Viewfinder Classic

Le Camera Cie
[ This app is no longer available for download ]

ViewFinder Classic recreates the experience of a rangefinder camera on the iPhone.

IMPORTANT: recommended devices: iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, but *not* the iPhone 5 yet (see below)

The application features a full-screen viewfinder, with a set of framelines for the classic 35 and 50mm focal lengths. It offers a minimalist interface, with a shutter and an exposure setting button, similar to the simple manual controls of rangefinder cameras.

Main Features
. Fullscreen Viewfinder, no shutter blackout
. Compose photographs with frame lines
. Select 35mm or 50mm frames to find the right angle of view
. Set focus manually or automatically
. Use the integrated light meter to adjust exposure
. Simple design, minimalist interface
. Pictures just go to the camera roll

Note: application not recommended for iPad2 or iPod Touch 4G which have limited camera sensors.
