One of the most powerful camera replacement apps has just gotten a great new update. 645 PRO Mk II is available now and is a free update to previous owners of the app.
This new update adds a ton of new and improved features to this already powerful camera app. We’ve got a comprehensive list of what’s new in this update. Keep reading for more info. >>>
Developer Mike Hardaker says, “With 645 PRO Mk II we’ve not gone for a simple upgrade; this is a totally new app that uses the same philosophy as the original 645 PRO, but with a completely updated implementation.”
First thing that hits you is the larger viewfinder and a much less cluttered interface. All the information is presented over the screen instead of at the expense of it. Geotags, EXIF data, “Film” type and other all display onscreen.
On of the things that I really like about PureShot, Jag.gr’s other popular camera app, is its simplified interface, making it easier to use. The new 645 PRO interface draws inspiration from that. While the toolset has improved, so has the interface which is now cleaner and less imposing.
In the menus there are now more configuration options to customize the interface to your shooting preferences.
The film selector has been completely retooled. It’s now a button in the interface that brings up the various film simulations. To select a “film”, you simply now swipe onscreen and tap to select.
There are nine new (or improved) Film Modes that provide spookily accurate recreations of classic film stocks as varied as Kodak Tri-X Pan, llford XP2, Kodak Portra and Fuji Velvia. These aren’t exaggerated for effect—they’re designed to look as though you are really shooting to negative or transparency.
Film modes can be easily be edited to further tweak its look and tonal qualities. Custom Film Modes can be created, saved and retrieved, Best of all, with a tap, these mods can easily be reset to original standards.
The Photo Filters have been revised to be much more accurate in the way they reproduce the use of real, glass filters.
Save processed and/or unprocessed images in HI-Quality JPEG, MAX-quality JPEG or TIFF (processed and unprocessed output options selectable individually).

There’s a lot more in this update and reading through the extensive and thorough built-in manual is an hour well-spent.
645 PRO’s powerful tool set already made it the choice camera replacement for many serious iPhoneographers. The new update, quite simply, is fantastic. There are more tools in an easier to use interface. It lets you shoot raw or emulate classic analog film stocks.
