    Good Morning I woke up this morning with a YouTube notification that Mike Barrett created a 4K video on the Nexus 6 with HTC Camera app. So I checked it out and it looks great. Anyone else try this out, let me know what you think? I have the links below the video for the downloads..



    Camera APK - http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/htc-cor...c-corporation/

    Gallery APK - http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/htc-cor...c-corporation/

    Do I have to install the camera port or only the apk from the camera app? And do I have to install the gallery or does it work with the stock photos app?

    I installed only the apk's not the port.... And I installed both the gallery and the camera...all my photos are still showing up in google photo and in the HTC Gallery.

    Interesting, seems to work well. I don't find an HDR setting and I can't seem to manually adjust ISO but neither are really a huge deal to me just observations. And the gallery seems to not allow you to long press on a thumbnail and select multiples to mass delete which is sort of annoying.
    Nice otherwise.

    Hi, that looks amazing!

    I'd very much like to give this a try, but I'm not sure I understand what I need to do. Is it literally a matter of downloading that one file you posted the link to, and installing it (on an unrooted Nexus 6)? What will that actually install? The HTC camera app?

    Sorry for the newbie questions!

    Thanks!

    Yes install both and you get the camera and HTC gallery. I am using that as my main shooter now.

    Does the video mode do slow motion if you install?

    The HTC app is just as slow as the stock nexus camera app (with the flash on). I'm struggling to see any significant benefits?

    EDIT - OK, it can do 4k video, just found that. I'm assuming that's it? The camera part seems to be just as bad as stock app?

    The "shutter" seems faster than the stock google cam, I wouldn't call either of them slow really. Least I've had a lot worse.
    Word on XDA is one needs to flash a zip and some other thing to get all the functions, might work better then too.

    Takes better pictures than the HTC phones that use the camera software.. Shame how bad HTC screwed up with M9 lens.. Just proves it actually is hardware and not a software issue since this is taking way better pictures with this software than it did the short time I had the M9

    Does it do slow motion video? I might install it just for that.

    That stinks. I want a good slow motion app for my phone! Nothing even decent on the Store.

    In order to shoot reasonably good slow motion video, the camera hardware and associated electronics must be capable of very high frame rates. There is a good explanation here: Tips For Shooting the Best Slow-Motion Video

    An app cannot change the basic structure of your phone's camera system.

    I guess our cameras can't handle that?

    Well, I am guessing that you tried various apps ("I want a good slow motion app for my phone! Nothing even decent on the Store.") without success, so perhaps you are running up against Nexus 6 hardware limitations.

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhh! You sideload it! (I never even noticed the links below the video!)

    I spent way too much time last night whining about not being able to find it on the Play Store.

    Course, that third beer probably didn't help.

    Hard to believe since my Moto G 2014 had slow motion video and that phone only cost me $179
