If you miss the days of the rangefinder and classic manual settings when taking your photos with today’s mobile device cameras, then you are not alone. Inspired by the Leica M camera series, Red Dot Camera brings a unique retro look along with the ability to manually adjust your settings back to the scene.
Red Dot Camera offers a manual focus using a rangefinder style tool, so you can capture that perfect shot by magnifying the center. You can then set the ISO, shutter speed, and exposure by turning the dials on the left side of the camera. When you are ready, just hit that red button.
This camera app offers a black and white mode so you can give your photos a distinctive look. There is also a self-timer with options for two, 10, or 30 seconds. You can easily enable the Display Frame Line setting as well and then choose from 28, 35, or 50 mm.
Red Dot Camera does bring back that original camera feel. Being able to manually adjust the settings rather than using an app that does everything for you should be pleasing to many shutterbugs. The app does offer Auto settings too for those quick shots you want to capture when you don’t have time to adjust the dials.
Red Dot Camera is currently available for a discounted price to celebrate the launch today, August 31. For the next 48 hours you can get the app for just $2.99. After that, it will be available on the App Store for $5.99.
