Default Use Camera On Low Battery?

Is there any way to get around how on the phone when you go to camera when the battery is red. That you can still use the camera and takes photos. This is a real pain considering the phone is almost always showing red battery and I can never take photos. How can I get around this.

FXcamera runs while the battery is close to dying.

give it a try in normal mode if you aren't into filters and such.

if you take a pic and the battery dies while saving to the sd card you'll corrupt it.

Your anecdotal evidence has swayed me, I must be wrong!

one other thing to mention - back in the days of 1.5 - the camera wouldn't even start if the battery was under 15% thats how i found that it did work with (any) app camera.

Does FXCamera let you take a photo while on a call too? I miss being able to do that.

I think you should try Low Battery Camera App, specifically designed for this purpose, they also have something covered up if battery goes extremely low to make sure phone never goes in any unstable state.
