Be better than automatic.
What is it about?
Manual is a simple-looking camera that has a lot of powerful features but is still easy-to-use. Users can quickly adjust all settings and parameters of the image before they shoot, and it's great for amateurs and pros alike. Manual lets you control shutter, ISO, white balance, focus, and exposure compensation in one package. Get the right shot every time with the full control that Manual gives you.
For those who...
- Prefer full control of their image parameters while shooting
- Don't like the limitations of the native Camera app
Not for those who...
- Are fine with the native Camera app
- Don't need or want full control of all parameters of an image
Why we love it
Manual is super easy to use and gives users complete control of how the image will turn out. You'll never have to wonder why something isn't coming out the way you'd want it to again.
