General Camera & Effects Apps
UPDATE: KitCam and PhotoForge have been bought by Yahoo owners of Flickr. These apps are no longer available at the Apple App Store, but they still work if you got them. Word is that the developer is now working to make a Flickr photo app based on these apps. Guess we will have to wait and see how that turns out.
KitCam is a very highly rated app and is made by the same creators of PhotoForge (a photo editor).
