Upgraded to the 6.0 on my Note 4 and still no Raw support? Did Samsung screw us over again or can this be turned on cause this is bs for something that is just a file format and has little to do with hardware.
wait what happened to my long exposure the most recent update and manual exposure made my note 5 crank up the brightness and then locks the manual exposure why? so no more S mode simple long exposures?
On the Nexus 5 this was a great alternative for people looking for a more advanced camera. It wasn't necessarily stable, frequently crashing, but the manual nature of the controls and RAW capture at least made it worth using. However, on the Nexus 5X it's awful. No EV, even though the manual control details on the CameraFV5 web site say that there are. It's too unreliable, usually hanging while trying to achieve focus, required a force close and restart, and the orientation only works in portrait and in landscape when the camera is towards your right hand. These points also apply to Cinema FV5, which is now barely better than the stock Android camera for video.
Normally five stars This is normally my go to camera app on my Samsung S6 (on android 5.1.1) but the latest version, although it has fixed a number of previous bugs, has broken RAW capture. I've enabled DNG capture but it only takes JPGs. Old version captured RAW nicely.
Was a great app. Since the latest update Camera FV-5 has been conflicting with Messenger. This never happened before. Emails to the developer have gone unanswered. Still waiting! Will re-evaluate my rating if/when this bug has been fixed. As of today 25.04.16, still no reply from the developer. If I could rate this zero stars, I would, just based on the customer service. Moved to Open Camera. Works great and it's free! Does just about everything FV-5 does without the cost or the hassle from the developer.
Generally quite good for me as a long time SLR user. Some features missing that may have been locked out by Motorola but that's OK i still have enough control and it's a far better level of control over the standard camera app. I didn't give it 5 stars because it has crashed a couple of times but since a reboot it's been OK so lets see how that goes.
- New: complete rewrite of the app for the all the recent Samsung Galaxy devices (Note 5, S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, S7, S7 edge). Smoother camera operation, more stable and faster RAW capture on all devices, manual focus and manual exposure up to 10 seconds on all devices.
- Fixed: limited picture resolution after some recent Samsung devices (S6/S7 series) got updated to Android 6. Thanks Samsung for 'improving' the experience for your users and making developer lives easier.
