Krasnoyarsk, Russia, 2013/10/17 - Almalence, a leader in computational photography and mobile imaging, announces A Better Camera for Android - Almalence.com.
Since digital photography became mobile, a substantial portion of user audience prefers taking shots with phones and tablets rather than with specialized cameras. However, many functions digital cameras provide as standard require additional applications on Android devices.
Almalence, the developer of the top-10 HDR Camera+, blends several camera applications into one to provide a one-stop suite for all camera jobs on Android. A Better Camera makes HDR shots, creates panoramic photos, shoots in the Night Mode for quality photos when there's lack of light and provides options for manipulations with moving objects. Each function combines smart software algorithms and 100% employment of physical capabilities of the camera. For instance, HDR photos made by A Better Camera look like they were taken on a professional camera with professional post processing, and the Night Mode allows taking shots in insufficient lighting conditions, when the standard camera fails. Overall, ABC draws functionality of the built-in camera and quality of images it produces to the level of conventional digital cameras. In particular it offers such pro functions as group portrait shooting to take the best faces of each individual and combine them into a group photo; expo-bracketing for easy shots of contrast scenes or scenes with a high dynamic range; and the sequence shot option to make burst shots of action scenes and picture all stages of movement in a single image.
The convenient interface of the application allows to vary the amount of information on the screen and provides quick access to all functions. Even better, the interface is fully customizable.
A Better Camera is open source and thus enjoys the power of the entire Android developer community. Eugene Panich, CEO at Almalence, says: "ABC is a replacement for dozens of camera apps. It already includes HDR, panorama, video recording, night photos, and is open for third-party plugins extending its possibilities even more".
Pricing and availability
A Better Camera is available for Android version 4.0 or higher. The application is free with some of the features provided in trial mode and available from $0.99 for each or for $5.95 as a bundle.
