    I took this today (Alderney, UK)

    I have both the stock camera app and Camera-FV5.

    The latter works better on the S6 because the S6 stock app does not deliver jpeg "quality" above "75%", whereas FV5 has a "100%" setting which is visibly better. (Even 100% is nowhere near 100% jpeg i.e. no compression; a "100%" S6 file of 12MB would be about 35MB in lossless jpeg (or raw but the S6 never did raw AFAIK).

    Anyway; it's obvious the above colours are way over the top. It looks like a quick and dirty photoshop job.

    Is there any config in the stock app? I can't find it.

    In FV5 I can reduce the saturation. But FV5 takes a few secs to take a pic whereas the stock app is instant and it supports launching from a double press of the button.

    Both apps support RAW, but the stock app does not generate the raw files at all, while FV5 generates DNGs of zero file size!

    Can anyone with an S7 take a RAW pic and report whether any real image is generated?
