Microsoft Pix Camera App Description

Microsoft Pix named one of the 50 Best Apps of the Year – Time Magazine “Microsoft might have just made the best and easiest camera app for the iPhone and iPad.” – Napier Lopez, The Next Web “I found that Microsoft Pix produces photos that are plain old better in some cases…” – Jordan Novet, VentureBeat Take better photos without extra effort! Microsoft Pix has serious intelligence behind the lens, so it is a bit like having a pro photographer inside your camera – tweaking settings, selecting the best shots, and enhancing them on the fly – to help people and scenes look their best. It’s designed to help take the guesswork out of getting great photos, so now you can just enjoy the moment, instead of struggling to capture it! Microsoft Pix: Point. Shoot. Perfect. Top 10 Features • NEW PIX STYLES! Completely transform your photos with artistic styles and watch as your artwork gets created • Smart settings – Automatically checks scene and lighting between each shutter tap, and updates settings between each shot. • Face recognition – People are the most important photo subjects, so when it detects a face in the shot, it automatically optimizes settings to help people look their best. • Moment capture - Captures a burst of frames every time you tap the shutter button, including frames before and after your tap, so you won’t miss the right moment. • Best Image(s) - Automatically selects up to 3 of the best and most unique shots from the burst, and immediately deletes the rest, so you don’t waste your phone’s storage or your time comparing and storing similar frames. • Image quality – Uses discarded burst frames to enhance each Best Image, improving exposure and color, and reducing noise and blur. • Live Image – Automatically creates a short, looping video, by stitching together the frames from the burst into a Live Image, but ONLY when it senses motion in your shot, so it won’t waste a ton of your phone’s memory. • Hyperlapse – Videos shot with Microsoft Pix are automatically stabilized for smoother playback, and can be time lapsed and saved at many different speeds. • Auto-sync - Seamlessly syncs to your camera roll, so you don't have to individually import or save your photos and videos to your camera roll. • Widgets and 3D Touch – Where available, 3D touch and Today and Lock screen widgets are enabled, so you can jump directly into photo capture, selfie capture, video capture or gallery.

App Reviews

  • MAJOR letdown 👇

    By Disaapointed in Texas
    👎. Needs Major Work - MAJOR DISAPPOINTMENT especially with all the hype surrounding this app. I downloaded it and (attempted) to use it twice on almost a dozen cards - only 1 captured 80% of the information. The others were almost gobleydook with partial reads. I sat at similarly well-illuminated spots to do my captures.
  • Great free app

    By bkr6891
    Works well and I love the price.
  • Totally broken

    By MgSam11
    Since the latest update the app now hangs for 30 seconds after taking a picture, leaving you unable to do anything. Obviously that makes the app useless. How Microsoft releases code in this poor a quality is mind boggling.
  • This app is terrible

    By EastsideRembrandt
    Enough said.
  • Use Pix to capture your memories

    By Paulie11111111
    This is so much better than the iPhone 7 camera app. I use it often to take amazing cat photos. Apple has no idea how to process hair in a photo, but Pix gets it right every time. My only criticism is that as some of the other reviews note, it does consume a lot of battery.
  • Beats iOS’s Camera app, hands-off

    By Flash.Gordon57
    I like this so well, I’ve hidden the native Camera app, and always use this. Unless you’re going to use ProCamera or it’s equivalent, it’s hard to use Camera and compose a better result, without using multiple apps. So often I am taking shots in less than optimal conditions. I automatically take three shots, compare them on a big screen, take the best. Then crop it to adjust before I’ve cropped it, adjust brightness, contrast, and color. That all takes time, and triples my storage requirements in the interim. MS Pix does more than that (less the cropping) automatically, using their AI, so deliver better shots the first time. And I am very happy with the results. I can still go in and fine-tune later, but don’t waste all the time. I get a better first-pass result. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed.
  • Enhancement feature is nice

    By BinoWasHere
    I like the enhancement feature of the app. Its not overkill and you can easily adjust it. I just wish there was a reverse option so i can flip between mirrored or not and change it. If that option is available its not easy to find or use.
  • Computational Photography, broken

    By Matrix29bear
    Well, where to begin. Version 1.0 was fast, hard on the battery. Later versions all got crashier and slower (using a snap timer rather than a frame timeout). Now a decent pic can take 30 to 45 seconds to snap a photo (whereas version 1.0 used a frame timeout of around 30 frames). Fairly useless for most photographers except as a shake reducer. Now onto the problems. Computational Photography is memory & CPU thrashing & battery draining. But in smartphones this is actually the optimal platform for this right now (GOOGLE PIXEL cameras being the prime example of competent optimization for functions of Computational Photography). However, aside from shake-reduction this Microsoft App is no longer optimally sharp or useful as the speed of version 1.0. The per-seconds clock-timeout is non-optimal for the decreasing value of this app. I don’t see “coded shutter technique” or even non-linear sensor refresh in play (instead of using a line-push CMOS racetrack refresh, a non-linear wave of coded push patterns create a coded pixel refresh image that is great for denoising & temporal sharpening as well as effectively doubling the image resolution on the refresh axis). Very disappointing medium-effort programming from a neglected gem of camera innovation without drastically changing the core hardware of the camera itself (GOOGLE PIXEL camera again showing how to properly polish a programmer’s gem of effort that Microsoft carelessly discards like a drunken slut at Christmas while greedily unwrapping more presents to almost immediately disregard to high value & effort invested in choosing them.) Unless I’m doing badly lit shots or night shots, a 30 second snap time on still images is absurd.

  • Flip image

    By Aas Hesh
    I don’t take selfie from iPhone normal camera because it flip our image after taking selfie.....and this app have also same problem..... plz fix it otherwise it is a good app.......
