Camera Genius iPhone App Performance

With the timer being able to be set to repeat you can use the app to do some time-lapse photography. Intervals available are 2, 5, 10, 15, 30, 60, 120 and 300 seconds. When in burst mode, the app can shoot 3 images at around 0.8fps. The anti-shake mode waits from when you hit the shutter to when it can detect no shake and immediately takes a picture. Below are example images using the zoom at intervals between 1 and 6x.
