A Better Camera

What is A Better Camera

A Better Camera is a camera application that attempts to emulate a DSLR-like experience by giving you plenty of controls and options. It’s for Android 4.3 and up if you want all of the features and offers quite a few features. It’s currently free in the Google Play Store with in app purchases.

The app works essentially like every other camera app. You can point and shoot like normal and you can choose a variety of settings such as multi-shot, panorama, as well as ISO and white balance (on devices that support that). It also comes with HDR for both pictures and video. Most of these features are available for devices under Android 4.3 but things like the HDR video capture is only for Android 4.3 and up.

The interface is clean with frosted icons so the focus on the screen is always on whatever your camera is pointing at. There are various gestures and swipes you can do to gain access to settings or get them out of the way for clearer shots. The features all seem to work well on most devices although many people will be bottlenecked by the hardware on their devices.

A Better Camera review

It may very well be a better camera app.

PROS
  • A solid list of features that include white balance, ISO, HDR (image and video), Multishot, panorama, and night mode.
  • Clean UI that is easy to use.
  • Extra stuff like burst, expo-bracketing, and different kinds of focus are nice touches.
  • Free to use with in app purchases so you can try before you buy.
CONS
  • Not all these features will work on all devices or all versions of Android.
  • Bugs you to install editor software which a lot of people (including me) found annoying.
  • Bugs reported here and there.
Overall, it’s worth a shot if you’re looking for a new camera app. It’s free with in app purchases so you can try it before buying anything. It doesn’t bring all that much to the table but it is a simplified and solid option in comparison to a lot of other camera apps out there.
