There are fewer filter effects here than in Analog, however, CameraBag 2 has greater control and flexibility under the hood and this can create considerably more variety.
The options are listed under four categories: styles, adjustments, borders and favourites. Styles are the basic filters and there can only be one style per photo. However, you can then add any number of adjustments that cover tone, colour, contrast, tinting, vignetting, grain and light leaks. Borders can be added too.
The main filter effect also has both an opacity slider and a randomising slider to generate many different versions of the same effect.
Combine all these things into something you like and it can be saved into the Favourites tab. There’s already 81 mixes in there for you to try.
