‘Manual’ Camera App Finally Brings Custom Exposure Control to iPhone

Manual iPhone App

Manual is a simple new camera app for iOS 8 that allows to manually adjust the three key inputs for exposure control – Aperture, ISO and Shutter Speed. Additional controls include adjustments for white balance focus and exposure bracketing.

No longer do you have to tap various regions of the frame in hopes that you can get the autoexposure to meter what you want. The manual exposure controls are up front and easy to scroll through. Photographers have been asking for these basic features on the iPhone for years – and now we’ve got them in a $1.99 app.

You can find the Manual app here in the iTunes App Store.
