CameraPixels is a unique manual photography app. The premium tools and intuitive UI make CameraPixels the best choice for professional mobile photographers. CameraPixels participated in Berkley Eclipse Megamovie 2017 thanks to its extensive raw bracketing.
CameraPixels is all-in-one capture solution, that supports multiple photo and video capture modes. Among them are Bracketing, Slow Shutter and Time-lapse modes. CameraPixels has the most advanced bracketing available on the iOS platform, which includes exposure and focus bracketing.
Best for macro photography
With CameraPixels you can capture the best macro shots, be it a single image or a series of images, called focus bracketing, which can later be combined into one all-in-focus photo (requires external app for focus stacking). If you have an external macro lens, let CameraPixels save its name to the EXIF data for you, so later you can always remember which lens was used. Currently CameraPixels supports Olloclip™, Loupe System™ and Moment™ lenses.
Best for professional HDR photography
CameraPixels has the most advanced exposure bracketing on iOS. With up to 15 images per bracket you can capture even the most difficult lighting situations. CameraPixels support auto-, iso and shutter-brackets, with an optional flash frame. The captured images can be used to create stunning HDR photos using your favorite professional HDR software.
CameraPixels has a simple and efficient UI. The most important information is always in front of your eyes, and this allows you to avoid surprises like an unexpected flash fire or the wrong output photo or video format. Stop being distracted by the uncertainty of the settings, concentrate on your capture!
ISO/Shutter priority modes
CameraPixels is among a few photography apps that support advanced exposure modes like ISO and Shutter priority. These modes are indispensable during dynamic photography when there is no time for adjusting manual exposure.
Histogram and clipping warnings
The histogram is a great tool to estimate your exposure. It can show you if the photo has under-exposed or over-exposed areas. Clipping warnings, on the other hand, can show you exactly where those under and over-exposed areas in your photo are.
On dual/triple-camera devices, CameraPixels can capture depth information alongside the colour photo. If the photo has depth information, in the preview window, two additional buttons appear (depth and portrait) that allow you to inspect the depth of the image and apply it to simulate an aperture.
CameraPixels was designed for professional photographers that value efficiency of their workflow. The unlimited presets, including the possibility to expose them to Widget make CameraPixels the ultimate photography tool.

Best app ever just one problem
It’s the best app ever would give it 5 but I recently restored my iPhone 7 and before I previously got the free app and did the purchase within the free app and now when I hit restore it won’t restore my purchases of 4.99$ please help
Developer Response ,
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help you with the issue. Thank you
Meh. Doesn’t support RAW on iphone 8
Doesn’t seem like it had been updated since iphone 8 came out; picture format only shows JPEG, TIFF and HEIF.
According to the description, raw (DNG) is supported on iphone 7, so this just seems like poor design
Update: The developer claims that the description mentions that DNG support requires IAP, but that is not clear from the language. There is one mention of a limit up to ‘HD resolution’, but HD is a term associated with video resolution, so that is hard to correlate with not supporting DNG for still images.
Developer Response ,
DNG format is only supported in full version (requires IAP). It's clearly stated in description
The app is good, with a lot of options and what I was looking for... 16:9 camera. The bad things is that by using the lite version you’re only able to take pictures at 720p.
