Tadaa SLR: iPhone app facilitates your focus after the fact

Dave Johnson | Jan. 10, 2014
Your iPhone is remarkable in many ways, but its camera will simply never capture photos with a deliciously shallow depth of field like your DSLR. And unless Apple finds a way to cram a much, much larger sensor into the phone, that will always be the case. You can simulate that luxuriant, shallow depth of field effect through software, though. Tadaa SLR does just that.

Completed photos are automatically saved to your camera roll, and you can optionally upload it to Twitter or Facebook from within the app.

Tadaa SLR is one of several apps that let you simulate shallow depth of field in an iPhone photo, but it does so in an elegant and flexible way. The addition of Lytro-like focus manipulation and bokeh tools make this app a winner — albeit one you'll need to pay $2 for.
