Spider-man_resultSony’s AR Effect camera application has been updated to version number 3.0.27. The main new addition is downloadable themes, where Sony is adding to the number of AR effects it provides via the Google Play Store. We counted six new AR effects including Butterfly, Celebration, Comic, Funky Disco, Horror and Spider-man.

Native video recording is also now supported. Those of you on KitKat would have already had video support, but this now opens it up to users running handsets on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Other features introduced includes additional sound effects and more actions when touching AR objects. All in all, another great update from Sony – some of the new AR effects are a lot of fun. Find some further screens, including Play Store links, below.

    I love this AR effect camera, I don’t think any other manufacturer has anything like it. It is quite fun to use and unleashes the little kid inside.

  • Hamed Azizi

    Updated. It’s perfect. Tomorrow I’m going to vacation and this update would be great.

    Spiderman! You’re da man, Sony! :D

    After updated the AR, if I go out from camera app, I find the sim card disabled and the network is lossing.

  • Sand

    Update AR Effect app and download the themes via “+ more” button, dont download themes outside app or themes will not work.

  • Deki

    I remember that when I got the phone, there was the zombie mask, but then it disappeared…

    But, now, it’s awesome! :)

  • Ridhwan Azizan

  • Clarence Alvarado

    More to come! Came from the Honami System Dump leak last year

    The Spiderman one was well cool :D

    + When i use the ‘Creative Effect’ mode on my Z1 if i exit from it it makes my Z1 pause for a bit then there are no icons on my main screen then the icons come back. I am sure this didn’t happen before i did the KitKat update. Very odd. It’s like the Z1 is struggling to cope with the Effects form that mode.

    Go on holiday and f*ck yourself, stupid paki. I bet your going to Syria to fight, you might as well stay there-we don’t want you.

  • esniper

    Awesome Parekoh!!!

    That horror one is kinda creepy! haha

  • JHMBB2

    Oh how retarded, my SONY Xperia Z is not compatible with a SONY app, but the Asus Nexus 7 is. No wonder you guys buy off contract!

  • Billy de Fretes

    ah… damn.. i already download manually by clicking the link but when try to open all download files, it shows me warning i need to update my Ar Effect and yet my AR Effect was the latest version :(

  • Kaostheory

    I already had butterfly, celebration, and disco on my Z1. But will get the rest.

    There’s no need to be so ignorant, you are just being racist and offensive. I have a few Muslim friends and I have to say they’re some of the nicest people I’ve met. Don’t classify an entire religion on a couple of extremists or complete idiots, those people don’t even follow the true religion.

  • Sean

    Sony wants to concentrate on image quality not silly gimmicks

  • Prateek Bhanushali

    Why effects are shown in an app tray ??? i don’t see any reason for that…

  • Frank Larsen

    You know that you can access the internet from almost anywhere in the world? Do you know where Syria is, and what’s and why it’s a war there? Do you know how “old” your country is and where most of it’s inhabitants came from? Or what they did and still are doing to native people?

  • hansip

    Scared off by the Horror AR Effect :S

  • Abhijit Biswas

    Decent enough! I am loving my camera finally!

    Now only if actual camera quality improved!!!

  • Hamed Azizi

    Sorry bro. You lost the bet. Muslim but not paki. I’m from Iran. not Iraq or Pakistan or any other muslim countries. IRAN : Islamic Republic of Iran. So what? Is my name stupid or what? Are pakis stupid or what? You don’t know anything about anything bro.

  • Hamed Azizi

    You found another friend Bob :)

  • WiZe

    Congratulations from the far Switzerland! You won the brainless award for the most stupid reply I’ve ever read… Oh, and that nickname…… LAME!!!!!!! At least you made me laugh so hard….. Ahahahahahahah

  • Bob

    No problem, it’s my pleasure taking down scumbags like this guy one by one.

    A suggession…. For Quality, use “lg camera” app V6.4.

  • Sherkhan

    use zombiebooth or zombiemyface for much better graphics
