Camera FV-5

Sometimes Good things come with a little limitation.

Why am I saying that?

Because the situation is same as in Camera FV-5 Lite.

It gives us much control over the camera.

But the reason for which I am listing it at the bottom is that its free camera app doesn’t give us that much flexibility.

The biggest drawback is that it only gives us the resolution of 2 megapixels.

That is too much rude.

camera fv5

But if that is not a matter of concern for you,

Then Camera FV-5 is for you.

Or you can buy its pro version.

Which, in my opinion, doesn’t make any sense.

As you can experience the same feature on the camera apps I have listed above.

But camera apps always have some unique features.

To download Camera FV-5 Lite, click Here.

Unique features of Camera FV-5 lite

Focus Mode: Camera FV-5 lite has got some of the best Focus Modes.

These can help you in taking your pictures with precision from your Android camera app.

You have to manually explore them to get the one which exactly suits your condition.

Shutter Speed: Camera FV-5 Lite also allows us to change the shutter speed priority.

Just like which you can do in Bacon Camera App.

It contains all the basic features like ISO, White Balance, Exposure, Burst Mode and some others.

All these will boost up your Android photography experience.

But all this come at the cost of reduced image quality.

The choice is always yours.

You can always give Open Camera a try.

Open Camera will satisfy all your basic needs.

The reason why I have listed it below is that of its UI.

In my opinion, the UI seems to be a little bit complicated for beginners.

But if you are okay with the UI,
