'm Testing Out the 645 PRO Mk III iPhone Camera App

I'm just testing out the 645 PRO Mk III iPhone camera app. The experience is as close to using a non-phone camera as I've found. This app has, among other things:

  • manual exposure control and automatic exposure with a choice of spot or matrix metering
  • semi-automatic shutter priority and ISO priority, both of which include ±3 exposure value compensation
  • automatic white balance, a selection of white balance presets, and the ability to create and save a custom white balance
  • manual focus override and focus-peaking
  • real-time exposure metering, ISO and shutter-speed readings, exposure values, GPS data, and a choice of histograms
  • shutter release button behaviour configuration
  • shoot unprocessed or in Film Mode, which are modes inspired by film stock from the 1960s to present day
  • 7 size formats
  • images can be saved as high-quality jpegs or as TIFFs

Here's what it looks like when you're shooting:

So far, with my limited experimentation, I'm liking it. Just click on the kitty photo to enlarge it and take a look at the clarity of Onion's ear hair! You never knew you'd want to marvel at the clarity of ear hair, but you do.

I think this is going to be my go-to camera for the next while so I can have a chance to play with more of its abilities. It's definitely worth the $4.59 price on it. Whee!
