Description: With Magic Hour, get started with VR photography! Take beautiful pictures by exploring an island lit in the perfect light and experiment with an accurate virtual SLR camera that incorporates all the physics of a real camera, in VR. NOTE: This is an early release – additional features to come soon! Magic Hour currently offers a fully controllable camera (Aperture, Shutter Speed, Exposure Compensation, Focal Length, ASM modes) with a hand-crafted island and hidden surprises to find. Pictures can be saved and shared.

Review: While it is not going to be for everyone I have to give credit to the developers of this to bring something to VR I never thought possible and this is a DSLR camera simulator. It might be a very basic app, but it also works well and teaches you some great photography tips. If you plan to get into digital photography you might want to take a look at this before you rush out and purchase a DSLR camera that costs more than a family car. It’s free, it’s useful and it’s a good use of VR!
