Powerful third-party camera app Camera+ will soon be taking advantage of the manual controls Apple has opened up in iOS 8. Developer tap tap tap, in a blog post today, detailed a number of new features in the upcoming Camera+ 6.

I’m definitely most excited about the ability to control shutter speed, ISO, white balance, and focus while shooting photos. In Camera+ 6, there will be two levels of manual exposure controls.
Shutter priority mode will allow the photographer to set the mode and the camera will select the ISO. Full manual control allows users to set both the shutter speed and ISO.
One of the other noteworthy improvements in the update will be an app extension that will allow photographers to use the Camera+ editing tools directly from the stock Photos app.
Some of the other new features include a redesigned UI, an exposure value adjustment, an improved white balance control, new focusing options, and a macro shooting mode.
The current version of Camera+ is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and can be downloaded now on the App Store for $1.99. There is also a separate iPad/iPad mini version that hasn’t seen a recent update. It will set you back $4.99.
We’ll let you know when the updated Camera+ arrives.
