    Hi everyone,

    Been looking for a manual camera app for my iPhone 6. I am down to the following selections:

    1. Manual - Custom exposure camera by Little Pixels ($1.99)
    2. Camera+ ($2.99)
    3. ProCam 2 - Camera and Photo Editor ($1.99)


    My goal is to have a camera app that is easy and intuitive to use and as quick as the stock one.

    I don't really need an 'editor' for the photos as the built in editor is fine for me. What I really want is able to control ISO, exposure, focus point for background blurriness and shutter speed. I am not a pro-photographer by any means but love the idea of playing with photography.

    If any one has experiences with the above apps or suggest another one I might have missed, feel free. I appreciate it. thanks

    Camera+ is a good app. Completely automatic, with options for manual control, should you ever need it. It now offers saving pictures as TIFF (uncompressed, but larger file size).

    Thanks for the reply

    Does the Camera+ app allow you to control the ISO? Thanks

    Darn it! I JUST purchased it through the App Store 10 mins ago.

    Any other apps that are free though the Apple Store app?

    You missed the boat on Camera + and ProCam 2, both of which have became free. You can change the ISO on the ProCam on the fly. Both great apps. Love it

    No camera app lets you change the ISO. Any app that claims that is just performing image processing after the shot. A real camera takes the photo at the ISO setting specified, but the iPhone camera doesn't support that.

    The default camera app is decent enough for me. I may try one of the other apps, if it has a quicker auto-focus lock.

    pro camera 8 is the best.

    ----------

    tiff may be a larger file but there is NO improvement of the quality. no app can't do that as all apps get the picture files AFTER it went through apple's processing.

    There's plenty of news about iOS 8 that it brings third-party apps ability to control iPhone camera's Shutter Speed, ISO, focus and white balance. Only thing you can't control is Aperture as it's fixed.

    Atleast I couldn't find much information about how the TIFF works on iPhone but according to this article the 645 Pro camera app saves the TIFFs before any jpeg compression is done. And with the new 'real' manual control possibilities it would be stupid from Apple not to support image saving to TIFF without the extra compression.
