    I think with the new APIs, you'll see a ton of developers offering these features. I'm curious to see just how much control and how it compares to using a traditional DSLR. I still struggle when using ISO and never dabble with shutter speed.

    It would still be great to have those options there for those who do like to dabble.

    I can't wait to see all the manual controls in iOS 8. I'm pretty sure the iPhone 6 will have more new features to sweeten the deal.

    And I'm buying them as soon as my Plus arrives this afternoon and gets set up.

    Camera + is a must have. Been on my iPhone's for years.

    Unfortunately, Camera+ doesn't have manual shutter control. Only ISO, WB and focus. Haven't tried Pro Camera 8. VSCOcam has manual controls for focus, WB, ISO, Shutter and exposure.

    Yes it does, haven't tried it but it's there. Not working properly for you? ImageUploadedByiCafe Forums1411699248.872913.jpg

    Ok found it. Thanks! Being able to adjust ISO and shutter speed allows me to reduce a lot of noise in low light. It's too bad it only allows shutter speed down to 1/2s. I was hoping for at least the ability to manually start and stop the shutter to get light trails or let as much light hit the sensor to light up a really dark scene like the night sky with all the stars. I guess I'm asking for too much on a cellphone.

    Here's another nice 3rd party Camera. It's called ProShot. The developer first made it for Windows Phones. But has made it for iOS as well. It's free for a few days. It seems to be a nifty camera. Great presets. No after shot filters and etc.

    Features:

    1) Auto, P, M, C1, C2 modes like a true DSLR (to my knowledge this is the only app on the app store that has this)

    2) Unique MF assist feature

    3) Zoom with just one finger, up to 50X(!)

    4) Camera roll with EXIF data, support for media playback and delete

    ProShot by Edward Kezeli

    I think Eddie did well with this. If you don't have Camera+ or ProCamera 8, give this a shot. (pun unintended). It's free for now, so nothing to lose.
