Reviews From google play store

Great Professional Camera app. (1.)But video recording is a problem. The recorded file is only some kilo bytes in size, but shows that it has recorded about 20 hours of video. I think that it is an audio sync issue.. When audio recording was disabled, video recording worked smoothly. There was no problem. The file was working fine. (2.)My mobile has a multi rear camera setup. Is it possible to have professional photography control over the secondary (wide angle) camera?

Got external mic. My stock camera app on my Moto G6 would not allow an external mic to work. When plugging one in, camera app just ignored it and continued to record with onboard mic. I had about given up on it then decided to try this app. What do you know, this app had a setting for external mic and external mic now works. I am going to knock 2 Stars off though because it will not record a video at 1080p 60 fps. The stock camera app will do it but open camera won't

Yay! An app that doesn't crash, doesn't limit you on silly things, has a wide range of useful settings. It is also the only app that I've found so far that allows me to change the audio source to get rid of an annoying rubbing sound that appears during video recording (not when I use audio rec apps) ("optimised for voice calling" is best) One request please, I'd like to have a quick access bottom onscreen with which to change capture resolution please

This app is terrible, the quality vs my Pixel is flat-out disgusting. it gives you an impression that it's taken an amazing photo until you zoom in. I took a picture of a car and the rim was hovering off of the tire and there was a gap between the edge of the rim and the actual tire. When I took a picture with my normal camera app it did not have this issue or affect at all, in fact the picture was clear accurate and color tones were exactly what I'm looking at.

I love this app, would be 5 stars. But since updating my OnePlus 7 Pro to Android 10 it hasn't worked. It says it's recording and the gyro level works, but on screen is a stillframe and it doesn't save anything. This is only on the OnePlus 7 Pro, my friends Android 10 phone still works with it

A no nonsense app. It works great in my Motorola x Force which has a great camera sensor. I use this app for playing around with the manual settings which are absent in the default Motorola camera app (the recent phones from Motorola has the manual features though). Great work Open Camera Team!

1 star for attention. It is a very good app. Big issue I am facing is it is this. When using a remote shutter control the video stops recording after 1m 27 seconds. As far as I can tell the remote shutter goes to «sleep mode» and OPen Camera treats this as a stop signal. Which is bad :( It is hard to fix? Thank you very much.

Works well for the most part. However, after trying out changing the video Bitrate on the camera, it records the video fine but there is some weird desync issue. After the videos are saves to the gallery, I try to play them. The audio track plays but the video stays still, and then when the duration of the video is up, the video starts playing at the timer indicates about 11 minutes for a 30 second video, which is quite odd. Tried changing internal storage and external, same issue

Galaxy S 9 is capable of 60 fps on 1920x 1080. Please correct this error..thank you..other than that I have no issues. I compared this with the original camera on the Galaxy S9. The S9 is also capable of 60 FPS on UHD. Could we please correct these 2 errors . Thanks, Lee

Excellent for my interests due to the amount of manual control. The only reason the vote isn't five is that the awful auto everything on phone vendor camera app tweaks out 10 times zoom where Open Camera only gets 8 times. I hope it's an optical ability and not computed in which case I hope Open Camera is missing out on the last 2 times zoom and some day an upgrade will see me change my vote to five.

I actually added more different camera apps, I still find this one the best of all. The pictures are crystal clear and above all, the are no annoying ads. Yay JOB WELL DONE and thank you for this great app.

3 stars lost because of the de-sync when using external mics. Also, it feels sluggish and doesn't stabilize the footage as good as the built-in camera. Because of these reasons, I don't see why I should use this over the stock camera app. Edit: dropping this 1 star further. Bro, I'm a dev, let's stop blaming the driver. Also, tried "other" apps, and my rode and boya mics works fine mate.

I needed something that allowed me to use an external microphone, since the preinstalled camera app on my phone wasn't doing it. It works great for that purpose! I haven't done anything else with it yet. I'll update later (assuming I remember to).

hi, i use this app to get date time stamped photos . here is a suggestion - if you take a picture which is not perfectly vertical then image looks distorted . if we use gravity sensor that measures component of acceleration along axes then phone's vertical position can be ascertained before clicking picture . hope you can incorporate this feature in your app. i can explain further if you are interested .thanks .

Absolutely phenomenal software, a definite must-have. Beats default camera software by miles with access to tons of hidden settings, extra modes, and all full manual options. The design, quality, and execution of this app are stellar, and unmatched by even the top paid alternatives. Highly recommended to everyone, and high praise to the dev.

I used this app to record video and the mp4 file is only audio with a solid picture though the whole thing. That's over an hour of footage I can't recreate because I only had one chance to record it. I tested it multiple times and this app continues to produce unusable files (even in short videos) while other apps don't have this problem

(1.47.3) It works okay, but your claim about updating it's Camera2 api support is misleading. On my device, there is NO "Camera api" setting ANYWHERE. Even if my device didn't FULLY support Camera2 api (which wouldn't surprise me), I would assume (especially from your latest change log) that there would at least be a grayed out menu setting for it in the Settings anyway.

super app can do so much but I just can't figure out how to turn off that annoying beep at the beginning of video shooting. and the sound of a photo shoot. if there is not such a possibility I would welcome it.

Without a doubt, the best damn free camera app out there, IMO. I love this app! I've used it on my Nexus 4, LG V20, and now my LG V30. Update: just downloaded HedgeCam v2.10b, and it looks promising. Appears to be based on Open Camera.

Excellent, I installed this app on Zenfone max pro M1. After update pie, i think my phone have problem about asus stock camera app, it take a long time to initial when open application, But this application can replace stock camera app. fast and reliable when i want to use camera instantly.

Superb. Solved the problem of Huawei phone not recognising an external mic and looks like loads of other features as well. Would gladly buy this app to turn off any adverts but can't find a purchasing option.

Amazingly functional photo app which permit a user to have a uniform photography experience across various Android mobile devices. Slightly clunky — I would appreciate a quick switch feature for alternating between a user's most recently used scene modes.

This camera app is mostly rubbish quality. It's ability to zoom in on, and focus on text is non-existent. It may take a picture quicker than the standard android camera but that's where it ends. While this app has many features over the standard android camera, none are actually any good.

It's good but sometimes it missed mic. Video remain mute. And it happens in long videos most of the time. Is it because of any setting? Or anything else I am missing? Pls fix it or clear it

Very Bad!!! If you warn about Low space. You should have saved the video immediately by cutting it. Not completely wasting it! I am filming for almost 30 mins for my Vlog and then the app just warns about low space but it is still recording. And then after I record, when I checked my Gallery, it is not there anymore! Waste of Time, Waste of Money and Waste of materials since my vlog is about crafting.

First time using camera app that did not ship with my phone. This one has lots of settings to play with and interface is easy to figure out. My S10+ has 3 cameras in the rear but haven't been able to access all of them yet. Will dig around some more.

Omg... Previous version rear camera worked after lame moto stopped working. Now after update you do not work? Oy. This is why people Stick with iPhone... If i buy expensive iPhone THE APPS WILL WORK! THE CAMERA WILL WORK!

Records UHD video for just 11 min, tried many times. Just shifted app storage from internal memory to external storage (SD card). This is closed after 11 min without any warning.

It's very productive and helps me make professional content right on my mobile phone. I would recommend however that the developers should include fisheye feature for both video shoot and photo, video stabilization and time lapse. Otherwise it's an excellent camera app by far.

NOKIA 8 user: I really wish you bring back BW Sensor Video recording to nokia 8. I wish we could use picture in picture mode in your camera app too. We would also like 60fps and slow mo in your app. There is also sound recording problem with all apps about this phone. Try using recording sea sound for example

Really Great camera app! Just recently though it quit focusing when I touch the screen. May be something I need to do. Will be checking everything out. I use the most every day!

This app was great until the latest update. Now the problem is that photos and images does not save after a click. Would appreciate I'd this issue can be fixed at the earliest. Thanks!

Hey Mark. Great app. My note 8s rear camera broke with your app it allowed me to switch to selfie mode unlike the stock camera. One feature they took away from us note users I believe it was available on the note 5 but definitely on the note 4 was the dual camera recording. Is this a feature you could add?

What happened to the Open Camera gallery when you click the preview icon? It no longer opens on click, with an easy trim feature. Now, it forces me to open a different software which I don't like at all.

