I've seen a lot of posts bemoaning the fact the S5 camera has no manual shutter speed settings, there's a solution....

CameraFV5 offers manual speeds and a lot more besides

Also has a companion Video app CinemaFV5

Both are available on Google Play.

Oh, and I have no connection with the developer, I'm just a happy user....

I can confirm this as a photographer. FV5 is wonderful. Now we just need a better CMOS in the phone....

Thumbs up Works fine for me...
I;m not sure what's happening with yours but it works fine for me, including the custom shutter speeds...just checked again with 5 and 20 second exposures...definitely working..

but manual shutter is not working, also on s4 and s3 it did not worked. no matter what exposure time you set it is always standard time, if i set 10 seconds image should be too bright but its almost black like in stock camera (dark room)

I agree with Yahyoh as well. Doesnt work on my G900F S5 as well. In fact, it if I select, say, 1 second shutter, the shutter appears to remain open for 1 second but there is no difference on picture quality.

Ya doesn't work. Manual speed doesn't really affect shutter times. The output is also limited to 2 MP. Would be nice to have a real option like in one plus one camera.
