King Camera v2.0 from Martin Perreault on Vimeo.

The excellent King Camera just got its biggest update yet, with dozens of new features. Although it’s on my iPhone, I haven’t had a chance for hands on with the new update yet, but the new feature list is huge and you can see it after the jump.

For a limited time only, King Camera is on sale for $0.99 — that’s half off the usual $1.99 it’s been going for recently. Version 1 was an impressive debut for this powerful camera replacement app. The new update adds a ton of new features and tools for adjusting, tweaking and filtering images. This is an excellent all-in-one camera app.

Note: The developers suggest that “Since KC2.0 is such a big update, if you are updating from KC1.04 we do recommend you backup your library of photos to your Camera Roll before proceeding.”

Check out the video above where developers Yanik and Martin highlight the new features.
