'Kamera' Adds Front and Rear Camera Shortcuts to Notification Center
Are you an iPhone camera power-user? An Instagram addict, perhaps? If so, then you can never have enough camera shortcuts. A new and free Notification Center add-on called Kamera by iOS developer ravirajm puts two new useful shortcuts in Notification Center.
The first shortcut is a button for getting to the front-facing camera on the iOS device. Since the front-facing camera is more often than not used for self-portraits, the icon resembles the picture of a person on the iPhone. The second shortcut is a button for getting to the rear-facing camera on the iOS device. Since the rear-facing camera is usually used for photographs, there are little picture icons on the iPhone screen in the icon. There is some nice attention to detail in those elements.
When you tap on the front-facing camera shortcut, a camera sheet will open with the front-facing camera loaded up. You can easily switch to the rear-facing camera with the stock camera-switching button. When you tap on the rear-facing camera shortcut, a camera sheet will open with the rear-facing camera loaded up. You will also be able to easily switch to the front-facing camera with the same method as aforementioned.
Since the Kamera add-on for Notification Center is basically a widget, you will be able to enable and disable it at any time by dragging it in and out of Notification Center from the Notifications preferences pane in the Settings application.
The Kamera option might not appear in the Notifications preferences pane at first after you install the add-on, to fix this, just reboot your iOS device.
Kamera seems like a solid way to adding yet another camera shortcut to iOS. If you feel like you canít get enough camera shortcuts, you should consider Kamera. Kamera is fully compatible with the iPhone 5 and iOS 6.1.
Requirements: iOS device with a camera running iOS 5+

If the buttons were smaller it would make this tweak pretty handy . The buttons seem too bulky for the purpose they serve.

Buttons on the lock screen would be awesome for this.

neat shortcuts! another feature, maybe for a future update, is to include video recording shortcuts too. Although might not be used as much, it would be nice to have
