Manual Camera App Should be Your Next Purchase if You Own a Nexus 5 or Nexus 6


Looking for the next great camera app that can take advantage of the new camera API introduced with Android 5.0?Manual Camera may just be what you need. This app, in the short time I have spent with it, will without a doubt become my go-to camera app when I am using theNexus 6 or Nexus 5, the two devices it supports. 

With Manual Camera, you get a very clean and accessible layout, with shortcuts for flash, white balance, focus, ISO, shutter speed and exposure on the left side. On the right, you have gallery and settings shortcuts, a shutter button, and then a dial that lets you quickly control all of the settings from the left side. The camera starts in auto mode, which you should have no problems shooting in, but if you want to start tweaking the manual focus or ISO or shutter speed, you can do that with a tap on a button and spin on the dial. It’s pretty easy to figure out.

The camera also shoots in RAW, includes a few different shooting grids, and a shortcut to max out your phone’s brightness.

Also, did I mention how fast this camera app shoots? One of the problems I had with the Nexus 6 camera out of the box was the slow auto focus and shutter speeds, but those don’t seem to be a problem at all with this app. I haven’t been this excited to snap pictures with a Nexus in a long time.

Keep in mind that the app is brand new, so it should only get better over time.
