    Camera+ is awesome. Glad to see it is back on the app store. Well worth $1.99 price.

    Camera+ is currently on sale for $0.99. I'm finally going to purchase it now that it's back after hearing all the recommendations.

    thanks for the responses guys. Seems like Camera+ is the overwhelming favorite. Don't forget though that while it was the #1 camera app about 2 months ago that both of these others have just been updated big time. Does anyone have them yet? Can anyone speak to Camera Plus Pro or ProCamera?

    I prefer Camera+ as well, and I'm glad it is back in the app store. I tried Instagram, and I wasn't as impressed. I just noticed that you can now adjust the amount each effect is applied to a photo. I don't remember if the old version did that or not, but I'm really happy to see that ability.

    Of the three I've only used Camera+ and it's great! The one downside is that there is no video mode, so you still have to use the default camera if you're looking to shoot some video. Other than that it really is the best camera app out there!

    Camera Plus Pro blows I wish I could have gotten my money back. I wanted to downloaded ProCamera but I accidentally downloaded Camera Plus Pro instead.

    Hipstamatic is another great app

    I'm on the Camera+ side as well. Just wish it had more filters.

    Another vote for Camera+ and they did add 9 more analogue-style filters in today's update (as an in-app purchase), along with a whole host of bug fixes and reworking of the interface (it's faster now and opens up right into shooting mode instead of the silly faux DSLR interface.)

    Camera+. I loved the app back before they pulled and today I saw that it had an update, and I'm in love all over again. The camera loads up a lot faster and I also like how the filters have percentages now. That's great.

    It also looks like they might add more filters, but you'll have to buy them within the app, this is a good way to support the application.

    Like someone earlier mentioned, it really suck that there's no video mode, I know it's mainly for pictures, but it would be nice to include a video mode like the native app so we can replace it.

    I personally prefer the default camera app. But between the 3 you've listed, I prefer Camera+. I've also tried Camera Plus Pro, but do not care for it.

    Does Camera+ take HDR photos? Has Apple even opened up the API for that yet or is it still private?

    Well I went with Camera+ (for now) and it's great. It opens INSTANTLY and is immediately ready to start snapping, and it doesnt take the time to process the pics until you go into the camera roll (which they call lightbox) which helps to take pics over ad over very quickly. Awesome. I can say that it is perfect except for the lack of video. I would not consider Camera Plus Pro in the running. It's between Camera+ and ProCamera.

    Both Camera+ and ProCamera are fast. They open in about the same time -- both about 3-4 seconds until you're ready to shoot from a cold start. Both will take photos as fast as you can shoot -- they are as fast as Apple Camera in that regard.

    I like the extra grids in ProCamera. I also prefer the three-level anti-shake that ProCamera has. ProCamera will shoot video. Pro Lab and Pro Cut are nice tools to have in a camera app.

    Camera+ has all of the features most people will use, though. Plus, the effects in Camera+ are much better than ProCamera.

    If you like to get the best shot, I think the latest ProCamera is the best camera in the app store. But for shooting and processing in one app, Camera+ is the best all in one Swiss Army knife photo app available. The new update improved an already great app.

    I'm guessing that most on here touting Camera+ have never used ProCamera. I purchased ProCamera well before Camera+. I tried it and it didn't last long on my springboard. When Camera+ came out, it was a much better app than almost any other camera app. With this latest round of updates, ProCamera far surpasses Camera+. It is quicker, save directly to the Camera roll if you like, has more editing options, offers video mode. These are the options that it has over Camera+. Maybe more but those are the main ones I use and notice. Neither one have HDR yet. Not sure why and hopefully they will both offer this. Even so, they both offer white balance adjustment and editing features which are better than HDR IMO. As I said, I own both but if I were spending money on one right now, go with ProCamera.

    Definitely agree with this. I use ProCamera for shots, and Camera+ for processing.

    Is there any way to apply a specific setting in Camera+ (scenery, text etc.) BEFORE taking a photo or are the effects and edits only applied after the photo is in the lightbox?

    Nope. It's all applied in post-processing in Camera+' Lightbox.

    I have and have tried all 3. None of them are horrible apps. But for straight up picture taking, my preference would be for either Camera+ or ProCamera. Just because of the raw speed. Beyond that, I'd have to play with the interfaces some more to see which I prefer.

    One feature I do love about Camera+ that I've not seen elsewhere yet is the ability to turn the flash on and leave it on. I've heard that's not as bright and using the flash properly. But I find it useful from time to time. Of course that advantage is undone by the need to save from the LightBox to the Camera Roll. I wish there was a way to skip that step.

    For post processing, I like Camera+. But it's just one of several go-to apps for that kind of thing. I don't like to limit myself to a single app. That seems very limiting. In fact, I like to run photos through multiple apps to give each a unique look. But I find myself coming back to Camera+ a lot.
