Photography apps that allow you to add filters to the photographs later, or post editing, normally will degrade the quality of the photograph and the EXIF, which holds the photograph’s data, might be erase. Pudding Camera photography app uses real-time filters, which simply means what you see on your screen is what you get. Therefore, the quality of the photographs will not be affected and the EXIF data of the photographs still remains. This app also allows you to control the amount of lightings by adjusting the level of exposure (-2.0 to 2.0) before you capture your photos. If you prefer ‘geotagging’ your photographs so you know where is the location this photograph was taken, there is an option for that.

My favorite camera is the Motion 2×2, a 37mm with 4:3 aspect ratio which mimicked a camera will 4 lens. This camera takes 4 consecutive photographs at about 2 seconds interval and the 4 photographs will be framed together into 1 photograph.

And My Conclusion …

Some people might prefer post-editing apps because of the flexibility to adjust options such as colour saturation and levels of contrast. For myself, this app has all the basic camera effects. With it’s minimalistic and sleek interface, the Pudding Camera is a easy to navigate photography app with beautiful filters and the best part is …. it is totally free.
