Default FXCamera or Camera ZOOM FX ???

I've been using FXCamera for a few weeks now it takes great pictures on my phone, with cool effects like fisheye and the warholizer.

FxCamera


Just noticed that androidslide has released a version of their Camera ZOOM FX application which has 40 photo FX, geotagging and obviously zoom which I can't do at the moment in FXCamera.

Camera ZOOM FX


Just wondering if anyone had a chance to look at either of these apps and which they think is best, because I've been hoping for some new effects for a while and the androidslide app sounds worth a look.

I think you have answered your own question ...

Camera ZOOM FX has 40 effects, way more than FXCamera. I've been using the new update for a couple of days and would say the filmreel and color effects are amazing! Fisheye works well too.

As for all the other features, Camera ZOOM FX has been around for a long while now and it probably has more features than any other camera app, so you can't really go wrong.

Bottom line is you get what you pay for.

Thanks Lee. Been playing with Camera ZOOM FX for a couple of days - definitely the one to go for!

A really good selection of photo FX - they are all pretty quick and the quality seems better than on FXCamera which has some kind of distortion pattern on most pictures.

Its a shame Camera ZOOM FX doesn't have the manual focus button though, but maybe they'll add it, but it does have loads of features like zoom (obviously), geotagging, auto-save, so its a pretty amazing app overall!

FXCamera is still good for a free app, so I'd recommend that if you just want basic effects.

As a long term Camera ZOOM user, I would definitely recommend this app especially now it has 40 photo FX and tonnes of other useful features like Facebook and Twitter upload.

FXCamera is good too but for $2 you get a lot more than just the 5 or 6 FX you get for free with FXCamera.

I have Droid Eris, and the only thing I can find in the Marketplace for Camera ZOOM is all of the skins and extras. Can't find the app anywhere. Even searched for Androidslide.

Any ideas how to get an app if you can't find it in the Marketplace?

And I had tried FXCamera, it seemed OK. But it was limited to very low resolution. Does Camera ZOOM FX have the same limitation on resolution?

THANKS!

Camera ZOOM FX takes better quality photos on my Hero, and I've tried both plus many more.

Hi,

I bought the Camera Zoom FX app today. Just got the phone this weekend but this app seemed pretty highly regarded. I took a few pics and even with the stock camera just seems like i am getting a lot of interferance and quailty is not that good.

While using it just use normal mode i assume for taking regular pics? Did you change any menu settings?

Also did i read someplace i have to change some settings if i am email or texting this pics since it downsizes/downgrades the resolution, what is your preferred way to get them off the phone?

Thanks

We are the developers of Camera ZOOM FX and are happy to answer any questions you have on the app or respond to any new feature requests.

Regarding picture size, this is configurable in the settings menu - it will let you specify up to the maximum resolution available for your phone model, e.g. 2048 x 1536 (G1) or 2592 x 1936 (Droid).

Pictures are only reduced in resolution if you add any special effects or overlays. E-mailed pictures will maintain their resolution.

There is in additional option within the app to perform a 1-click upload to any social networking site (Facebook, Flickr, Twitter) - these pictures have to be slightly reduced in size for performance reasons but display very well on the web.

Geotagging is also available from the settings menu. It is available on all pictures except those using effects or overlays. We will add geotagging for all types of pictures in the near future.

Camera ZOOM FX for Droid should be available in the next 3 days.

Go to your gallery and long hold on a picture, when the menu comes up tap details, there are lan/lon cooridinates. It uses the a-gps and the gpsr when it's on.

I love my droid but I have to say I am shocked at how bad the camera is. I came from an iphone, only 3 megapixels, no flash and yet it took fabulous photos. Just fabulous. The Droid's camera - it is awful. Now - I've never used it outside. All the shots have been indoors in various lights. But I am shocked at how "off" the color is, how off the depth of field is, how off the sharpness of focus is - it is really a terrible camera - I suppose one might say they just chose terrible optics. It must surely be about optics.

Do you guys think these optics problems will be addressed with "updates?" I don't really see how they can be. They "fixed" the autofocus so now that "works." But it doesn't really. There is no crispness. I find it fascinating that the iphone could take indoor photos so well with no flash. Well that's about shutter speed auto adjustment. Somehow the Droid's camera doesn't seem to have that - perhaps because it does have a flash. I see numerous apps to download. I did download picsay pro but that's about doing something more with a photo you've taken. I want an app that is about actually taking a great photo indoors. And I am not talking about "in a bar or a really dark room." I'm talking about in my front room with numerous lights on but certainly not "daylight" conditions. Help? I love my Droid - sure would like to take photos on the fly and email and mms them.

Downloaded Camera ZOOM FX. It is excellent app. Really allows user to customize the camera settings for the shot, the zoom is quite good, offers image stabilization - it is a great app and very inexpensive for what you get.

FWIW, Camera Zoom FX won my heart and $$ when I saw "stable shot+ meter", grid, and white balance in the descriptive list of features. The bonus = all the additional stuff for AFTER the shot is taken as well.

Hi,

I'm using Camera Zoom FX too, Great app, just 2 questions though.
I'm using the Samsung Galaxy, but there are two things I can't seem to work out how to do..
1) Disable shutter sound - I unchecked it, but it still plays the sound. It's not like I'm taking upskirt pics, but that shutter sound is pretty loud and quite annoying.
2) Is there a way to toggle the flash/red eye reduction?

Any help will be much appreciated, THANKS!

Hi, two questions for Camera Zoom FX:

1) Does anyone have it working on a Nexus One? I have not, and I can't get to any kind of settings screen -- is there one (or is this related to it not working on the N1 yet)?

2) Is there a way to apply the effects to photos already taken?

Thanks,
V

Not sure on the Nexus question - maybe you could ask the dev ... I know it supports Droid now for example so they are kind of similar.

I haven't found a way to apply effects on existing pics but maybe there is a way to do it - I'll keep looking ...

Well, I finally found Camera Zoom FX for my Eris and have been comparing against the FXCamera app. For taking quick processed photos, I'm not as impressed as I thought I'd be. It appears to still downsample the image when you use any kind of effect, so that isn't an advantage over the small images that FXCamera produces.

It looks like Camera Zoom FX might be better for taking normal photos than the built-in app, not sure. But the most useful effect I would usually use is called 'Toy Camera' in FXCamera. This makes it look like an old toy or lomo camera, and is kind of nice for otherwise boring shots. I haven't found a way to really duplicate this effect in Camera Zoom FX. It has a cross-process effect, but it makes the shots way too blue overall. And I can't see a way to apply a vignette at the same time. So I'll usually prefer FXCamera for 'effected' shots.

However, I've briefly played with an app called PicSay. It looks REALLY nice and powerful for adding effects after the shot. May use the built-in app or Camera Zoom FX in normal mode, then use PicSay to do effects.

All the apps I have seen that perform post fx on photos downsample - someone talked about this on another thread, including PicSay, etc.

I like the choice of effects on Camera ZOOM - FXCamera only has 4 or 5 main ones, whereas Camera ZOOM has got loads more and they keep adding new ones.

I have also been using Camera ZOOM's sound activation feature recently - its really good when you are taking group shots etc - someone just needs to clap, then it takes a picture!!!

Okay, you guys sold me on trying out Camera ZOOM FX. Just finished downloading. I don't think they make tripods for phones... I'd suggest propping it up in one of those little bitty chair thingies that are made to set phones in. Off to play with my new program - give you guys and update later.

What is the difference between this app and PicSay Pro? It looks like they basically do the same thing, the only difference being when you actually apply the effects. Does ZoomFX actually enhance the quality of the picture over the normal camera?

I like Camera Zoom FX BUT it refuses to play nice with another camera app I came across called Slide Camera Zoom. If I try installed them together, Camera Zoom FX actually uninstalls Slide Camera Zoom so I can't use them both. What a bummer. I've never seen software do that. Not only will Camera Zoom Fx uninstall Slide Camera, but it will replace it's icon with Camera Zoom FX's icon. Verrrrry strange. I'm going to cc the dev on this one. Maybe they can figure out why this is happening. I even happens when I put the two icons on different pages.

Think I will install Camera ZOOM FX and give it a try.

Heck, for $4.36 (US), cant go wrong given the features it has.

My only question is this:

Is the ZOOM really a ZOOM? Or is it simply a crop of the original image?

I have been unable to determine how the zoom works in any app, so I was hoping the camera ZOOM FX dev would shed some light on this for me.

EDIT: so, just purchased Camera ZOOm FX. WOW! Talk about a LOT of options!

Yes I tried that too - seems to do some of the camera zoom fx stuff, with scenes, etc. but I find the camera zoom addon packs work better.

also found the interface very tricky to get the hang of. once you get used to a ui, its hard to change i guess, and camera zoom's works very well for me.

I can't find any camera app that supports 5MP on my Acer Liquid. I find it hard to believe apps have to specifically detect a phone in order to have this feature. There are more and more Android phones coming onto the market over time and it'd be a lot easier to just allow setting of 3, 5, 8, or 10 MP and just have the app give an error msg if it doesn't actually support it than having the selection missing. Right now Camera Zoom FX just has small, medium, large (3 MP), which is way too simplistic.

Thumbs up camera zoom fx

Downloaded Camera Zoom Fx last week - it's a terrific little app. Makes the Droid camera usable. Pix are sharp, color is great and I'm loving it. My only quibble is how is saves the pix - I can't quite figure out where or how to keep them somewhere where they will be easier to find since when you put them in the default gallery they are stored in the past pix instead of most recent so you have to scroll through them all to view the most recent? Maybe user error . All in all a fantastic buy, well done chaps. Great software.

got to agree with mark. zoom fx has long been my camera of choice for android.

more options to shake a stick at and very fast to use.

my pics are in camerazoom folder but i think it can be changed. mail the devs though - they have always responded when i have mailed them.

imo camerazoom is by far the more polished of the camera apps.

loving the ui and unique features like sound activation, 1-click facebook / twitter upload and a ton of free skinpacks to download - def now my camera app of choice.

now that i have played with this app for a while, i would strongly recommend to others

discovered this app for evo - works great for enabling volume buttons to control zoom

would like a few more effects - but the other features more than make up for it

Liking the new interface for this - gives much more info onscreen before taking pictures. One question though - does anyone know if there is a panaromic option for this as I haven't found one yet - maybe I missed it?

So far i'm really enjoying Camera Zoom...however, i have a question out there for anyone who would be so kind to answer it. Is there any way to edit a picture i have already saved into my gallery with the same effects as what can be applied in the preview screen? if not, is there any hope of ever making that an option? because i love the effects, i just want to be able to go back later and edit the photos i've already taken. sometimes i just don't have time to edit them on the spot.
