Improved Camera+ Returns to the App Store; Magic Shutter Debuts

iPhone 4 camera enthusiasts have two more tools for enhancing their images.  A much improved version of Camera+ has triumphantly returned to the App Store and Magic Shutter gives budding photogs the chance to try their hands with light painting.

Camera+ was pulled from the App Store back in August for the functionality of using the iPhone’s volume button as a shutter.  The app has been reinstated without the hidden feature and now boasts not only bug fixes but over 53 improvements.  Nearly half of those listed are effects or borders, but options like touch focus and exposure, white balance lock, timer mode, and burst mode are also included.  The app is being offered at the introductory price of 99 cents and is compatible with the iPhone and iPod Touch running iOS 3.1 or later.

Magic Shutter enables the user to take long exposure and repeated exposure photos.  An exceptional feature is the live video preview of the shot.  You can watch the light streak across the screen and tap the shutter at precisely the right time.  The app is low res, saving photos at 960×720.  The developer is promising an update within the next month.  It‘s a pricey app at $2.99 and is compatible with the iPhone and iPod Touch running iOS 4.0 or later.  A tutorial video is available.

Check out screenshots after the break.
