    If you like the speed of the built-in camera app and the full resolution support in Nokia camera app, you may want to try this.
    Camera 1020 - Photo | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    This app is still in very early beta. I implemented tap-to-shoot, burst mode and basic movie recording.

    This app requires Windows Phone 8.1 Preview.

    Well ill be honest, in opening, speed is way way faster just as you told but there could be done tweaks.
    1--The layout aka menu as it's cluttered and not understandable so since its BETA I'll pass the obstacles
    2--You could also the add the option for 5 Mpx only and 5+34/38 mpx
    depending on aspect ratio
    3-- change aspect ratio
    4--manual controls

    So yeah that's pretty much it but once again, great job on this app and I hope that you do better!

    I'll keep trying to make it easier to use and add more functions, as long as the speed remains faster. And thanks for your feedback!

    I'll follow this.
    It's very fast even on my 520, the only downside is that it doesn't focus properly (or doesn't focus at all) when I take any picture.
    Keep going at it, you need to polish this diamond.

    Did you use tap-to-shoot or clicked the bottom-left icon when taking a picture? The bottom-left icon is to take a picture with infinite focus. I know it has some problem right now.

    Thank you very much. Your effort is really commendable. I have checked the app and its quite fast and I am sure you will be working on the improvements. I would like to suggest to include some basic features such as
    1. preview of photos or link to the photo gallery,
    2. some extra settings like on ProShot camera app which has manual settings like on DSLR

    Hope others will also have more comments on this and eventually hope you will give us a very fast camera app comparable to the native Nokia camera app.

    With Regards

    Sadly not possible unless Microsoft and Nokia open the API for dng.

    Ability to MF and flip the viewfinder on the vertical axis would be awesome! When using a DOF adapter the image is always upside down in the viewfinder, so being able to flip would be a huge win for this app IMO.

    MF will definitely be considered in the future release. I implemented "infinite focus" in the current release. But I notice the picture is a little blurred when taking many landscape scenes (where focus could be considered as infinite). So I need some time to understand how MF works at API level and how the pictures look like when using MF.

    What do you mean "DOF adapter"?

    DOF means "depth of field" if I'm correct.

    It does launch super fast and capture super fast. I'm just curious if it is possible to keep this speed once a ton of manual controls and the over-sampling trick are added.

    I can understand "DOF". Just don't get what "DOF adapter" refers to.

    Do you have Lumia 1020? Did it crash immediately upon startup? Did you see the preview from camera?

    yeah I'm using L1020. Yes it did. No I didn't see the preview. Working fine after opening the second time.

    That's odd. Maybe the first startup requires some special handling in the code which I'm not aware of. I'll give it a try when I reset my Lumia 1020. But it won't happen soon. Glad to hear you can use the app now.

    Focus is not adjustable during movie recording. Looks like the new camera API in WP8.1 is not fully ready in the preview version.

    This app requires Windows Phone 8.1 Preview.
    I will try it and if yellow tint issue gone or greatly reduce and that I will very happy to pay for your app :)
