Open Camera is a popular open-source camera application developed by british software engineer Mark Harmam for Android-based mobile phones.
OpenCamera is focused on functionality and aimed towards power users, being equipped with a feature-rich user interface, fine manual camera controls (for exposure, light sensitivity, focus, exposure value), RAW photography, an artificial horizon, a real-time histogram, exposure bracketing, focus bracketing, toggling the phone's LED torch during video recording, and custom settings for resolution, frame rate and bit rate.
Although the application is backwards-compatible to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, some of these features require Android Lollipop (5.0) or higher due to the Camera V2 API, introduced in Android 5.
It is able to show ISO light sensitivity in real time and supports slow motion video.
