Samsung Galaxy S7 owners – New Camera Options now available

Some good news if you own a Samsung Note 5 and onwards, including the new Samsung Galaxy S7.

Camera FV-5 Pro app just received an update yesterday which included the following changes –

– New: complete rewrite of the app for the all the recent Samsung Galaxy devices (Note 5, S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, S7, S7 edge). Smoother camera operation, more stable and faster RAW capture on all devices, manual focus and manual exposure up to 10 seconds on all devices.
– Fixed: limited picture resolution after some recent Samsung devices (S6/S7 series) got updated to Android 6. Thanks Samsung for ‘improving’ the experience for your users and making developer lives easier.

I haven’t had a chance to use it yet but I am interested to see what improvements it can bring over and above the default Samsung camera app.

  1. Stand out point there is 10s exposures are now possible with 3rd party camera apps. Previously not more than 0.5s which meant stock is always best. Hopefully this means better compliance with camera 2 API. Result is better 3rd party camera apps that actually work 🙂
