Less noise

When compared to other camera apps, I see less noise when I take pictures with ISO and shutter speed manually controlled.
Good one.

'really like the app, but have a few questions'

'is there something preventing the application of filters to raw shooting mode? i\'ve tried all manner of things so far,
secondary jpg, in raw mode, and the only thing that seems to result in filtered photos is doing just jpg. \n\ni really enjoy
the interface and find there\'s some issue when us

'Simple and exactly what it should be'

'When I got my phone this app was given to me on a deal when I signed up for Apple ID. So I decided to give it shot. And this is
exactly what I hoped it would be.\nI have an iPhone 6 Plus so I don’t have a low-light camera built into my phone. This app uses
the exact built-in camera on the phone b

purchasing the black and white filters but the support team at Obscura helped iron those out quickly.'

'Amazingly easy to use; updates not all good'

'This is the best camera app I’ve used. So many manual adjustments and customizations are available, yet it’s still easy to
understand and use. Love that you can shoot and change settings with one hand.\n\nLibrary viewer is a different story. Initially I
thought it was great giving details on pi

'Great start!!'

'Seems to be a great app so far! Seems to have some odd scrolling glitches. Being able to custom resize photos would make this

'It works, after updates'

'This is an update.\n\nI downloaded this app when Apple offered it free, because I was heading off on an overseas trip and I
wanted a good travel camera without carrying a camera. I was disappointed that it crashed on my iPad Pro and I made the trip
without this app.\n\nWhen the developer reached o

'Small Issues with purchases'

'This app is great, awesome. However I’ve been facing some issues with my purchased filters, I’ve had to restablish my
purchases once and again to unlock them. I hope this issue could be fixed.'

'I love this app and I would have given five stars, but I am not fully satisfied when it’s time to edit A filter. It makes me
purchase again just to be able to apply the filters I have already purchased. Maybe I’m missing something.'

After the update

Before the most recent update it was a 6 second load time. With this update it’s around 2-3 seconds. It’s an improvement but
still too slow. Other then the load time the app is sold. Fast, great controls and easy to use.

Great workability, . . . but . . .

. . . it takes a full 15 seconds for it to open. You can lose a lot of photographs in 15 seconds. This only started with the
update. FIX IT! (And yes I did delete it and reinstalled. Same problem.)

I wanted to like it better than I did

I like that the app responds quickly when the shutter button is pressed and the fact that everything is accessible with one hand.
However, the main thing that I like is having some filters to use with my pictures. You can even apply them to pictures that were
already taken.

However, some issues w

Great features, slick UI. Can pinch zoom on iPad 👍, cannot pinch zoom on iPhone XR 👎 (despite un/installs, reset settings,
usual procedure).

Library access issues

Recently the photos don’t get saved and it gives error message: No Library access. What is the error in the app for my iPhone?
Can you let me know the fix?

Separate manual focus and auto can be a hassle

This app does appear to work, but for some reasons the auto focus does not affect the manual ring.
Your dial would still start at macro zoom, not where auto left off, which means you cannot tap to focus -> make minor adjustments.

Filter Problems

I've liked the app so far but am very frustrated! I've purchased all the filter packs but it doesn't confirm it on the Analogue
filters. It says I've already purchased them but they appear still locked in the camera! I'd give the app 5 stars if I could
resolve this issue.

In App Purchase Issues

Just like another user stated, having an issue trying to restore previously purchased filters. When one clicks on the option to
restore, absolutely nothing happens.
