Hello,
Since I just got my iPhone SE I'm wondering which are the best apps to shoot some nice pictures and record good videos.
I need more settings than the basic apple camera app.

I've heard about Hydra for photo.
For video Filmic pro.
And for both Procam 3.
I don't know what else is on the store and since there are many of them, I don't know which ones I should consider, try and buy.

Thank you :)

Nobody?

I bought Filmic Pro after testing Filmmaker Pro and I like Filmic Pro. I know there is also MoviePro which has very good reviews.

As for camera app, I searched and created an exhaustive list of apps:
VSCO
Slow Shutter Cam
Hipstamatic
Proshot
Procam 3
Procamera +
Manual
Lighttrac
Camera +
Focus peaking
Pro HDR
Instagram
Facetune
Snapseed
Panorama 360 cities
360 panorama

Any of you using them and could give me a feedback?

Btw I also look for an app or a way to really hide picture from the "Photos" app on iOS because even if I put them hidden they will appear in the flux of all my pictures...

Thank you :)

In the Starbucks app, ProShot is currently the Pick of the Week. If you want my code to check it out, I'll gladly pass it over to you.

I recently downloaded Filmmaker Pro. It replaced Fly Labs Clips (they were recently bought by Google, which I don't care but the app stopped being updated) for me, or that's what I'm intending it to do. I've only just got it awhile ago.

Right now I'm using Shoot by ProCam, before that I was using Manual right when the new APIs came out for the iPhone 5S camera. What made me switch to Shoot was the TIFF support and their scroll/stepper system. I use Polarr to edit stuff afterwards and Pixelmator if I have to photoshop something.

I just got rid of Darkroom, haven't used VSCO, Snapseed, or Camera+ in a long time now. The reason I dropped Darkroom is because Polarr does a lot of the same better. Plus it uses numbers for settings.

There's also Enlight from the same guys who do Facetune. It's good if you like doing stuff to your photos besides filters like putting text and overlays.

Hydra isn't a very good general camera app. Hipstamatic is for artsy stuff.

Thank you for the great reply!

But I didn't get what you mean by giving me the code to try proshot...

For the rest I'm kinda leaning toward the app from Procam but can I ask you something: this shoot by Procam, is it the same camera app that is inside Procam 3? Because Procam 3 seems really to be the same, with video recording etc in addition to it.

Yes I found out hydra isn't good at all and I deleted it, and I have already stackables and enlight.
