I've used Camera FX and Camera FV-5 and I must say that the former is my primary camera app while the latter is a good alternative if you want to experiment

Where's Vignette? It's one of the best (if not THE best) IMO. The interface may be not be all bells and whistles like other apps, but the effects and the features are all there, with some unique features.
To compile this list, seems that they just spent 5 minutes on Google Play after having searched for "camera app"...

Pudding Camera is what I was using for a while because it seemed to take crisper pictures than my default camera. Recently started using the free version of Pro Capture, though, and may end up buying the full version. Love the reduced-noise option, and it comes with a panorama setting that works super well.

Stock HTC camera app is the best in every regard ;)

HTC ? yes but not only HTC, stock camera app is better on every android device

As a photographer, one will only keep android's stock camera app and a paid version of Camera FV-5 to each give easy capture and manual settings.

Google Camera needs to add manual white balance, and manual iso settings. Fancy filters are all fun and nice, but those other controls are far more important.

I'm surprised that hipstamatic isn't available for android. I love using it on my 1020.

Camera FV-5 here, I like the ability to customize my settings, like I do on my dSLR.

Android guys and gals help me out. I'm really considering switching to Android from Windows Phone if certain conditions are not met by this winter. Is there any Android app that will give me access to the camera's shutter speed on any Android smartphone besides the HTC One?(it already has that function built into the settings) I have the Lumia 1020 so I'm not going to switch for the One as much as I love the phone and I still want to be able to take control over my photography.

A Better Camera by Almalence has ISO Shutter speed control.

Thanks clarkjeferson. I'll give it a shot on my wife's Galaxy S5.

Camera FX Live: Please check this camera out. It has some great filters: play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nm.camerafx
Spent quite a time developing the filters.
