The corporate that introduced you one of the best glass on your cell gadget now provides you DSLR-like controls with their Professional Digicam app. Options embody full handbook adjustment over ISO, shutter pace, white steadiness, picture format and extra.

Second says the app is for “anybody in search of professional, handbook controls on their telephone.” Being certainly one of TechCrunch’s resident picture makers, I figured I ought to take the app out for a spin and pit it towards the inventory digicam app. I enlisted my photogenic buddy, Jackie, to be my muse.
Scrolling by the handbook settings was very simple and the UI by no means felt fumbly. The histogram is good to have and makes use of that iPhone notch nicely. The app doesn’t have portrait mode, nevertheless, which Jackie and I’d have cherished as a result of who doesn’t love that buttery (pretend) bokeh – amirite? Manipulating the publicity in video mode was equally as simple. The app didn’t have an audio meter or stage settings, so of us recording dialog or VO must plan accordingly. Fortunately, our shoot didn’t want it since we had been taking pictures slow-mo.
