A first of it's kind, 645 PRO App delivers. Get it FREE!
A first of its kind, jag.gr's "pro" like photo app 645 Pro is the closest thing that offers DSLR controls at your finger tips for the iPhone. How so? Well the app captures the image before the iPhone can compress it, and saves it as a JPEG file ready to use in other photo editing apps. At the same time it saves it as a TIFF file which you can later download to iTunes then into any desktop photo editing program like Lightroom.
While the interface may seem a bit busy, one needs to remember this isn't like your typical photo app where you spend a minute or two taking and editing your image. Creativity is the key with 645 Pro and I found all the features offered of great use during a shoot. I suggest giving yourself some time when using this app just like you would with a DSLR. At first the buttons seemed small but I got the hang of it after a while of fiddling with them.
A few goodies this app comes with is a active histogram next to real-time ISO and shutter speed readings allowing control of your exposure, focus and white balance. It also gives you both multi-zone and spot-metering options with five separate backs: 6×6, 6×7, 645, 6×9 and 6×17.
Another nice surprise on this app is it's seven film modes: F4, H5 and T3 offer up a variety of Black and white options while C42, E6K, FC5 and K14 gives you several choices of color films. Seems too much for you? No worries an easy to read manual to help you understand and optimize the app is provided.
Weather you are truly a photo enthusiasts or would like to become one, I strongly recommend you grab this app.
