What’s New

Version 2.0.2

In this version we have made several internal improvements.

In addition, Photon 2.0 introduces advanced White Balance tools and several enhancements to improve your photos and shooting experience. White balance is a critical component of manual controls that is often overshadowed by focus and exposure. For this update we decided to focus on it in particular, as it's our goal to continually reevaluate and improve our tools for your benefit. Here's what's new:

Advanced White Balance Tools:

* 3D Ball Control: Dive into an intuitive and precise way of setting white balance with our new 3D ball control. Adjust both temperature and tint simultaneously to get the perfect tone for every shot.

* Gray Card Detection: An 18% gray card is a standard piece of photography kit, and you can now use it with Photon! Just activate manual white balance, tap on the gray card option, point your viewfinder at the card, and tap confirm. That's it! Perfect white balance in every lighting condition has never been easier.

Fixes and Tweaks:

* Shutter Speed and ISO Stability: We have ensured controls are consistent in both orientations when shooting in 48 MP mode.

* Other minor bug fixes and tweaks.

As always, we're incredibly grateful for your continued support and feedback. Your insights are crucial in shaping Photon, and we're excited to see the stunning images you'll capture with these new features. As always, if you have any questions, concerns, suggestions, or photos to share please let us know via the in-app bug reporter or via

Thank you for choosing Photon, and happy shooting!

Amazing photography tool!

It’s SUPER easy to use! The manual shooting gives me full control of how I want to take my photos. I would recommend this to any beginner or professional photographer who wants the convenience of using their iPhone to take DSLR-quality photos!

FOCUS and Lens Control lacking

I just spent a twilight even at park to test this particular APP out! In many ways I’m impressed with the minimalist yet simple tools and controls exist, but I’m kinda surprised that I have no control over the wide angle, standard and telephoto lens controls!! They already exist in my iOS (13 Pro Max) iPhone, so I’m puzzled at the lack of that very basic professional feature. Please get back with me, maybe a guarantee that you’ll have it NEXT update… I might just spend the $40

Developer Response ,

Hi there! The lens switcher is located in the bottom right corner of the viewfinder. For additional assistance with the controls, we've produced a handy manual that outlines where everything is and how it works. If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask via the in-app bug reporter or You can find the manual here:
