Android: Camera ZOOM FX, our pick for the best Android camera app, shed its $3 price tag today. The free version comes with some of the app’s best features, and the new “pro” version retains everything that made the original great.
The new free version of Camera ZOOM FX still boasts useful tools beyond the stock Android camera. You get tap to focus as well as tap to shoot, timelapse shooting modes, and a built-in editing tool to crop, rotate and resize photos. You get control over white balance and ISO levels, as well as a custom photo gallery, the option to save your photos in specific folders, and fun photo frames and filters.
If you buy the premium version, you get the whole laundry list of features we’ve come to love in the app, including burst shooting mode (up to 30 shots/second), a stable shooting mode that shows you an indicator when you’re steady enough for a clear picture, a shot timer, voice-activated shooting, tilt-shift shooting, the option to set any hardware button to take a photo, on-screen grids to help you compose your shot and silent shooting modes. The premium version retains the original’s pricing of $3.
If you’ve already purchased Camera ZOOM FX, you already have the premium version and you’ll get updates accordingly. The free version is still a richly featured camera, but it definitely serves as a gateway to the full version of the app. You can grab the free version now at the app below, and the premium version for $3. (You can get it half off via in-app purchase through the free version.)
