Focal (Beta)

Focal (Beta)


Focal is a fully featured camera app looking to provide the most features on the most phones possible, including device-specific features on some devices.
This app is the official release from the ex-CyanogenMod app.

*** THIS IS BETA: It has high chances of NOT WORKING PROPERLY - Instead of rating 1-star because something doesn't work, just WAIT FOR AN UPDATE - This is FREE! If it doesn't work on your device then REPORT THE BUG, then WAIT AND SEE -- If you don't want to test it, don't install it. ***

If you want to support the development, buy the Donate app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=fr.xplod.focal.donate

It features:
- A photo and video mode, supporting many features (burst mode, timer mode, scene mode, shutter speed on Sony devices, ...)
- A panorama mode, currently semi-broken
- A PicSphere mode, open-source replacement of Google's PhotoSphere, to do 360° sphere shots
- A review drawer, by sliding from the top of the screen (in portrait). It shows your latest pictures.

In photo mode, you also have access to a few tools, such as automatic picture enhancement (auto-awesome), or a rule of thirds overlay. On some devices, settings such as Color adjustment, HDR and a manual light measure point are also available. Double tapping the screen will put your in quick shot mode, where tapping the screen anywhere will take a picture.

In video mode, high-framerate video is also possible.

Tips :
- You can slide a widget's left handle to the right to close it
- You can swipe twice to temporarily hide open widgets, and swipe back to recover them
- You can pin widgets on your main screen
- You can scroll the sidebar

Notes :
- This app targets mostly phones, but should mostly work on tablets.

- It is fully open source (GPL), and the sources can be downloaded at https://github.com/xplodwild/android_packages_apps_Focal

- It is a BETA, which means you might encounter bugs and crashes. I'm mostly working on newer devices (Galaxy S3 and +), so older devices might encounter more issues than recent ones.

- I do this in my free time, and this is a free software. Instead of rating 1 star because there is a bug, you should do a constructive comment, or raise the issue to me on twitter, @xplodwild. Or even better, fork the project and fix the problem :)

- Even if some parts of the app sucks for now, they'll improve over time.

Recent changes:
1.0-4aeccf19:
- (Finally) fixed regressions on Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013) and a few other devices.
- More fixes to come soon

When it worked When it worked for my phone it was amazing. I have a T-Mobile LG g3 851 eventually just having it would cause my phone to reboot over and over. That doesn't mean it isn't a great camera it simply didnt work on my phone. To be fair there was a warning from the developer in the description. When the update comes out I will be trying it again.

Compatibility Problems When I use this app on a Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo it works very well. I especially like how I can turn off sharpening (under Colour Adj. - slide the bar next to the staircase icon to zero) and with this it produces near RAW quality. I wish the app also allowed tuning JPEG compression ratio. But on my Galaxy Note 4 (SM-N910C with Exynos SoC), the sharpening is not adjustable. It looks like a GUI bug.

Extremely cool Very handy and fast access to the settings needed. Amazing work! Upd: at some point on cm12/android 5.0.2 Focal began to start INCREDIBLY SLOWLY. I mean, literally, it's a black screen for up to a couple of minutes. Also, panorama mode stopped working. Except for that it's still my camera of choice. A little painful on lollipop, though.

Очень прикольно Опонравилось и оставил. Пока не хватает удаления фото из области просмотра без внешней программы. Настройки один раз изменил не сохранились. Глючит режим перехода к внешнему просмотршику при фотографмровании тапом по экрану. Большое спасибо разработчикам. Оставляю. Особенно понрааилось скорость фотографирования нормальная. Режим фотографирования кликом по экрану.

Has tremendous potential! This app can replace my Xperia Z3's stock camera app because of its great interface. Features that can outdo the Z3 and would be great additions to the app would be: 1. Metering modes (spot, center, or average), 2. HDR processing, 3. Shutter speed adjustment, and 4. The ability to open the gallery automatically when clicking on a picture review.
