Hiding soft buttons on the camera? Or on the system in general.

I have been able to hide the soft buttons using Xposed plus some modules.

Surprised only 2 people mentioned it, but yeah i always go with timeshift if i wanna capture someting moving. Didn't realize it only does timeshift at 2mp tho..... im guessing its possible if rooted to edit it so it uses 8mp instead, i'll have t look later


Heres a few timeshift pics of some lightening a few weeks back, also i just noticed that altho you only get to choose 1 pic from timeshift it actually saves them all, but never saw the others until i connected to pc, might be handy to know if you use it for pics of your kids or pets

My guess is that the only way it can take the pics so fast (61 pics in around two seconds!) is BECAUSE the output is 2mpx. If the output images were any higher then it couldn't capture as many pics within the same time frame .

Hmmmm yeah i suppose, crap, didnt really think about that, could try 30 at 4mp but not sure if that would be enough pics to eliminate blurring. No chance if its a 2 second burst.... but maybe if it 1 second. Oh well, i suppose its still good considering it is only a camera on a phone lol.

On everything. G3 just did it and when you needed them you could just swipe down and they would appear. There was even an option to be able to choose which apps would hide the buttons also. It was like an xposed mod.

Sounds like the "Force immersive mode" xposed module. You can choose which applications you want to apply it to. I use it for the default browser and it's brilliant.
Very nice work from LG to have implemented that in their stock ROM.

Sony have implemented it (kinda) in the album application, but no others as far as I can see. I'd say if you want this functionality, you'll have to root.

It's rare they ever capture people let alone moving kids. Always still life.

My other pet gripe is they only take shots in auto. if a picture comes out bad, rarely is it ever mentioned that it can be corrected and this leaves people with the wrong impression. So you come here and say such and such cannot be done with so and so device and next thing you know somebody shows you how to do it.
