When the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were released in September, there were plenty of features that left people drooling over the cameras: specifically, the secondary telephoto option on the iPhone 7 Plus. Couple that with iOS 10's ability to shoot and save RAW images in third-party apps, and it's not hard to see why the iPhone continues to be one of the most widely-used cameras in the market.
Several third-party apps have added support for the dual-lens system and RAW, and now the inimitable Camera+ has done the same: The Version 9 update brings iPhone 7 Plus dual lens support, RAW shooting and editing, and haptics majicks – pretty awesome, huh?
Dual lens support
You're now able to explicitly choose to shoot with the wide angle or telephoto lens so you can get exactly the lens you desire for the given shooting situation. If you prefer the simplicity of not having to think about those sorts of things like lens pickin', you can just keep the lens switcher set to Duo mode and let your iPhone 7 Plus do its magic.... we've also enabled you to choose precisely which lens you want.
If you want a bit more control over the post-production look of your images when shooting with your iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 7, or iPhone 7 Plus, you can now enable RAW support in the Camera+ app. While RAW images may take up a bit more room on your phone than a standard JPEG or TIFF, shooting RAW makes editing a lot more precise and controlled. Speaking of editing...
After you snap your RAW photos, you can easily edit them in the Camera+ app. This means altering contrast, saturation, color, cropping, brilliance… you name it!
You can… edit… using Camera+'s suite of editing tools like The Lab and apply our various filters to them. But now, with RAW thrown into the picture (bad pun'd), you have the opportunity to "re-develop" the pics fresh from your camera using a new suite of editing tools we call the RAW Lab.
Haptic feedback brings new life to elements like the Camera+ shooting control wheels and once you've experienced it, you'll definitely miss it when you're using a device that hasn't been blessed with this very cool, new feature.
