Camera: Metro loses

Metro's Camera app is also basic, though it offers more controls than the iPad's Camera app. You can select the audio source, enable video stabilization, and set a timer. You can also set the exposure, brightness, and contrast -- none of which the iPad's Camera app does. But you can't zoom -- a stunning omission.
