As users have already discussed in this thread, it's possible to make work some apps for PCs on smartphones.
Several days ago Microsoft released a big Camera app update with new useful features (version 2017.1223.10.0). Seems, that it won't be officialy available for smartphones, but nevertheless it's possible to install it. Just complete several steps:

1) Uninstall a stock Camera app with help of Interop Tools.
2) Download modified AppxBundle from here.
3) Install downloaded AppxBundle.

The app works only on Windows 10 Mobile 1703 or higher (build 15063 or 15254).

If you want to restore the stock version, just delete this one and install stock Camera from the Microsoft Store.

I do not take any responsibility for the consequences of your actions. Do everything at your own risk.


Seems, that new app is working faster than the stock one. But there're some bugs as well - for example, physical camera button doesn't work on some devices, HDR doesn't work on some devices and etc. It depends on your phone model. You can find more info on it below, just read the discussion.

Update 6.02.18: modification is now based on the newer app version (2018.130.10.0). Scaling files and language packs for Be, Cs, De, Es, Fr, Lv, Pl, Ru, Uk, Uz are now included.
Update 14.02.18: modification is now based on the newer app version (2018.209.10.0).
Update 01.03.18: modification is now based on the newer app version (2018.226.10.0).
Update 04.04.18: modification is now based on the newer app version (2018.309.60.0).
Update 03.07.18: modification is now based on the newer app version (2018.426.70.0).

Yes, there're some.
Stock one works with physical button (as I have told, modified one doesn't), with live photos (this feature is cut from this new version) and switches between Camera and Photos apps faster. New version can also be buggy, you know.
But this new version is overally faster (startup is immediate even on Lumia 735), has more settings related to the photo/video quality and remembers the last used mode. It's possible, that more features coming in the future.

HDR works for me, i'm not a photo pro so, pardon me if i'm wrong... The flicker reduction is the video stabilizer?

I think the flicker is what you get from viewing refresh rates or eletrical frequency of your envionment. Set that to what the environment around you is and you should avoid more or eliminate video flickering during recording.

I installed this on my 950 XL and it works fairly well. I got a lot more heat more quickly when loading it and using, so for now I uninstalled...The living images missing is not a total loss, and it disables auto hdr or seems to on my 950 XL. I cannot toggle the flash after enabling HDR either. This occurs like this on the IDOL 4s and Elite X3 by default in the mobile app so not like I am not use to seeing it....

I do not do much video recording so for me there is not much use for the flicker reduction.

Worked very fine for me. Even I can change the photo/video size at my own will! That's neat.
