Camera Apps That Improve On The Native Camera

We're highlighting the best camera apps to use in place of Apple's stock app. If you consider yourself a photog, these apps are for you.

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.

ProCamera.

Use this great camera app in any low-light situation

ProCamera.

A number of modes

For photographers who are looking for a great way to take low-light photos.

When you're ready to capture an image or video, just start the app up. There are a ton of different levels you can adjust quickly and easily.

Why we love it

ProCamera+ is one of the best third-party camera apps available. It's powerful and truly gives photographers more control over their images - especially if they shoot in low light. The ability to shoot video is a great added plus as well. You will need to pay extra to unlock some features with an in-app purchase, but the technology is definitely worth it.

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.

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 - Edit Photos & Manual Camera

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

MuseCam - Edit Photos & Manual Camera

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.

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.