This is a fantastic app! Just got back from Egypt and the pictures taken with it and Pixel 3 are absolutely stunning. Can you recommend a gallery app that works with it? Don't want Google sharing my photos with theirs and I'm trying to get away from simple gallery.

I use it to record my videos for Youtube and Facebook. I highly recommend it and above all, it's free and without ads. Cannot thank the team enough. Good job people and keep up the good work

My phone camera didn't allow using external microphone. But I found out from a YouTuber that this app allows it. Thank you guys! And my front camera used to record in 720. This app does it in 1080 wow

Im using open camera for vlogging, news and reviews on youtube, next will test for cinematic as last update. Cant wait, lol! This app was very helpfull on learning basic photography or videos. No ads for sure, lil bugs are no big deal. Thank you!

It's good camera's app,but sometimes it doesn't save selfie photos.Would like it had more settings like audio bitrate,audio sample rate, video size per bitrate (shows how much it takes space when recorded in certain bitrate)...

Finally read the instructions. What a powerful app for a phone camera! Going to try shooting stock travel photos now, see if my agency cares that they're from a phone. Just wish my DROID MAXX 2 supported manual focus...

Allows for great control and modification but can be overwhelming at times. Also, how do I fix the pictures from always coming out so dark?!? It seems like a simple fix but isn't!

it is a very good camera app. it is not perfect but i love it. a lot of options to choose from. However i hope will be able to see layout improvement in Settings.

Doesn't always work with an external microphone.. Hours of work wasted due to some bug.. Previously worked well.. Atleast provide a audio monitoring bar so that we know it's working...

it helps me a lot to connect my external microphone to my huawei and it works but the brightness will automatically go in maximum whenever you click the app, it's anooyyyyiinggg. please fix it.

Just click gear and in the first settings list there is a long text option for camera2 API select this for manual focus which works amazing and I can't understand why it is not in every camera app. It's the only way to focus macro.

Perfect for work! Chose a 2MP resoloution. Ability to add titles and date stamps To the author - Is there a way that the text field we add becomes the date+text as a filename for the image? That would be so awesome!

Great features and no ads. Invest one hour of your time to explore all the features and you'll never need another camera app.

I think i tried all camera apps and this is the best one. If it could read QR codes would be 5 stars and i could remove all QR apps and deactivate the original phone camera app

Have the new Samsung a80 with a great camera, but the default camera app is a little weak at focusing and taking clear pictures, this app was an improvement, and doesn't contain ads like all the others

Pretty alright app, I just have one problem. There's no full resolution option for my samsung galaxy A50 camera. The biggest resolution is 16:9 but my built in camera software has a full screen resolution.

These are very good application for best picture qualities. I am also using this application. but you should try it

this is great I love this so much you guys can get it it's like so fine and but when it told me that I had to freaking rate it that was so annoying but it doesn't matterso yeah you guys can definitely get this and like it's really cool it's really fine I like the recordings you can also put it in slow motion cuz I use it for tik Tok in like it's super good cuz I like it why notalso I recommend you guys getting it if you want to do tik Tok recording slow motion videos if you don't have an iPhone😏

#1 go to for my all-purpose photo/video capture needs --- just a plain, dandy, clean, comprehensive "one that works" • worth exploring if you're dissatisfied with the capabilities of other such apps

Very good apps but torch option in flash icon not available many time i facing screen orientation problem icon size is big aspect to screen size same time icon hide background information like storage, time etc. upgrade your GUI, many submenu option I can't quick select option

absolutely Amazing creator, giving us this for free with no ads. Is what I said before he added ads. Ah well. Still a quality app.

I have no camera skills or knowledge and this app makes it so easy for me to record good quality video and take good thumbnails.

Awesome camera app! Developer has a deep understanding of photography and software development. Many thanks.

"Failed to start camera preview" keeps coming up with viewfinder blacked out even after updating and since the update - there is no OIS. Galaxy S7. 1440p with hdr, digital stabilisation and 60fps would be nice to have

Good but the problem is there is no mirror for front video camera , for capture got but for video not available 😪😪😪😪

I can't get along with so many settings. They should've been more organised. The advanced settings should be hidden under a certain menu.

