Default [Q] Google Camera vs Camera FV-5

Sorry for yet another camera app battle but so far, I haven't seen the two being compared against each other.

Since I found the Twisty Switch Xposed module, I've wanted to change the camera app into one of these two apps.

My MAIN uses for the camera are just to take pictures of documents [therefore I need the text to be seen clearly] and to take pictures of everyday things [in bright lighting]. I'm also looking to see which does better in taking pictures in yellow lighting [light isn't white bright, but it isn't dark either]. So, which better suits my needs.

Why don't you use both and see for yourself? Obviously FV-5 is going to give you more control.

I can't use FV-5 because whenever I change the ISO mode to lower value the images coming through the viewfinder get very poor framerates to become unusable. It's not a problem of the app or a specific device, both my Moto X have it regardless of apps used, it's just something to do with the Moto X camera.
