    Leaving exposure on center weighted is a huge problem. Changing that would be a huge help. Still, if your looking for a simpler app there is Colour Os ( 50mp shots and other cool features) and Google camera(amazing photo spheres and panoramas)

    P.S. always forget to quote

    Sorry frame average. Spot metering will make it worse. Make sure to try another app or two and see what you really like

    Will happen before I die and yes that bug is fixed on COS 12 (atleast with cameranext) I dont even shoot raw anymore the JPEG quality is good enough to edit.

    Is there much new? I am waiting for API 2!

    Also the CameraNext Mod is very good for stuff like Long exposure.

    I have some sort of camera lag. when I take a picture, sometimes the picture doesn't get taken instantanteously. What I mean by that is that I touch picture taking icon but the picture gets taken only moments after, with as result that I end up with a picture for example people that are already out of pose, or the wall because I already moved with my camera. It's really really annoying because I most of the times I take a picture it must go fast, in a result that evrytime this happens my picture is ruined. It does'nt only apply for the camera app but also for fb , instagram or snapshat. it's not all the time like this but I would like that it would never lag. Someone know how I can fix this?

    thanks in advance

    Usually this problem is very different of different devices (wierd). The solution is a different camera app. I included a long list of the diffrent apps strengths and weakness. The simplest isgoogle now, Color OS has become the most popular. Everyone swears by their choice. I use camera next. Take a read and make a choice.

    Note: Only google camera is available via the playstore making it your safest quickest bet.
