Recent changes:
Experimental optional support for Camera2 API (only available on some devices e.g. Nexus 5, 6). This enables new manual features for focus distance, ISO, exposure time. Note there are some issues with this (e.g., flash often gives poor results) hence it's experimental and off by default.

Focus Manual mode renamed to Focus Locked; switching to this mode no longer refocuses. Improved look of on-screen level bar. Added Chinese Simplified translation (thanks to Michael Lu).

Various bug fixes.

Its it's missing some important features that otherwise ok Sharpness saturation contrast these need to be available right outside on the GUI. ISO settings can be tucked away in the finer controls. Also saving settings groups as templates would be very nice. For some strange reason, review keeps being deleted! I've never seen that before.
