Though the Apple iPhone has a decent camera, I wish I could say the same about the pre-installed iPhone Camera app. My biggest grudge against Apple’s iPhone Camera app is that it’s simply impossible to take multiple shots at a high shutter speed. I did a quick search on Apple App Store and found the Fast Camera app which claims to be able to take up to 800 pictures per minute. Here’s how things panned out with the Fast Camera app.
Once installed, the Fast Camera app launches the camera on your iPhone as shown below. There’s a start button on the bottom right corner to start clicking pictures. The bottom left counter shows you the number of pictures clicked in real time. The top left corner button takes you to App Settings while the top right buttons let you flip cameras and enable/ disable Flash.
Once you click ‘Start’, the Fast Camera app starts clicking photos faster than you can imagine. The ‘Start’ button toggles to ‘Stop’ and once you press it, the app shows you the number of pictures clicked and a button to review them as shown below.
The Review screen lets you select images which you’d like to delete and lets you save the others to your iPhone’s camera roll.
You can select the images you want and hit ‘Done’ – the Fast Camera app will prompt you that unselected images will be deleted.
Alternatively, you can choose the images you want to delete as shown below.
All in all, I’m mesmerized by the speed of the Fast Camera app. The only limitation – I changed the app settings but when I closed and opened the app again, they were lost – definitely not something a user would appreciate. Also, it would be nice to have a Help or a Getting Started screen for beginners – I was actually scared when I hit ‘Start’ and the app started going all bang bang.
None the less, Fast Camera app is a brilliant alternative to the native iPhone camera app. If you don’t believe me, check out the video demo or just try it out yourself while it’s free!
