  • Depth...

    By fridaknight
    The stock camera does the same or even better job. Bought it cause i also wanted raw and the other features. Anything else is fine. Good thing is that you can can take a photo with depth and edit it in focos. The stock camera need to be in a certain distance for the depth to work. So it’s a plus. Gave it a couple of more tries comparing different pictures using depth and for the features you're getting just stick with the stock camera.
  • Useless. Crashes each time.

    Crashes each time with depth and portrait enabled. Didn’t save a single picture. That’s the mode I spent $5 on this useless app.
  • So far...... so good but still testing

    By Prmath
    Very pleased in the testing stage
  • Easily the best RAW camera

    By maxblack113
    When it comes to RAW camera apps, I’ve tried them all. No exaggeration. Literally all of them. This one is by far the best. All the others are either missing a feature, or run very poorly. Halide has the best of both worlds. All the manual controls you want, with the stability of a stock app. Crazy fast. Crazy useful. Crazy beautiful design. I’ve officially switched from ProCam 5 which has been my go-to for over a year now.
  • Underwhelming

    By sunonymous
    The lack of zoom was a surprise. Secondly, the focus peaking doesn’t do a great job with faces it seems. So in combination with the lack of zoom while taking photos, it is unclear whether my manual focus is doing a good enough job. None of the tutorials/faqs available thus far do a good enough job to resolve these concerns. Considering the app costs a significant amount, I would have loved the option to test the app before paying so much. :(
  • Almost perfect

    To be 100% perfect this app needs instagram technology for 1 camera portrait mode
  • Almost...

    By Aidan McLaughlin
    I want to love this app. And if it wasn’t for the the lack of a few key features, it would be perfect. Firstly, it needs HDR. This, is the largest block for me being able to use this over the default camera app. After that, my complaints are mostly suggestions: rework the library, maybe change it to the default photos app. Secondly, add manual focus for the depth mode, and finally, if you can, add Live Photos. Despite my complaints, if the company continues to provide updates, then I would consider this app money well spent.
  • Great App but missing a key feature

    The app works as promised but is missing 16:9 photo mode.
  • 🚨

    By Greg.ni
    My favorite feature of this app is what it doesn’t do I like that it doesn’t do video or have filters it’s ok but it’s way to basic not worth the money at all Doesn’t do the golden ratio grid it doesn’t have flat level and the meta-data feature doesn’t even tell you how much megabytes the photo is taking up Camera-M is the better choice as far as features & value
  • Not so good, kinda confusing

    By bobcatbobcat
    This just confuses me every time I try to use it, this software and just don’t think alike.
