Open Camera android app
« on: 18 May, 2020, 04:03:16 pm »
I'm trying Open Camera which is an open source camera app off google play...  I've been getting increasing frustrated with a poor shutter lag on my stock (MOTO G5) app.  The class 10 UHS-I 64GB SD card is the fastest compatible with the phone AFAIA, so no further options here.   Fortunately Open Camera also opens with double press of power button, and allows shutter release with press of sound buttons.

Anyway, the shutter lag is way better.  :)  Not sure why this is, perhaps it just uses the phones buffer more efficiently.  Some nice touches & features. Dynamic range optimizer seems good.

Seems worth a shot if your phone camera app is below par somehow.
