Camera+ iOS Update Brings The iPhone 5′s New Low-light Capability To The App
The iPhone 5′s camera is very much similar to the iPhone 4S camera, but comes with some new features. For example, the lens cover is made of Sapphire crystal and the ISO sensitivity now ranges from 800 to 3200, which gives amazing low-light photos.
Apple made it so that developers can add the iPhone 5 low-light boost mode to their own apps with the addition of some extra lines of code. It looks like Camera+ is the first app to take advantage of this new feature and add it to its app. A new update for the app, Camera + 3.5.1 has been released in the App Store with the new low-light capability and some other bug fixes.
We’re excited to announce that Camera+ 3.5.1 supports extended low-light shooting on the iPhone 5! To show you exactly what this means we’ve taken a comparison photo with Camera+ on the iPhone 4, iPhone 5, and iPhone 5 with new low-light mode. It adds some additional noise, as you can see in the 100% zoom, but it also enables you to take photos you wouldn’t have been able to take otherwise.
The result is actually pretty impressive. As you can see in the sample photo below, the difference between the captures from the iPhone 4S (ISO 800) and the iPhone 5 (ISO 2000) is pretty good. This new low-light mode will only work on the iPhone 5 and ISO 3200 will work only if it’s really dark. And of course there will be more noise, but that can’t be helped. With the new update you can also upload higher quality photos to Facebook.
Camera+ is currently available in the App Store and is on sale for $0.99, because of the recently released Camera+ for iPad. As sycg, buy it before the price goes up again!
