There are a lot of difficulties that Youtubers and Photographers that not have very high budget face during their starting struggle. Mostly YouTubers are tired of finding the best manual camera apps for android devices so that they can easily control the settings for their videos manually and by this, they can, of course, be able to increase their quality of photos and videos into a high level.
Manual controls on a camera app give you the freedom to change many things in a video and photo such as Exposure, ISO, White Balance and many more.

#1:- Footej Camera
Footej Camera app is a very good and famous app available in Google Play which has the features that a YouTuber and a Photographer needed for doing Videography and Photography by their android devices.
It basically supports all the manual controls like managing Exposure value, ISO value, White Balance, Sensitivity of recording audio and many more in its premium version. But, if you are using the free version of this app, you will only be able to record the video maximum for 5 minutes.
I personally use this camera app for making my YouTube videos so that I can adjust the value of exposure,ISO and many more. So, on behalf of my personal experience, I am recommending this application to use if you are a YouTuber or Photographer and wants to get good quality videos and photos.
#2:- Open Camera
Open camera is one of the most widely used manual camera apps in android devices as this grants the users to use all the manual functions in free of cost.
It’s UI ( User Interface ) is very simple and use will definitely not going to face any problems in settings up this app and can use very easily for shooting videos and photos by your android device.
It also supports the external mic option so you can easily use an external microphone for recording your audio in videos.
I am personally not using this camera app now for recording my videos because it supports all the manual functions in my old devices like Xiaomi Redmi Note 3, but now in my newly bought devices like Redmi Note 4 & Note 5 Pro, it is not working that perfectly. So, I decided to use other apps for recording my YouTube Videos.
#3:- Bacon Camera
Bacon Camera app is another best manual camera app that I have ever used in my life.
It supports all the manual functions like adjusting the Exposure, ISO and audio levels. Also, it gives freedom to the user to focus on a particular thing, not that just default setting but it has a separate setting for this that you may find on the manual functions features.
I also used this app for a long time for making my youtube videos and it also helped me a lot and always gave me a good satisfying result to me. I stopped using this app now because after updating this camera app for many times, I don’t know whether the problem is in the app itself or my phone, but it starts lagging on my phone ( Redmi Note 5 Pro ) and this really irritated me a lot.
So, I finally decided to stop using this app for recording videos and taking photos. Try this application once and let me know whether you are also facing the lagging in your device or not in the comment section.
#4:- Camera FV-5 and Cinema FV-5
Camera FV-5 lite is a very good camera app available on Android devices by which you can take really amazing photos with manual controls like increasing and decreasing the Exposure & ISO value. This camera app may be the best application for taking photos after Google Camera.
Camera FV-5 is available in both FREE & PAID versions and the limits on the free version is that you will be going to see the ton of ads while using the application and also some of the features will be locked and can only access on the paid version of the Camera FV-5 app.

#5:- Manual Camera : DSLR Camera HD Professional
This app is now also one of the best manual camera apps for both photographers and videographers. This app also supports around all manual features that a photographer or a YouTuber want but the only bad thing about this application is that it’s UI is not that simple and you may face some difficulties for doing the all settings right on this app.
So guys, in this post I told you the names of the top 5 best manual camera apps available on play store for your android devices. I truly can’t say that all these apps will work perfectly on your android device and you will be able to always get the best results but, after trying so many apps personally, I found that these apps are the best for both photographers and YouTubers for their respective work.
