Snapture: free 3rd party iPhone camera soft

You all probably remember the iPhone Camera Pro program that we wrote about not too long ago — it was a native (unauthorized) application for the iPhone that allowed you to use digital zoom and other advanced features for your iPhone’s camera, and did it well. Its only downside was that it wasn’t free — and now there’s a free alternative out for it.

Snapture is another unauthorized program for the iPhone (which means you’d need to jailbreak your device to actually use it), offering a big variety of features, and being completely free. The full list of features includes:

* Easy Self Photo: One of the most annoying aspects of the iPhone’s Camera app is the fact that you have to tap a tiny button in order to snap a photo. This makes it extremely difficult to try and take a photo of yourself. With Snapture, taking ‘Self’ photos is easy! Simply tap anywhere on the iPhone screen or use the volume button to take a photo.
* Digital Zoom: With Snapture, you don’t have to worry about stepping forward or backwards to get the perfect shot. Our 3x max digital zoom slider helps you frame exactly what you want in your shots.

* Burst Mode: Taking photos with a camera phone is inherently difficult because you really need a steady hand. With Snapture’s fast and slow burst modes, you can capture three frames in a row to make sure you get that perfect shot.
* Multiple Image Sizes: Snapture lets you take photos in three different sizes: Large (1600×1200), Medium (1280×960) and Small (960×720).
* Color Modes: With Snapture you can take photos in either Full Color or Grayscale color modes.
* Timer: Turn-on the timer to delay photo taking by 5 seconds. Just enough time to join in on group shots.
* Toggle Auto Rotation: The basic iPhone Camera app will not let you take a photo upside down. Photos are rotated automatically even if you’re an advanced user trying to take a creative shot. With Snapture you can turn Auto Rotation off should you desire.
* Silent Mode: Take photos without disturbing anyone by turning off audible feedback.
* Use Leveler: The use leveler provides a visual aid for taking photos at different angles.
