With the recent success of Lomography cameras, fisheye photos have been everywhere. But with the large price tag that comes with a Lomography camera, it’s much cheaper to just buy a toy camera app than to fork out the handful of money needed to purchase a fisheye camera and film. Fisheye Pro is an app that does everything a fisheye camera does- you can even change the film, lens and flash! And for only 99 cents, this app definitely has potential.
Fisheye Pro is set up just like a normal camera. There’s a shutter button and a multiple exposure button. You also have the option of switching to the front camera (or the back one!). You can also upload a photo from the camera roll on your device. There is a gallery with all the photos you’ve taken, and you can make the viewfinder of the camera larger with the full screen option. There’s also a help button if you ever forget where a control is.
In the settings menu, you can change the lens, film and flash. There are three different lenses to choose from- two lenses that give you a circular fisheye image, and a full-frame fisheye lens. There are 5 different colored ringflashes, consisting of colors such as red, green and multicolored. There are also 9 different vintage film options.
I love that in this app, there’s plenty of room for customization. There’s so many different options, that I had a hard time choosing which ones I was going to use. The app has very clear instructions, and it’s well worth the 99 cents. But, there was a couple of things I didn’t like about this app. First of all, I couldn’t find a zoom option, which bothered me a bit, because I tend to use zoom a lot. When using a photo from my camera roll, I was only able to zoom in. I wanted to zoom out, but I couldn’t. Second of all, the layout of the app is creative, but I found that if I wanted to snap a quick photo, it took way to long to change the flash, film and lens. It isn’t a problem if you’re just playing around with the app, but if you’re trying to capture an action shot, it gets difficult unless you take the photo with your device’s camera first, then edit it in Fisheye Pro.
For only 99 cents, this is an app with lots of potential. It has several different settings for personalization, but it could be a bit more user friendly. But, overall, for the price, it’s a great app!
