Weve completely rebuilt Camera Genius to let you capture great photos and videos with ease!

+ Take Videos (iPhone 3Gs, iPhone 4, iPod Touch ONLY)
What camera would be complete without a video mode? Capture videos and even zoom in and out on your subjects while recording, just like a real video camera! *

+ Camera Zoom (Up to 6X digital zoom)
Now zoom in on subjects to get that close-up shot. Combine it with our anti-shake for even clearer zoomed shots.

+ Timer & Sound Capture
A timer lets you set up timed group photos. You can set the interval between 2 and 300 seconds. Just tap the numbers when the timer pulls up to change the timing interval. You can even set it to repeat mode to capture photos automatically. The sound capture setting allows you to take photos by detecting noise to snap your photo.

+ Full Screen Camera Button
The big photo button makes it easy to capture those photos without having to try and tap the tiny photo button, potentially missing that candid shot. Just tap the screen to take the photo.

+ Prevent Blurry Photos with Anti-shake
Anti-shake stabilization helps eliminate those blurry photos caused by excessive iPhone camera movement.

+ Improve Photo Composition with Guides
Camera guides help you compose and align photos based on known photographic principles. Eliminate those crooked photos before they happen.

+ Burst Mode Shooting
Take 3 shots in rapid succession. Great for getting that action shot!

+ Camera Manual
Lots of hints on the best way to take photos on your iPhone. Read the quick tips to greatly improve your photos.

+ Review your photos
A new user interface makes reviewing your photos a breeze. Camera Genius releases another first: adjustable sized thumbnails! Use the slider to decide how many photos you want to see at once. Also included is a full-screen slide show and the ability to pan and zoom around your photos. All photos are saved to the camera roll for quick syncing with your computer.

+ Edit your photos.
What photo app would be complete without the ability to edit your photos? We have over 20 great One Step filters! From Grunge, 70s style, Lomo and Cross Processing to Flash, Cinema, and Pseudo HDR we have got you covered! If thats not enough we have 20 Adjustment Filters to give you fine control over hue, contrast, brightness, etc. Crop your photo to improve its composition. We also have custom borders you can apply to any filter. All filters can be stacked to give you nearly infinite options with the look of a photo. Turn a drab photo into a work of art with a couple of clicks.

+ Share your photos.
Need to get that photo or video onto Facebook, Twitter, Flickr? We’ve got you covered! Now post your photos and videos directly to Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Picasa, MobileMe, Tumblr, YouTube, Clipboard and Email. You can even post to multiple services at once!

If photos are not showing in Album View.
Go to your Settings icon on the iPhone. Select General > Location Services. Make sure "Genius" is switched on.

* Video Mode and Tap to Focus & Exposure is not available on the 3G iPhone.

Pros and cons of Camera Genius app for iPhone and iPad

Camera Genius app good for

Excellent camera, filling the gaps in the standard iphone camera, if we could choose the color of the captions it would be better though
Everything you want for a camera app and they keep adding new features to it!
The anti-shake feature alone is well worth the money...good stable application, I highly recommend it
This is a fabulous high quality image app that is a "must have" in your photographic folder.
This version has officially knocked it out of the park and it works great on my 4s I was pretty overwhelmed with the ton of professional features and found the camera manual to really help me to take some awesome pictures. The new features work great, love the flash button.
So far its giving me good quality pics and i can take many pictures at once even though it continues to download as i continue to take more. One of my friends took pictures of me and was amaized when she snapped 10 pics one after another. I love it so far. I would give it 5 stars

Some bad moments

It doesnt work with Koredoko or Photo Map apps. As fotos tiradas com essa app não funcionam com Koredoko or Photo Map.
Please show gravity direction on the screen! Please show gravity direction on the screen! Please show gravity direction on the screen!
If you do any editing in the app you cant save at full resolution. Instead your photo is saved at sub 1,000 pixels. Totally unforgivable failure for a supposed camera replacement app. Spend the extra dollar (or wait for a sale) and get Camera+.
I bought this app almost a year ago, and it was a decent camera app in the beginning. However, the most recent update (or perhaps iOS 4.2) has rendered it useless. Besides taking forever to save pictures to the camera roll (which stops you from taking additional photos), there is also literally a ten second lag before the photo actually takes -- even when stabilization is turned off! I also have over 6GB of space available, so storage is not the problem. Today I was trying to take photos of my son learning to walk, and I pretty much missed some once-in-a-lifetime photos no thanks to this app. I have since downloaded "Camera +" instead. Well see how that goes At least Camera+ actually takes photos when I tap the button... Imagine that!
Dont join the million of users who have this crappy app. Its a gamble for anybody; and when these reviews say the videos load slowly, they mean SLOW. I took one video where the zoom worked fine, and then another to test it out once more. When I looked at the videos, the second one completely lost its zoom! After that the app went completely screwy, and the third video didnt even save! I cant do anything on the app now (literally, it wont even let me take a photo) ... Cmon guys D: ! I want my buck back now :(
Video crashes on iPhone 6 iOS 9.1...seems developer has moved on to something else. It was a good app until I upgraded phone.
