Quad Camera

grid

Every couple weeks it seems like there’s a new photo app for the iPhone to talk about. This week is no different after I saw swissmiss mention the Quad Camera. There’s four different settings to take some lomo like images from. If your familiar w/ grids you’ll see the system in play right away. Everything is divisible by fours as I drew out.

I’ve been experimenting with it for 2 days and have been happy with the results. Between the timing and four formats it took a lot a shots to grab four that I liked though. It’s def. a trial and error kind of app. Almost like film where you don’t know what the results are going to be until it’s been shot. But since no real film or chemicals were used in creating those images the only expendable resource used was time. So if you have plenty of that and a good location you’ll have some fun.

While I’m happy to spread the word about apps that I enjoy, Apple would be wise to start an affiliate program cause the only way iphone app info is spreading is via blogs. Kind of makes you wonder if the app business would survive if no one mentioned the iPhone online.

    For the record. I love QuadCam and have been taking what I think are incredibly cool shots with it. I would like to point out that I discovered that the app is actually taking screen shots from the phone (as opposed to using the actual camera to make the images) which would explain the lower resolution of the images, and the increased file size by simply adding more sectors to your shot (ie. 4 vs 8).

    Just an FYI.

    quadcamera and polarize are the saviors of iphone's camera. without these the built-in camera wouldn't be worthwhile… i love it!
