    Need more testers for Aquarium Camera app ver 2.0, Nov 16, 2017
  1. John Ostler

    BIG announcement all! Been working hard on this update because I've been really annoyed that we had to deviate from a single slider to adjust the color. So.... today Version 3.0 will be hitting your emails for those of you who are testing.

    It incorporates a new 'Gel mode' that simulates the placement of a colored (orange) lens over your camera. Before making the Aquarium Camera app, buying a lens or colored gel was pretty much the only way you could reliably get blue light out of your aquarium shots. The thing that I think makes this app even better than that, is that it dynamically changes the color of the lens to match what the camera sees in the scene. You might have a frag that needs more yellow, or lighter orange, or more red. Another shot of that mother acro colony might actually need a lens with a bit more blueness to it. It's like you went to Joann's and picked up a 16,777,216 pack of gels (give or take).

    I also added in some auto controls on the sliders to get you back to par if you went a little too nuts. You can also see the values changing dynamically so you can get a feel for what's going on.

    I hope you guys like it and that it doesn't suck. #highfive I'd love to see your before/after shots and what lighting you guys are using if you don't mind posting to the thread. Thankyou everyone and happy testing!

    P.S. This version is going into Android dev today. Yehaw!
