    In principal (FV-5) seems to work. I haven't tested any advanced features out, but when I ran the manual camera compatibility app, it said the S60 has all the manual compatibilities, so I bought FV-5 and installed it, was able to switch between JPG and PNG format, and store RAW files.

    I've only ever had a point and shoot camera, so I'm not familiar with all the DSLR settings FV-5 offers, but as time allows I will test them and update.

    I had a wakelock issue when I first installed it yesterday, but some combination of uninstalling, disabling the power button double-tap camera launch thing, spending about 5 minutes on the charger, and then reinstalling, has fixed the wakelock. 6.0.1 is a pain in the ass it seems with nonsensical wakelock issues.

    Been messing with it for a few days now, and so far, I'm honestly underwhelmed. I like the manual focus, and the ability to select different file types, but in spite of all the manual adjustments, I haven't been able to take photos as good as the stock camera app, with regards to color.

    Now, I understand that when manually adjusting stuff, your skill determines image quality, and I have no skill, but no matter what I tweak, the images look washed out in comparison to those taken of the same subject with the stock camera app. Definitely, leaving all the settings for FV-5 in "auto" yields a much worse imagine in comparison to the stock app.

    I might have to look around and see what else is out there.

    I just installed Open Camera, which I used on my old phone, and it's the same deal on this phone... images are washed out, compared to the stock app.

    I'll have to research this more later, but I suspect any aftermarket app is going to yield the same issue.

    Post up here if you have different results.

    Camera function is so much batter now, after the most recent update.

    I couldn't be happier with the improvement. The FV-5 image would have been completely washed out prior to the OS update. I didn't change anything with the app, just installed the update and it made a world of difference.
