    I know there were a lot of people disappointed when it was pulled, so I just wanted to mention that I just got notification that Camera+ is back in the App Store!

    It's updated to version 2.0, and has a bunch more features. I'm pretty excited, and those that missed out previously now have a chance to pick it up. I wonder if it stores EXIF data now. That was one of the major features I was hoping to get eventually. The new filter pack is pretty impressive as well, although it's $0.99. I like the pinhole effect.

    List of new features:
    What’s new
    1. removed “SLR” screen for a simpler user interface
    2. reworked much of the user interface so that it’s more unified and much more intuitive
    3. improved the usability of zoomed photos in the Lightbox
    4. improved usability of Touch Focus/Touch Exposure
    5. significantly sped-up startup time
    6. increased menu size and included it on both camera screen and Lightbox
    7. added shooting preferences panel
    8. improved operation of stabilizer
    9. added timer shooting mode
    10. added burst shooting mode
    11. added white balance lock
    12. Touch Exposure now works on iPhone 4 and 4th generation iPod touch front facing camera
    13. improved most effects
    14. improved most borders
    15. improved most scene modes
    16. added Cyanotype effect
    17. added Tailfins effect
    18. added Depth of Field effect
    19. added in-app purchasing of effects, with the first being the “I ♥ Analog” effects pack
    20. added Diana effect (in I ♥ Analog pack)
    21. added Silver Gelatin effect (in I ♥ Analog pack)
    22. added Helios effect (in I ♥ Analog pack)
    23. added Contessa effect (in I ♥ Analog pack)
    24. added Nostalgia effect (in I ♥ Analog pack)
    25. added Expired effect (in I ♥ Analog pack)
    26. added XPRO C-41 effect (in I ♥ Analog pack)
    27. added Pinhole effect (in I ♥ Analog pack)
    28. added Chromogenic effect (in I ♥ Analog pack)
    29. grouped borders into Simple and Styled sets
    30. added Light Mat and Dark Mat borders
    31. added Round White and Round Black borders
    32. added Offset border
    33. renamed Grit border to Light Grit and added Dark Grid border
    34. added Viewfinder border
    35. added Old-Timey border
    36. added Film border
    37. added Sprockets border
    38. added Darken scene mode
    39. added Cloudy scene mode
    40. added Shade scene mode
    41. added Fluorescent scene mode
    42. added 3×2 crop
    43. added rotation of photos
    44. added flipping of photos
    45. added sliders to effects for adjusting effect amount
    46. added exporting geolocation and metadata when saving to the Camera Roll
    47. added a function to save and leave photos in Lightbox
    48. added a function to commit all edits in photos
    49. added a function to copy photos with edits committed
    50. added a function to copy photos without edits
    51. added a function to undo all edits in photos
    52. added a function to remove geolocation in photos
    53. added photo info panel which shows photo metadata, editing recipe, and map with photo geolocation

    Major bugs fixed
    • fixed a bug in which the keyboard wouldn’t appear when posting to Twitter
    • fixed a potential crash when posting multiple photos to Facebook
    • fixed a bug where no previews were shown for photos taken with Camera+ and later imported into iPhoto or Aperture
    • pasting photos now preserves the photo’s metadata

    And many, many, many minor enhancements and bug fixes.

    They didn't have a choice. That's the reason it was pulled in the first place.

    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.

    Camera+ has a Burst Mode -- it saves in low-res VGA resolution, though. ProCamera does not have a burst mode.

    ProCamera saves directly to your camera roll. Camera+ saves to it's own lightbox.

    To get the best shot in-camera, I think the latest ProCamera is the best camera in the app store and has a slight edge over Camera+ in that regard. 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.

    Especially after the awesome 3.0 update, ProCamera is my go-to camera app.

    I just got Camera+ and so far I really like it! It's the first camera app I've purchased for my iPhone. I love the ability to use two fingers to adjust the focus and the exposure. It sounds like Camera Pro is also a nice app, but for now I'll stick with Camera+.

    This is a biggie.

    I like Camera+ but having to wait for it to save all the photos is a pain. I stopped using it pretty quickly for that reason alone.

    I'll check out ProCamera.

    Camera+ is an awesome app, and completely replaced the native Camera app. I've produced what could be said as some really professional looking pictures which have come out brilliantly. I understand that some don't like th fact it saves to it's own lightbox, however I like to see that as a way of filtering pictures before saving them to your Photo Album. That way, all pictures in your album will look impressive and stunning.

    On first impressions of ProCamera it seems to reflect more of an SLR type interface, but yet to test it more.

    I'm undecided which camera app to try. ProCamera or Camera+.

    I really don't like that Camera+ doesn't save to the regular iPhone photo album and has its own "lightbox". From what I've heard, photo saving takes a long time also.

    But it sounds like ProCamera doesn't have as many features as Camera+ in terms of effects and editing?
