Another main feature of the Manual Camera app for Android is its ability to save or store photos in RAW format. You can actually save a photo twice, one with its JPEG format and a RAW format to process them with all its quality on your computer. There are also further options to set timer, on or off camera sounds and even a geo-tagging feature that adds your location data to your photos. The information button on the end provides you with tutorials and even allows you to contact the manufacturers in case of any troubles or doubts. The only drawback of the application is that it works only on selected Android devices. It’s not exactly the developers fault as the app is specially designed to make use of the Camera2 API of the Android Lollipop. Therefore, before downloading the app you must run a compatibility check to ensure whether the application is compatible or not.

Conclusion

With photography attaining new heights, having an almost replica of your professional camera in your smart phone is really a boon for many. Download Manual Camera for Android and unleash your photographic skills while having complete control of almost all the settings of your camera.
