    In light of iOS 5's GM status, what are the major reasons to even buy a camera app like Camera+?

    Have you not used Camera+ before? I am loving the idea of a new iPhone 4S with iOS 5 and will be getting it the day it comes out. It's great that the camera app can now crop, rotate and reduce redeye along with adjust AE/AF, but it can't do all the other things that Camera+ (and many other apps) can do, such as, all of the FX (Sepia, Cyanotype, Redscale, Grunge, etc. 36 FX in all) all of the Scene Modes (Clarity, Backlit, Cloudy, Sunset, etc.) all of the Borders (Film, Sprockets, Offset, etc.) you get the idea. This is what apps are for.

    Great that Apple added a couple of cool basic features to their Camera, but 3rd Party apps provide SO much more.

    Example:

    The filters in Camera+ are excellent, still worth buying.

    Does Camera+ or any other application utilizes the IP4's sensors to tell you if the phone is levelled? Even using the grid, I find that I still can't often get the horizons to be levelled.

    I use Camera+for the simple fact that I can control the point of focus and the exposure separately. The native app combines the two, leading to washed out or underexposed photos.

    A well exposed photo makes HDR redundant, in most cases. The built in camera app makes it a necessity. No thanks.

    (Ynd no, Camera+ doesn't have a leveling feature that I'm aware of. You might ping the devs with the suggestion if it's important to you, though.)

    Camera+ does not have a level but ProCamera does. I have both apps and prefer the interface of Camera+.

    One thing that I did in iOS4 was I would set the native camera app to movie mode and if I wanted to take photos I'd use Camera+. If I wanted to take video I'd use the built in app. Since Camera+ doesn't offer a video mode the phone would remember the setting and it was very quick to get to either video or photo. With the speed of iOS5 it doesn't seem to be an issue now

    I want the feature now and if they were to implement it, it'll take months!
