If you’ve read anything about the business of photography in the past couple of years, you’ve seen that small, inexpensive point-and-shoot cameras are dropping rapidly in sales. Why? Because most of us have a very capable camera in our pockets at all times: our phone. A number of apps have sprung up to expand the capability of the native phone, and 645 Pro Mk II (and its sister app, the not-quite-so-capable Pure Shot) is at the top of the heap.
The screen shot below is the title page of the 50-page manual that is included with the app and is accessed through the menu. Any app that requires a 50-page manual is complicated. I am going to brush across the surface of most of the features of 645 Pro, but you should be sure to read the manual, just as you should for any camera. (Believe me, I’m just as guilty as the next person of trying to work a camera and then, in frustration, resorting to the manual.)
