Camera Apps That Improve On The Native Camera

A great way to improve your photography skills is with a third-party camera app that gives you more control over how you capture each image. These awesome apps open up a whole new world of possibilities.

Shoot Like a Pro

When it is time to capture that perfect photo, these full-featured camera apps offer the settings and adjustment options you need for shooting and editing like a pro.

Camera+

A better camera app

Camera+

Complete control

For photographers looking for more control over their images.

While Camera+ has long been an App Store stable, it continues to add more and more features for photographers to help capture that perfect shot. Recent additions include slow-shutter support, ultra-low ISO and much more. Apple Watch users can even use the app on the wearable device to set a timer.

Why we love it

I have nothing bad to say about this app, it's not a fluke that Camera+ has topped the iTunes charts for so long. The combination of an easy-to-use interface and powerful manual controls makes it a must have for anyone looking to take their iPhone photography to the next level.

Microsoft Pix Camera

Capture and create amazing photos with a new camera app that does the work for you.

Microsoft Pix Camera

Compare the photo

For those looking for a camera app that adjusts photo settings automatically.

If you are a photo-taking fanatic with your iOS device, then you have probably tried tons of camera apps. But, the Microsoft Pix app claims to take the work out of capturing the perfect photo with automatic setting adjustments for every shot.

Why we love it

Microsoft Pix is certainly easy to use; just open and capture your shot. You can also adjust previous photos you have taken and saved to your device with available filter effects. The images come out nice and you can do a quick comparison of the photo you captured with the adjusted one.

Hipstamatic

This groovy app is perfect to capture an out-of-the-ordinary photo

Hipstamatic

Ready for your ratio

For photographers looking for a retrotastic way to take fun photos.

There are two distinct ways to capture photos using Hipstamtic. In ClassicMode, you can revel in a touch of analog goodness while in pro mode, photographers can adjust a number of different levels to capture that perfect shot. When done taking photos, there are more than 20 professional adjustment tools and 12 signature presets. You can even use the app to get real photo prints delivered to year door.

Why we love it

Hipstamtlc has been around as long as the App Store itself, and for good reason. Even before Instagram, the app allowed users to apply fun filters to their square photos. Swiping through the different lenses, flashes, and films is tons of fun. And if that's not for you, the ProMode allows complete control to capture that perfect photo.

Be in Control

If you prefer to manually adjust the exposure, shutter, and focus of your shots, then these camera apps put you in complete control.

MuseCam

Capture the perfect shot and then spruce it up with this advanced camera and editing tool

MuseCam

Make your adjustments

For those who like to use a manual camera and also have robust editing tools.

MuseCam is an easy-to-use, sleek camera and photo editing app. When capturing your next shot, take control of the shutter, ISO, white balance, and focus. And then pop open your photo library to edit previously-taken pictures with great presets and terrific adjustment tools.

Why we love it

If you take a lot of photos on your device and are looking for a solid editing tool that comes with a manual camera, then check out the new MuseCam. This robust tool not only lets you capture the perfect shot with manual adjustments, but lets you enhance your photos for an awesome look.

Manual – RAW Camera

Get the right shot every time

Manual – RAW Camera

Be better than automatic. Shoot Manual.

For anyone who wants full control over the camera's exposure and ISO levels.

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.

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.

Specialty Apps

Sometimes you need a special lens or focus capability to get the kind of shot out of your iPhone that you'd usually get with a regular camera. These apps should help.
