Alongside the standard Google camera app, I've been using Manual Camera as my main camera app. The app starts with automatic setting, then you can choose any specific setting to take control of it via a rotating wheel. It's a simple process and includes exposure compensation on the wheel by default which works perfectly for me. If I could add one feature, I'd love to be able to select a 1:1 frame for shooting.

Best used for:

  • Camera app if you want full exposure control
