Sprint Product Ambassador : Go Manual with your Nexus 6


I've been looking for a good camera app for use with all device for a few months now. I searched on line and found that the overall concise opinion showed Manual Camera as being one of the best.

I decided to download and try out the app, now I am pretty sure that I am one of the most frugal (some would say cheap) people out there, so for me to break down and actually spend $2.99 on an app is a lot.

That being said, I am happy that I purchased this app, it gives the feel of the point and shoot camera with all the options and even an dial on the bottom right.

Manual Camera is just what the name suggest, it gives the user control of a lot of aspects of the photo shooting process such as;

Shutter speed

Focus distance


White Balance

Exposure Compensation

geo tagging

Raw format (for post production)


Screen brightness

Sounds off/on

Manual Camera  takes full advantage of Google's lollipop's camera2 API.

For those who don't want to drop a thousand bucks for a DSLR, this app is for you. It lets you shoot excellent pictures like a pro.

I found some good youtube tutorials on the app to increase your knowledge and let you shoot like the pros.

For those who have kids, you know the struggle of getting your kids to hold the smile only for them to loose attention while your camera auto focuses and then takes a few seconds to take the actual shot.

Manual Camera is fast, the shutter speed will allow you to take those good pictures of your kids smiling with their eyes open (not an easy task).
