I had similar issues with the standard camera app crashing for no reason.Hi everybody,
there is still the (built-in) camera-app-icon missing so I have to start the camera by double press on power button (also latest built from july). (No, even dozens of restarts didn't help).
Two issues unfortunately still annoying in camera app:
1. start up time is very long from double press on power button till actual camera app is ready (some spontaneous photos got never been shot )
2. if HDR is enabled before taking pictures the camera app sometimes crashes saying something like "media server died, could not connect" or "could not connect to media server" something like this. If I already have camera app started then go to standby and some times after I want to take a picture the app crashes more frequently so that I have to "force stop" the app and open it again. But this behavior is also experienced without HDR enabled.
Concerning the "Location" functionality: I still wonder if this is a (wanted) feature to not beeing able anymore to select what kind of location type you want. In the past LOSs (I think 16.x, 15.x, ...) you could chose between "device only" and 2 other methods. Now since there is only "on/off" my navigation app (osmand~) takes a very long time to determine the current position (it downloads some map material !?).
Any ideas on that?
ps: will the OTA updater work again for next built ?
Since then I installed "Open camera" from the play store as my default camera app and it has been working fine (it also has a lot more options).
NB: make sure you enable opencamera as the default camera app, otherwise the stock camera app will still interfere.
