Today I’m going to write about ProCam 2. Someone asked me why I haven’t written about the app and my honest opinions. To be honest I have the app but don’t use it at all. I have tried it and played with it. First I’ll give you the run through of the app and my opinions at the end of the post. The top photo up above was taken with ProCam 2.
When you load up the app, you have the normal functions of most camera apps.
This you aspect ratio settings and grid settings. You also have different resolution and formats from camera to video.
These are your live filter packs. There are two filters pack you can unlock at $.99 eash or unlock them all for $1.99. I’m find using the filters that they came with for now.
They have manual controls, easy to use like most camera apps.
If you want 4K video, you have to pay $4.99 to unlock it. There is also 4K time-lapse you have to pay $2.99 to unlock. For me, I’m happy with 1080 HD video.
I feel the biggest misconceptions with developers that design camera apps are adding filter packs, trying to be analog, keeping up with the Jones and adding tools we don’t need. Those are the formulas that make a bad camera app, because it’s become the common formulas. It doesn’t help having a bunch of tools at your disposal when you try to shoot a simple photo with a camera app and the app crashes. Especially when you have the latest iPhone with the latest hardware, operating on the latest iOS and you can’t shoot any photo because it crashes. It doesn’t help to have 4K video, when you can only watch your videos on a computer monitor that has 4K support, 4K TV or You Tube. I feel mobile devices aren’t ready for 4K video until it’s becomes a standard. Right now the standard is 1080 HD, that is fine for me and most people. ProCam 2 is a jam pack app that full of tools you really don’t need for the average person. I get that they want to be ready for the future. But how can you be ready for the future, when your average tools aren’t stable. I read the review in the App Store who swear by this app. I was asked to write about this app. This app doesn’t impress me, when the developers are trying so hard to keep up with the Jones. They really need to step back for a moment and not worry about being trendy. ProCam 2 does have some nice tools when the app is stable, but that’s about it. I will stick to ProCamera 8.
