Best Photo Apps for Photographers: Blux Camera Pro
Blux uses your current location and weather data to determine optimal shooting settings. A live histogram, framing level and on-screen sliders for colour temperature and zoom further enhance your control.
It’s a pity, though, that the app interface is set up primarily for landscape-format shots, and the narration voiceover is a gimmick best muted.
