BlackBerry offers many different tools in the Camera app of BlackBerry 10 that will impress iOS and Android users alike. RIM has not only created a clone of what's usually found in smartphone cameras, they went beyond and enhanced it by adding a feature/services almost everyone is already familiar with - Instagram. It also has characteristic's of iOS' iPhoto app, which allows you to edit photos on your iOS device with similar features found in the Desktop version of Mac OS X.
