Smartphone cameras may still lag behind DSLR cameras, but the Obscura 2 app aims to give smartphone photographers the same tools DSLR users have. Essentially, the Obscura 2 functions as a manual camera app that offers a range of high-end tools for taking quality photographs. The app does take some time to effectively use, making it better for planned photos rather than a quick snapshot, but this is sure to appeal to budding and established photographers who want a tool to step up their smartphone photography game.
The app itself features an incredibly clean design and features flash control, grids, a shutter timer and spirit level. 19 filters come free with the app, while additional filters can be unlocked by sharing the app with friends or simply purchasing them. Finally, the Obscura 2 app lets users save in a range of formats, including RAW, HEIC, JPEG, Live Photo and Depth.
