iPhone app: A camera bag in your pocket

Rarely will I purchase an iPhone app. So rare, in fact, that I’ve only purchased one: CameraBag.

If you have low expectations for a cell phone camera like I do, then you’ll find the iPhone camera to be mostly serviceable, especially since it’s always there when you need it. But there are times when a photo just needs a little something extra.

Enter the CameraBag app. Do you love your Holga? Now  you have a Helga filter in your bag. Or a Lolo. Or a Polaroid. Wanna make your office look a little more Yosemite? Just apply a little Ansel.

My favorite is the Helga for it’s saturation and vignetting. Least favorite so far is the infrared – I guess I’m a little spoiled with the real thing.

One of the great things about this app is that it is non-destructive. You can take a photo and apply the filter without ruining the original. That means you can experiment and apply different filters to the same image as many times as you want.

Price was $2.99 when I bought it and I consider it money well spent. It’s currently on a holiday sale, however, for 99 cents (don’t know how long that will last, though).
