Open Source iOS Camera Component Featuring A Great UI, Visual effects, And More


I’ve mentioned a number of open source projects for working with the camera, most recently a iOS video camera library featuring segmented recording, and core image filters.

Here’s a new open source lightweight camera component with a great looking user interface called TGCameraViewController submitted by Bruno Tortato Furtado.

This is a completely custom camera with all the usual camera features plus filters, zooming, and more.

The features according to the readme include:

Completely custom camera with AVFoundation
Custom view with camera permission denied
Easy way to access album (camera roll)
Flash auto, off and on
Front and back camera
Grid view
Preview photo view with three filters (fast processing)
Visual effects like Instagram iOS app
Zoom with pinch gesture

These images from the readme show the component running on different iPhone screen sizes:


You can find TGCameraViewController on Github here.

A nice custom camera component.
