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
- 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.
