High Dynamic Range (HDR)

HDR is a feature that lets you take pictures of scenes with very dark and very light areas. The app takes two photos at different exposures and combines them to make one HDR photo. By default the app will save the original exposures and open an HDR editor but this behaviour can be changed from the settings menu.

See here for details of HDR:

Some features are only available on newer devices.

Camera apps are notoriously difficult to make compatible with all hardware.
Please install and test the trial version first before you buy the paid app.

Please visit our website for tips and more details about the settings and features.
There is a discussion forum here:

Please use this to report bugs, ask questions and suggest new features. Remember to say which device you have and which Android version it is running.

This app will install 2 icons in your launcher, one for the Gallery and one for the Camera. Some launchers also put the Gallery icon on your home screen.

Note that most android 4.4 devices do not allow apps to store data on an external sd card except to an area that is deleted when the app in uninstalled. From the storage location dialog, select "external sd card" to use this area. But remember that if you uninstall the app all your photos will be deleted.

    Using default settings, the HDR feature creates strange looking 8bit color pictures. Unacceptable, it's the only feature I result wanted. I'm more that willing to send the dev an example of the issue.

    Snap Camera is my first Kiwi based app purchase (on my 2nd Google profile) & I have to say that even on my Samsung Galaxy S5 Snap Camera has enhanced the android no end. Such a stylishly huge improvement to the default camera & OCD perfection. Many fabulous settings, sleek presentation in every way with regular update improvements. And for the price one just cannot complain. I love it TOTALLY and

    It's fast and allows you to do manual focus! Uses the Camera 2 API which lets you save RAW image files and even shoot 4K 16x9 video on the Nexus 5. I can finally stop being frustrated with being at the mercy of the default Android Camera app and its finicky focus problems.
