Today, Facebook released their latest application, which is Facebook Camera. In a glance, this application is similar with instagram, but it seems like instagram team has no relations with this application. It because Instagram and Facebook camera application has different ‘quality’.
You can use Facebook Camera application to give photo effect and share the photo to Facebook. Unfortunately, filter effect owed by Facebook Camera application is worse than Instagram. When in Instagram, your photo felt like to have certain aesthetic after filter process, then filter in Facebook Camera is far more similar with “white balance settings” which can be found easily in common photo editor application.
It is probably made Facebook finally bought Instagram for USD 1 billion! The reason could be similar with YouTube bought by Google at that time. Yup… Because Google Video cannot compete with YouTube, finally that internet giant bought it by USD 1,6 billion. Facebook Camera seems like doesn’t want to be compete with strong competitor like Instagram, that’s why they bought it. It makes sense, doesn’t it?
Unfortunately, Facebook Camera until now is only available for iOS device only. iPhone or iPad owner can download it directly here for free:
Facebook still haven’t given statement about when will they release Android version or other mobile platform. Let’s wait :)
