Do you want to capture RAW photos with your mobile camera? This ported Google Camera HDR+ app will not only allow you to shoot in raw image format but also give you full control of manual photography. It means you can experience DSLR-like features by manually adjust your camera settings including High Dynamic Range (HDR), manual exposure, change shutter speed, adjust the f-stop (aperture), change ISO, and so on. All of these advanced features are included in a single cool Android app.
This advanced camera app is basically available only on Google devices like Google Pixel 2. Thankfully, one of the cool developers at XDA has managed to port the app. Hence, a non-google device can now enjoy taking good quality photos using their mobile phones.
Sounds awesome right? It is a really must-have app for a mobile photography geek! The best part, it also sports an amazing feature called Zero Shutter Lag (ZSL). A shutter lag is basically the time difference between when the shutter button is clicked in your camera and when the picture is recorded in your phone album. “Zero” means a literally zero time to wait. In other words, the time needed is zero. It allows you to instantly capture photos with direct viewing of any detail. Moreover, you will also get fastest available shot-to-shot time with better clarity and response.
This camera has been tested and proven work on LG G6, OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, OnePlus 5, Samsung Galaxy S8 (Snapdragon), Xiaomi Mi5S, and LG V20. However, since the app was initially ported to Xiaomi devices, it should also work on Redmi 4X, Redmi Note 4, and most of the recent Qualcomm-powered MIUI devices.
