gyroCam — the camera app by Hunter Research and Technology — gets its name by using the gyro (iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4th generation) and accelerometer (iPhone 3G and 3GS) to correctly and automatically frame a level shot from any scene. Choose from clip and mask modes that cut out the level frame, or fill mode which zooms the level frame back to full size. It’s a good camera app for quickly and automatically taking level photos at full-resolution.

I have not used the app, but The Amateur iPhoneographer’s Tania Palmer says that “the app is pretty good, stable and it does exactly what the developer says it does.” I’ve seen photos taken with the app and they are sharp, level, and full-resolution.

In addition to gyro capabilities, gyroCam is also a full-featured camera app, offering the following:

• Small, large, burst, and timer shot modes
• Manual tap-to-focus and exposure (iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4)

• Flash on/off/auto (iPhone 4)
• 1X, 2X, 4X zoom
• Portrait and landscape reference frames
• Gyro clip, fill, off modes
• Fast buffered image saves
• camera and location EXIF metadata

gyroCam is compatible with iPhone and iPod touch (4th generation). Requires iOS 4.1 or later.. It normally sells for $0.99 in the App Store.
