Camera Plus ProGlobal Delight’s new Camera Plus Pro update is out. This is not Camera+ by tap tap tap, but what is actually the first Camera Plus app that predated tap tap tap’s by a few months.

The 3.4 update is in the App Store and has a ton of new filters and features. It’s a pretty significant update for this camera replacement that some iPhoneographers swear by over ProCamera or Camera+. It’s pretty good. It’s a very powerful and featured all-in-one photo app, but it still has a few things that I don’t like about it. I’ll have more on the Camera Plus Pro update later, but wanted to share the info about “Metamorphosis,” the iPhone photography contest they have launched to celebrate the new release.

Here’s the pressie, edited a bit for print here:

Camera Plus Pro 3.4 has 21 of the finest photo filters. Additionally, it has also added 9 highly interactive and crazy distortion effects demoed in TUAW live telecast at the Macworld Expo. To celebrate this release, they have announced a rich iPhoneography contest titled Metamorphosis. It gives a chance to the users to craft their photos using the impressive filters of Camera Plus Pro and win some cool prizes – iPad 2, iPod touch and iPod Shuffles.

Camera Plus Pro invites iPhoneographers to participate in their new contest – Metamorphosis – to celebrate its latest and biggest upgrade.

Metamorphosis is an exciting opportunity for both new and existing users of Camera Plus Pro to win an iPad 2 and other great prizes. In this contest, users are required to capture photos and transform them into beautiful creations using the new filters. The best entries will get a chance to fight it out for a grand prize, an iPad 2. Other prizes include iPod touch, iPod Shuffle along with some daily prizes for Twitter and Facebook followers.

The contest is open for submission from May 12 to May 22. For more details on the contest, visit the Global Delight Website.

The current upgrade for Camera Plus Pro includes a complete new set of beautiful photo filters such as Coffee, Pop, Retro Green, Washed, Scarlet, Rust and 15 more which transform the ordinary-looking photos into extraordinary, with full of life. Share a lighter moment with your family and friends with the amusing distortion effects for your photos such as Bulge, Swirl, Fish Eye, Pixilate and 5 more. When adding a filter, you can preview the before and after states of the image with just a tap without leaving the current screen, a huge advantage when you want to do a quick comparison.

Flick through all the available photo effects using swipe gestures on your screen to instantly find the one that suits best and be done with it in a matter of seconds. The independent control for white balance and touch exposure settings allow you to add creative effects to the image. Double-tap and swipe gestures make post processing a breeze, resulting in you creating a work of art in just a few seconds. The new photo filters are available for iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4 and the new iPod touch. There are also some nifty enhancements within the app which will amplify your photography experience.

The new 21 special filters and distortion effects would not work on iPhone 3G due to technical limitations. However, there are other 18 photo filters made for iPhone 3G.

Camera Plus Pro is $1.99 in the App Store. Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.1 or later.
