The coders at Sudobility somehow started out by offering an iPhone Sudoku app, then shifted gears towards improving on the built-in camera. Their latest offering, called Night Camera, addresses the issue of low-light (e.g. nighttime/dark indoor) photography with, on the surface, a rather neat image-stabilization hack:
condition, the shutter time is longer, and even small shaking from the
tapping of the camera button will make the photo un-usable.
we created Night Camera, the app to prevent the blur at the first
place. Using the built-in iPhone accelerometer, it automatically shoots
the photo when it detects the iPhone being stable, so you have a real
chance to get some good photos at night."
Not bullet-proof, and certainly no substitute for a $500 digital SLR lens with true image-stabilizing, but if you take a lot of after-dark pix with your handset, Night Camera's [limited-time introductory] asking price of US$0.99 puts it in the "wot-the-hell-it's-worth-trying-out" category.
…until you scan the Sudobility site a little more, and find the following caveat:
though it is a good cell phone camera, it is nowhere near the quality
of a dedicated digital camera. The color is washed out [and] the contrast is
low…Well, we can fix the color and contrast. All you need is our Photo Lab app."
Which'll set you back another US$2.99.
