PureShot is your top-quality filter-free (or #nofilter) app. It helps you capture digital photographs with the highest possible technical integrity—no other app can beat it!
You can then process these on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, or your computer, with no image processing taking place in-app.
You have instant access to everything that can be controlled on an iOS camera.
That means manual focus override—just swipe your finger up and down the viewfinder to control the lens position. And you even get Focus Peaking to help you identify what will be in perfect focus!
It means fully manual exposure control, as well as semi-automatic Shutter Priority and ISO Priority, together with fully automatic exposure with a choice of spot or matrix metering. Automatic and semi-automatic modes also include ±3 Ev. exposure compensation, while the on-screen exposure meter lets you judge your manual exposures to perfection.
And it means the choice of AWB or a selection of white balance presets—and even the ability to create and save a completely custom white balance. Or if you prefer automatic 18% grey card support, you have that too.
And you have all the information you need, all the time, including real-time exposure metering, real-time ISO and shutter-speed readings, Ev, real-time GPS data and a choice of histograms. And many aspects of the interface can be customized, so you can—for example—configure the Shutter Release button to behave the way you want.
• A choice of HI_Quality JPEG, MAX-Quality JPEG, TIFF or Camera RAW (on compatible hardware) output
• A choice of standard multi-zone or (positionable) spot-metering for AE
• Configurable tap-to-focus AF. Set-and-lock, or simply define the point-of-interest
• Standard 4:3, square 1:1, 5:5, 35mm 3:2 or HD 16:9 image ratio
• Choice of single shot, 3-shot burst or 3-shot exposure bracket (2-shot bracket on iPhone 4S)
• Real-time ISO, shutter-speed and comprehensive GPS readouts, with optional Ev100, Dynamic Ev, luminance or illuminance reading
• A choice of four real-time histogram options
• Switchable lenses on iPhone 7 plus (28mm and 57mm equivalents)
• AE Night Mode, for real extended shutter speeds of up to 1/2 sec
• Quality-optimized 6X digital zoom
• A comprehensive in-app User Guide
• Much, much more!
PureShot combines the unprecedented output quality of Jag.gr's 645 PRO with blistering performance and a compact user interface.

Ratings and Reviews
New version fixes the picture orientation problem - mostly
Pictures appear correctly in the native iOS Photos app but you still have to rotate the phone to see them in the PureShot viewer. I guess that's the part about PureShot only being a landscape camera.
One other small issue I'm still having - the picture size ratio button in the bottom right is often hit and changed inadvertently. My pictures are coming out in all different sizes.
Otherwise a very good camera alternative.
Needs better Image Stabilization support
For the most part Pure Shot is a great app. It gives you control over exposure, white balance, focus, and file format (including RAW) that otherwise isn't available with the default Camera app.
But ... unless I'm missing something Pure Shot does not fully support the Image Stabilization built into more recent iPhones (at least the iPhone X). It appears that IS isn't used at all when saving in RAW mode, and even when saving in JPG mode low light shots show much more camera shake than the Camera app. As a result Pure Shot is of little use to me in lower light shots. I'll keep it for other difficult lighting and focus situations, but mediocre IS support keeps it from being a go-to app.
My 2nd favorite camera app
I'm using 645 Pro more these days for landscapes and sunsets
but I keep PureShot set on auto bracketing for quick shots. I have a custom white balance I can quickly access for indoor lighting; I don't know of any apps by other developers that give the options I have with PureShot and 645.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
