I don't think Android has direct support for this, though it could be done by joining the separate video parts afterwards (e.g., using ffmpeg library)... For now though, a workaround is to combine the resultant videos yourself.

thanks for the quick response and the work you've put into the app. thought I'd ask about the switching of cameras, though I had a feeling it wasn't going to be possible. however it would be really nice if you could add a way to pause the video recording.

Version 1.20 is now released!

Main new feature is a new popup menu (the "dot" icon) that allows quick access to flash, focus, ISO, white balance, scene mode, color effect, camera resolution, timer.

So this means you can switch to any flash or focus mode in two clicks rather than having to cycle through. Also there's the benefit of not having to inadvertently turn on the torch when cycling flash, or having to go past "continuous video" focus, which is slow to change to. (A theoretical downside is that cycling to the next flash or focus now requires two clicks instead of one, but overall I think it's a lot better.)

Changing ISO, white balance, scene mode etc can now also be done quickly in two clicks.

Also a couple of bug fixes, and a new icon. It's quite a different style, and I know some people won't like the change But I wanted to accept an icon made specifically for Open Camera; I find it more interesting than the old icon; and it works better on both dark and light backgrounds. The real test will be if this affects downloads, for better or worse Thanks to Cosmin Saveanu who created the icon for me; you can read about it at http://aboutfoto.wordpress.com/2014/...r-open-camera/ .
