In September, I ran a giveaway for the newly released Red Dot Camera app, inspired by the Leica M. The makers of Red Dot Camera have just released a FREE version that you can download today to try before you buy the paid version. If you missed out on that September giveaway I also have five more promo codes for the full paid version to give away.
Download the FREE version here.
Sign up for the giveaway for the full version by leaving a comment on this post. Winners will be chosen by random draw on November 29, 2015 12 noon PST.
Looking for a free iPhone camera app with the look and feel of a professional manual camera? Red Dot Camera is the first camera app to bring rangefinder-style manual focus and exposure features to iOS, taking creative mobile photography to the next level.
Featuring four basic settings - ISO, Speed, Exposure Compensation, and Focus - Red Dot excels in delivering a retro photography experience coupled with exceptional image capture quality.
**Rangefinder-Style Manual Focusing**
Focus in with precision using a magnified patch at the center of the viewfinder to capture the perfect image.
**Manual ISO Control**
High ISO settings generate more image noise. By letting you set the ISO value manually, Red Dot Camera allows you to capture sharper and clearer images.
**Manual Shutter Speed Control**
Adjust the shutter speed manually to achieve the effect of longer exposures (car headlights, water, etc.), or to capture shots of fast action.
**Display Frame Lines (28mm, 35mm, 50mm)**
The iPhone lens has a fixed focal length of 28mm, but Red Dot Camera shows frame lines that simulate those of a 35mm and 50mm lens, just like the Leica M rangefinder.
Take a group picture or self-shot by setting the auto-timer to one of three countdown settings.
**Black & White Mode**
Switch to black and white and capture your image in classic coloration.
The only difference between this free Red Dot version and Red Dot premium is a logo applied to the corner of each one of your pictures. So go ahead and download Red Dot Camera free, and if you love the experience, simply upgrade in-app and start sharing and archiving your snaps without the watermark.
Whether you’re a creative camera enthusiast or a photography student, you’ll be amazed at how Red Dot Camera enables you to take sharper, better-exposed, professional quality photos from your iPhone.
Download Red Dot Camera free and start using your iPhone to shoot the way legendary photographers like Henry Cartier Bresson, Elliott Erwitt, Diane Arbus, and Walker Evans did with their Leica cameras.
