    I am thrilled by being able to control my photos. Raw quality is wonderful. I very much wish I could turn off the shutter sound in the app!
  • Image loading bug

    By sunianse
    I noticed that images do not appear instantaneously with their sharp quality. You have to zoom in and then out of the image for it to be high quality.
  • Great app, Great devs

  • Not as expected

    By I-Nabil
    Update: 9july2018 The last update was an app killer ! I have no clue what did they do, while taking the pic using manual focus with peaking it's ok, the result in photo album is catastrophic ! Out of focus & blurry ! For my previous review the developer requested to send them an email to their support team which I did including photos, other than automated reply confirming receiving the email they never responded at all !! I'm reducing from 2 stars to 1 star. The idea is good, but in reality it's not, specially there's a free apps that provide exactly same options ! You need to work more on focus, like add focus magnifier beside peaking, AR option is a mystery for me though I searched your website on how to use it no luck. I believe you can make manual controls more easy (have a look into app store for similar apps). Advise: have a think of rewriting the app from beginning & don't stick to old design. Think of making it better !
  • Excellent

    Very nice app for raw shooters who like program mode on their DSLR. The only missing feature is square aspect ratio. I shoot mostly for Instagram and having a square frame with rule of thirds lines would be nice.
  • Super interface with flexibility

    By Rubu1
    I have used a few of the more advanced iPhone camera GUIs and most are actually pretty decent but Halide is the best in terms usability, flexibility, stability in my opinion. Nice work!
  • I Like the Idea

    A camera is a simple thing, but most apps ignore that and try to add in lots of gimmicks. This one seems to want to keep it simple. It provides what you need to control the camera and the data and not much more. The “wow” features it adds are in support of fast manual capture, IE focus peeking, histogram, raw, and depth maps. It is missing HDR, but in the spirit of simplicity, perhaps just adding a quick automated bracket exposure would be nice so HDR can be done in post, just like the depth map for portrait mode. The app is fast, clean, and deceptively simple to use. It makes manual control simple and provides the tools to make it as fast as possible to see what you are doing when working manually. If you want fast and accurate manual exposure adjustment and maximum quality data output, this does it well. Just be prepared to post-process elsewhere.
  • App crashes in depth mode

    By Marieeeesam
    App is constantly crashing when I use depth mode/portrait. Used to be my go-to camera app but with the crashing, I’ll be going back to VSCO which is FREE. Save your money - use VSCO.
