Clearcam for the iPhone is an incredible app made by Occipital that will increase your iPhone 4/s and iPhone 5 camera resolution from 8 megapixels to a huge 18 megapixels.

This app will more than double the 8mpx native resolution of the iPhone 4s/5 camera

Whilst this app is not universal it can of course run on an iPad although with 2x magnification. In fact it can be of most use to iPad’s and iPod Touches with lesser cameras as this app will more than double the resolution. It will increase the iPad and iPad Mini’s 5 megapixel camera from 5mpx to 11.2!

And it will increase the iPad and iPad Mini native camera resolution from 5 megapixels to 11.2 mpx!

In terms of features the app is really a one trick pony and doesn’t offer the camera features we have come to expect from more professional camera apps like the ability to lock focus and exposure, but this app isn’t designed to be a camera replacement app for one simple reason: it needs to be held steady (a tripod is ideal) and it relies on you not having much motion in your scene. If you can achieve these two things you will get stunning results — if not, then you will get interesting results, but not that usable.

Under the right conditions this app delivers really sharp images and doesn’t sacrifice any colour information either. You will see a slight increase in image size from 2mb to about 3.5mb which isn’t a big deal. You will have to remember to delete your image queues in the app as it will save the 6 images there (not your camera roll) and these will start to eat up your iPhone/iPad’s space.

Overall a truly great app for when you need that extra resolution and well worth the $0.99 price tag. Download it from the App Store:

  1. I love the app but the chirps/sounds are driving me crazy. How do I disable them? I can’t find any support for this app.

    • Sadly there is option in the app to do this, but you can silence those futuristic sounds by turning on silent mode on the iPhone itself with the switch above the volume buttons. Not ideal but it will silence it for you.
