This morning jag.gr (makers of 6×6, 6×7, Pure Shot and Field Cam) released the most significant update to it’s flagship 645 Pro camera app. As a long time user of the app I found that the update made the whole 645 Pro experience so much more user friendly. The interface has had a complete re-design and is simply more intuitive and pleasurable to use. Many of the standard features are still there (exposure lock, focus lock, white balance lock),

open up flow style interfaces that make the selection of options for these functions a breeze.

If the previous model had options for selecting filters I was never able to find it. But with the MkII a great range of filters are available along with an incremental adjustment wheel (lower right) which allows you to set a percentage level for the filter strength. This makes working, particularly in Black and White, a rewarding experience. The addition of graduated neutral density filters is also a great plus for landscape work in either colour or black and white.

Full GPS data, ISO, shutter speed, camera battery level, file compression and film type are viewable in the standard workspace.

The full set of features along with a down-loadable pdf manual can be found over at jag.gr

If you haven’t used this app yet all I can say is that you are missing out.
