    Anyone have a good camera app recommendation?? I'm not necessarily looking for an editing tool, but something that'll speed up the time between when I hit the shooter and it actually takes a shot. As is, it's just way too slow for me. Trying to take a picture of a moving target is pretty much impossible. Anyone download anything that works?

    My default cam app of choice (since my D1 to my Bionic) has been ACTIONSNAP.
    Awesome effect choices, speedy shooting. I would go free to try it out and, honestly, the free version is pretty great.
    I bought the paid to support an app I found myself using at least once just about every day of the week.
    I don't use any other non-stock camera other than ActionSnap.

    For artsy photos with alot of options, I use Vignette. The best one I have tried so far, though it may not be suited for someone who wants to take lots of shots in a short period of time.

    HDR camera is awesome for scenery shots.

    I saw that one recommended by several websites and checked it out. I think I might get that one as well. I'm still fairly new to the Droid family, so I'm not (and probably won't be) rooted and I just wanted some apps to use instead of the stock ones. Do you have any recommendations for a gallery app? I think I hate the stock one.

    The Blur gallery didn't work with HDR Camera so I installed, and like better, the old 3d Gallery app...

    Action snap pro and Pro HDR Camera work for me. Action snap probably wasnt worth the money but to me, is an improvement over the stock camera ap. As for PRO HDR, holy cow!! What a great camera app! It takes such beautiful photos and the HDR photos have the most amazing depth of field and its easy to take awesome photos or you can go full manual and make them even better. Very happy.

    The stock camera app is capable and gets faster after the first exposure. But this thread got me thinking last week. I used to have a few camera apps on my D1, but I was hoping to just stick with stock on the Bionic.

    But I broke down and tried Camera Zoom Fx. It's a winner. Read the reviews and rankings of camera apps. Very fast shutter response, highly customizable, GREAT pix on the Bionic, and very stable. Excellent app. I should not have waited!

    Is it buggy on your phone? I got that last week and although I liked it, it started acting weird on my phone. Specifically, half the pics I take with it come out corrupted or something. The file saved can't be reopened. I see the thumbnail in the gallery, but it won't load when I click on it. I get an error message instead. I tried opening it with the stock gallery as well as Gallery 3D and QuickPic. I ended up uninstalling it and I'm using Vignette again, but thinking about trying out HDR Camera.

    I'd suggest looking for any directories left behind by Camera Zoom Fx and try re-installing it. On my Bionic it runs 100% stable, very fast and the pix are great. Can't imagine why our Bionics would be so different!

    That HDR Camera looks sweet, but I was looking at a "review" at and I don't think it would work for me as it seems to work best with a stationary object.
    I currently have Pro Zoom Camera 5X, but I had gotten that for my OG Droid and, while it works, there may be better. I've heard good things about Vignette, but Camera Zoom FX looks good too.

    I've found several Youtube reviews of the different camera apps so you can see what it would be like to use it.

    I had purchased Pro Zoom for my D1 too. Didn't like it enough to even try it on my Bionic. Camera Zoom Fx is quite different. Much better IMO.

    I've used Vingette and Camera Zoom FX both on my D2. I tried both out, and for some reason, when zooming in on Vignette, it's a bit blurrier than Camera Zoom FX. Also, Camera Zoom FX seems to take pictures faster with better quality if you ask me.

    I just reinstalled Camerazoom. I set it up to save to my external SD like I did last time. Hopefully I wont get any corrupted files again.... I keep hearing good things about them and when it's working on my phone it works great, but it just wasn't saving half the pics I was taking. So, **crossing fingers**

    I'm hoping the ICS camera app will run on GB, would love to give that a try before ICS or a custom ICS ROM comes to the Bionic!
