By Will Global

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.

Custom exposure for your iPhone camera.

Featured in the NYTimes "If you like to manually adjust camera settings, you’ll love Manual".

A powerful camera app with full control over your image. Quickly and simply adjust all parameters of your image. No more tapping and hoping automatic can understand what you want. Take control.

Full independent control of

• Shutter
• White Balance
• Focus
• Exposure Compensation

Cool Things®

• Full RAW DNG capture (6s and above, iOS 10+)
• Live monitor automatic exposure values
• Live Histogram
• Level
• Photos save directly to Camera Roll
• Focus zoom
• Optional delayed shutter for long exposures
• Fill Flash Mode (Flashlight)
• Grid Overlays (Rule of Thirds, Square)

If you're a photographer tired of trying to tap your way to the exposure you want, then this is the app for you. Fighting to get the sweet spot between a blown out background and a silhouetted subject? Stop tapping and just set the ISO and shutter yourself, you know how, stop letting your silly pocket computer decide what looks good to you.

Be better than automatic. Shoot Manual.

Requires iOS 8 or later. Please note: iPhone lenses are fixed-aperture by design and do not have an adjustable iris.

RAW capture requires iOS 10 and only possible on iPhone SE, 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus and above.

What's New in Version 2.1

– Lens switcher for the iPhone 7 Plus. Tap the 1x button in the top icon row to toggle between the 28mm and 56mm lenses. Neat!
– New widget for fast access to Manual from lock screen! To add the widget swipe right on lock or home screen, scroll to bottom of widgets, tap Edit and add Manual as top item. Wow fast.
– We added some nice little haptic feedback bumps and clicks for iPhone 7. Feels good, man.
– Fixed dumb bug where RAW files didn't save location.
– Have you been working out?

Just a few reminders for handling the RAW DNG files:

– The Photos app doesn't support viewing DNG properly, so instead it shows the low resolution preview image embedded in the DNG.
– If an app doesn't understand DNG it will import the low resolution preview and look bad. Make sure it's compatible.
– Some apps will misread the metadata on the file as having a very small resolution, again this is the low res preview file being read. RAW always captures the full resolution of the sensor. You just need to open the DNG in a compatible app.

Customer Reviews


Daumen hoch für das ansprechende und intuitive Design.
Leider bietet die App bei Weitem nicht den Umfang wie andere Apps. Mit Lightroom Mobile, oder CameraPixels, eine App, die die Fotos als TIFF speichert, bietet deutlich mehr Bildinformationen als das DNG, welches diese App hier produziert! Das macht sich auch in der Dateigröße bemerkbar. Während DNGs über diese App mit einer Größe von ca. 10MB gespeichert werden, speichern andere Apps ca. 40MB große Dateien. Im Detailvergleich in Photoshop lassen sich erwartungsgemäß aus den größeren Dateien mehr Bildinfos entnehmen und zum Beispiel bei sehr dunklen Bildern bessere Ergebnisse realisieren.

RAW (DNG) hat volle Auflösung!

Entgegen anderer Rezensionen haben die DNG volle Auflösung. Lediglich die eingebettete JPEG-Vorschau ist niedrig aufgelöst. Unter Capture One oder Photoshop sind die DNG perfekt nutzbar. UI ist modern und durchdacht! Sehr schön und weiter so!

Gut aber RAW Dateien in schlechter Auflösung!

An sich bietet die App alles was man zum manuellen Fotografieren braucht. Die RAW Dateien haben jedoch eine miserable Auflösung, das muss geändert werden.
