10 Best Android Camera Apps for Pro Photographers

Photos are the best way to capture our memories. As smartphones are becoming our on-the-go devices, we mostly use our smartphones to capture photos. But most of the time the stock camera doesn’t fulfil our expectations due to lack of features. There are tons of other camera apps available on the play store, But only a few of them help us to take our photos to the next level.

So here’s a list of properly organized camera apps for Android which will suit professional as well as geeky photographers.

Camera apps for Android

Camera Apps for Professionals

Here are some professional camera apps for android which includes a wide range of advanced functions that will help you to capture some amazing photos.

#Camera FV 5

If you are or want to become a photographer then this app is actually a cheap way to learn how to use a real DSLR. This apps gives you manual controls similar to a professional DSLR camera. So why would you need all these manual controls on an app? Especially when we have one tap camera apps like google camera.

Well, one benefit of having these manual controls is you don’t need to do as much as to edit the photo after you’ve taken it. For Example, if you’re using google camera, then you can use tap to focus or exposure, but you can’t adjust how much exposure or focus you want. With camera FV 5 you get some really awesome controls to play around with. To minimize the shakiness, you can also buy the best tripod or a selfie stick.

#DSLR Camera

DSLR camera tries to emulate DSLR features into your phone as much as possible. You can adjust every detail of your picture, But only when your hardware supports it. Honestly, the user interface is not that friendly and you cannot use your fingers to zoom while taking a picture.

Instead, there is a magnifying glass icon that allows us to do so. Apart from this, the app has the tendency to click great pictures because of so many functions available.

#Manual Camera

The manual camera offers a range of settings that most camera apps don’t offers. You can take control of every detail in your picture including focus, exposure, white balance, etc. One of the most interesting features is this app allows us to save the picture in lossless RAW format, so there are possibilities for further processing the image.

#A Better Camera

A better camera has a lot of interesting features like :

  • Multishot – Where you can take multiple pictures with the same background without getting the picture blurred. You can also capture Group portraits, Sequence shots.
  • Removing unwanted people/objects from your photograph.
  • Taking quick pictures, like taking 10 pictures in a row quickly.
  • Manual controls like focus, ISO, and shutter speed priority


VSCO Cam provides an Instagram-like experience, It combines a camera with sharing and editing functions. When it comes down to filters then VSCO Cam is the best. It has tons of cool filters which you won’t find in other camera apps. You can also import already snapped pictures and edit them with filters and presets.

Camera Apps For Selfie Addicts

Here are some of the best camera apps for people who just love to click pictures and share them on social media.

#Youcam Perfect- Selfie Cam

This is one of my favourite camera apps. It removes blemishes and improves skin tone colour which makes you look better in the picture. It has an inbuilt photo editor using which you can retouch your photos to adjust skin tone, easily remove wrinkles, erase pimples, edit tired eyes, add filters and reshape your face.

One of the best features is Real-time beautifying filters which means that you can see the effect live while taking the pictures.

#Candy Camera for Selfie

Similar to Youcam but the beautifying filters are a little unique which makes this app more interesting. There are so many filters which you will love and enjoy while taking selfies. It is an ultimate camera app that includes features like geo-tagging, live preview of filters, mute mode, custom album viewer, automatic saving and much more.

#Camera For Facebook

This app is totally built for taking selfies. Some of its features include real-time photo filters, Real-time blur effects, selfie timer for 2- 5 seconds. It also includes a photo editor where you can select frames after choosing your desired filter.

The photo editor provides features like whitening and smoothing of skin tone in one touch, Love quotes and many other kinds of stickers, Photoshop-like colour effects, etc. In final words, if you are looking for a photo editor then this should be your choice.

#Camera MX

Camera MX is a bit funky camera app. It doesn’t provide a range of features but you can shoot some great pictures and share them on social media with a few taps. One of the best features of this app is Shoot the Past which lets you capture what actually happened before the picture was captured, It’s quite similar to the live photos feature in iPhone 6S. Apart from having a range of features its user interface is quite simple and you won’t face any difficulties while capturing some awesome pictures with this app.


Perfect 365 is a perfect solution for self-portraits. It is actually a photo editor which has a wide range of features like applying makeup on your photos, removing skin imperfections, and you can also add a new hairstyle in a few taps. The makeovers look realistic as it detects your key facial points using a smart algorithm.
