Love it. But now colors in photos & video are strangely muted. Nearly grayscale, but there is some color. Very weird. Hence I've stopped using it. Cannot find a fix. It's not a camera mode, and doesn't depend on available light either. Don't remember when this first started, but seems like a year or more ago. LOVE all the options, settings, and camera controls. But it's unfortunately become unusable because of missing color. Other camera app doesn't have this issue.

This is hands down the best free 3rd party camera available. I failed to see that before and realized lately that some features on Samsung devices are locked to 3rd part apps. Example being the telephoto lens(es), 12-bit & 16-bit raw (only 10-bit is available as far as I can tell), 8k video, 108MP, macro mode and list goes on. For the most part, I like the exposure and focus bracketing. I usually wind up doing edits on a laptop, so those come in handy.

If you have a pixel 6, highly recommended. I find the pixel 6 to be great, particularly at selfies with the most recent updates. However, the camera app has kind of taken a step backwards. The final picture from the main shooter is overly processed and often doesn't look as good as the preview, for some reason. When I first got the phone, this app was lacking as the processing seemed nearly non-existent. Now, it is quite amazing. Just wish there were shutter controls.
