6×6 Review + Giveaway





Enjoy shooting with a square medium format camera built into your iPhone with 6×6 ($0.99).

From the developer who brought you 645 PRO, jag.gr, 6×6 is one of the best, if not the best, square ready camera apps out there. 6×6 is packed with tons of futures like manual focus, exposure control, full EXIF support, high-res output and much more.

How to use 6×6

  1. Switch the grid on the focusing screen: select from Architectural (shown), Rule of Thirds, or none.
  2. Flash selection: move the slider to the right to set the flash gun to active, slide it back to deactivate the flash gun.
  3. Focus “point-of-interest”. Tap the focusing screen to set this; double-tap to clear and return to automatic focus.
  4. Exposure “point-of-interest”. Tap-hold the focusing screen to set this; double-tap to clear this and the focus point-of-interest, and return to automatic focus.
    • If the exposure point-of-interest has not been explicitly set, it is the same as the focus point-of-interest.
    • To lock the focus and exposure points-of-interest, swipe the focusing screen.
  5. Settings button: press this to configure some detail aspects of 6×6. At rest, this acts as an indicator for when (and how many) images are being saved.
  6. Mode selection: move the slider to the right to take monochrome photographs, slide it back to take color photographs.
  7. Split-screen “spirit level”: when this is horizontal, you’re lined up with the horizon.
  8. Shutter release: press and release the button to take photographs

  1. I’d like a code because I’ve heard great things about the app and many of my peers use it, with nice results. I’m always willing to try a new app and expand my camera bag and iphoneography portfolio!

  2. I would like a promo code, because it would give me another form to feature in my photo blog of iPhone only pictures. So far I’ve used apps like Snapseed and Hipstamatic.

  3. I would like a promo code, because prior to using the iphone as a camera I used a Rollieflex and the 6×6 app has the same textured leather look to it.

  4. I would like a code please as I use my iPhone to take a lot of photos, and I like to use the best possible apps available to do so, giving me the most range for shots.

  5. I love square format photography & it looks like this app has much better features than the typical apps that shoot square, like the built in level and focus lock.

  6. I’d love a promo code! I actually completed my entire degree course on a Mamiya 6×6 twin lense. I traded up to a Rollie around 9 years ago, the same time digital was getting big. I mostly just use my iphone now, but do occasional break out the Rollie. Being able to combine the two would be pretty spectacular!

  7. I’d like to win a promo code because a love the square format like a Hasselblad 500cm. Thanks.

  8. Promotional codes have been distributed!

    Congratulations to the winners.

    Stay tuned for our next giveaway!

  9. I would like the code because I love iphoneogarphy and I’m always looking for a cooler way to take pictures.

  10. Hi.
    I’d like win a code because my first camera was a Rolleiflex and I love the square format. Nowadays, I shoot with my iPhone – but also with film cameras – but the best camera I have is the camera all the time with me and this is my iPhone ;o))
    Thanks and best regards from France.
