    I just bought an iPhone 4S. Are there such apps with the features below? *Can be seperate apps.
    1. "Professional" app? Ie. Changing aperature/shutter speed?
    2. Filters. Ex. Instagramish?
    3. Timelapse. with 1080p preferably and the ability to use slow shutter speeds.

    *sidenote: The iPhone 4S has a fixed aperture of f/2.4. As for an app that can simulate different apertures, I do not know...

    Camera+ is a good app for any iPhone photographer around. It's got a great interface with many options, and as a bonus, there's filters you can choose the intensity of. Pretty cheap, too.

    I actually didn't like Camera+ at all. I'm a big fan of hipstamatic, if you play around with the right lens/film combination you can get some really great photos.

    I dont like either camera + or Instagram, i don't like either of the retro filters, which are everywhere.

    Checkout Pictureshow, thats become my default photo app.:cool:

    Agreed - but I prefer the combination. Hipstamatic for the "authentic feel" (nevermind that the app is pure emulation of analog cameras :D), there's something about not being able to apply the best looking filter afterwards that just feels more real.

    With that in mind, sometimes I feel that the square format Hipstamatic produces in combination with the obligatory lenses which do alter a photo a great deal, I think it can seriously ruin a photo. Especially wide views which benefits from widescreen format. For that, I use Camera+ with the golden ratio crop.

    There's reason to have them both on your homescreen.

    I like ProCamera for its independently adjustable focus and exposure zones, white balance lock, built in "ProLab", "ProFx", and "ProCut" editors, rapid fire, zoom, anti-shake options..

    I also like AccuSmart Camera very much for it's wonderful post-processing enhancement / correction (not special effects). My "GoTo" camera app; I prefer it when I don't need the independent zones in ProCamera.

    Film Lab has MANY MANY film emulations.

    Iris has a very large selection of adjustable effects to chose from.

    I wish there was a faster way to get to your camera app of choice (Hipstamatic camera+ etc). By the time you've turned your phone on, swiped and entered your pin, gone to the location on your phone with the camera app and launched it, the moment has passed.

    I just want to be able to launch it straight from the lock screen without even having to enter my passcode.

    Camera Plus Pro is great, but after I get the iPhone 4s I'll probably just stick with the camera app and utilize other apps for post processing.

    2. If you want Instagram-esque filters, is there anything wrong with using Instragram? I'm sure that would be the closest to Instagram.

    3. There are a bunch of time lapse apps. Just search "Time Lapse" on the app store and you'll get a ton. Not sure which are the best, but the reviews should help, and they all get the job done.
