MuseCam: A Manual Camera and Advanced Photo Editor for iOS

If you’re looking for yet another app to shoot and edit your photos, consider a new option recently announced called MuseCam. This app is promising a lot according to the company’s website. For starters, you’ve got film emulating presets in an interface that resembles what you see from VSCO, Instagram, EyeEm and RNI Films. What’s interesting about the interface is that as you swipe on the image itself, you’ll go to another photo in your camera roll.

What’s even more interesting is that ISO controls are available in very small increments. For example, you can shoot at 301, 302 or 304 ISO if you’d like. It’s a significantly different approach to photography and exposure controls that what we’ve seen in the photo world.


Beyond the really precise exposure settings, you can also select a lens blur tool that works very different from many other options out there. You can almost paint the defocusing onto the scene by tapping areas of the image–which is really cool.

For the photographers that want more from their mobile phone’s camera, this app seems like it will be quite powerful when combined with lots of cool accessories. Even if you don’t want to do this though, you can use your dedicated camera’s WiFi feature to beam the images to your phone and edit right then and there.

MuseCam is a free download for iOS devices.
