A game-changer if you're serious about mobile photography

Before deciding to give Camera-M a try, I went ahead and purchased Filmic Firstlight. I will just say this: what a mistake. Camera-M has a superb set of tools for a serious photographer. Just by trying its white balance tool, I came to a quick realization of its power. I had assumed Firstlight had a similar white balance feature as its older brother (Filmic Pro). Boy was I wrong! If you understand the importance of being able to set a custom white balance in your images look no further, Camera-M’s white balance tool makes Filmic Pro’s feel like an amateur’s toy. I'm still to try several other of its features, but I'm definitely impressed so far. I'll come back once I have updates on that.
To the people behind this app: guys, you really need to have more videos available. One of the reasons I was doubtful to jump on board was the lack of more tutorials. Time to let the world know you're out there!

Meanwhile, please do not hesitate to reach out to us for any issue or feedback:

Outshines Halide in nearly every way.

Before I came across this camera app, I had Halide on my phone as my manual camera app, but never found a reason to use it in lieu of the default camera app due to its lack of features that make it distinct (asides from limited manual camera options) compared to the normal camera app.

Now, after giving this camera app a whirl, I absolutely love it. It has all of the features Halide did, and much more than that to boot! Some of my favorite new features of this camera app compared to Halide are the max image processing, white balance color picker, and EXIF panels.

I've found all of these features incredibly useful, and the UI is clean and intuitive to boot! I'm surprised Halide got editor’s choice and not your app.

However, I sometimes still have to switch to the normal camera app for low light scenarios, and might find it useful if you added a low light mode to this app. Other than that, this is an absolutely stellar app!

P.S. there's a bug with the magnifier thing where the image doesn't un-freeze when you close the magnifier, making you have to reopen the app. Fix that, and I'll gladly make it 5 stars!

UPDATE: Apparently the reason why you were unable to recreate the bug is because it’s already been fixed! Updated to 5 stars as promised. Keep up the good work!

UPDATED RESPONSE: Thank you again for the updated response! We are glad it was fixed for you. For future concerns or feedback, please do not hesitate to reach out to us via email:
ORIGINAL RESPONSE: Thank you eyepet2002 for your kind words! We constantly work hard for Camera-M to be the best! Regarding Editor's Choice, we wonder the same :). For low light photography, we are working on few things and will have a solution out soon. For the magnifier issue, if possible, please email us with some more information (device type, etc)? We are, so far, unable to recreate the issue on our test devices.

I challenge every camera app... there are none better

This app doesn’t get the credit it deserves. I know Halide gets a lot of attention, and it’s a great app, but THIS APP IS AMAZING. I consider myself a good photographer and I push my phone to its limit when it’s my shooter. There’s no tool that offers as much flexibility with such a great interface. I happen to design UI interfaces for a living, so it’s important for me that this part of the app is strong, and it’s beyond strong here. There’s so many controls and they can all be modified lightening quick. I want to see this app get the credit it deserves... and for me that means atop the best camera app you can download. To the developer, you’ve got a huge fan here. Thank you for putting so much love and consideration into this product. Great job.
