Manual Camera gives DSLR-like control to your phone




Android’s latest update brings a new camera API that can take full RAW images. To further make use of this improvement is the new app Manual Camera that basically allows for a full-on manual tweaking right on your smartphone.

Manual Cam has a clean layout with all the necessary settings neatly tucked on the sides giving you a clear view of your image. With these tools you can fiddle with the following settings on full manual:

  • Shutter speed
  • Focus distance
  • ISO
  • White balance
  • Exposure compensation

The Android app also lets users lock the settings or use the rotating wheel to adjust the parameters. They can set the maximum screen brightness, enable gridlines, mute/unmute tones, set the timer, turn on GPS for geo-tagging, and capture RAW (DNG) format — straight from the interface of the Camera app.

With almost all the standard controls from DSLRs present in the app, it’s worth the Php90 fee over at Play Store.