In last version app loads but blue camera button on screen apears with delay!!!!!!!!!!!

Awesome camera app, what I love the most is that it let me disable noise cancellation for my images. It also lets you shoot in .dng which is great.

Camera2 API mode used to work well, latest update destroyed that, now crashed with serious camera error messages. Crashes still persist after reboot, often when change a setting then exiting the settings.

Great. However there is no support for wide angle and telephoto cameras yet. Hope that comes soon.

One of the best camera app i have ever seen.!! Such a good thing !! Good response time..!! Can be used as default camera!! Best ever experience!! 💕

just what i needed,easy to use..unlike my phones settings which are confusing and slow to set up..welldone!

This is awesome app.. Manually control but one think i dont like about this app is, when i open this app my phone brightness level come to highest level.. This drain battery life. Could you solve this?

Great App Sometimes crashes when taking a picture with HDR mode Not able to control the shutter speed when taking videos with 60 or higher framerates I wish the UI was a little bit organized and easy Adding timelapse feature will be useful

Please improve the white balance and colors in processing Especially in HDR mode shows face so much red And the noise Reducer when it's on "high quality" it destroys so much deatils please fix it

External mic in video is not working on my realme 2 pro mobile with lapel mic. I am using the 3.5mm jack splitter as well but barely could hear the things i talk.what is the issue and how to solve this please?

Every time I'm trying to record a video with an external mic, I get an error after I record saying that the video file has been corrupted. That's the only reason I installed this app.

No wards to say.. just awesome. I love this application because of it's manual video and photo mode...

Great app for video recording...but there is no option for Pause video recording...

This app is awesome! It really helped improve my camera quality for recording on the Xbox 360! You have helped me and my channel very much

When i playback a video a few seconds later the image freezes and I can only hear the sound.

Very helpfull...Now my phone could maximize it's hardwares capabilities to record in 4k resolution(and the quality quite good too) with the help from this app.

I'd like to understand why after some time using it the quality of the pictures seem to decrease. It's so weird.

Good but lacking ability browse to sd card for saving. Just offers let you type a path which is not something most can do. Why not option save to sd card?

I like this app because you are not bombarded withs pop ups, it's easy to use and takes edits well.

Absolutely the best camera app to replace all others! It has every feature ever and supreme compatibility, dont even think twice just dl!

I just love it! Congratulations! All the controls you need. I love that you can lock the exposure on video!

Unable to connect external mic on my realme X. Very bad experiance. Please suggest me any trick to use

Apsolutely vital if you use an android cameraphone. Superior to other assp plus it is open source. 5+

Great app only one issue. When i set it to record 24 fps it work until i change the shutter speed. It then changes to 30 fps

Hello, is there any way or future possibility to shoot log footage? Something like openLog standard or so would be good to have. Thanks and please keep up the good work.

There must be On /Off option for clicking pics without any sound and full screen option also be there for user's convenience.

No Continues flash while recording video (tourch), 120 fps is maximum , If sove these two issue i will give 5 star

When recording video, i pause my video and removed mic and put it back and started record but the app crash and my video was not saved please fix this problem.

This app is great, but its would be the greatest if the shutter sound control exist

Video is not work rightly at low light or night, why ? I can't even increase brightness / iso at low light.But its works really good at daytime.

I love Open Camera,but ui interface to old school in 2019..hope you all update this app interface like others camera apps..and please support night mode in this app..

Everything is great, but Pause button is missing during Recording a video.

This used to be really good before the update my pictures are either too dark or too bright I can't find the right

Design can be improved, however this is a great piece of free open source software :)

A good app, but it doesn't support wide angle lens! Please fix this.

If you looking for a great camera app look no further. Try this out. Keep up the good work developers 👍

This is the best ever camera software for android users and thanks for made it it's really help the youtubers who are depends on mobile camera . Thank you

My problem in this app is sometimes there's audio sometimes no.. it's good but hope you can fix it.

Video is legging with the audio, i mean lipsing doesnt match with the video clips when ever i use external mic. So can Anyone tell me how to fix that?

Any idea how to prevent the flowering / blossoming of the lights /LED objects when their pic is captured. My phone camera is 13MP (oneplus2)
