Default New Google Camera Sucks

Hi everyone,
The title is pretty clear. And I want the old one back. I want to be able to take pictures during video. I want to be able to change white balance. I want to be able to change scene mode. The lens blur is absolute poo. It straight up sucks. I know the real time picture ratio isn't right on the old one, but it just looks better with the added space. Is there any way to get back my old, functional camera back? Thanks in advance for any answers.

How could you NOT know how to uninstall updates. Should give the new update a chance, I agree that the massive are at the bottom isn't ideal but once you've messed around with the settings etc I personally think its better. And I'm pretty sure you can take a PIC whilst recording by tapping on the screen, don't quote me on that though.

None of the massive area in the bottom is part of the photo anyway so how is it less than ideal? At least now we can see what the photo will look like before we take it. No more accidentally missing part of the shot cause the screen shows more picture than photo.


@ProVickers check out pro capture. This is my main camera.
