    Hi, I have a Lumia 520 & after the 8.1 update the new camera app (with the burst features) takes ages to load and focus

    How do I get the old app back, or is there a little camera app (I already have proshot) that loads and fires quick when I am in a hurry?

    I found the stock Microsoft Camera to be the fastest.

    Nokia Camera Beta is my typical choice though.

    from black screen (inactive) to snapping the photo its taking 9 seconds on my 520. it was considerably faster with the bare bones nokia camera app (not the beta with the burst mode) . this lag appeared after updating to 8.1 & i would imagine is related to all the extra features in the new camera app
    i have lost countless shots due to this lag.

    my lumia used to be so good & quick as a camera i stopped using my sony compact.

    MS / Nokia please address this
