CameraPro processes images in background, so you can capture more images directly after taking a picture. But CameraPro provides 100% quality (=raw jpeg) by default which results in up to 5 times larger image sizes (like 10 MB instead of 2 MB). Thus sometimes CameraPro can be a little bit slower than the built in camera when taking pictures with 100% quality.
Does CameraPro hack or alter the camera firmware in any way?
No, CameraPro is a stand-alone application which provides the same, or even better, quality and features as some hacks (e.g. HyperX) available but without altering the camera firmware nor the built-in camera app settings.
How can I take pictures in 16:9 format?
When you are in photo mode, please goto “Settings” and change the image size to e.g. “4000×2248”.
How can I record videos?
To switch to video mode goto the “Camera Mode” menu item and select “Video mode”. Video recording is started with the same buttons as used for image capturing.
