100 Cameras in 1 is a photographic filtering tool released by Stuck in Customs.
This application was designed by Trey Ratcliff who has been called the pioneer of HDR photography. HDR is High Dynamic Range and this is the bases of this tool. You use a photo that you have taken and then select one of one hundred filters to use on it (there are 10 categories with ten filters.)
Each of the filters has a strange or pretty name (like “a gentle feeling of warmth against my side” and “going back for more ice cream when no one is watching”), as I think trying to explain in words some of the filters would be near impossible.
Once the filter is selected, you can edit it slightly with a slide that reduces or increases the effect.
The user interface is very well designed and responsive.
One strange thing to mention the developer has decided to add game center support, and gives achievements out as you try new filters and upload photos. It really adds nothing, but somehow makes the app more fun to use.
On the upside:
- Excellent databases software
- Stand Alone, with Backup and Restore options
- Built in Security to protect your data
On the downside:
- You may still not find the perfect filter for your photo, but at least it gives you ideas on what may work.
- Not Universal, so the iPad has to work upsized
Overall, this is a wonder application for making your photos more exciting to look at, I made a slightly blurred photo that I though about deleting into something worth looking at. This application will appeal to those who want to be artistic with there photos, but someone looking for a photo manipulation tool to tweaking a photo will not find what they are looking for here.
