Developers have no control over what ISO is used... unfortunately it's not a simple matter of updating a camera app to support up to ISO 3200.

I was going to say, "maybe they just didn't update the ISO part yet in today's update" until I saw this...

... which I didn't know. What's confusing me at the moment is, that my favorite camera app, 645 PRO (which allows really great control of your camera settings) states that ISO is hardware dependent and that the iPhone 5 is 800(?) So I don't know...

No way to record video in the app

The reason I never fully switched to this app to replace the standard camera app was the inability to switch to video recording in the app and jumping back to the standard app always seemed like a kludge. I also find the proprietary lightbox to be a hassle.

Was this fixed finally?

iPad 2 camera was terrible. The newer one may not be the best camera to hold but the fact that you can really look at your photo after you take it on a larger screen is a good tool to help a beginner take better photos in the future.

I suggest using one of those Line Art or Old Video camera apps on the iPad 2. It brings new life to the iPad 2 camera since it excels in that kind of photography.

I've used camera+ primarily as an editing tool, but it seems to launch faster than the stock app on the 5, so I'm considering it as my go-to camera.
It's a fantastic app. I guess the only thing the Apple camera app has over this is panorama mode.

The main reason I use Camera + is it has the ability to turn the flash on before your take the picture. So if it's too dark to see what you're taking a picture of, it becomes a flash light.

The editing is cool too

Actually, it looks like I spoke too soon. Apple provides some properties developers can set to support the iPhone 5's "low light boost mode"... I just missed it because it's not fully documented yet:

It sounds crazy, but at the end of school year play, I could not believe the # of iPads people had out taking photos (and video). It was crazy.

One lady was annoying as she stood up, holding the iPad up like John Cusack in 16 Candles with the ghetto blaster, completely blocking a key view on the play. lol

The Camera+ app is a great deal for $0.99. There are a lot of editing options. Not a Photoshop replacement by any means, but as far as iOS photo editing apps go, it's quite useful.

Lenses such as this one are what you need for real photography!

I have a question about the iCloud sync. Won't that consume your iCloud storage space? If you've got iCloud, then you've got PhotoStream. Why not just use PhotoStream, which does not consume your iCloud storage, to access photos on multiple devices, and use it to move them back and forth? I know I must be missing something.

I use this app on my iPhone. It's pretty good now that the lightbox saving issue seems to be working. Not too happy having to buy it again though just because this version is 'Camera+ For iPad'

Looks like my original statement stands then; Camera+ was updated again TODAY (October 3, 2012) with the ability to use the 3200 ISO mode on the iPhone 5 when in a very low light situation...

I think you are incorrect. Look at the update for Camera+. It specifically says this update increases ISO on iPhone 5 and makes it work like the native camera app as far as sensitivity.



EDIT: OK I see I was late to the party and you already realized it was possible!

Camera+, Blend InstaCamera and Snapseed is one of three best camera apps I've bought! Would definitely recommend http://bit.ly/SQ98oG
