So I looked at Camera Zoom a while ago when it first came out. Reviews were not great so I did not bother. I looked today at my Top 25 to see that it is 2nd top Paid and costs .99cents. Reviews are up to 4/5 stars so I figured what the hell.

Let me tell you, I guess with the 3MP camera they were able to improve the app. It Zooms now and after taking the picture, cleans it up a bit. The ability to touch the screen to focus remains intact in the zoom and works just as well as when fully zoomed out.

For 99cents I would definitely recommend this app to enable you camera to now Zoom.

NOTE: No video zoom support.

Thanks for the info! I wonder how it would look on the iPhone 3G's 2 megapixel camera. I assume under good lighting it might not pixelate it too much...

I don't like these zoom applications!

1. You need a very steady hand
2. You need good light conditions
3. It's better to take a normal picture, and then zoom in..

...just my thoughts ;)

I'd love to hear some different opinions on this subject. I go back and forth and can't make up my mind whether Camera Zoom is better, or it is just better to crop after the fact.
