Another neat app to turn your iPhone into a better camera:
The functions are skewed towards tripod-mounted pictures, of course, and you get such smart additions as a bubble level at the top of the screen, grid lines, a press-anywhere shutter release and auto-save to let you keep shooting instead of waiting for a save between snaps.
As this is a tripod application, you also get an easy to adjust self-timer, a burst-mode (three shots) and best, a time-lapse function which will take pictures at intervals of anywhere between one second and two minutes.
I wish that this kind of thing could be done to real cameras. My Nikon DSLR, for example, could do with some easier to use software, especially if it was as nice-looking as Joby’s application.
Gorillacam is free, presumably as a great advertisement for Joby’s hardware, so you can go grab it even if you don’t own a GorillaPod.
I just did. I only had a chance to compare using a couple of shots, but find the feature on the 3GS that lets you choose where you want to focus gives better lighting than Joby’s app in a dark room. Still, I’m glad to add this to my photo arsenal on my iPhone and particularly like the level and self-timer functions. The user interface is well done and time-lapse sounds pretty cool too.
