ProCamera 8, Camera+ also get full-on manual controls: tweak ISO, shutter speed, and white balance
After Manual shocked us a couple of days ago with its unseen-before full-on manual camera controls, our two favorite iPhone camera replacement apps have now also been updated with similarly rich capabilities.

ProCamera 7 scored the first place as our favorite iOS 7 camera replacement app thanks to its rich and intuitive controls, as well as extremely smooth, crash-free performance. Now, the developer behind it has updated it to ProCamera 8 ($3.99) for iOS 8 devices, retaining that nice esthetics, but now adding full-on manual controls. Here are some of the new settings you can adjust manually in ProCamera 8:

  • manually select ISO (from 32 to 2500), live preview
  • manually select shutter speeds (from 0.5” to 1/12000), live preview
  • live histogram with indications for over and underexposure
  • manual white balance with tips for correct values for different conditions (sunny, cloudy, incandescent lighting, etc)
  • select to turn the flash on, off, or use it as a fill light

Camera Plus ($1.99), on the other hand, is our runner-up in the best iPhone camera replacement app category, and now, it’s also been updated for iOS 8 with full-on manual controls. Its capabilities are similar to what Manual and ProCamera 8 offer, but the layout is a bit less intuitive and easy to tweak. On the upside, its price is also less expensive.

It's Camera+ and can't be written as Camera Plus since the latter is another product which has the remote capture capability
