    NOMO. I'm a photographer by career and own way too many cameras - Sony A7rIII, Sony A7sII, Fuji XPro2, Panasonic GH5, you name it - I'm always the most excited to see what my shots look like with NOMO, especially when they're Portrait mode shots processed through the app. It's $20 for the full deal, but I personally think the iPhone (expecially the XS/XR with the dynamic range) is better suited to simulating fun disposable camera-style film snaps than it is trying to replicate a DSLR/mirrorless, and I'm constantly surprised at the results. Sure, I could do this stuff myself with a mix of Lightroom and maybe Photoshop to get the overlays, but the iPhone as a camera should be about speed and this keeps it quick.

    These shots I took are all iPhone XS Max, a mix of regular quick snaps and Portrait mode shots, all run through various NOMO cameras. With the $20 purchase it allows you to take photos in any app (stock for portrait mode, for example) and then process the finished photos through the "camera" of your choice.

    Here's a taste, but more in the gallery at the link below the picture.

    I use Camera+ as my alternative camera. Gives you a number of options beyond the stock camera but without being too complicated.

    generally speaking, the stock app is designed for "morons", someone who just want to point and shoot and be done, and alt apps are for people seeking a bit more control or features when shooting. depending on how "moron" you mean, you might be better off with the stock app. otherwise, you can also consider camera filter apps
