This is a thread to discuss my camera app.

It's a modified Android camera/gallery/editor with many features for Android 4.0+ (an older version also runs on 2.3).

Now with full 4K video recording on the Nexus 5 (3840x2160) , see this post:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=57672891&postcount=2405

It's available on the play store for about US$2.

I really want it to work on as many different devices as possible so let me know how you get on with it.
The app is here:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.marginz.snap

See the website for tips and FAQs:

http://www.marginz.co.nz/snap

Attached to this post will be the latest release and/or beta test, if you have purchased the app you can install this to test.

If you haven't purchased the app you can still install this but it will only work if you do not have a network connection on your device (wifi or mobile data).

If you have bought the app but want some extra features you can get the beta from the play store here:

https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.marginz.snap

You can opt out of the beta at any time by visiting this link again.

There's already a thread on reddit about the camera

http://www.reddit.com/r/Android/comments/153r0o/jelly_bean_camera_and_gallery_ported_to_all/

from first impressions, people are blasting the price, they think this is just picking up google's work and releasing it as a paid app :S they don't realize there's work involved to port it to 2.3+.

Dzo, I really suggest an ad supported or a trial version. That way, they'll have the chance to try it before blasting it :S

Why aren't all apps as fast and cool looking like this? The only thing I'm missing so far versus Aurora's standard camera is the sharpness option. I usually set that to 0 or 1, because the default added too much noise.

The icon could use some work though. It's a bit... empty... and flat compared to other colorful, 3D-looking icons. Maybe I should clarify this, I mean the icon in the apk you sent per mail. The one that's just a white octagon ;)

Btw, when I take a photo, the screen is tinted green. The photo is all right. Is that intended?

Just bought this :)
First impressions: looks very good and really fast to shoot and modify settings. Really great camera app!

One question: I don't get that how I shoot time lapse. I press it to on, select settings and press done, but where is option to start to shoot it? I think that it's somewhere, but I do something wrong :D

First app I have ever bought. Bought it just to support dzo for his great job what he did for mine phone (U8800). I tried it and must say that it is really fast and great to use (sometimes little laggy on U8800 but what should we expect on 1ghz single core :D ) Found two bugs though. 1. app cant play videos taken from app itself (maybe just bug on U8800 idk) 2. when i watch any video in it, the blue top line with buttons like share and back never fades out (while looking at photos i just tap on screen and top overlay (idk if its called like this, english isnt my native language) fades out but in video it just pauses the vid.
Keep up good work :good:

edit: video recording doesnt work in 720p (and because of this i could not open those videos) but is working 480p

I don't see option for photosphere, so it's not at least in this current version.

I read some of the earlier posts and links and someone said that photosphere is proprietary. So no on it.

In fact, it's not available, because it's proprietary google technology that Dzo couldn't port if the app was to be a paid one. At least that's how I understand it...

Sharpness is at the top on the controller. It's supposed to be a pencil sharpener!

Sharpness, contrast and saturation don't keep their settings after a restart, perhaps they should.

Yes, the launcher icon needs some work. I'll get into it. The green tint isn't supposed to be there. Just a feature of Aurora.

Thanks for the hint, now I'm happy :)
The whole workflow for snapping a picture and checking if it's come out alright is so much better with the integrated gallery.

@zazza8: Time lapse is not for photos, but for videos. Activate time lapse and start shooting a video, it works.

    This is a thread to discuss my camera app.

    It's a modified Android camera/gallery/editor with many features for Android 4.0+ (an older version also runs on 2.3).

    Now with full 4K video recording on the Nexus 5 (3840x2160) , see this post:

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=57672891&postcount=2405

    It's available on the play store for about US$2.

    I really want it to work on as many different devices as possible so let me know how you get on with it.
    The app is here:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.marginz.snap

    See the website for tips and FAQs:

    http://www.marginz.co.nz/snap

    Attached to this post will be the latest release and/or beta test, if you have purchased the app you can install this to test.

    If you haven't purchased the app you can still install this but it will only work if you do not have a network connection on your device (wifi or mobile data).

    If you have bought the app but want some extra features you can get the beta from the play store here:

    https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.marginz.snap

    You can opt out of the beta at any time by visiting this link again.

    Planet earth calling @dzo, over...

    Apologies for not reading this thread recently, I've been really busy improving the app. (v8.0.0 in this thread and on the play store)
    I've spent the last month completely rewriting the HDR code and I think it's much better now.
    There's not a single line of code left from the old HDR, and it now uses Halide (http://halide-lang.org/).
    I've also updated the Low Light processing (Camera2 only) to align and merge up to 32 frames. You can use it in good lighting conditions for noise removal too. 32 frames will be slow to process so 8 or 16 is more sensible most of the time.
    The new code runs great on a Nexus 5 but is noticeably slower on a 5x, I'll look into this but it's probably a hardware limitation.
    There may well be bugs in this new release, it's still a bit experimental.
    Thanks.

    4K video on Nexus 5

    I've just published a new beta with one exciting early Xmas present for Nexus 5 owners.
    The app now supports 4K video, yes you can record full 3840x2160 UHD video (only on Nexus 5).
    I've put a very brief demo video on youtube.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjpFXIDaGxI
    It's still experimental but it does work, I'm pretty sure no other app lets you do this.
    To try it, switch on the camera2 API and opengles 2.0 settings (in the "Other" menu) and two new entries will appear for video quality, 4K and 3.5K.
    4K is 3840x2160 and 3.5K is 3264x1836.
    It runs at about 28fps at 4K and 30fps at 3.5K, the default bitrate is 48MBps but you can change this if you want.
    The sensor on the Nexus 5 is 3264x2448 so it uses the GPU to crop and interpolate to the full 4K size.
    Pushing all those pixels around is very taxing on the hardware so don't expect the battery to last long while you are filming!
    I've only just got this to work and it is experimental, it may crash sometimes so please don't rely on it for recording important events.
    I don't actually have a 4K TV so I haven't seen what the output really looks like at full resolution, let me know.
    Thanks and Merry Xmas.

    Is the camera dev given up with it ??
    Absolutely not, I've been away for a couple of weeks but will release a new beta soon.
    8
    I've just put a new beta release on the play store and in the first post here. The biggest change is that there's now an optional mode dial that appears bottom right on the screen. This lets you have multiple configurations and easily switch to raw and manual as well as some useful scene modes. This is what the modes do:

    P1,P2 and P3 are fully programmable and keep their settings when you close the app. P1 should be your existing settings (although a few now apply to every mode and will be reset to their defaults).
    RAW, M and HDR are also individually programmable but will always enable the selected mode.
    A (Auto) uses the default settings and you can change them but they will be reset when you switch mode or exit the app with the back button (but not if you switch briefly to a different app with the home or recent apps buttons).
    The scene modes are the same as A but enable the selected scene mode.

    The dial is usable when small but you can also tap on the centre to make it larger. Tap again to make it small. Long press to bring up an arc menu bottom right.

    This is still a bit experimental and you can disable it if you don't like it.
    Recent Samsung phones don't have any scene modes, they will still appear on the dial but only the focus mode will change.
    Let me know if you have any problems.

    Thanks and Happy Xmas.
