The original Samsung Galaxy Camera is one of the finest cameras to hit the market in recent times. It allows you to do some magical professional digital photography on the go. The camera features 16 Megapixels image quality, the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS and a specially designed camera app which is packed with some amazing features for quick advanced professional photography.
If you own a Samsung Galaxy S4 that is both rooted and running a custom recovery, and if you are interested in enjoying all the cool features of the original Galaxy Camera then you no longer need to buy the Galaxy Camera thanks to a senior member, LastStandingDroid at XDA Developers who is working hard in bringing the Galaxy Camera app to Galaxy S4 completely.
Some features that the ported app currently owns are:
- Taking photos and videos
- Beauty Face
- Slow and Fast Motion
- Working with both front and back cameras
As the port is still incomplete and the work is still in progress, with the passage of time some more features such as Best Face, Burst Shot (camera freezing), Eraser, Sound and Shoot, animated photo, Dual View etc are expected to be included in the app too.
