Camera FV-5 is a professional camera application for mobile devices, that puts DSLR-like manual controls in your fingertips. Tailored to enthusiast and professional photographers, with this camera application you can capture the best raw photographs so that you can post-process them later and get stunning results. The only limit is your imagination and creativity!

Major features:

● All photographic parameters are adjustable and always at hand: exposure compensation, ISO, light metering mode, focus mode, white balance and program mode.
● DSLR-like viewfinder display: see exposure time, aperture and stops display with EV and bracketing settings, in real-time!
● Full fledged exposure bracketing: from 3 to 7 frames, unlimited stops spacing, plus custom EV shifting.
● Built-in intervalometer: make stunning timelapses (even bracketed/HDR timelapses) and time-controlled picture series.
● Program and Speed-priority modes.
● Long exposure support: take beautiful night photos and light trails with long exposure times up to 30 seconds**.
● JPEG, true 16-bit RAW in DNG format*, and lossless PNG photo capturing formats, perfect for post-processing.
● Manual shutter speed: from 1/80000 to 2″, or the range available on your device*.
● All camera functions assignable to volume keys. You can adjust EV, ISO, color temperature and more using volume keys. Devices with hardware camera shutter key are also supported.
● EXIF and XMP sidecar metadata support.
● Autofocus, macro, touch-to-focus, true manual focus* and infinity focus modes. Autofocus lock feature (AF-L).
● Autoexposure (AE-L) and auto white balance (AWB-L) locks in Android 4.0+.
● In background photo and RAW developing and processing allows a smooth, uninterrupted camera operation.
● Digital zoom using multitouch pinch gesture. Also shows 35mm equivalent focal length!
● The most advanced electronic viewfinder: live RGB histogram, 10 composition grid overlays and 9 crop guides available.
● Powerful organization options: different storage locations and fully customizable file names (even with variables).
● The user interface is available in more than 30 languages.

This camera application completely avoids scene modes, instead you get full manual control over all photographic parameters, just like you do with a reflex camera, so you can ultimately control every aspect of the picture, and leave the post-processing to the computer. So after your DSLR, you will never miss a photo opportunity again, being able to capture it with the closer sensation to your DSLR as possible.

* Requires Android 5.0+ and a fully compliant Camera2 implementation. Currently only LG Nexus 5 and Motorola Nexus 6.
** Requires Android 5.0+. Compatible as well on the Samsung Galaxy Camera (1 and 2), Galaxy S4 Zoom and HTC One (M8). On Android 4.4 or older, long exposures lowers picture resolution to 2 or 1 MP, depending models. The reason is explained here:

Permissions explained:

– Approximate location and precise location: only used for geotagging functionality (disabled by default, and requires manual GPS activation).
– Modify or delete the contents of your USB storage and take pictures and videos: required for the usual camera operation.


Based on your feedback, we fixed critical issues. The highlights are:
- New option to disable screen dimming while shooting picture series with the intervalometer.
- Fixed corrupted images when using the synthetic exposure mode under certain circumstances.
- Fixed image noise issues on the light trails mode of the synthetic exposure camera mode.
- Fixed file naming options that weren't working before.

    Great app and extra features for long exposure . I have one issue of course, I can’t find in the settings how to keep live frame from switching from portrait to landscape , and it does so with the slightest movement or twitch . It will start rotating but then goes back since I wasn’t ever gonna turn my phone sideways in the first place. I have read your responses to this issue on where to find the lock of view but for whatever reason it’s not there or in any besides rotating pics per degrees

    Yikes! What happened to manual exposure compensation! Not a good thing to get rid of! Do I have to find a new camera app? Thanks, I did find that, and it worked well. Appreciate the response. Next up, having more issues – I can’t get it to output 16:9 images (despite having chosen every 16:9 resolution in the list, it stays on 4:3), and can’t get “tap to take a picture” to work. Enabled or disabled, tapping will focus but not take a picture… Lastly, how does it integrate with video? I’m seeing no option to allow me to shoot video. I think the prior FV5 launched a different app to do that, but I’m not seeing an option for that here… Thanks. Thanks, but now since the update I have the weirdest behavior, I’m not sure how to describe it. If I shoot a portrait photo, the result is it takes the portrait picture and turns it 90 degrees and then stretches the aspect ratio out to landscape, so I end up with a photo that is very wide and short, and on it’s side… Oops….? Sorry guys but I”m really struggling with this and it’s unworkable at the moment.. I uninstalled completely and then reinstalled. I did the Lite version first. It seemed to be working fine – I set up some configuration things but didn’t shoot anything, but the viewfinder image was fine. Then I installed the Pro version, it came up fine but the minute I flipped my phone over on it’s side, BAM, back to the same problem… Help! Update. Just found out Lite works fine on my phone. It’s only the Pro version that goes whacky…

    Major annoyance and bug keeping it from five stars. I use this app for product photography for my e-commerce business. When I lay down the phone with the camera open between photos and pick it back up it’ll often switch from right-handed to left-handed and even when it switches back it will often times take the picture upside down or even sometimes sideways. Most camera apps have an option to lock it in landscape mode and they keep it from switching from right-handed to left-handed.

    Was very excited for the update, it fixed some of the exposure issues I was experiencing. Unfortunately, it will not force geotag (or I just can’t figure out how to do it, I only see one checkbox for geotag). This is an important aspect of photos for me, as I use them to record locations for nature observations (mostly plants). About half of my photos I took one day do not have geotag. Also not a huge fan of the new manual focus method. Moving my thumb left to right on the screen is more difficult than the old up-down, and it requires reselecting the manual focus button between each photo, which is a pain when taking many photos at different levels of focus. Another free app I’ve been using will force geotag and essentially has the same options, so I will be switching back to that for now.
