Camera Fun Pro Review

Camera Fun Pro Review

Jul 6, 2011

Let’s be honest, few of us use our phone’s camera for taking serious, life-changing photos. We use them to capture little memories instead, stupid and fun things that we’ve done or seen that we want to show off to our families and friends. Or for taking oddly angled social networking photos to show off our best pout-y faces.

Camera Fun Pro allows you to add filters to any photos that you take, and any photos that are in your gallery, to make them that little bit crazier. Anyone who’s used an image editing program before will be familiar with the sort of filters available, which range from one that makes your pictures look like they’re on canvas, to one that makes them look like they’ve been drawn with chalk.

Other than selecting which filter to use, you have no real control over the finished picture. For an app that describes itself as “pro”, Camera Fun Pro is a little light on customisation options. You can turn the flash on and off, but there doesn’t appear to be anyway to alter the opacity, brightness, sharpness or any other facets of the filter.

It’s a shame, because Camera Fun Pro is a really easy to use app. You point your camera, select your filter and get snapping. The results are pretty good as well, offering you plenty of variety for hardly any loss in quality.

Camera Fun Pro is a decent little app, but one thing it’s not is “pro”. For the price, you’d expect to be able to tweak the look and feel of your pictures, and it’s an omission that knocks the app’s score down. It’s great that the filter is added before you take the photo, and the quality of the photos is impressive, but if you want to call yourself pro, you’ve got to go a bit further than this.

Camera Fun Pro Review Rundown

8
User Interface - Easy to use, although a little sparse when it comes to menus.
7
Functionality - Does what it sets out to do, but needs a few extra layers of user input to make it great.
8
Performance - No slowing or stuttering during the review, even with the more complex filters.
7
Usefulness - Has its uses, but would be a far more attractive prospect with more user input.
7.5
Overall - A decent enough photo app that, with a little bit more work, could be a must buy.
