iOS 5’s New Camera App Will Delight You. Here’s Our In-Depth Preview of the New Features


Once you have your picture edited and ready for the finalizing, all you have to do is hit “Save” and then choose “Save to Camera Roll” to make all of your edits finalized.


And of course, once you’ve gotten your masterpiece edited to the point of satisfaction you’re going to need to share it with all the entire world. iOS 5’s Twitter integration makes photo sharing so much easier than ever before. With the “Tweet” button right next to emailing and texting, Apple has made it easier than ever to share your photos with a huge audience.



The new and improved Camera app in iOS 5 is nothing earth shattering, but it’s still a great upgrade from the old model. Apple has added all the basic things you need to take a picture quicker, edit it, and send it out to the world in the easiest ways possible. It’s a step up from what the old app was capable of, and while the enhance feature isn’t as powerful as some filters in other camera apps like Instagram and Camera+, it gets the job done well. And when everything “just works” as advertised, how can you complain?

    iPad 2 is getting it and it works the exact same way

  • Kevin Olson

    I have a few developer UDID registration spots left if anyone is interested,

    iosdevaccess at gmail dot com

     You can then give iOS 5 a try. A small fee applies

    I have some Apple Developer UDID registration spots left for purchase if 
    anyone is interested, you could then give iOS 5 a try.

    its actually pretty cool on the ipad2

  • Jokokhok

    Sweet, thanks guys.  Looking forward to it.

    What I’m wondering is, is there an option to remove the geotag before sharing to twitter? Or does it do that automatically? I guess it doesn’t, and I don’t find that too appealing. I would share my location automatically.

    It’s funny when people review the new camera app and fail to talk about its best addition: AE lock. With this, now you can expose your picture anyway you want. Your picture is not just a by-product of what the sensor sees, but you.
    And I think double-clicking home button for camera icon is confusing. Why don’t Apple *just* add it there?

  • Felfac

    You said ehanced was turned off in both

  • prof_peabody

    When you save the edited picture to the camera roll … does it overwrite the old one or create a new edited pic?

  • Bob Whipple

    I assume they didn’t because of the fear that users would often touch the button inadvertently… opening the camera app instead of the home screen. 

  • cheesy11

    i love it love it love it, it looks brilliant, no seriosuly it does

  • appledrunk

    This is pretty slick and the way it should have been for awhile. A few apps already made use of the volume button as the shutter and Apple made the developers change it! Guess they saw the error in their ways.. Lots of UDIDs available at appledrunk dot com for those interested in trying out the iOS 5 beta.

    whoops. typo

  • [Deleted User]

    it overwrites the original

  • kc! Bradshaw

    Is it possible to use camera+ as the default camera instead of apple’s app? (ie: from the homescreen lock, can I have it automatically jump into camera+ instead?)

  • [Deleted User]

    no. That’d be really nice too

  • huyett

    They have a print option? I’m i missing something?? That hasn’t been part of iOS has it???

  • Sean Liu

    There will probably be a jailbreak app to do that

  • Wes

    yes…for a while now actually. It’s called AirPrint. Send the photo wirelessly to select printers and it prints. Haven’t done it yet but it’s pretty awesome
