Good camera but still buggy I was using FV-5 before but I need to download another app for video. But the engineers are still improving the OpenCamera app. Now, it saves the video focus settings so this app is always ready stay Infinity or Auto Focus so it doesn't refocus while recording a video. It helps when there's an incident and you want to capture it right away without re-adjusting my focus settings. The only problem now is the video light setting is buggy. -Moto X Pure Edition Android 6
Between 2 successive video shoots, app screen froze. This doesn't happen on my other camera apps. As a result, I had to shut the app and relaunch it to shoot the 2nd video. I'll study this behavior further and update the review if I notice a different behavior. Also, is it possible to add a pause button for the video recorder? This might be a deal clincher.
The only free app for pro shooting This app has many important features like pro. But some of its features really bugging me...1) It shoots b&w photos of focused objects though my phone has fully raw capability. 2) The resolution is quite low(of 12mp highest only in back camera) though my phone has 16mp back camera module. 3) In video recording(UHD) it has same problem(8mp max). Two important features are missing. 1)The inbuilt gallery app for editing and enhancing(for both raw and jpeg). 2)Camera can't capture photo in lossless PNG format.
It's a good camera and a well built app. I'm going to have to replace it though because the photos in my gallery taken with Open Camera ALWAYS have to be rotated to view them properly or to use them. I wish I could sort that out, really hate finding another app but that kinda makes me crazy.
No sqaure mode + slow response Got this hoping for a simple 1:1 ratio for instagram. There is also a huge delay after you press the shutter button. If you move a second after you snap the pics are blurry and useless. Used Samsung note 3 Samsung is known for there responsive cameras.
Voice capture does not work! Every time I use the voice capture function it stops working and kicks me out of the app. Sucks! Also, does not auto focus until you press capture. How do you know what you are capturing if you can't see it clearly. Fix it and I might re-evaluate.
