Absolutely worth $3

Runs a little slowly. Don’t know about battery power usage yet, but this app is incredible. Absolutely what I wanted.

Don’t look no farther!

It’s here and the only one needed!!!!!

Updated to one star as I contacted the developer weeks ago and have gotten no response. Getting refund from Apple. New to iOS, have always had Notes. As a photographer I wanted to take advantage of newer iPhone abilities to shoot RAW and have some manual control. Unfortunately this app was a let down as it’s longest shutter speed was only 1/15. Plus there is the annoying fake shutter sound with no option to turn it off. Finally today every pic I took with the app was blank. Too unreliable, and disappointing especially for a paid app. Uninstalling.

Lacking basic photography concepts.

Just a little tip...Daylight is higher on the Kelvin scale around (5600k), and tungsten is more around (3200k) the app has the symbols flip flopped. Warmer in color doesn’t mean a higher number on the Kelvin scale. I feel if you’re making a photography app this should be common knowledge. The histogram is pretty wonky. I’m fairly sure this is just a meter for how light or dark the frame is. A real histogram should be showing the underexposed and over exposed areas. Rather than just averaging it out on a bar graph. Can I get a refund?

It gives you the control of the camera you always wanted, but without the sacrifice of continuity. It looks almost exactly like the camera app that comes installed on iOS, but with more features. I love it!

Almost there

This app is great and does what I want it to, except for as soon as you swipe all the way to the right to "zoom" it freezes and you can't swipe back to your other options.

Simple and yet powerful

Probably the best camera app. It's so easy to use. You have control over focus, speed, and and ISO. I wish it had the option to save TIFF files.


Perfect user interface. Please add histogram.

Focus doesn't work

When shooting video, continuous focus doesn't work. Useless!!!

Very well done!

I wish you can lock some of the controls such as shutter speed ect when filming a vid. When you look back to review some of the footage you just took, then go back to record further, the settings all go back to Auto by its self. I wish the settings would stay how I left it.
