Nowadays we can record full HD videos from our smartphones, and Samsung phones in particular have been noted for their great shooters. Although there are plenty of photo apps out on the market, CameraAce is unique in that in addition to adding filters and effects, it also helps manage your photographs as you take them.

Thanks to the developers over at Chainfire who’ve developed the DSLR Controller app, you can use your...
