What if you want to manually adjust focus, white balance, or ISO on your iPhone? Shoot in RAW or just with the iPhone 7 telephoto lens? Easy, get one of these great camera apps!

Whether you just want to take more stunning shots in general, or need to focus on something more specific, like long exposure, full manual control, or advanced editing, the App Store has several amazing camera apps that'll help you do just that. No matter what your iPhone photography needs are, there's something for everyone. Here are my current favorites!

Obscura Camera

Obscura's tagline is, "There's always a better camera then the one you have with you. And that's Obscura" – and they wouldn't be wrong!

The Obscura camera works by giving you complete control over options like shutter speed and contrast, and with the new iPhone, the ability to capture their breathtaking images in RAW format.

By adding layers and playing around in Obscura, users are able to get creative and professional with their iPhoneography snapshots, something your iPhone's standard camera can't really do.
