I Installed The “Camera FV-5” App On My Google Pixel 2 — Best $4 I EVER Spent!

Study the detail … like the FUZZ on the yellow flower.

No post-processing whatsoever!


Click to access Android APP at the Google Play Store.

Click to access the official Homepage for the APP.

The Google Pixel 2 Camera APP has NO manual controls whatsoever! I kid you not.

Google believes that the APPs AI-based workings is far superior to what a human can achieve. That could very well be the case.

But, I miss not having any MANUAL control over focus.

‘Camera FV’ is brilliant on this score. Has a very easy to use MF mode along with Focus Assist magnification. To me that is THE BIGGIE. Changing ISO etc. is nice, BUT the Google Pixel 2 has a fixed aperture lens. So, this won’t get me that much.

Being able to change the metering mode, on the fly, however, is nice.

Also, you can ask it to give you digital camera like file IDs. Brilliant. I had struggled with the lack of that daily.
