    Hey all,
    Loving my razr. One of the reasons I bought it was photos on the go without having to lug around a dedicated camera. I see a lot of people that like camera zoom fx. I've been searching online for the past few days and couldn't find comparison photos between the stock/default camera app and camera zoom fx. Seems odd not to be able to find anything, maybe my google-fu is just too weak. I know it's just $2.99 but yeah I'm cheap.

    Thanks!

    I used the app for a small time and did not see any difference other than effects available for an image.

    Camera Zoom on the left and Stock on the right. I have to re-download Camera Zoom because I never found it to be better or worse from the stock. I can take some more if you like.

    Again Camera Zoom on the left and Stock on the right, Camera Zoom decided it needed flash for the picture so I let it do that. And both of these cameras are stock settings I am not one to tinker with what I don't need to.

    Thanks a lot for going to the trouble, sydman. photo of the fan I like the stock app better, compared to the updated photo. But the photo czf wanted a flash and the stock app did not, the czf photo looks better.

    IL for now... waiting for the day we can move back
    not that the OP asked but I have been researching camera apps lately and didn't want to spend money til I saw pictures too. Its only a few dollars here and there but when you add them up when you are just comparing it can get costly. I saw one app only gave you 10 mins to return it (wasn't a camera app but the point is these time lines do exist)

    Anyway... I found 'HDR camera', it's free and my test pics so far have looked incredible compared to stock. I will have more time to really test it over the weekend.

    If you do find any other comparison photos I hope you post them or other members post some that they have :)

    Also check out Camera ICS. I've been able to consistently get sharper, less blurry shots from it compared to the stock app and CameraFX.

    Another vote for camera ics. I deleted zoom fx in favor of it.

    I'm a meathead when it comes to photography. I was hoping a photography geek would have a detailed write up telling me this is what you should get :p. Since that wasn't available I decided for the price of a cup of coffee I could roll the dice on CZF. Not a good day for sunrise pics of the golden gate bridge, thick cloud cover. Which one is "better"

    For me, CamerZoomFX gives me the "Instagram" effect I like without having to sign up for another social network.:icon_ lala:
