The only limit is your imagination and creativity!

Major features:

● All photographic parameters are adjustable and always at hand: exposure compensation, ISO, light metering mode, focus mode, white balance and program mode.
● DSLR-like viewfinder display: see exposure time, aperture and stops display with EV and bracketing settings, in real-time!
● Full fledged exposure bracketing: from 3 to 7 frames, unlimited stops spacing, plus custom EV shifting.
● Built-in intervalometer: make stunning timelapses (even bracketed/HDR timelapses) and time-controlled picture series.
● Program and Speed-priority modes.
● Long exposure support: take beautiful night photos and light trails with long exposure times up to 30 seconds**.
● JPEG, true 16-bit RAW in DNG format*, and lossless PNG photo capturing formats, perfect for post-processing.
● Manual shutter speed: from 1/80000 to 2", or the range available on your device*.
● All camera functions assignable to volume keys. You can adjust EV, ISO, color temperature and more using volume keys. Devices with hardware camera shutter key are also supported.

So after your DSLR, you will never miss a photo opportunity again, being able to capture it with the closer sensation to your DSLR as possible.

    have used this app for 9 years. this version is not working properly yet... the overriding of the fon's power does not work. so when doing a time-lapse you only get shots before power down. also the camera adjustments do not work. so if you like to have your contrast, saturation, etc set to your likings.... good luck ! happy they updated this but sucks the main features i use are still a dream. building it from ground up was probably good. but missing the basics is not get you any happy users.

    waste of time: - no voice control (thus, useless for long exposure); - does not save focus position (close app = refocus again); - does not write RAW files in continuous mode (thus, useless for long exposure); - does not show progress while long exp is taken; - continuous mode controls contradict themselves ("take 100 frames" does not mean "100 frames" at all); - impossible to set, say, 7 sec expo (only 4" and 8" but not 7"!). Other features are done better by the native app, no need to buy or

    Was very excited for the update, it fixed some of the exposure issues I was experiencing. Unfortunately, it will not force geotag (or I just can't figure out how to do it, I only see one checkbox for geotag). This is an important aspect of photos for me, as I use them to record locations for nature observations (mostly plants). About half of my photos I took one day do not have geotag. Also not a huge fan of the new manual focus method. Moving my thumb left to right on the screen is more difficult than the old up-down, and it requires reselecting the manual focus button between each photo, which is a pain when taking many photos at different levels of focus. Another free app I've been using will force geotag and essentially has the same options, so I will be switching back to that for now.

    This is a disaster. The old version worked well. This latest revision does not. The screen is totally black. You can fiddle with all the settings until you get something that kinda looks OK - but is out of focus. Turn the app off and on again and it's back to black. Sheesh.

    Glitched on update but running fantastically now. For a few days I could only get "App Not Installed" when I tried to open it, but the problem eventually resolved itself. I love the power and controls in this app, and have been a dedicated user for years. Highly recommend.

    Only thing that would make this near perfect is a dynamic symmetry grid! It's so easy to switch between grids! Some glitches even after the update, but I use this now instead of my native camera app, due to it having a live histogram, and better UI. The cons are there small lags sometimes,other than that I can not say, so I'll comment more on any bugs I find, after using the updated version better.

  18. Rusyd Rosman-avatar

    Rusyd Rosman


    At first, this camera app has so many glitches that it's pointless. I'm a paid user, I was so disappointed. However, recent updates are amazing. Loading image after capturing is so fast, before the update I have to wait a solid 3 minute for the image taken to be saved and if I do anything else on my phone and not wait for it to load - the image will be lost. Now, it's almost instant and it's very reliable, features offered actually works. Arguably the best camera app on the Android market.

    Yikes! What happened to manual exposure compensation! Not a good thing to get rid of! Do I have to find a new camera app? Thanks, I did find that, and it worked well. Appreciate the response. Next up, having more issues - I can't get it to output 16:9 images (despite having chosen every 16:9 resolution in the list, it stays on 4:3), and can't get "tap to take a picture" to work. Enabled or disabled, tapping will focus but not take a picture... Lastly, how does it integrate with video? I'm seeing no option to allow me to shoot video. I think the prior FV5 launched a different app to do that, but I'm not seeing an option for that here... Thanks. Thanks, but now since the update I have the weirdest behavior, I'm not sure how to describe it. If I shoot a portrait photo, the result is it takes the portrait picture and turns it 90 degrees and then stretches the aspect ratio out to landscape, so I end up with a photo that is very wide and short, and on it's side... Oops....? Sorry guys but I"m really struggling with this and it's unworkable at the moment.. I uninstalled completely and then reinstalled. I did the Lite version first. It seemed to be working fine - I set up some configuration things but didn't shoot anything, but the viewfinder image was fine. Then I installed the Pro version, it came up fine but the minute I flipped my phone over on it's side, BAM, back to the same problem... Help! Update. Just found out Lite works fine on my phone. It's only the Pro version that goes whacky...

    Yes, finally the update we've been waiting for. Thank you so much. This app is right back up there and replaced my Samsung camera app. The only issue I can find is that the .dng is not supported on the Samsung Note 10+ while in the .5x zoom (ultra wide). Even still, I'm willing to give this 5 stars again. If that issue could be resolved in an update, this would be the perfect photography app.

  21. Alexander Hansen-avatar

    Alexander Hansen


    This app use to be really good, until the new update, now I can no longer do long exposure shots of over 1 second, the UI has been changed which makes it less user friendly. If there was a way to override this 1 second exposure back to the 5 second exposure that the app use to be able to do then that would be great.

    Seems odd that the paid version has a lower rating of 2.7 than the free one of 3.8. Update: On opening the app following reinstallation I received a popup with the following text: "This app was built for an older version of Android and may not work properly. Try checking for updates, or contact the developer." Screenshot saved if required. The current version was released on 2017 is not an unreasonable statement.

    I've just downloaded and started using this app for night sky photography. It's easier to get decent night shots than with my old DSLR. I was expecting full manual control but of couse, cell cameras don't have shutter blades so no f-stop control. The UI is very intuitive, very short learning curve and the user guide is extremely helpful at explaining the features and in some cases, limitations of the app. I expect I'll be using the app for all my photography, it's excellent!

  35. Bruce Thibeault-avatar

    Bruce Thibeault


    This app may give you more control than your internal camera but dont count on it. The exposure compensation,white balance and focus modes work fine but the manual ISO setting does nothing. Go to settings/viewfinder/viewfinder overlays and check, /show camera parameters/. Now go back to the camera and choose an ISO number then take a photo. The shutter speed and ISO number the camera used will now appear at the top of your screen. For me the ISO number displayed is always different from the ISO I entered manually. Obviously the app is using auto ISO and ignoring your manual entry. In effect what this means is that the only control you have in choosing exposure is the two steps of exposure correction that can be made using that function. I now have other apps that allow me to set ISO and shutter speed so I know my phone has those capabilities. I would be very hesitant to pay for this app unless you know its working as advertised. What I like about this app is that the controls are at the bottom and to one side of the screen. Other apps crowd too many functions into the area of the shutter button and the icons tend to be small and hard to see which makes settings hard to fine tune.

  36. Holley Kline-avatar

    Similar to other users, long exposure is no longer possible with the update. Where I used to be able to do the full 30 seconds, I am now limited to 3 seconds. Originally downloaded and purchased this app to get controls for some star shots and now can't even do that. Will keep the download, hoping for an update to fix this, but it's totally unusable for me at the moment. *Update 8/28/20: newest update has not resolved issue, even though developer says it is fixed

    It's been more than a year still no news of the new app. I would not have cared but the app is buggy in OnePlus 7 Pro, intervalometer crashes the app, no aux camera switching, saved photo sometimes flipped, focus locking often doesn't work still focuses after tapping the screen and some more small bugs. The beta program is full but atleast let the ones who paid for the app test the new version, the google group says you are not authorised to view the group.

    my camera FV-5 pro disappeared. When i went to play store to get it again this is all that I could get. Does not work well. Poor quality, slow to open, not all features available etc. Tried different drivers unsuccessfully. Removed it. Tried light better but still poor quality. Using my Samsung s8 app. Really loved pro. States that if you upgrade your former app will still be available. I would be careful.

    Hi, I've had this app a while. I have a Doogee S90 ruggedized phone and the app worked great. I recently needed another and got the S90 pro version, and autofocus on near objects is terrible! It's fine why the default app on the phone PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP!

    The photos clicked using this app(even the pro version with all unlocked resolutions) have a much more grain content than the pictures taken by the default camera app. The features provided by the app are fantastic but in the end the picture quality matters and it's of no use if you get more noisy pictures on this app than the default one. Please look into the matter and try to solve it as soon as possible. Otherwise I expect a full refund. For reference, my device is redmi note 5 pro, Xiaomi.

    Like so many, I used to love this app for the control it gave me over my galaxy s4 camera. Since upgrading to an s10+, it is all but useless, hence the 1 star. The developer posted on his website last summer that new version in the works to take full advantage of new camera features. A beta program is in process, but nothing else from the developer in 8 months. VERY frustrating! If/when new fully functional version comes out I do not expect it to be a free upgrade, willing to pay after test.

    What used to be the camera app of choice is no longer of any use. No kept up to date to new android versions nor ported to new devices. It is pity but as it evolved with time - basically it has not - it is currently useless. It just freezes and when it happens I can take a pic, this is way inferior to those by the stock cam not to say free ported gcams. I will even remove it from my device (a Rn8t).

    I used to love this app as it gave me more control than my phone's default camera app, but it no longer appears to function. It crashes more often than not when I attempt to take a photo, or it will freeze and lock up my phone. It also appears that some settings that used to be present have been removed. I paid full price for this app as well as the video version and wish I could get back what I paid, but I did love the app when I purchased it years ago. A shame it no longer works.

    Rarely works correctly. Stock camera app better. I have used this with a redmi note 7 and it's great when it works, but often it doesn't take a second picture unless I close the app. I have the sounds set to off but it still makes sounds.

    This app is fantastic, the GUI is great and the ability to manually control all the main camera functions is exactly what i was looking for and exactly what i got. The image quality is far superior to the standard Android app. Unfortunately the view finder image is upside down when shooting. I'm aware this is due to sensor orientation in different phones but i have emailed the developer and had no response. Can you update the app for compatibility with the Alcatel 3V or suggest a workaround?

    Great app. Takes fantastic pictures in Raw PNG format. Very clear pictures. Great focusing ability. One small niggle is that it is too easy to accidently touch the video camera mode and lose whatever pictures you have just taken that haven't completed their background processing. I've lost a lot of good shots because of that. It is annoying to say the least. But great camera app.

    Not sure if you should buy it? Try the Lite version; it has all the features, but just limit your resolution. Few camera apps are so complete in giving you tools to take a great picture. No, it doesn't have filter; the tools are to TAKE a picture and not to modify it later. And remember that your phone hardware must give the software allow those too.

    It's outdated and buggy. It doesn't use your hardware at its fullest. My favorite photography app right now it's the GoogleCam Port (not the one in the playstore) as it takes HDR+ pictures with more detail and better colors than any other app right now, it also saves the HDR+ file in raw so you get a raw file thats considerably more clear and detailed than the ones FV-5 produces at half the size. I bought this app like almost two years ago and it never got updated, so I must leave it behind.

    The app is great. But has a couple of flaws considering this is a paid version. This has a intervals Meyer for time lapses but does not have inbuilt option to create the video. We have to download other apps for creating the time lapses. Also, RAW mode is not working with Poco F1. My Poco F1 can take RAW images using other apps. There is scope for improvement.

    Have had varied success with this app on the past. Now on Note 9, app crashes as soon as I enable RAW mode. Once that's done, app will no longer launch (force close every time). Only solution seems to be uninstall and reinstall. Without RAW mode, longest exposure available is 1/10s, which is 9.9 seconds shorter than the longest exposure available on the Note 9 camera app

    Dont waste your money. It wasn't even working at first. I had to swap to legacy driver to get it to work, while the lite version didnt have this issue. There are also a few features missing in this one that were in the lite version. Things such as the manual focus I could not find in the Pro version of the app. That was really the only reason that I was buying this app in the first place. It's just the preinstalled camera app with a new Ui and quite a bit less stable.

    This app seems not to be maintained anymore. It's a shame, it used to be an excellent app getting the most out of my old Huawei P7. It still sort of works on more recent hardware, but can't use multiple optics (wide angle, tele), and is crashy. On the Mi 9 SE it claims to be able to save DNG but the view finder stays black. On the plus side, when it works, the result seems more natural. Adobe Lr seems to do DNG on 9SE. I paid for both Camera & Cinema FV-5, seeing them abandoned is a bit sad.

    **WARNING** I recommend that you do not purchase this app. I have had problems which make it unusable and I have had no reply to emails or tweets. The app hasn't been updated for nearly 2 years *** The full version is not working properly, rotates and un rotates pictures, then crashes every picture. The lite version didn't do this. I've emailed developer for a refund. This is a shame, of the 5 or 6 apps I tried this was closest to most faithful colour capture and I liked the layout of the ui.

    Avoid this app. It really looks good & has histograms, which is the main reason I got it. Trouble is, it constantly crashes on my Motorola Z-Play. All apps & phone is using the latest updates. I've sent the crash log a couple of times to the developer, & have asked for a refund. Developer is totally unresponsive.

    I love this app but for some reason it's saving photos with the date 12/31/1969. I can't figure out how to fix this and it kinda bugs me when I'm trying to post them places and have to scroll all the way down just to find them, in my album app i have to manually change the date when i didnt have to before. this is the only app that does this as the video app doesn't do it. just because of this I can't and wont give 5 stars till its fixed.

    Nice app. Neat distribution of controls. Love the manual focus slider and the white balance lock. The app has some major bugs though. It doesn't work well with moto g8 play or plus. Shutter button freezes after one, two or three shots. Can you fix it? Can you build support for wide angle camera lens on the aforementioned devices? A 50 ISO would be nice, too! Thanks!

    I paid for this app, thinking it to be worth it. I used it for the first time today on my Moto G5 Plus but found it stopping every time I clicked a picture and therefor having to re-open it beore taking each picture. This is absolutely not expected. Please do something about this. Secondly, is there a detailed manual somewhere explaining how tto use the various settings in manual mode? That would be really helpful.

    This isn't a complaint, so much as a possible bug report... I have a cat s-41, and the app is showing 4208x3120 as the highest possible resolution in the camera information section, but when I go to set the actual resolution in the app, it lists 3840x1920(8.3mp} and 3264x2448(8mp) as the highest possible image resolution. The camera itself is listed as being a 13 mp camera by bullit group (caterpillar - the phone maker). The app still takes fantastic photos with amazing levels of manual control. I love that.

    Tha firs camera app I've bought and still one of the best. For the developers, please update the image resolution settings to match any screen like my Samsung Galaxy J4+ which can take photos with a 2.05 aspect ratio and fix a bug when changing the ISO, Focus mode and Light calculation mode). Today I've changed the settings to ISO 100, Point to focus and Light calculation mode from point to average and the screen went way darker and not change until I restarted the app no matter what I did.

    Edit: It's not only this app but seems like any third party camera app. Original: Not sure why whenever I try to use my back camera the screen is black. But when I switch to the front camera it's fine. So far the only solution is to reboot my phone and I don't want to have to do that every time I use this app

  79. Adam Corkett-avatar

    When I first got this app it had much more control, I could for example force bulb mode, now I can't even get a 1 second exposure. There seems to be no logic to this, my built in camera app can go to 10 seconds. It's a bit of a let down, the app ceases to serve the purpose I bought it for.

    Went to Android 9 and the app doesn't like it. Many, many attempts to gain further details and/or see if there would be a fix, but I encountered terrible, horrible customer service, if it even exists. No acknowledgement what so ever! Got my $$$, looks like that's all they wanted🖕

    The selfie camera goes black on switching to it - you have to put the app in background and then bring her back again to get rid of the black screen. The Exposure Compensation appears twice on viewfinder - once as menu and once directly as a slider. The Modes menu is confusing and hard to manage. Not all the sounds are nice - while saving the foto it makes a funny noise. This app looks more like a beta.

    Wanted to love it but it kept crashing. Liked the look and feel but if it's not stable on a standard Pixel XL phone, it's useless. Back to my other camera app which doesn't crash. As it doesn't work can't give more than one star which is disappointing.

