Hello all,

I've returned to the iPhone world after 4 years and I was wondering what kind of apps you guys use and recommend for photographers, Apps for timelapse calculations, exposure calculator for long exposure times, apps for editing images and so on.

I would prefer free apps of course but if that is a must buy app that is not free.. through them in as well.

Thanks in advance!

645 PRO, which emulates medium format camera formats. It allows as much control as possible, nearing DSLR type control. The only thing you can't change is the aperture, as that's not variable on the iPhones. Other than that you can control everything else, such as ISO, shutter speed, white balance, focus, etc.

The highlights of its features for me are:
  • Save images as TIFF
  • Live histogram options
  • Independent focus, exposure and white balance locks
  • Spot or matrix metering

TPE (The Photographers Ephemeris) To see where the sun will be, at what time and date anywhere.

For long exposures, I have yet to find an app that is accurate and I have tried quite a few. I still refer to a table provided by Joel Tjintjelaar, which I have saved on my camera as a pdf, for easy reference.

For remote tethering, I use Canon's EOS Remote app, to check my focus, but I then shut the wifi off at the camera, before any captures.
