**** VIDEO MODE ****
*** Please note that VIDEO MODE is still under testing and does not work on all devices/firmwares ***

- Video / expert video mode (HD video greater than 720x480p is in Beta and works only on some phone models)

Expert video mode (excerpt)
- Automatic bypassing of recording time respectively file size limit by means of file splitting (short gap possible between files)
- Disable audio recording
- Adjust audio channels, sampling rate, audio/video bitrates, frame rates, audio/video codecs, video container format, video dimensions*
- Supports 1080p video recording (e.g. Galaxy S2 GT9100)*

IMPORTANT LIMITATIONS
- For video resolutions greater than 720x480 set focus mode to "Continuous" if available. Else recording might start delayed (app looks as if it hangs for some seconds on the Samsung Galaxy S2)
- Zooming and picture controls can only be modified BEFORE video recording
- Changing from continuous autofocus to some other focus mode can be very slow
- Sometimes the direct HD video preview in the video player (started from CameraPro) shows only a black screen. When the player is started manually the video play back is fine.
- If updating from CameraX fails, uninstall CameraX before installing CameraPro.
- Video recording on some HTC devices and on all devices with Android 2.2 and older is only partly supported

    I bought this app when it was previously listed. I bought it again. I have been waiting for a reply from Harald and team. Hope they'll help me resolve problem with video. Even after the recent upgrade, there hasn't been any improvement for my device

    I've used this app years ago on my Nokia N8 and it made the already excellent camera even more fantastic. Now running this on my Samsung S4 it's leaps ahead of many other camera replacement apps currently available for Android.

    Having tried several dozens of camera apps, free and paid ones, I am left with some favorites (Vignette, in example), but this is the one I most frequently fall back to using these days. On LG P880, the stock camera is pretty good but lacks support for actually remembering settings like ISO, White Balance, ... on closing, so I was looking for another "day-to-day" camera. Here, CameraPro just perfe
