ProCam is one of the more powerful camera replacement apps in the App Store.As more and more people are using their iPad as a camera, the need becomes great to improve the tools of that device’s camera as well and ProCam XL is one of the more advanced iPad-only camera replacements. Both have an extensive set of tools and a usable, familiar user interface. Both have a few unique features as far as advanced camera replacement apps go.

Today, we’ve got some copies of ProCam for iPhone or ProCam XL for iPad to give away! Want to win one of these? Keep reading to find out how. >>>

ProCam for iPhone

ProCam, camera replacement, iphone, ipadProCam for iPhone is a camera replacement app with an advanced feature set, including separate exposure, focus and white balance locks — all easily accessible from the viewfinder. ProCam has a convenient heads up display that gives more information about the state of your camera. There’s a large, easy to use dial on the side of the viewfinder that changes the shooting modes. The digital zoom control is located on the edge of that making it easy to grab and use. The shutter release button is slightly oversized and easy to release. A slideaway menu hides many other options.

ProCam features both Volume Shutter and Volume Torch, which lets you easily toggle your device’s flash on and off in Torch mode. It also features multiple shooting resolutions including full device resolution, so you can better match your image to the purpose it’ll be used for.

The app comes from a great developer who is constantly listening to user feedback and updating the app with new features.

ProCam does not have a fast shot-to-shot time in native-resolution mode — as much as a few seconds on an iPhone 5, but it’s a very good camera for capturing everyday snapshots.

For me, the app has the look and feel of a digital point-and-shoot. It’s a very good upgrade that gives you many more options than the standard App Camera app.

ProCam for iPhone is $0.99 in the App Store. Requirements: Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.1 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.

ProCam XL for iPad

Even with recent improvement to the latest iPad cameras, like the iPhone cameras, a good camera replacement app is a sound investment. There are a few of them in the App Store, including today’s giveaway, ProCam XL for iPad.

iPad camera replacement apps are optimized for the larger screens of the iPad, making them a better fit than an iPhone-only camera app running on iPad.

ProCam XL shares the great feature set of its iPhone sibling, ProCam for iPhone. It’s a camera-only app — no editing features. It starts with a great, point-and-shoot-like user interface with easy access to all the tools you need.

ProCam XL has separate focus, exposure, and white balance lock. It’s got multiple composition overlay grids. It lets you change the image resolution of your file to better match the file size with where it will be shared — full, high, medium and low resolutions.  You can shoot in multiple aspect ratios — 4:3, 3:2, 16:9, and square format 1:1. you can adjust the JPEG compression quality, letting you choose between file size and image quality.

Most of the App Store ratings are real 5-star reviews. The developers are great and stay on top of new user-requested features.

ProCam XL for iPad is $0.99 in the App Store. This one’s iPad-only. Requirements: Compatible with iPad. Requires iOS 5.1 or later.
