Pocket Snapper Review – Much more than a camera
App Type: Photography
Another one of those camera apps to show you how underutilized the default camera app is, Pocket Snapper gives you the feel of handling a profession DSLR camera on your mobile device. Plus, the app lets you live the dream of being a professional photographer.
To start off, Pocket Snapper is in its bare essence a fancier version of the default camera app. Here, a frame simulating what you would see in a professional camera is superimposed onto whatever your lens is up against, giving the impression of said camera. I like how the developers took pains to make sure that this was not just superficial, and that the superimposed slider at the bottom was actually able to let users zoom in on images just like a real DSLR camera would. The downside would be that images are plain and do not come with filters unlike other camera apps. However, users can edit their photos after they are done taking them through the app.
The awesome part about Pocket Snapper lies in the iModel function which plays a video of an actual model posing for a photo shoot while users snap away at her. The interesting part lies in the fact that users have to physically move and tilt their devices around to maneuver around the video for the best angle. This makes the whole experience a very realistic simulation of a professional photo shoot. In the same iModel menu you can snap photos of videos, either older ones from the Camera Roll or videos taken from within Pocket Snapper. Now you can get beautiful still frames from moving objects (a child playing, your pet, a car.)
All in all, Pocket Snapper is a great app. While the app is not particularly fantastic in terms of raw photography, its true charm lies in the simulation feature that turns a regular picture app into a something much more exciting. A free app, don’t wait any longer. Get it on the app store now!
