Simple Camera

Quick photo and video camera with a flash, customizable aspect ratio
New in version 5.4.3
* Added a crashfix
This handy camera app is usable for both easy photo taking and video recording. You can quickly switch between the front and rear camera in this open camera app, modify the save path or limit the resolution for your photo frames. You will never miss the important moments of your life. There are many helpful settings available to make it even more personal, suited for your needs. Let's list some of them.

The flash can be turned on and off or used as a useful flashlight, which is not seen often. You can pinch the screen to zoom in and out or toggle horizontal image swapping during capturing fantastic portrait photos. With this app you can focus on the main object in picture rather than allowing other noises to come in picture.

You can easily change the output resolution, quality, or aspect ratio with a few clicks, as you would expect from a modern open camera app. This applies to both photos and videos. The quality of the images and videos can easily be changed as per your requirement.

After taking a picture you will see the new photo thumbnail, by pressing which you can quickly open it in your preferred gallery using this open camera app. You will see a clear indication of when the photo gets captured, guaranteeing that the file has been saved.

If you want to launch this easy open camera app at pressing your devices' hardware camera button, you might have to disable the built in Camera app in Settings -> Apps -> Camera -> Disable.

You can configure it to use volume buttons as a shutter, or to turn on flashlight by default at startup.

It has multiple other settings related to the shutter sound, flash, photo metadata, photo quality etc. The output file path can be customized, so you can decide where you want your media saved. It supports both the internal storage and SD cards.

It comes with material design and dark theme by default, provides great user experience for easy usage. The lack of internet access gives you more privacy, security and stability than other apps.

Contains no ads or unnecessary permissions. It is fully open camera source, provides customizable colors.
