    browsing the appstore and seen this new app called "ColorRight". Claims it allows custom white balancing so we dont have to deal with washedout or underexposure pictures. Also has focus lock, flash lock, exposure lock and fill flash. Sorry no link im writing this on my ip4 but just search " ColorRight" in the appstore.

    I just dropped the $4.99. I'll let you know here what I find and I'll be posting a full review of the app on Life In LoFi within a few days.

    A $4.99 app with a white balance adjustment? Oh, yeah -- good or bad, this one's getting reviewed.

    Was my previous post about my first impressions of the app pulled or was it just never uploaded?

    No idea, but I would like to hear what you have to say about it.

    Here it is again. Updated, this time....

    --

    It's definitely a high-end app. The interface is for photographers who know their way around a camera.

    In less-than-ideal ambient light conditions, it sometimes added a yellow cast to the images -- almost as bad as the yellow cast from the early iPhone 4s. Other images taken with the standard camera as well as other apps didn't have this cast.

    Since first writing this, I've used the app under different lighting conditions and gotten better results.

    ProCamera's White Balance lock more easily creates more brilliant, accurate and natural-looking whites.

    I need to try the app under studio lighting conditions. I think this is probably where the app will function best.

    The iBal filter they advertise is not available yet. Setting the white balance with a sheet of paper as they describe is a little tricky. You've got to be very flexible in order to set the white balance without including the camera's shadow as well. White balance needs to be set before every session. For example, you can't set the white balance for generic sunlight and shoot for hours with it. Every time you exit the app, you need to reset. No always convenient.

    ColorRight isn't an everyday shooter. It might be a good studio shooter. I've got to dig out our lights and do some product shots.

    I can't recommend this app yet.
