Camera360 4.0 for Android adds many new features

I have a minor obsession with Android camera apps -- I seem to collect them, but there are only a handful that I really use on a regular basis. One of my favorite go-to image apps is called Camera360, which I have been using for the past two or three years. The app provides a number of features, but my favorite is the ability to snap HDR (high dynamic range) photos.

Today the developers have rolled out version 4.0 of the app and brought along a number of great new features and settings. Camera360 boasts to be "one of best camera apps favored by over 90 million users all over the world with fantastic Filters to make gorgeous photos".

Version 4.0 adds six shooting modes to make your photography easier. These include Effects, Self-shoot, Fast-shoot, Funny, Tilt-shift, Color-shift, color-shift and multi-effects is now available to make your photos more creative. Additional features include new scenes to decorate photos, Camera360 Cloud and a new UI and landscape mode.

The new user interface is especially nice. There is a simple slider now at the base of the main screen -- slide it left to choose from a long list of effects and to the right to choose between scenes -- another lengthy list. Simply tap the button to return to the photo mode. You can also hold down the arrow button at the bottom right to access the shooting modes and delve into the gallery from the bottom left icon.

Conclusion

The app still excels at HDR, the examples of before and after can be seen above, but it now contains a number of new features that make it even more functional and cement its place as my go-to choice whenever I wish to grab an image. Plus, back when I acquired this app it came at a cost, though I have since forgot exactly what I paid for it. Now it is free from the Google Play store. In other words, this is a must have for anyone who uses their Android phone for photography and it is compatible with versions 2.2 (Froyo) and newer.

    I will have to give this a try! I’ve recently been playing around with my Droid X phone and have been pretty happy with the photos I’ve taken. Very clear and detailed. Check out this one of my vicious dog eating cat! http://s18.postimg.org/f4swhyu7c/2013_03_24_16_57_04.jpg

    What other camera apps would you recommend?

    Thanks for posting, Martin!

      Panorama is good, but with Photosphere it may be unnecessary. I like Paper Camera for effects, Lapse It Pro for time lapse (get a tripod) and SpeedShutter for quick clicking.