    What happened to Camera FV-5? For years, it was my favorite camera app and had a near-perfect rating. The developers already you have abandoned it, and completely ignore the major bugs it's developed. My current.showstopper is when RAW capture is enabled, the viewfinder is completely black. My camera supports RAW capture in the default phone camera app, but enabling it in FV-5 completely breaks the app functionality.

    I have Lg g7 thinq and it has manual mode with intuitive app which i love, but i cant change exposure. So i download this app in the first place. Though this app fulfilled my requirement, the app is not as amooth as my stock one. It crashes multiple times. Most sad thing about thia app, when i opt for raw, it doesn't show anything on view finder. I think it doesn't work on my device. So i overall i am disappointed.

    Portrait or landscape. This app can't figure it out it takes forever to switch if it even does. User modes are not clear. Sort of confusing. Where is this night mode I read about in the manual I can't seem to find it anywhere. I Will update after this switching aspects gets fixed. Otherwise app is basically unusable.

    The app is unusable with Xperia XZ1 Compact. It shows only 8MP max resolution (I could live with that) and it gets stuck after taking one or two photos every time. It just shows a rotating circle and won't do anything. For taking another photo I have to kill and restart the app or change to front camera and back. Weird is that the Lite version works alright.

    App crashes constantly. This otherwise great app crashes & then refuses to reopen without completely uninstalling, reinstalling, then rolling the dice on how long it will work this time. Wish I hadn't paid for pro version. If it helps the devs any, app crashes the very second I tick the box to capture RAW/DNG files along with JPEGS. Seems to work with JPEGs but what was the point of purchasing a decent camera app if I can only shoot raw? using galaxy S9.

    Worked great on my Android 8.0 device. Doesn't work on Android 9.0. Maximum resolution setting is 5MP and even then the photos clearly are nowhere near 5MP.

    POS app! Nokia 6.1 with os 8 or 9 installed and this app works like shite! Laggy and hangs a lot. Once you take a pic the app takes a full min to save the pic to photos. And if you minimize the app before the pic saves you loose the picture! Went to support website and the FAQ is empty! Sent an email to support 2x times and never received a reply or even an acknowledgement they received my email. Nokia 6.1 has zeiss optics and a decent ccd chip. This app is garbage! Don't buy it!

    The camera app works well, very granular controls, but the video forces you to press an extra button to save the video, the button is not very prominent, and you can't change the settings to auto-save vids. I've lost a couple of really great vids because of this, never used any other app that makes you do this.

    The UI rotation keeps breaking after you view your photos. The bracketing feature doesn't change the exposure between shots, doesn't follow the settings. The photos you take aren't shown even if you have review enabled. It doesn't have HDR capabilities like the default camera app.

    Installed yesterday trying to get some of the Aurora Borealis on my trip to Iceland. It didn't save any picture. (Checked permissions, location folder to save,, several settings but...nada).I lost so much time trying o make it work that I almost didn't have any left to watch the main event. In the end I used the stock camera with less options. Tried to refund in Google store and it didn't let me. Stay away from it....

    Everything is great but the only issue is that after taking a picture and reviewing it and returning back to take another pic the display rotates in a weird manner. And another thing is that I can't find the slow shutter speed option like 1/500 or 1/3000.

    mediocre. While the app is suitable for the average cell phone, my factory camera app provided by Sony is better because the Camera FV-5 app doesn't enable my camera's full iso (only going to just under 5000 iso, my phone is designed to reach 12,000 iso) or my camera's full resolution. This app needs to be updated for the current cell phone camera market.

    very good app, plenty of tools & customisation and the in-frame adjustments show correctly. Nice that it shows you the B&W image when you select B&W photography - images are quite flat IMO, but contrast is a personal choice and can be tweaked after I guess. Lost a star as the app is more flaky & 'do not show again' pop ups ignore this and are an annoying nuisance on my Pixel 3a phone.

    First, i think you should add the ability to control shutter speeds. My stock cameras expert mode has it. Second, ISO increments should be smaller, like going from ISO 800 to ISO 1600, there should be something in between like ISO 1200
