Review: EdgeCam allows you to take edge photos, laplacian, and sepia filtered images

EdgeCam is a unique camera tool that uses edge detection and filters to create photos on your iOS device. The result is one of five different options that can greatly change how you see a specific image or event; and while the images themselves are not always clearly defined, they are an interesting addition to many photography app libraries.

When you open EdgeCam for the first time, the app will default to medium edge detection, showing the edges of every object in the room. This view can be disarming at first, but as you move the camera you'll see … Read more

Review: Night Video Cam 2 allows you to take nocturnal videos

Night Video Cam 2 is a useful video tool for low-light or outdoor situations when recording video on your iPhone or iPad.

When you launch Night Video Cam 2, there are a few options on the screen to choose from. You can see how much battery you have left, the total space you can record on your phone, the current recording time, and the … Read more

Review: DelayCam streamlines taking time-delayed photos with your iOS device

DelayCam is a straightforward, easy-to-use camera app that includes an additional tool to delay the shot by five, ten, 15, or 30 seconds.

National Zoo's panda cam falls victim to government shutdown

The cutest victims of the government shutdown may well be the giant pandas at the Smithsonian's National Zoo in Washington, DC. Don't worry, the actual fuzzsters are just fine. It's our vicarious enjoyment of them that has taken a blow. The live panda cam has gone dark until Congress can sort out its budget issues.

The panda cam has been a great pick-me-up at any time, but especially so now that mama panda Mei Xiang has a cute little cub on display. The baby was born on August 23. Cam-watchers have seen it grow from a nearly hairless little stub of a cutebug into a pint-sized critter with all the right panda markings.… Read more

Review: Me Too Cam is a familiar, even copycatting app

Me Too Cam is yet another in a long line of bare-bones photo editing apps that provides Aviary tools, a rudimentary interface, and some sharing tools. While the resulting app is better than the built-in camera on your iPhone, it does nothing that dozens of other free iPhone apps don't already do, and it doesn't look very good doing it.

When you open Me Too Cam, you can start taking photos right away or load one from your library. After taking a photo, you can apply one of a couple dozen frames. These frames are often overly large … Read more

Moving time-lapse vid of One World Trade Center construction

Review: CamMe allows you to control your camera with gestures

CamMe is a photo taking app with a very special function in it that allows you to take self pictures or timed photos without having to set a timer. Instead the app uses gesture recognition on the front-facing camera combined with two very specific motions to take such images. The result is not perfect, but it solves a very real problem for a lot of users -- how to take selfies without holding the camera.

CamMe is designed for taking selfies so the tools here are focused almost entirely on the front-facing camera. You can flip the camera around to … Read more
