Description
New generation camera application builded with a proper UI/UX and updated with some non-common features has Live-preview filters, live-photos and face recognition used to take captures.

Technical description
CameraX is a camera application builded over Camera 2 API. The application makes uses of all the features provided by the API based on the hardware of the device running it. It also manages all the preview system using OpenGL instead of the native way. Being able to implement real time filters(on next release ), selfie indicator and on-preview features. It also works on some modes with Scene Detection and Face Detection using the tools provided by Machine learning Firebase tool.

Hardware limitations
Is possible that your device will not support the application. if your device is not supported it means that the Camera 2 API is not fully supported by your manufacturer. Brands like Xiaomi, Huawei and Samsung who develop their own Firmware still using the old API 1 and works over it. On this case, I can't help providing a manual apk. The API itself requires a full implementation over it.

Features
- HD Camera: Up to 4K support for video and photo if your device supports it.
- Live Photos: See your pictures come to life on Google Photos.
- Photobooth: Take selfies with your friends only smiling to the camera.
- Manual Mode: Modify your ISO, time exposure, compensation and white balance for the best pictures.
- Record in Slow-motion in supported devices.
- Create amazing Time-lapses.
- Focus: Auto & Manual.
- Burst Mode: Capture infinite pictures with out burst mode.
- Support for RAW/DNG.
- Record in multiple FPS: Choose between 30 or 60FPS.
- Gesture Management: Use your volume keys to take pictures or control the zoom .
- Frontal Mirror: Add a mirrored effect to your frontal camera pictures.
- Grid: Take the best pictures with our Grid options.

Download APK:
play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.camerax.camera

Feel free to leave any feedback, we are looking forward for updates and improvements on the application. Also, being a hardware related app makes it hard to test without a huge quantity of devices.

Thank you so much in advance!

Hello @polomalkin

If your device is not supported it means that the Camera 2 API is not fully supported by your manufacturer. Brands like Xiaomi, Huawei and Samsung who develop their own Firmware still using the old API 1 and works over it. Even providing you an APK the application will not work properly. Thank you so much anyway! Will write this down on the description aswell

Hello @kos25k ! Yes, the idea is to compete with the actual Google Camera(the open one, not the one integrated on PIXEL devices). In the end right now apart of some really specific features. For now we want to close an stable version with all the features highlighted and then focus on more "Image processing" features, such as develop our own HDR/Nightshot etc.

Anyway, for now we are using the same API than google, and the actual application highlight a lot of the App store top applications. It lack the Manufacturer custom implementation of each in-device camera. But in the end is the cost of build an application available for tons of devices.
Any feedback or desired feature is totally welcome! Thank you so much!

More than do an HDR(HDR+), it's to do one that is fast enought to don't bother the user. You can easily create a HDR, Nightshot, or high processing quality images using OpenCV(FastCV on Android case), but these libraries takes seconds(10+) to process this images. Google does it using their own algorith with a huge native processing image team behind, that's why they don't need 2-3 cameras and they can do a Bokeh, HDR, nightshot and everything using a single 1, because their knowledge on that matter is amazing. Other manufacturers such as Samsung, Hauwei etc use their own system or third party libraries(from companies has Morpho).

So, in summary, yes, it's possible to do an hdr+, and we are working on it. But we want to launch something that will process under 3-4 seconds at least to give a good user experience.
Thank you so much for your feedback kos25k!

Hello Mijorus,

first, thank you so much for the feedback and the request. I really though this thread was already dead.
- We are working on a folder selection feature already, it should come next month.
- Same goes with payments. We want to include the possibility for single payment to remove the ads. However, we want to finish cleaning the bugs and gathering all the feedback we are receiving recently before include the payments.
- What did you didnt like from the icons? They are too simple? We try to follow a Google Material looking with the icons, but maybe make something more fancy would be great. Any advice or idea would be great. We will take the feedback and let it know to our designer.

Thank you so much for the feedback, and feel free to send us more requests here or to [email protected]

PD: Regarding the .mp4 files you mean they are generated when you take photos with Live photos enabled. But they should be automatically deleted after add the metadata to the headers of the JPG images. We will give a look to check if these videos are not being properly deleted.

Hi,
icons are a bit dated IMO, however that is not at all a priority, especially if you want to keep that look and feel.

Motion photos are disabled, but I see some .mp4 empty files (0 bytes) in the DCIM folder, they are scanned by my gallery app and spam the photo list with empty white files
