Moment launches camera app with focus on manual control


Moment, the makers of high-end accessory lenses for smartphones, have announced the newly revamped Moment camera app for iPhone and Android. According to Moment the app "provides full manual control and a DSLR shooting experience" and it looks like the programmers have tried their best to turn the marketing promises into reality. A basic version of the app has been available for a couple of years on iOS, but this launch marks a major redesign with manual controls added, as well as support for Android users for the first time.

The app offers full manual control over exposure, ISO, shutter speed, focus, and white balance via on-screen sliders. You can double-tap the screen to separate focus and exposure and on the iPhone version there is even a dual-stage shutter with half and full press, thanks to Apple's 3D Touch technology.


Photographers can shoot in Raw mode and select from HEIF, HEVC, TIFF, and JPEG image formats. In video mode you can change framerate and video modes from the main screen, without a need to dive into the menu.

If you own a smartphone with dual-camera, the Moment app allows you to manually control which camera module you want to shoot with. This feature is especially useful when using Moment or other accessory lenses. Other features include a Live Histogram and Auto Video Stabilization.

The app is free to download and try but you'll have to invest $2.99 for the iOS version and $1.99 for the Android version to get access to the complete feature set.
